ANZ has launched a new credit card that gives customers a complimentary return flight within Australia, uncapped frequent flyer points and no overseas transaction fees on international purchases.
As an added bonus, holders of the new ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures card also receive two complimentary lounge passes each year with Virgin Australia.
ANZ Managing Director Products and Marketing, Matt Boss, said: “We developed this market-leading card specifically for customers who want to travel, and it represents great value for them.
“Not only do they get a great card they can use for everyday purchases, they also get a return flight within Australia with Virgin Australia and two Virgin Australia single entry lounge passes each year, and no overseas transaction fees on purchases or international retail websites.
“ANZ is the only major Australian bank to offer a card with all these features and we are still the only Australian bank to offer customers a digital wallet whether they have an Apple or Android smartphone, which this new card will work with.”
The Rewards Travel Adventures card is now available as an ANZ Visa and American Express card.
Frequent flyer points
As an American Express and Platinum-grade Visa combo account, every dollar spent awards two ANZ Rewards points via the AMEX and one ANZ Rewards point using the Visa.
This can be converted into Virgin Australia Velocity points on a 2:1 basis.
You can also ship those points to Cathay Pacific Asia Miles and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer on a 3:1 basis or swap 3,000 ANZ Rewards points for $15 in Air New Zealand Airpoints value.
The new card provides one complimentary Virgin Australia domestic return flight and two Virgin Australia Lounge passes each year. It also offers complimentary overseas travel and medical insurance, 55 days interest free on purchases and no fees on purchases made overseas.
Customers simply need to spend $500 in the first three months to activate these benefits, which are then offered every year just by paying the annual fee of $225.
