BNZ Advantage Visa Platinum Credit Card review

Spending on the BNZ Advantage Visa Platinum Credit Card gives you a choice between earning Fly Buys points, which has a range of redemption options, and earning Cash Rewards, which you can easily convert into cashback.

This card can offer complimentary travel insurance too, covering you for up to 3 months, as well as an extended warranty, purchase insurance and a price guarantee. You also get access to a concierge for assistance with travel and leisure bookings.

The card charges an annual account fee of $90, which is due in two equal instalments, but many people will find that the benefits outweigh the fee charged.
