how come? If you have one leg in F, and then the rest in J, you have to pay the full 420k which sux, but you can virtually do a RTW trip and visit a heap fo countries
Agree with the rules, however the point of it is to book F for the long hauls, not J.
Depending on your routing, you can get an F segment for no extra points cost (more or less) compared to booking segments separately. This is before you consider domestic J connections. Great value if you know what to book, which is great value nonetheless.

Anyone experience delays in getting their bonus points once they made the spend criteria?

I sort of remember that they were very diligent about it when I previously held the card 3 yrs ago.

Looking at options, the no first year annual fee offer has been off the table for some time now.

They are either:
- Public site:
100k bonus QFF points and $200 credit when you spend $4k within 3 months of approval. Annual fee is $425.

"Offer available to new and approved applicants who apply for an ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card account. This is a limited time only offer which may be withdrawn or changed at any time without notice. Not available in conjunction with other offers, packages or promotions, or when transferring from an existing ANZ credit card. Not available where you currently hold an ANZ Frequent Flyer, ANZ Frequent Flyer Gold, ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum or ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card, or have closed, or qualified for bonus Qantas Points or a credit back on, any of those ANZ Frequent Flyer credit cards within the previous 12 months. Your application must be approved and you must activate the card and make $4,000 worth of eligible purchases within three months of approval to receive the bonus Qantas Points and to have the $200 credited to your account. Eligible purchase means purchases which are eligible to earn Points. Purchases which are not eligible to earn Points are described in the ANZ Frequent Flyer Reward Terms and Conditions (PDF 1.67MB), for example fees, cash, cash equivalent transactions, balance transfers, and transactions for gambling or gaming purposes will not earn Points. The bonus Qantas Points will be credited to your Qantas account,and the $200 will be credited to your credit card account within three months of the eligible spend criteria being met. The $200 credit will be applied to the purchases balance and does not constitute a payment under your contract with ANZ. If you transfer or cancel your new ANZ Frequent Flyer Black credit card account before the introductory bonus Qantas Points and $200 credit are processed to your account, you may become ineligible for this offer. If any repayments are overdue before the $200 and bonus Qantas Points are processed to your account, you will be ineligible for this offer until any overdue Minimum Monthly Repayment and amounts shown on your statement as being immediately payable have been paid. ANZ will not be liable for any loss or damage whatsoever resulting from a delay in the process of receiving and/or approving an application or activating the card. "

- Internet banking offer:
75k bonus QFF points and $200 credit when you make one eligible purchase within 3 months of approval. Annual fee is $425.

Slight change to the terms (underlined) from what I gather. Don't know why they added the extra part, but my guess is that people might have opened a card, met the spend requirements, closed the card - bringing the 12 month anniversary forward, then campaigned successfully for the bonus points allowing them to apply sooner for the next card.

Has anyone applied recently?

I'm a month into the FF black - 100k points for net $225 fee ($425 less $200 rebate).

Minimum spend hit on first month, 7k QF points credited to account for spend, but no bonus yet. Hopefully over the next few months it hits.

When did you get the $200 rebate. By the time I got my card I only had 2 weeks to go in the statement period (not sure why they didn't give me a full month) and didn't hit the minimum spend but got hit with the $370+$55 fee on the last day of the statement period (19/8). I've now hit minimum spend with out bonus points or rebate, but assuming both should come at statement period time (mid Sep).

Haven't got it as yet either. Reading the T&C's I expect it will show up same time as the QF bonus.

I hit min spend partway through month 2. $200 credit received within a few days of making that spend. I'm a few days away from second statement arriving, so only got a few thousand points from first statement so far.

Further to this, I can now see under 'Reward Points' that my 100k has been earned this period. Fully expecting when statement hits in the new month.

This is the same experience I've had, although under "reward points" in internet banking, there is no sign of the bonus - just ordinary spend.
