  • Insurances. In addition its international travel insurance, this card comes with purchase protection insurance with security provided by ANZ Falcon.

The earn rate drops to 1 point per $1 spent above $5,000 per statement period with no cap on how many points you can earn. Note that balance transfers, cash advances, fees, and payments to the ATO are not eligible transactions for earning points.
