    Hi all, As the title asks... I'm just wondering if the current offer on the Qantas Premier Platinum credit card is a historically good deal (100k points for $199 annual fee). Or, has it been higher before/cheaper annual fee? Thanks

    Cancelled my Classic Rewards Flight but No Voucher Option Offered?

    Hi all, I was due to fly to USA this Thursday, but we've decided to postpone our trip. We had a flight booking with Qantas from Sydney to San Francisco. It was a Classic Rewards flight. As per Qantas' announcement, they're meant to be offering vouchers. However, when I cancelled my booking...

    Amex Membership Points to Velocity or Singapore Airlines? I have plenty of Qantas Points.

    But aren't Asia Miles difficult to obtain? The transfer from American Express to Asia Miles would only give me 20k points. I then want to cancel the card. How would I obtain more? I don't believe there are any Asia Miles point-earning cards, are there? Also I just had a look at the Asia Miles...

    Qantas Health Insurance 100k points - how?

    HI all, I'm a little confused by the 100k bonus points if you switch to Qantas Health Insurance. What are the main requirements? I had a look through various disclaimers and came across the below link which states 100k "sign on" points will be awarded for various premiums per month...

    Currently a member of Qantas with 1mil points. Should I also become a Virgin member? Or a Starworld Alliance member?

    HI all, As the title states - I'm currently a Qantas member with 1mil points. I fly once or twice a year to an international destination and am happy to fly economy. I presume I can fly any Oneworld airlines with Qantas points, in addition to individual partnerships such as Emirates. Would it...

    Thanks for your reply. Is another option for Dad to transfer points into his Krisflyer account, but then purchase my flight with his points? Can you use points to purchase another person's flight? Thanks

    How do I see if a points flight is available? Transferring from Amex

    Hello. Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately I don't understand many of the acronyms you mentioned. I've only just joined KrisFlyer, so am the lowest tier. What is "flight option in Y"? And what is advantage level? I'd prefer to buy a flight for the cheapest amount of points...

    How do I see if a points flight is available? Transferring from Amex

    Hello. Thanks for your reply. The thing is, I don't even see an option on Singapore Airlines website to search for point flights. I'm also logged into my KrisFlyer account.

    Mum spoke to Travel Agent. Said she can book Syd to London Return Business for 280k points. How?!

    Thanks for the article, however I still have 2 questions: 1) Are "Qantas Oneworld Classic Reward Flights" the same as "Qantas Classic Reward Flights" which are booked on the Qantas website? (i.e. on the Qantas website booking selecting "Use Points Only") 2) If the answer to Question 1 is "No"...

    Mum spoke to Travel Agent. Said she can book Syd to London Return Business for 280k points. How?!

    I honestly can't find the class selection at all! I've searched everywhere. So, are the "Qantas Oneworld Classic Reward" flights that people are talking about simply the "Use Points Only" option when searching on the Qantas website? Clicking this then brings up the Qantas Classic Rewards...

    Mum spoke to Travel Agent. Said she can book Syd to London Return Business for 280k points. How?!

    Thanks for the reply and warning. My parents have used the exact same lady for the past ~20yrs (and probably 20+ trips!) so we do trust her. I'm now just at an age where I understand points etc, and had never heard of this 280k business return.

    Mum spoke to Travel Agent. Said she can book Syd to London Return Business for 280k points. How?!

    Qantas/Emirates preferably - although happy to fly with other airlines. So is "Qantas Oneworld Classic Reward" the same as the "Classic Reward" flights you can book through Qantas directly? I'm hoping to fly Sydney to London either on night of 26th September or morning of 27th September...

    Mum spoke to Travel Agent. Said she can book Syd to London Return Business for 280k points. How?!

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah I saw this calculator. So are these just Classic Reward Flights? Because on the Qantas website when I search Sydney to London, Using Points Only, it doesn't give me an option to select my travel class. Also 16th September only has Economy Classic Reward flights...

    ANZ Black: Do Woolworths Gift Cards count towards minimum spend?

    Hi all, I was approved for the ANZ Black (Qantas) card in mid-January 2019. I thought the minimum spend was $5,000, which I've reached. However, I've had a look online and it looks like the minimum spend is $7,500. As such, I need to urgently spend another $2,500 on my card. I'm currently...
