    Westpac KrisFlyer Platinum Card - Should I stay or should I go...

    I have just changed my banking to Westpac and one of the first things I asked about was the Kriss card my personal banker told me it's been grandfathered for some years, and like me she wished she could get one, for the very reasons Cove mentioned. If I had it I'd hold it.

    Has anyone heard of or used The Mileage Club?

    I think that they are not moving points from one persons account to another, but have some connection to a company that offers points as rewards ie: I'm Coles and I buy points from an airline, then give them to me as a reward for purchasing an item. I do wonder if I ordered points using my Visa...

    Has anyone heard of or used The Mileage Club?

    I got to thinking about this and, I wonder if they are not some type of credit company, who buys points like the credit card companies do and then resells. I can not imagine they are selling stolen points. I'm still waiting to see if they hit my Kris account.
