    KrisFlyer 15% Transfer Bonus!

    I got a reply saying the three year expiry would stay, no surprise there. Also said that I can pay to extend the validity of my miles.:(

    KrisFlyer 15% Transfer Bonus!

    I think the three year expiry should be scrapped altogether so I'll make that suggestion in my complaint (better that the complaints vary in detail lest they think we are running a campaign). I'll also note that Asia Miles and Delta SkyMiles have scrapped their hard expiry.

    The reduced minimum drawdown is for both the 19-20 and 20-21 financial years. So the answer to your question is June 2021 (assuming that you make the yearly minimum).

    Lord Howe Island - October 2020

    Thanks for the Trip Report @Keith009; most informative. Did you do anything about travel insurance? I realise that being part of NSW/Australia then you are covered by medicare, etc. but not sure whether a medical evacuation would be covered and a cancelled flight due to bad weather could prove...

    I guess it all depends on whether you include the $50,000 as part of the "cost". 1603185150 https://creditrewards.com.au/

    RewardPay Alternatives

    Is this an "activity" that can extend the 18 months expiry date of QFF points?

    Agreed, although you need to be in Australia to download the App; after that it's all systems go. At least that was the way it was last year when I was last out of the country :(. +1 tried to download it while we were in Europe and it wasn't available.

    Accor's Response to COVID-19 Issues?

    In relation to points expiry, as I'm sure most of you know, points expire after 12 months of no hotel stays. According to the T&Cs, staying at a hotel is the only way to extend the points expiry. However, according to Award Wallet (Do ALL - Accor Live Limitless Points Expire?): "Although the...
