The ANZ Frequent Flyer Black comes with a mammoth $425 annual fee (wiped for the first year). Thankfully that's balanced by some eye-catching inclusions for the frequent flyer and big spender. You can save up to $475 in your first year of Qantas Club membership using your Frequent Flyer Black card to purchase Qantas Club membership.
For the first $7,500 you spend each month, you'll earn 1 point for every $1 you spend, but keep in mind that after you hit that spending limit, you'll only earn 0.5 points per $1 for the rest of the month.
You'll get 2 la-di-da Qantas Club Lounge visits each year and unlimited access to participating airport lounges outside Australia, perfect for when you just want to kick back and relax after a long flight. There's also plenty of premium features - including overseas travel and medical insurance and personal concierge. In fact, the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card picked up 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Award for its complimentary insurance offers.
Shopaholics can rest easy with a 12 month extended warranty for most major purchases. You also get 90-day purchase security insurance against theft, loss and accidental damage on most purchases. Bargain hunters, let's not forget the best price guarantee scheme helping you to hunt down the best price on your purchases made in Australia.
You'll also get awesome Visa entertainment options, providing you with access to special events, exclusive merchandise packages and home entertainment products.
Keep in mind, this is for someone who pays off their credit card in full each month due to the high 19.99% standard interest rate but you do get 55 interest free days. And if you make purchases overseas you'll have to pay the 3% foreign exchange margin.
Who it's good for:
There's a few things you need to tick of the list to be eligible for the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black, such as you must be over 18, earn over $75,000 and an Australian resident, Australian/New Zealand citizen or have a valid Australian work visa. But primarily you have to love jet-setting or shopping...or both!
While you have the flexibility to add up to 9 additional ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit cardholders to your account - Uncle Bob and Aunty Fanny are sure to love - there's an additional $65 card fee.
