    qantas compensation

    it was 1000 each travel credit and 700 each cash both in USD. given that the economy tickets were 700 each through to Brisbane, and they also had to put us up for the night in Sydney and gave us 100 to spend at the bar, i think it was a great outcome for us

    St George Amplify Signature Card 60,000 Qantas/Amplify points - Annual fee $279

    i just had another look at my statement and it does appear i was credited for the ATO payment, the confusion for me was that St George does not credit 1 for 1 on points, so at first glance it looked like i was missing them, so i am now a bit happier.
