Expensive but rewarding

Reviewed and recommended by Brian on 21 Oct 2016

I got this card as part of my ANZ home loan, so its fees are minimised as a result. I wouldn’t get this card as a standalone product due to the high fees, but as a part of a package.

The frequent flyer points ratio is high compared to other cards out there.

It's been convenient and reliable

Reviewed and recommended by Wayne on 09 Oct 2016

I’m happy with this card as it’s convenient and easy to use for my family.

I have received great assistance when making any enquiries into any queries that might have occurred during its use, and feel safe in having this card with this bank. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

High fee but high rewards

Reviewed and not recommended by Tony on 27 Sep 2016

It has a very high fee and high rewards. If you are not a big spender, then don’t use this card. However if you spend lots of money, you may even need the rewards.

Go with a lower rate, low fee card

Reviewed and not recommended by Anne on 26 Sep 2016

The annual fee on this credit card is quite high. The interest rate is pretty high also, but there’s a fairly decent awards program with variety of awards to choose from.

Another major negative is that it takes a long time to earn enough points to redeem a decent award. There aren’t really any decent awards that don’t cost a ridiculous number of points. You end up needing to spend tens of thousands of dollars in order to earn enough points to redeem a decent award.

There are many awards programs on offer by any number of different banks that offer the same credit card types but with a much lower interest rate and, most importantly, a much cheaper annual fee.

Enjoy the multiple rewards

Reviewed and recommended by Natnat on 20 Sep 2016

Every dollar spent on this card earns you points, transferable to anything you wish.

The upfront cost is high, but is easily covered by rewards during the year. Qantas points can be used at the Qantas site or for groceries, electricity, flights, clothes, hardware, gift cards, kitchen appliances and virtually anything you can think of.

Rewards, insurance and concierge

Reviewed and recommended by Kerry on 20 Sep 2016

They have great fraud protection. You can be rewarded for your everyday purchases and access a flexible rewards program with complimentary insurances and personal concierge.

If you’re making purchases on your credit card, you should get something back. You have the flexibility to redeem reward points on a wide range of rewards, including gift cards, merchandise and cashback. With two cards you could earn more rewards and there’s no cap to the number of reward points you can earn.

ANZ Rewards Platinum also comes with a range of complimentary insurances.

Best card I have ever owned

Reviewed and recommended by Elaine on 20 Sep 2016

The ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum Visa card is the best card i have ever owned. it has a long payment period, good interest rate, a low fee, and is accepted all over the world with no hassles.

Also there is an American Express rewards card attached at no extra charge. with only one payment on one account, which is so convenient. i

t has a lot of benefits, the best one being travel insurance. i would never change it.

Great value and features

Reviewed and recommended by Andrew on 17 Sep 2016

ANZ look after me well and I fully recommend them.

The features and rewards from the card make it easy to travel, to shop and to pay bills in a very efficient manner.

The payWave feature allows the speed of interaction to be quick and clean — a great feature.

Convenient and handy card

Reviewed and recommended by Michael on 16 Sep 2016

Very happy indeed with the card. It covers all our travel insurance and is extremely useful at all times. We have used it in England, Singapore, Darwin, Adelaide, Sydney, and wherever we go in Western Australia. It is just so convenient and handy.

I am so glad we have it and don’t believe I would be happy with a different one.

Would prefer lower interest rate

Reviewed and recommended by Rebecca on 10 Aug 2016

While I have had this card for sometime I would like to be seen as a valued customer and be rewarded with a cheaper interest rate. I do not need extra bits and pieces which I never use . . . so value me more . . . otherwise I may as well have any other card.
