    Qantas Ultimate Amex up to 120k points again [Ends 6 Nov 2019]

    Thanks everyone. I went against my better judgement and applied for the card - I think it was only 6 weeks ago I applied for the biz version. Uploaded income info and was approved the next day!

    Qantas Ultimate Amex up to 120k points again [Ends 6 Nov 2019]

    Just finished my exclusion period, but recently applied and got rejected for the Qantas Amex Business card. Any one have any advice on how long I should wait before applying for this personal card? Thanks

    Compensation for no IFE in J Syd to HNL

    It was 10K in total for both seats. I should have mentioned my wife and I were travelling with a 3 year old - if this was a day flight I would’ve totally lost it with Qantas, but being night it was bearable for a few hrs before sleeping. It was a 747, the only reason could get 3 J reward...

    Compensation for no IFE in J Syd to HNL

    Recently flew from Sydney to Honolulu on a J classic reward. Two of our seats had no IFE throughout the entire flight (it's a night flight). Cabin staff behaved well, but still very disappointed by the lack of any IFE! Cabin manager provided 10K points (for both seats) as 'compensation' during...

    Applied yesterday, sent in info and approved 90 mins later! A record for me, as well as being such a huge change to my last experience back in early Dec! I’m half expecting they made a mistake...

    Thanks - I haven't applied any westpac group cards for ages...I am out of my westpac waiting period but the current offer is $500 for 120k points - way too expensive for me.

    Card Promotions StGeorge Amplify Signature - 80,000 QFF bonus points for $0 fee

    I was rejected for this card back in December. Anyone know how long you need to wait before re-applying for this card? This is a great deal and would hate to have to pass on it!

    Award seat availability for Qantas Gold members

    Hey kamchatsky, Thanks for sharing. I’ve recently made gold for the first time and have found reward availability is generally better - certainly the ability to book earlier th silver/bronze is helpful! However, I have not been able to find any Qantas reward flights (any cabin) from HKG to SYD...

    St George Ampliy Signature card. 100,000 Amplify points. NO FEE!

    They asked two questions; 1) Have I paid my tax bill showing on my NOA: 'Yes'. 2) Was my investment prop. income included in my taxable income: 'Yes'. I would've though both of those were the expected answers???

    St George Ampliy Signature card. 100,000 Amplify points. NO FEE!

    Good to hear there’s hope for me next time. I was approved a year and a bit ago, but recently declined after being conditionally approved (not quite sure happened when they called considering my answers were consistent with the application).

    Hawaiian Reward seats

    I know this is a virgin thread, but if you have Qantas points, they recently announced they are flying their 747’s to HNL until end of August 2019. I recently booked 3 J seats on the 747’s, and there was a lot of availability as of ~20 Dec.

    Westpac Altitude/Qantas Platinum Visa/AMEX no annual fee up to 90k points

    Anyone having issues with being charged the annual fee $150 for the platinum card standalone? I applied for it back in June I thought under the no first year fee offer but was charged the fee... Can’t find the original offer details and I didn’t screenshot the offer so I’m not sure how I can...

    Qantas Premier Everyday Mastercard no exclusion period?

    No reason given when I called. They just gave a generic blurb. I do see they did a credit check even though i have a citi fee free for life card

    Westpac BusinessChoice Rewards Visa 100k bonus, $3k spend in 90 days, exp 28 Nov 2018

    They ask for a lot of info on the form itself. Two years worth of financials and balance sheet questions for the business. I haven’t had to send any documentation yet. Approved today but need to do something with ID or company documentation at the local branch. Curious about whether it results...
