    ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure Card

    Realised I had a few screenshots of the destination maps saved locally from the last time I went to plan the free flight. Will include them here in case the visuals make it easier for some people (I know I certainly liked looking at the map, not just the destination list). Here's from Sydney...

    Answered Lower credit limit?

    It was 2 a long time ago, now it's 4 credit cards plus as many charge cards as you can qualify for. The number doesn't really matter as much as the total credit exposure across the cards (e.g. it makes little difference to AMEX from a lending perspective whether you have 4 cards, each with a...

    Answered Lower credit limit?

    Given you've already applied, it could be a good idea to just call AMEX, tell them you were declined, and outline that you're happy to sacrifice some of your existing line of credit to fund the new card, so that the amount of credit isn't increasing. When I applied for the Reserve a while back...

    ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure Card

    There's also the option of converting those points into Asia Miles or KrisFlyer miles, depending on your (future) travel plans. Just be mindful of the expiry rules in these programs, and also note the conversion rate isn't as generous as for Velocity (3:1 for Asia Miles/SQ, vs 2:1 with VFF - and...

    New [Amex] statement credits

    A bit of annoyance with the latest offer for Kogan: Kogan seems to have changed its credit card processor in the last week or so (as the merchant name still has Kogan in it, but it displays a little differently), and transactions through the new processor don't appear to be triggering the AMEX...

    ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure Card

    Always works for me, but I always use Chrome. I've tried other browsers with mixed success, but Chrome seems to work every time. Usually get the 'thanks for shopping' email within a few days, and the points into the account within a few months. Given Chrome is provided for 'free' by one of the...

    ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure Card

    The thing I've also liked about having an ANZ card is the Bonus Points Mall. Very similar to the Qantas Mall or Velocity eStore, but sometimes with a much higher earn rate when frequent flyer conversion is considered. There's no cap on Bonus Points Mall earn, and you don't even have to pay with...

    ANZ Rewards Travel Adventure Card

    Interestingly, my annual fee is due in mid-Nov, and I haven't used my flight (or asked for the lounge vouchers) this membership year. Seems like I'll be able to use the existing flight benefit as planned, and with my annual fee falling due in November (which is when the flight benefit gets...

    Qantas International CEO to leave

    They've read the announcement incorrectly. The CEO is on 65% of his normal pay (a 35% pay cut), and the other execs on 85% of their normal pay (a 15% pay cut), all until November.

    Shop Small June – August 2020

    You can check what the offer was via the Amex full website - if you click on the -$5 transaction, the box expands and it'll say why at the top right (eg "Shop Small Offer").

    Double Amex MR points until 20 July 2020

    Yeah, that's a good point about the minimum transfer threshold to get the best bonus. I don't often convert mine to QFF (much more useful to me in programs like KrisFlyer), but I now tend to transfer enough points to QFF every year to get across the line for Points Club membership, the main...

    Double Amex MR points until 20 July 2020

    You realise that even if you wanted Qantas Points, you'd earn more if you used the Platinum card on your purchases but then waited for a transfer bonus to QFF? For instance, Plat Charge normally earns 2.25 MR points per $1, which after a 2:1 conversion is 1.125 Qantas points. Ultimate earns...

    Answered Anyone having Unusual delays in receiving MR points?

    The system seems to have caught up today... maybe something to do with the new financial year, but in any case, I appear to have all the points that were missing since early July.

    Shop Small June – August 2020

    Noticed that a few hadn't tracked (all from the first week of Shop Small). Raised via online chat last week and the credits arrived today, so at least they fix it when you complain. Seems that all newer transactions are fine - always seem to get the email now and the credit a few days later, but...

    Answered Anyone having Unusual delays in receiving MR points?

    Yeah, haven't received any MR points since about July 1. Before that there was also a delay of around a week for some transactions to have points processed, but they came through eventually. I'm sure the points will come through soon...

    New [Amex] statement credits

    If you're expecting a credit from AMEX, make sure you monitor it carefully. I recently signed up for the $400 supermarket offer, and even though the T&Cs suggest credits are available at both Coles and Woolworths, I've only been getting credits from my local Coles. (I'll still get to $400...

    Qatar Airways status match to Virgin Australia

    Maybe if Qantas actually paid Qatar for travellers to be able to earn Qpoints and Qmiles on domestic flights, travellers wouldn't need to hop between two programs just to get both points and perks from each flight, as people rightly expect.

    Shop Small June – August 2020

    To update, received my first $5 credit today, from a transaction on Friday. Transactions from earlier in the week still haven't credited, so it seems there's no particular 'X day' delay... they show up when they feel like showing up!

    Same here - no credits yet, even from purchases made on the first day of Shop Small. Will be keeping an eye out...
