I stumbled upon this in my CR app and couldn’t find it posted here, nor can I see an expiry date for the CR in the app. ANZ Cashrewards Max members are ineligible for this offer.
Also, $0 Annual Card Fee in the 1st year + 50,000 Bonus Points
so basically, even without the bonus points (which I think most of us might not be eligible considering the 18 month clause) you can pocket $140 in CR and cancel the card, sounds like a good deal to me. I hope I am not missing anything here.
