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.
