ANZ have an offer underway for their ANZ Black Frequent Flyer card,Â offering the chance of 75,000 Qantas Points as a new customer, and waives the annual fee for the first year.
In order to get the 75,000 points, there is a significant spend hurdle – you will need to spend $7,500 on purchases in the first three months of having the card.
The annual fee waiver (in the first year) represents a significant saving, as the annual fee is normally $425 each year.
Benefits of the Black Card
The ANZ Black cards fit at the premium end of the ANZ offerings, and have a range of included features, as you would expect from a card with a $425 price tag.
First up, it comes with a decent Qantas Points earn rate. The Visa card brings in 1.5 Qantas Points for every $2 charged to the card, while the American Express card brings in twice the number of points, at 1.5 points per dollar. The card also pays an extra point for each dollar spent on selected Qantas products, and unlike the other ANZ cards, there is no points cap.
The card also comes with some loung benefits. On the Qantas front, there are two Qantas Club invites for each year you hold the card. It also offers a discounted membership to the Qantas Club (which includes a joining fee waiver, and also a discounted annual rate).
Outside of the Qantas Lounge offers, the card also provides unlimited access to participating airport lounges outside Australia, through Veloce regardless of airline or fare.
Finally, there are the usual range of premium inclusions such as a concierge service, and a range of insurance coverages often included with cards of this level.
It is worth keeping in mind that over the last year, ANZ have tigthened the criteria for awarding the sign on points for their cards, and exclude anyone that has closed a Frequent Flyer credit card account in the previous twelve months.
