ANZ VISA has upped fees to a ridiculous level. Qantas has increased their multi-destination 30000pt. trip by adding 10 000 points per stopover...

No way am i paying $215 for me and my partner to have the Qantas ANZ Gold card.... I dont collect enough points to make that worthwhile!

Any suggestions? Diners, Westpac, Commonwealth, Citibank, National... American Express?

Qantas ANZ Visa - A clear rip off

I just could not believe when I heard about the fee increase. They even have a separate rewards fee for supplementary card where the supplementary cardholder does not get any points (the primary cardholders get them).

I was a fan of Qantas Telstra Visa as I was a heavy phone user. Land phone about $500 to $1000 a month (for which I used to get 3 points per dollar) and Telstra mobile phone about $100 to 200 (for which I got a whopping 4 or 5 points per dollar). Now Telstra gives only one bonus point. And most of the QANZ Visa bonus partners are now partners of Westpac Altitufde Visa. I have a gold Altitufde with a supplementary card totally free as I have an investment property loan with them. I will cancel my ANZ visa when it is up for renewal in June next year. I hope they gain some common sense by that time and bring down the fees. If not CANCEL!!

ANZ

What apparently was going on was corporates were paying their phone bills and racking up huge FF points which was perfectly normal. These card program really lose credibility to their users once they start to change the rewards guidelines and annual fees. The cost and time of changing cards and changing internet logons and direct debits & so on is all to hard for the consumer, and they take advantage of this. But once it starts to happen they take notice.
