ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum Review

Rates and fees information correct as at 16 December 2017.

Review published: 18 December 2012

What's hot:

  • 65,000 bonus Qantas Points

  • $0 annual fee in the first year

  • 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Award

What's not:

  • $295 ongoing annual fee

Mozo snapshot:

You'll be flying fast with the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum credit card, which received a 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Award. You'll receive 65,000 bonus Qantas Points after you've made $2,500 worth of eligible purchases within the first three months. If you're a frequent flyer who will use the complimentary travel insurance, concierge services and want to earn points exclusively with Qantas then this credit card is worthy of your attention.

Key features:

With the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum credit card you'll earn 0.75 points for every dollar spent up to $3,000 each month. After you hit that limit, you'll then only earn 0.5 points for ever dollar.

Points are automatically transferred to the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program every month. If you're not already a member of Qantas you will receive complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership saving you $89.50.

There is a $295 annual card fee but this is wiped for the first year. The purchase rate of the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum credit card is 19.99% so this is not a card you want to carry large amounts of debt on. Pay off your balance in full each month and you'll get up to 55 interest free days.

Some of the award-winning platinum privileges you'll get with the card include: overseas travel and medical insurance, rental car cover, interstate flight inconvenience insurance, extended warranty insurance, purchase security insurance. 

Your card will come with Visa Paywave functionality so that you can tap and go for purchases under $100. When overseas your Frequent Flyer Platinum Card will be accepted anywhere that Visa is and there will be a 3% foreign currency conversion added to any overseas purchases, whether made online or in person.

Who it's good for:

This credit card is best suited to loyal Qantas frequent flyers as all points are redeemed via the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.

Any catches?

You'll need to be earning at least $50,000 annually to apply for the Qantas Frequent Flyer Platinum Card and the bonus point offer is only available to new ANZ credit card customers.

Happy customer

The customer service is of a very high standard and waiting time is very quick. Any problems I have had are quickly resolved. For example, I used an old Bpay account and the money was returned as well as another incorrect charge was returned.

There was a lot of muck around when we upgraded from Frequent flyer to the platinum card. I also think the annual fee is really exorbitant and then you have to pay a reasonably large fee for extra card holder which is frustrating for us because my other half works away and we need to have seperate cards to max the points benefits.

Revealing rewards

How do we do it?

To work out the "Rewards value minus fees" in our Rewards Revealer we:

  • calculate how many points you'd get each year,
  • figure out how many flights or gift cards or cashback credits you could get for those points,
  • work out what that's actually worth to you,
  • take off the annual fee you'd pay.

More details:

  • Our calculations are designed to help you compare the value of different rewards schemes. To do this, we've looked at earning a one-way Sydney-Melbourne flight excluding taxes and charges, a return Sydney-London flight excluding taxes and charges, a $100 shopping Gift Card and $100 cashback. Most cards will also offer other rewards, which may be worth more or less than the ones we've shown.
  • We have made no allowance for bonus points for using your card at specific merchants, introductory offers or special offers. We have not assigned any value to instant discounts, insurances, ticketing and concierge services or other such benefits.
  • Rewards value calculations do not take credit card interest into account. If you do not pay off your card each month you may be better off looking for a card based on interest rates than on the value of rewards.
  • In products that have more than one card, a different mix of spend between American Express / Visa / Mastercard will give different results. Mozo's Rewards Revealer lets you choose the mix based on the way you would use such a product, and gives you tailored results.
  • We assume flights purchased with airline points are 'classic' or 'reward' economy seats with restricted seat availability. 'Any seat' rewards will probably cost more.
  • To compare the value of flight rewards, we sample online retail flight prices once a quarter based on the average price on a Wednesday 3 months in advance but outside NSW school holidays. For domestic flights we take the lowest available fare from each flight on that day from Qantas Red e-deal, Virgin Australia Saver including baggage and Jetstar Starter including baggage. We calculate the average price excluding taxes and surcharges for each airline, and also the average across all airlines (which we use when rewards are travel agent vouchers). For international flights, we take the lowest available fares on that same Wednesday from each of Qantas, Emirates, Malaysian, Etihad, Singapore, Cathay Pacific and Thai, assuming a return flight 2 weeks later, calculate the average price before taxes and surcharges and use this as our assumed cost of a flight on any airline.
  • Shopping rewards are based on $100 gift cards from a major national department store.
  • We make every effort to ensure our calculations are correct and up to date but make no guarantees.
