ANZ credit cards rated five stars by CANSTAR

For release: 3 December 2012

ANZ credit cards rated five stars by CANSTAR

ANZ credit card products have received the highest number of five-star ratings of any major bank in the latest CANSTAR ratings for credit cards.

ANZ received seven five-star ratings across all credit card categories at the annual CANSTAR Credit Card Awards, which were announced on Saturday.

CANSTAR researched 63 credit cards offered by 12 lenders in their latest star ratings report. Each credit card was filtered through four common user profiles to determine the card’s suitability for each type of spender.

The awards are based on the pricing and features of credit card products offered by major banks in New Zealand. ANZ increased the number of five-star products from two to four.

“This result reaffirms ANZ as having New Zealand’s leading credit card product suite,” says Kerri Thompson, Managing Director Retail for ANZ Bank New Zealand.

“We have brought together the best products of ANZ and National Bank, and this is a fantastic endorsement of how strong our credit card range now is.

"We know our customers use their credit cards in different ways which is why we designed our product and pricing to cater for different needs.

“Products that earned five stars included our cashback product that is unique in the market, giving cash rewards directly on credit card spending.

“Our Airline credit cards, including the ANZ Airpoints Platinum, which is the fastest earning Airpoints Visa card in the market, were also recognised with a five-star rating.”
