    New [Amex] statement credits

    Yes, at the top of Platform 13. They are aware of the AMEX offer. They actually asked me how manay AMEXs I wanted to use (only had one on me). I went back when they were quiet and they were very happy to do split payments over mutliple cards. Could not have had a better expereinece topping...

    AMEX - Shop Small November 2019

    Only my two newest Supps were targeted. (Disappointing this year.) Dr R, I think you are just back onto the AMEX after the 18 month holiday, and sounds like all your Supps were targeted. I wonder if that's the critera AMEX used to target cards: newer Supps were targeted, older Supps weren't...

    Cashrewards have increased their discount to buy Woolies gift cards from the regular 5% to 5.5% - ends midnight tonight. NC

    Annual fee [waived when 'threatening' to cancel?]

    You had more luck than me. I called a number of times before my annual fee fell due recently, and the best I could get was 1000 bonus QF points. They would not waive the annual fee, or even part of it, which they have in previous years. I can still get some value out this card with a big...

    Yes, I experienced the same. For the first time the 10% discount was not applied to the cost of Only1 cards purchased. I used to buy them to get my total spend to $500, to make full use of the 10% discount which maxes out at $50. I seemed to be one of the last remaining fans of the Woolworths...

    This is not correct, at least not at all stores. I purchased some Only1s with the orange happy birthday cover this morning. Scanned at $100 each. I bought 10, and it took about 15 minutes to squirt out the activation receipts. Always had a fair delay in the past, but never this long...

    I imagine the ATO ceasing to accept Only1Visas as a valid method of payment had a very signaificant impact on the number of Only1Visas purchased. I can only imagine that Woolworths enhancing its system to prevent cards that have a purchase fee (like Only1Visas ($5.95) and Perfect Gift cards...

    ATO (tax office) payments by credit card

    I had a few stray Only1Visas and Perfect Gift Cards left over from the recent Woolies promotions. Both worked at the Auspost self-service machine I used to pay the ATO. The Only1Visas needed a signature to be verified by an Auspost employee, so oddly I also had to sign the back of the...

    Isn't the trick using the $100 V1 card to buy a Wish GC (via Cashrewards/EB etc at 5% off) ie buying a Wish GC with a value of $105.26, not a Wish GC with a value of $100? NC

    I may be a bit slow on the uptake here, Dr R. (FWIW I had to watch "Inception" twice before I got it.) Are you: 1. Buying the Wish card with your points earning credit card (I think you are Amex free, but one could earn 3 pts per $1 spent for, say, an Edge). Example: buying a $105.95 Wish...

    Any suggestions on making the redemption process more efficient would be gratefully accepted. I can scan and copy the bar code, and copy my email address (at least into the first box to insert email addresses), but that's it. I've just redeemed my first 10 and found the process both tedious...

    Annual fee [waived when 'threatening' to cancel?]

    Just got a fee waiver. Didnt push for the +2000 QFF points, due to scarring from my poor negegotiating skills in the past:Woolworths Qantas Credit Card Canceled letter. NC

    I have scored a few, but am yet to redeem. Won't be cashing them straight back in for more WISH cards - I have too may bills that can be paid with the Only1s :(. Why cash them back in - aren't the Only1s a more flexible payment option (ie accepted everywhere) than the Wish cards (ie only...

    If I recall, the Rebel promotion was used to clear Perfect card stock with the old $5.95 activation fee, to make way for the new (current) Perfect cards with the higher fee. Hopefully this wont be a repeat for the Visa Only1s. NC

    ATO (tax office) payments by credit card

    No, through the RBA's Government EasyPay for CS payments - which is pretty much identical to the RBA's Government EasyPay for ATO payments. See: Government EasyPay NC
