    Need Help Deciding which Loyalty Program to Join...

    This is how I go about it. Means I’m not tied in to any particular chain, and can use the free credit however I like as well. Room upgrades, early/late check in/out don’t really matter to me, so I’d rather bank the free room credits for holidays with my wife and not be limited to where I can...

    Answered VA Status credits question

    That one. Your SC balance doesn't reset to 0, however the 400 SC needed to re-qualify for Gold will start, at 0, from the date you drop back to Gold in Dec 2019.

    How many Velocity points have you earned/spent?

    Earned: 1,951,603 Redeemed: 1,882,300 But currently checking daily for 2x J rewards from LAX which will add another 191,000 to the redeemed column. Not sure how that works as it’ll push my redeemed total to be more than my earn.

    Although having completed a booking a few weeks ago with the 9 point/$ promotion, so far I have received 0 points/$ :rolleyes:

    Velocity have messed up my Award Booking - HELP

    Simple name change isn’t an option? Or available as an Any Seat redemption? If so, I would be requesting Velocity to cover the excessive points difference.

    SQ refurbishing KrisFlyer Gold lounge in SIN

    Chances are the temporary lounge will even be a step up over the current KrisFlyer Gold lounge! Toilets in a lounge ... who would’ve thunk it?! :p

    50th anniversary of the moon landing

    I was well off being born, but my grandfather was working at the Carnarvon tracking station. Lots of NASA memorabilia in the family, most of which currently resides in the museum in Carnarvon.

    Answered Is finally attaining Platinum actually worth it?

    As stm1sydney says, you’ll get a soft fall back to SG. So if you’ve just hit WP this month, you have that until May-2020, then drop back to SG until May-2021, even if you don’t take another flight at all.

    Citibank Debit Card is Great.

    You’ve had trouble using the Citibank card in Japan? I was planning to use it when heading there in July, but should I have a backup plan?

    Border Force taking boarding passes

    Correct. This happened to me just yesterday. My BNE-PER flight was delayed, so the flight and boarding pass disappeared from the Qantas App. Luckily, I had already saved it to Apple wallet, where it will now stay locally on my device for eternity if I want it to.
