    A couple of questions from an AAdvantage newbie

    Yes but it was priced as two separate legs. It was also bookable online at that rate if doing multi trip.

    A couple of questions from an AAdvantage newbie

    Interestingly I found some AUS-HKG-USA flights on QF that were not showing in aa.com. I called and the operator could see them and then I also found them doing a multi trip. In both cases they calculate the points a 2 separate segments. Is this an AA routing rule that you cant fly South...

    A couple of questions from an AAdvantage newbie

    From experience it's fairly unusual for award seats to be available to one partner and not another so checking multiple sites can be useful. There are sometimes phantom seats showing as available which can't be booked which is frustrating.

    A couple of questions from an AAdvantage newbie

    I've also seen CX redemptions around that time available on QF but not AA. Quite frustrating as I have points I'd like to book with in advance of the rumoured devaluation.

    Strategy to obtain US Amex

    I use Google Voice but I think you have to be in the US to set it up.

    AAdvantage devaluation coming?

    I've got about 170k points which I'd love to redeem in J to New York in June next year but seats seem very scarce on aa.com.

    Amex Travel and Jetstar

    I'd noticed they were available at the start of the year. The lack of bundles makes it less practical unless you can call up?

    New Amex statement credits

    I think the one plus Netflix is the better deal. You can buy two of those packs if they have a other amex promo with google.

    New Amex statement credits

    Chromecast with Google TV is excellent and the Netflix bundle gives you voucher credit. I've got one and will be buying another.

    New Amex statement credits

    I didn't get it on Plat charge.

    New Amex statement credits

    I gather the Google Store credit must be fully subscribed. I can't see it on my Plat Charge card.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Has anyone had success more than once with threating to cancel? I got 150k recently over the AFR and my annual fee is almost due.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    I was asked why I took out the card and I said primarily for the bonus points (80k) but I didn't realise I wasn't eligible due to having a previous Amex less than 18 months before. Coincidentally the 150k is the current sign up bonus so maybe that was applied?

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    I threatened to cancel today based on the end of the AFR subscription. Was hoping for 30k points and was offered 150k! Average spend about $5k a month.

    AMEX Platinum Charge Benefits - Q&A

    I called up to threaten to cancel in order to get 30k points. I almost fell over when I was offered 150k. Of course I said yes!
