I just got this email from Qantas (how did they know I had a CBA card?)
Hidden in the fine print below is this little money grasping exercise by QF and/or CBAFrom 1 April 2009, you will no longer be able to transfer points from Commonwealth Awards credit cards to Qantas Frequent Flyer as you do today.
If you hold a Commonwealth Awards card and you want to keep earning points:
• opt-in to Commonwealth Awards' new Qantas Frequent Flyer Direct* option. Then the points you earn on your everyday spending will be automatically added to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account, and
• transfer your Commonwealth Awards points to Qantas Frequent Flyer^.
The only flexibility is that you can opt in and out at will.* An annual fee of $10 will be charged to all Commonwealth Awards Members that opt-in.
