Seems the 4 months was a bit of a stretch… signup bonus appeared in the rewards account about 5 days after the statement was issued so 15% bonus it is. God knows why I need to call and speak to somebody even after submitting it online. Seems ANZ is just very backwards at all levels.

Which statement ? First or second ?

Notice a few people had issues in the application. From a different perspective, I skated through without any.

Applied Tuesday night, the please provide 3 months payslips email came about an hour later. Uploaded right then.

Didn't hear a thing, then today (Thursday) I received the congratulations text at 8:58 am.

Doesn’t that just say you don’t earn points… not the spend trigger?

Well you're led there by the first load of small print on the ANZ black page saying "$2,000 worth of eligible purchases within 3 months of approval to receive the 180,000 bonus Rewards Points. Eligible purchase means purchases which are eligible to earn Reward Points." it notes a few of the usual ones not eligible, then refers you to the pds.

So by that, if you don't earn points, they don't count toward the bonus i.e. ATO.

Is it a bit stupid they can't highlight it all in one place.

Thank you. I wonder if their systems are that smart to distinguish - I don’t care about not earning the points but the spend might help trigger it faster….

ANZ, a bit stupid. Sounds right :)
