    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    When I saw the headline, I could hear in the distance the collective groan coming from the AFF community. :D

    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    Rooms are small, tired... just some of the many reasons to look elsewhere in Sydney.

    Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Card Discontinued

    You are right. I checked my email it I did receive an email on the same day saying "Your Hilton Honors account has been updated" - I had booked a reward night stay two days before and I had assumed it was just a delayed notification that points had been deducted. Logging into the system to...

    Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Card Discontinued

    Has anyone received their free night reward certificate yet? They said it would be sent this month.

    Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Card Discontinued

    Was your card embossed? My card is not embossed with the credit card number. Not sure if its by design or part of that faulty batch. Will find out when I go to use it I guess...

    Macquarie Platinum Card with Qantas Points (40,000 QFF bonus points)

    Instant. After I pay with my card, a notification gets pushed to my phone.

    Veterans to receive Priority Boarding & "thank you for your service"

    Why is it not cringeworthy? If there was a call to give veterans priority boarding and thanks over the PA every time they boarded a train, a bus, a tram, a ferry would you call that cringeworthy? What about giving veterans priority to skip the queues for concerts and sporting events, surely...

    Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Card

    I've only had this card since late December. Stayed maybe 10 nights in total. Logged in the other day to Hilton to make a booking and somehow I have gone from Gold to Diamond? I definitely did NOT put anywhere near 40k on the card to get comp Diamond, nor have I met the usual hurdles with...

    Qantas priority boarding - crippled by Communists?

    QF could easily just copy VA's very effective PB system... no idea why they haven't after all these years. Next time some crappy staffer pulls this stunt, make a point to acknowledge their decision by name. e.g. If denied boarding in a non-priority boarding lane, I would suggest saying in a...

    The Explorer Credit Card (New AMEX Card!)

    Thanks for letting us know. I am not 100% reassured though. I think your "business accelerator" card is not your regular 'consumer credit card'. "Card Members who currently hold or who have previously held any other Consumer Credit Card product issued by American Express Australia Limited in...

    Multiple single night bookins cheaper?

    It's a bit of a lottery booking with Hilton. Sometimes, splitting your nights results in better rates. Sometimes keeping it as one booking is better. The irritating part, is having to go through a bunch of dummy bookings to see what works out best before you actually complete the transaction/s...
