    AMEX Westpac Altitude programme ends 24 Feb 2021

    Can anyone help me with the contact number to transfer points out of my previous Altitude Amex account? Got the letters a while ago and have received my new Elevate Platinum Amex card but in the middle of renos so can't find the letter(s). Think there was a cut-off date for on-line transferring...

    ANZ frequent flyer black card

    No, I did not supply my 2018 NOA as my 2018 return hasn't been submitted however I spoke to a credit card application staff member and then their supervisor. I was advised that the need for the 2018 return and NOA could be avoided by authorising the ANZ bank staff to contact my accountant...

    ANZ frequent flyer black card

    Applied for this card as it offered 120k QFF points and a heap of status credits. I'm self employed so they initially required the latest tax return but as this hasn't been finalised yet, I put the ANZ bank people in touch with my accountant (much longer story here cut short!). Heard soon...

    Westpac Altitude Black for paid quarterly BAS

    Hi I'm sorry if this topic has been covered a million times elsewhere, the only references I came across were quite old and so might not be up-to-date. I have recently changed by CBA platinum cards to Westpac Altitude Black for two reasons. Firstly I hit a points cap on the CBA card and secondly...

    A leap into the unknown.. China Southern MEL-CAN

    Here we go with my review of the A380 flight out of Sydney on CSA. A lot less complimentary than Hummel's glowing endorsement. I booked CSA from Sydney to Delhi via Guang Zhou in business class for two reasons. Firstly I needed to be back for a work commitment on a Monday afternoon and the...
