    Coles gift card offers

    Yeah, I'd read about people comprising the packaging a few months back, so when I did my big purchases in February and a few months later I used the cards as soon as I got home from the shopping trip.

    Very prompt refund from Singapore Airlines

    We'd booked SYD-CNS return for September 2021 in March 2021. The points were Krisflyer points that had been converted from Velocity points last year in March. The flights were on an Air New Zealand code share on Qantas metal. I thought it would be a nightmare to deal with if we weren't able to...

    Getting Both AZ & Pfizer

    I know in NSW that when getting either brand they ask you if you've already had a vaccine and will not let you proceed if you have. Are you sure they will let you get Pfizer since you are already fully vaccinated?

    I bought some for USD20 during the March 2nd to March 16 2020 cruise to NZ. Wish I'd bought more when they were under USD10.

    Loyalty list

    I know that none of the Carnival owned brands allow loyalty points to be credited from other Carnival owned brands. eg Cunard, Carnival, Holland America, P&O, AIDA, Costa. Each loyalty program is separate.
