This is a deal for the ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum credit card. Just wanted to post this as the platinum has a lower income requirement than the ANZ Black card, but still has decent bonus points:

  • 65,000 bonus Qantas points when you spend $2,500 on eligible purchases in the first 3 months
  • $0 annual fee for the first year, $295 per year after

Have also linked to other deals related to the other ANZ credit cards with bonus rewards points and $0 credit card fee for the first year:
* ANZ Rewards Black card (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/332333) marked expired but still valid on the website
* ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/371174) marked expired but still valid on the website
* ANZ Rewards Platinum card which offers 65,000 reward points and $0 fee for first year: https://www.anz.com.au/personal/credit-cards/rewards/platinu…

Basic requirements for it:
– Be 18 years of age or over
– Have a good credit rating
– Be a permanent Australian resident, earning a minimum annual income of $35,000
– Be a non-Australian permanent resident with more than 9 months remaining on your Visa, earning a minimum income annual income of $35,000
– Ensure if applying for an offer, you don’t currently hold and haven’t opened or closed an ANZ Frequent Flyer Black, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum, ANZ – – Frequent Flyer Gold or an ANZ Frequent Flyer credit card in the last 12 months and meet all other offer eligibility criteria

TIPS:
Seems like you can also apply and be eligible for both the ANZ Rewards credit cards bonuses based on the last point.
Beware your credit score will drop, and don’t spend more than you can pay back without incurring interest.
Also, take note of the 12 month period when you have taken up these credit cards (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/381968)
