    I am already a Qantas club member – do I get any discount/refund if I use the card to pay for my renewal?

    • Staff
      May | July 19, 2016

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, there is no discount/refund given to you if you will use your ANZ Frequent Flyer Black to pay for your Qantas Club membership renewal. The savings of $475 on Qantas club membership fee is for the joining fee waiver offered by ANZ to card new applicants who are not yet a member of Qantas Frequent Flyer program and who register at the Qantas website.

      Cheers,
      May

    I obtained a ANZ Qantas Black Card in April and have made well over the qualifying purchases to obtain the 75k bonus points. When will the bonus points appear in my FF account ?

    • Staff

      Hi Tony,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Once you meet the spend criteria to earn the 75,000 bonus Qantas points, the points will be credited to your ANZ account within three months. Please note that if you transfer or cancel your new ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card account before the bonus points are credited, you may become ineligible for these bonus Qantas Points.

    Question on Travel benefits. If you use your ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card to pay for Qantas Club membership, you can save up to $475 in the first year.

    Is this paid as a credit back to the account, after I pay for the membership myself? Also is it an ongoing saving (subsequent years), or just for the first year?

    • Staff
      Anndy | June 6, 2016

      Hi Steve,

      Thanks for your comment.

      The $475 is the savings you can get (for the first year only) if you will use your ANZ Frequent Flyer Black card to pay for Qantas Club membership annual fee. This is offer is based upon a joining fee waiver and a discount to the standard one-year individual membership rate. Furthermore, the joining fee waiver is offered by ANZ and is available to new applicants or existing ANZ Frequent Flyer credit card account holders who are not already Qantas Frequent Flyer members and who apply for membership online at the Qantas website.

      If you already paid your Qantas membership prior to your card application and approval, I’m afraid that the $475 will not be credited back to your ANZ Frequent Flyer Black account.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    Good afternoon.
    I am currently already a member of QFF.

    Will I be able to keep all points accumulated including the joining bonus of 75,000 points if I do not wish to keep my ANZ FF Black after one year?

    • Staff
      Anndy | June 2, 2016

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for your comment.

      If you cancel or close this card, you will be able to keep your accumulated points, provided you adhere to the following ANZ Frequent Flyer terms and conditions:

      “…if ANZ or the Account Holder closes the Card account, Points will continue to be awarded under these terms and conditions in relation to transactions occurring prior to the date of closure, provided that ANZ receives notice of the transaction and the Account Holder’s Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number within 60 days after the date of closure. No Points will be awarded in relation to transactions notified to ANZ after that date. If ANZ does not receive the Account Holder’s Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number within 60 days after the date of closure, the Points in the Points Record in respect of the Card as at that date will be cancelled and may not be credited to a Qantas Frequent Flyer program account.”

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    If I cancel card in first year of membership , do I pay any fees ?

    • Staff
      May | June 2, 2016

      Hi Danny, thanks for getting back!

      Just confirming, are you referring to the Qantas Club membership? If so, yes, you may, at any time, cancel your membership by providing written notice to Qantas. Upon receipt of a written notice, Qantas will cancel your membership and all accumulated Qantas Points in your account will immediately expire. There is also no fee to cancel.

      Cheers,

      Hi Danny,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can cancel or close this card at anytime so long you have paid off all the outstanding balance on the account. Cancellation is free of charge.

    Chris | June 1, 2016

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if ANZ can supply BOTH the amex and visa rather than just one or the other? If not possible for the primary card holder, if I was to opt for a second card holder would I have the choice between the AMEX or VISA for that card?

    Cheers.

    • Staff
      May | June 6, 2016

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your question.

      The primary and the additional cardholder of ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card will receive both the AMEX and Visa cards.

      Hope this has answered your question.

      Cheers,

    Ben | May 26, 2016

    Hi there, I currently have a ANZ FF platinum card and was thinking about stepping up to the black, but I understand neither the points, nor annual fee benefits are available for existing cardholders:(

    My wife is a secondary cardholder on my current A/c – my question is if she applies as primary cardholder on the black will she get the points and fees waived? If not how long must we cancel our existing ANZ cards for until I will be eligible for the benefits? Thanks!

    • Staff
      Ysa | May 30, 2016

      Hi Ben,

      Thanks for your question.

      As long as your wife has not previously held any ANZ card or has been a primary cardholder within the past twelve months, then she should be eligible for the annual fee waiver and bonus points offer.

      I hope this has answered your question.

      Cheers,
      Ysa

    I held an ANZ Qantas card about two years ago. If I take out the ANZ Frequent Flyer Black Card, will I receive the 75,000 QFF points?

    • Staff
      Anndy | May 24, 2016

      Hi Cambo,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you have closed or cancelled your old ANZ credit card for 2 years now, you will be eligible to receive the 75,000 bonus points provided you meet the other eligibility criteria for earning points.

      After your application has been approved and your credit card activated, you must make $2,500 worth of eligible purchases within three months of approval. Please note that the bonus offer applies only once per eligible customer.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

    When traveling overseas, what is the QFF points earn rate for each of the cards?

    (understand in Oz it is 1.5 = Amex & .75 VC per dollar)

    • Staff
      May | May 24, 2016

      Hi BB,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, that’s correct. When making an eligible purchase using your ANZ Frequent Flyer Black Credit Card in Australia and overseas, for every dollar spent you’ll get 1.5 Qantas Points for AMEX and 0.75 Qantas Point for Visa.
