ANZ are offering 50,000 bonus Qantas Points and $195 back to your card for new applicants of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum.
There’s also an offer of 120,000 bonus Qantas Points and $275 back with the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black which we cover in a separate guide here.
A minimum spend of $2,000 within the first 3 months is required to receive the 50,000 bonus Qantas Points and the $195 credit, which helps to offset the $295 annual fee. Eligible purchases cover most transactions, with the normal exclusions of fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, balance transfers and transactions for gambling or gaming.
This guide covers the earn rates, caps and benefits of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum.
