Signing up to the ANZ Rewards Program? Here’s what you need to know

 

Whether you’re a fan of the cinema or addicted to travel, the ANZ Rewards Program is fit for any kind of freebie lover. 

The ANZ Rewards Program allows spenders to earn points on their everyday purchases, which can then be redeemed for rewards, such as gift cards and entertainment experiences. And if travel is more your thing, you’re in luck, as you can use your points for free flights or hotel accommodation. And if you choose to flash your plastic at one of ANZ’s bonus partners, you’ll be able to earn extra bonus points. 

Speaking of bonus points, nearly all ANZ rewards cards come with a generous bonus points offer, helping you get your points stash off to a fantastic start.
