    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    In the same situation as the most of you ... nothing offered. Worst of all they now say they don’t refund the annual fees “pro rata” even if you haven’t used the travel credit (on amex explorer).

    HSBC Visa Debit Card - (Citibank may be preferable)

    I have been trying mock transfers (loading other currencies) from AUD to USD and Yen (hsbc to hsbc acct) .... there is an approximately 3.2% cost hidden in the transfer rate. I withdrew yen from my AUD account in September 2018 and also noted a less than satisfactory exhange rate. This card is...

    New [Amex] statement credits

    I was looking at Canidae dog food whilst the code was working. When the code stopped working the price was down by 25%. I think that discount may only be for the blackfriday weekend then. Yup, I just checked the website ... the prices are back up.

    New [Amex] statement credits

    Pethouse has automatically applied the 25% discount to all its products. That’s why the code have stopped working.

    Reduced AMEX earn rates from April 2019

    Legal, medical, engineer and cpa/accountant are ones I am aware of. Probably dental ...

    Reduced AMEX earn rates from April 2019

    All the best. Hopefully you will find out about the approval online. The charge card is couriered from Singapore ... thus a very quick process. Might get it by Friday/Saturday if approved today! Edit: Don’t forget $250 less for the annual fee if you belong to a professional association

    Reduced AMEX earn rates from April 2019

    I don’t think anyone can give you the correct answer until someone actually takes the plunge. I have had the charge for about 3 months and received the “double points” letter, so maybe a possibility .... I also had the edge/explorer combo prior to charge ... all the points were automatically...

    Qantas Premier Credit Card

    Relatively painless this time around. Applied last Wednesday and managed to stuff up by attaching payslips and ID online under the same category. Multiple phone calls on Friday which I missed ... and thought here we go again! I answered the phone call this morning and all they wanted was to...

    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    Maybe ask your broker for a Vinomofo status challenge if there is such a thing ... I just received an email asking me to order 1 case to extend my VIM status by 3 months. I only bought 4 cases last 12 months. Apparently, they are “rolling out a new comprehensive loyalty program” soon.

    Qantas Premier Credit Card

    Can anyone kindly confirm if they have received the bonus points for this card within 12 months of cancelling the previous one please? Otherwise, I have to wait until June :eek: Thank you!

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Took me a while to take the plunge. If you have a professional association (accountant, engineer, legal etc) the fee is 1200. Get 450 travel credit with charge, and 400 credit with the free reserve plus a whole heap of perks. I am now off topic so won’t write about it anymore. Feel free to...

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    You get a free platinum reserve cc with the charge card - it has the exactly the same point earning rate and no points cap ... so that overcomes the plat charge point cap.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Just rang to cancel platinum edge .... Ave spend 300-500/mth on it. Got offered 50k to keep. Annual fee due in Dec. Wonder if its because I recently got the charge and not qualified for the bonus.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Genuinely tried to cancel Westpac Amex (QF) companion card after spending the minimum amount to obtain initial 20k bonus, was offered 5k to keep. Bought a plane ticket with the card then tried to cancel again, this time was offered 50k to keep. I didn’t ask for bonus pts when I rang to cancel...

    ANZ QFF Black 75,000 bonus with no annual fee 1st year -only $2500 spend 1st 3 months

    I applied for the black rewards, then black QF almost immediately after. They were reluctant to give me a second card initially and wanted me to close my first card. I told them I will close the first card after I receive my bonus points, so they kept my application open for 60 days. A week...
