    As you prefer visa or master, check out Westpac Altitude Visa or Citibank visa or master.

    I have the Woolworths Ezybanking Mastercard. Earns me 1 point per $1 and $1.25 for purchases at Woolworths affiliated shops. So if you do most of your grocery shopping here, it's well worth it.

    Consider the American Express Maximiser card. AU$12 a month (AU$144 a year) and you get 1.5 points for every AU$1 you spend.

    Also, if you do a lot of business travel and get to stay in some nice hotels or apartments, always ask about their frequent flyer program. Examples include the Marriott chain ( when you can get 5 QFF points for every US$1 spent or if you travel locally, the Medina chain gives you 5 QFF for every AU$1 spent.

    Personally I have the ANZ Telstra Gold Visa with that annoying AU$2,500 cap on it but I supplement this with my ANZ Diners card with no cap. I think the Diners is ok but will go with AmEx as soon as my application is approved.


    PS: There are a lot of different options around, just choose the best combination for you.
