    Just used the lounge before a Jetstar flight to Bali. I had selected Domestic Qantas Club for the digital pass allocation but presented it at international and it was accepted.

    The Explorer Credit Card (New AMEX Card!)

    I'm also earning 2 ppd on the Ascent program with this card (also have the Edge). Haven't spent the $1,500 yet so don't know if I'll get the bonus points but I'm thinking about calling Amex and informing them that the points are posting to the wrong program. Bit of a gamble as I'm obviously...

    Signature points now capped at $20K per "Statement", 1½ PP$ International

    Just noticed that the Citi Signature card points are capped at $20,000 per statement period and international spend is now 1.5 points per dollar. Has this always been the case? I wasn't aware of a cap and thought that international was 4 points (or something like that) per dollar.

    Travel Insurance via CBA Plat AMEX/Visa : is it sufficient?

    Is the increased insurance cover that's activated online (in Netbank) provided without anything being charged to the card? ie just having the card and activating the cover (for free) is all that's needed be covered?

    Reduction in Transfer Rates to Velocity/Krisflyer

    After the rate is changed back, who's expecting a clearly worded change to the T&C's to allow them to make unannounced changes in the future?

    Reduction in Transfer Rates to Velocity/Krisflyer

    Regarding the Citibank Facebook comment, I like how they called it a CONVERSION rate rather than a points redemption!
