Frequent Flyer Fiend and The Game
Having moved on from buying air tickets I took the step of becoming a member of both SQ and QF points schemes.
Tools used this year are:
Woolies everyday card $89 for QF point per dollar on MasterCard.
Amex Ultimate $495 less free ticket PER-SYD-PER at 1.5 points a dollar on QF.
Westpac Platinum Kris Flyer at $195 with a point a dollar Visa until March15th and 1.5 points a dollar on Amex.
CitiSelect $749 for QF point per dollar.
Biggest issue has been getting high credit limits and the process of reloading the cards being used.
Next issue was on QF where to keep Silver status required 4 eligible JASA trips for each of our members of QF.
Paying large amounts on credit cards takes at least an hour a week but the results are very good for pointy end flights on points.
People still regularly ask why I bother and my view is that it is a game at the expense of our Banks so Game On.
And of course you get addicted to booking J and F tickets and just paying a few fees to redeem the points
