    Amex Travel Credit - covid implication

    Sounds promising. I'll see how it goes. I never bother with travel insurance for domestic trips and I doubt anyone would cover Amex travel credits anyhow. (The flight was $1 less than my travel credit, so there is no cash component.) Result: Because it's Virgin, I get a travel credit and wait...

    Amex Travel Credit - covid implication

    The flight is not cancelled. It's within WA, which I can't enter in the first place. And it was paid with my travel credit, which would have originally expired by now, but would be extended to March if I'd not booking anything with it.

    Amex Travel Credit - covid implication

    I used my travel credit to book a flight that it will now be impossible to take. Does anyone have any experience with whether they are waiving any of the refund fees and such?

    Best Airbus A380 memories (so far)

    One of my favourite A380 experiences was also on Etihad F. I think the number of passengers outnumbered the staff in the F cabin by one. Food and service was excellent, along with lounges and chauffeur drive from AUH to Dubai. Still the best thing of all was being able to wander up and have a...

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    Wouldn't be a great idea in Vic. RACV says wholesale price is 100.85 today and the retail price trend is upwards. My BP was 101.9. Retail prices seldom go much below wholesale.

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    I received that too. And unlike the last one, it had a link to register for the offer. I dropped by BP and put a few litres in and the bonus was included in the pts earned total on the receipt!

    Flybuys Targeted Bonus Promotions

    Mine's 10k points for $70 a week for 4 weeks. Might be worth it, but I wish it was only $50.

    Experience with arriving back in OZ and hotel quarantine

    Also, it will depend a lot on the hotel management. I'm sure we've all seen how some hotels treat Priceline/Hotwire/etc guests differently to those who book direct, while others care about their reputation and give the same treatment to everyone.

    Flybuys Targeted Bonus Promotions

    2000 bonus points for spending $90. That's the worst offer I've ever had and I'm not sure I've ever spent $90 there at one time. Likewise. Though the number of points without bonuses is tiny, so it just depends what's on special.

    AMEX travel credit questions and reviews

    I used my Amex travel credit to book a VA flight for later this year. Any idea what happens if VA folds or cancels the route?

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    I received that too. However, the fine print said it was necessary to activate the offer. There was no activation link in the email or on the web site.

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    Brilliant. Their own T&Cs says nothing obvious about that, just "2.2.1 How do I join BP Rewards? There are 3 ways that you can register for BP Rewards:" Of those three options, the Qantas page makes itself look like the fastest, easiest way to create an account, without mentioning that it's a...

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    I received an email when I signed up saying "You’ve earned 100 Qantas Points". However, when I log in, the site says " 26/3/20 Join bonus 0 pts" What a mess.

    Multi-leg QFF Points & SC Calculator

    This is a great option, given that the new Qantas page itself doesn't work for me at all. (After putting in first city, it just shows dots forever on second city. It could be relevant that my ad-blocker is blocking 25% of the page's URLs, which is also a good reason not to use the page anyhow.)...

    VA removing FF numbers from boarding passes

    Then they could check ID and cross-check the name on the boarding pass. Having to carry your physical Velocity membership card is silly.

    VA removing FF numbers from boarding passes

    How annoying can Virgin get? Why do we need either their app or their card? I have over a dozen FF cards but I never carry any of them any more. They should just print the information necessary for lounge entry (e.g. your status level) on the boarding pass, like most other carriers do.

    Answered Is it worth joining a hotel loyalty program if not corporate funded?

    It really depends on what you like and how much you want to spend. My stays are mostly through hotels.com for independent hotels, Accor, Hilton, IHG and Marriott. Hilton gives the most consistent recognition of status with free breakfast and upgrades, but it also has the most expensive hotels...

    Flybuys Targeted Bonus Promotions

    I went and bought a few things at Coles on Wednesday. Received a $50 = 1000 points email today. There are also a number of item offers (grapes, bread, etc) for me online. (There were zero when I checked on Wed.)

    Woolworths Rewards Targeted offers

    About 4-5 weeks. (They are still sending the "this week's specials" email, so they haven't totally forgotten me.)

    Woolworths Rewards Targeted offers

    That's what I would have hoped and have experienced in the past. However, I was in a similar situation. Did the first week of a multi-week offer. Was overseas for the rest. Haven't had a single Woolies offer since I got back. (I don't count the offer for 300 bonus points for buying 12 wines from...
