Singapore Airlines and ANZ have a small promotion for travel to Perth offering 250 Bonus Reward Points/Travel$ for every $600 spent until the 20th May. Promotional fares are also being offered starting at $658, and the first 100 ANZ cardholders to take advantage will get a free bottle of wine.
The 250 Bonus Reward/Travel$ (per $600) are awarded on any of the cards below in addition to their usual benefits:
|ANZ Credit Card Type||Bonus Rewards Points awarded|

The Sign-Up is Complicated for the 250 bonus Rewards Points/Travel$!
These are the steps you need to do to grab the bonus points:
- Book your promotional fare through Singapore Airlines: singaporeair.com/perth
- Send an SMS in the required format below:

16‑digit ANZ Credit Card number to 77288
E.g. SQ $1200 3V4RWV 5289132812345678
Personally I don’t they could have made this offer more annoying!
Conclusions – Would the 250 Bonus Rewards Points/Travel$ be Worth it?
Well the answer is not much really, when I reviewed the ANZ Travel Signature Credit Card the points are worth a minimum 1.8 cents per Travel$ (taking the $50 travel credit) which would make is bonus a poor $4.5 (see the card post for details). If you are transferring a larger amounts of Travel$ then you could maybe squeeze $5 out of this offer if you transfer to KrisFlyer – but I wouldn’t be changing a buying decision for this.
I’ve previously reviewed the ANZ Travel Signature Credit Card and for the lounge benefits alone it is one that I would recommend especially if you are flying budget frequently. You can find my review here or alternatively check out the card itself: ANZ Travel Signature Credit Card
