Summing up: ANZ Rewards Platinum
The ANZ Rewards Platinum is the middle-ground on ANZ’s Rewards cards range, offering almost all the features of the ANZ Rewards Black but with a lower earn rate, points cap and annual fee.
With a program like ANZ Rewards, the key benefit is in the additional options that having many program transfer partners on offer gives when it comes to redeeming your hard-earned points. It does make managing your points a little more time-consuming as you have to factor that into your travel plans.
ANZ would also like us to include the following disclaimer.
Reward Points accrue in accordance with the ANZ Rewards – Rewards Program Terms and Conditions booklet (please call 13 13 14 for a copy). Purchases which are not eligible to earn Rewards Points are described in the ANZ Rewards – Rewards Program Terms and Conditions booklet, e.g. fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, balance transfers and transactions for gambling or gaming purposes will not earn Reward Points.
