  1. Eligible purchases do not include cash advances, balance transfers, the purchase of cash substitutes (such as travellers’ cheques), gambling transactions and business related expenditure. 
  2. A year is based on either the 12 month period from the date the card was issued, or if it was issued prior to 1 April 2015, then from 1 April each year.

ANZ EFTPOS card, ANZ Visa Debit card and ANZ Credit Card currency conversion charge

Effective 10 July 2019, the currency conversion charge will reduce from 2.5% to 1.8% for foreign currency transactions (both online and overseas) made with an ANZ EFTPOS card, ANZ Visa Debit card or ANZ credit card.

We’ve updated our ANZ Fees and Charges brochure and the relevant ANZ credit card terms and conditions to reflect this fee reduction. Updated copies will be available on our Rates, Fees and Agreements page or from any ANZ branch from 10 July 2019.
