    I was knocked back for any card, even $1000 limit. Very high income from multiple jobs, rental properties, investments etc but too much existing debt.
    Also if you are paid by ABN you need to have lodged FY2020 tax return to provide to them or ANZ will not include that income.
    A bit of a waste of time.

      no such thing as too much debt

    They just called me up and had very different financial numbers to what I entered.

    Had my income too high equivalent of $250k+ which I'm not on.
    Then had expenses way too high, $2000 a week on mortgage!!
    $650 a week on car etc.
    Some others were right though.

    So had to correct them, still said I was earning less than what I spend which is simply untrue.
    About half of my income goes into savings which I don't touch.

    Got rejected, pretty annoyed as feel like the mistake was on their end, but may have just been a way to get out of it, lost the lottery…
    $500 voucher would have been handy to buy a new CPU from Amazon :(

    •  

      Same with me, she said i was getting $4600 a week before tax 🤣 also said i was spending $5000 a month on food… dont get how it can get everthing so worng, even after going and fixing all the amounts she still said they i could not use my payslips as it had an extra covid pay that i did NOT included in what i was payed.

  •  

    Just got a call today and approved. I didn’t opt in for any balance transfer. Will I still receive the $ 500 gift card ?

    • +1 vote

      I think the conditions just confused some people, clearly dont need to transfer, its just you can only get 0% transfer at sign up

    Hi guys , do you know what eligible purchases are ? And what type of gift card would you get ?

    A lot of comments had me worried, but just got the approval text message saying card etc are on their way. I applied for the minimum $6k.

    After the initial application, was asked straight away to upload 3 months of payslips and a rental statement for my IP. No other requests or phone calls.

    Approval received around 26 hours after I uploaded the above.

    got approved around 5 pm card is on its way, applied on Monday night, was asked to upload my current job contract and 3 months payslips , no phone calls.

    haha, I asked to drop my documents at the bank and they said OK! 5 min later I receive a email saying that my application was refused. this happened before, so I will keep away from these jerks forever. beware!

    am I missing something? has it changed? i cant seem to see where it mentions the $500 gift card when i go to click through… it also states $295 ongoing yearly fee? I thought it was only like $99

    •  

      It didnt work for me at first, but now seems to be ok.

  •  

    Help!
    Are there anyvpurchases that will not incure the 1.5%+ credit card surchage?

  •  

    Would you like $500 cashback or 120K Qantas points (fee:$225)?

    •  

      Both please.
      Some people changed the $500 for a woolies gift card.
      If you choose between the 2 offers, then the $500 is better than the Qantas points. Qantas points net you $406 in WW GC (technically you get $631 but you also pay $225 fee). Note that this does not take into account that you can buy the WW GC for 4% off.

  •  

    Oh no I have to call them… doesn't sound good.
    edit called back and waited 17mins on hold, apparently they only talk if they call you… ah the joys of customer service.

    •  

      Update: got approved after having to supply more documents that my former credit cards are closed

  •  

    Let's see if they are approving my application.

    Wow, first time I've ever had a credit card denied… when I've held ANZ cards for the last 3 years moving between FF and Rewards. Just cancelled my FF and thought I'd pick this one up.

    Protip: I had no idea for this so I'm posting to let others know - workers compensation payments paid in place of wages from your workplace don't count as income for credit card applications. Even if said payment is as much as your normal income.

    I was injured at work just before Christmas and was assessed as being entitled to payments (from my work and their insurer!) to replace my wage whilst I'm on sick leave. This is not a wage according to ANZ and I was assessed as earning $0 and therefore denied.

    I know they don't have to give me a card but it stings a bit! Also seems pretty backwards when I have fortnightly income as usual, it's just tagged "compensation" on my paylsip instead of "wages".

    So FYI for anyone on injury leave - don't bother applying and messing with your credit rating!

    I closed my ANZ travel rewards adventure in August 2020. Will I be eligible for this?

    •  

      Ensure if applying for an offer, you don’t currently hold and haven’t opened or closed an ANZ Rewards Black, ANZ Rewards Platinum or an ANZ Rewards credit card in the last 12 months and meet all other offer eligibility criteria.

      •  

        If you look at ANZ's card offerings "ANZ Rewards" is actually the name of a card in itself, hence why it is unclear if the Travel Rewards card is excluded or not since it is not explicitly listed like the other 3.

        •  

          Yeah that's what I'm not sure of. Is Travel Rewards considered a separate card or does it come under the Rewards umbrella?

          • +2 votes

            @MassEffect: It is sometimes considered separate sometimes not which is what makes it confusing. It seems the OP of the previous deal for this card was able to get the bonuses with an ANZ travel rewards too https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/10083566/redir

            So may be worth trying

            • +1 vote

              @wangasm: Ok so I spoke with ANZ and asked if I'd be eligible because of my Travel Adventures card that I closed last August. They said I won't be, because the Travel Adventures card comes under the Rewards umbrella.
              Called the complaints team, whinged about their website not being clear as to what constitutes a Rewards card, and they said they were happy to credit me back the $95 annual fee plus $250 as a goodwill gesture without needing to meet the minimum spend requirement.
              A $500 gift card would've been nicer but I'll take what I can get.

      Their letter is a generic excuses, you won't be able to find out the exact reason.

    Sorry if this is a repeat somewhere, but I'm not seeing the conditions of claiming the $500 gift card.
    Once you spend $1500, do they inform you and you select the gift card or are you meant to select it during the application process (which I did not see).
    What am I missing here? Help!

    •  

      Good question.. I'm sure there are some guru's here that can answer this for us :)

    •  

      I'm also curious to the answer for this, just received the card today, no paperwork if it comes with a promo or not or if the annual fee is waived either.

      Eligible purchase means purchases which are eligible to earn Reward Points. Purchases which are not eligible to earn Reward Points are described in the ANZ Rewards - Rewards Program Terms and Conditions (PDF 102kB), for example interest charges, fees, cash advances, cash equivalent transactions, balance transfers and transactions for gambling or gaming purposes and reversed or refunded transactions will not count towards your qualifying eligible purchases.

      •  

        what about government charge? like water and ato? my last credit card company wont say yes to gov charges.

  •  

    You will not earn Rewards Points on interest charges, premiums paid for ANZ Credit Card Insurance (ANZ Credit Card Insurance not available for new customers from March 17th, 2018), government charges, bank fees, payments made to the Australian Taxation Office or other taxation payments or duties, card account adjustments resulting from disputed transactions or otherwise, balance transfers or cash advances (as defined in the ANZ Credit Cards Conditions of Use) or transactions which are identified to ANZ by the relevant merchant or any intermediary financial institution as falling into one of these categories. Bonus Reward Points will not be earned in the Bonus Points Mall on the purchase of gift cards, GST or delivery and shipping charges.

    will city council fee, water and agl electricity fee count as government charge?

    what about prepaid eftpos card and woolworths gift card?
