    Vaccine Rollout in Australia - personal accounts.

    Had my first jab (Pfizer) at Sydney Airport last Thursday. I had registered for group 2something, but was eligible as a household member of Quarantine/Border worker and when I clicked to make an appointment, the first date was less than a week out. Second appointment booked at the same time for...

    CC churning - equifax scores

    As an American expat, I don't get credit reporting here at all.... I had never heard of Credit Simple, but just checked and my score with them is "good", while my Experian and Equifax are both excellent and says I am in the top 5% of age/state/post code... I hadn't had any inquires since...

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    I expressed no desire to renew/retain (didn't say, what will you do to keep me). My opening line was "Im looking to cancel my card, I just saw the annual fee on my statement, and seeing as most of the features I use are international (shhh, not true), I'll be paying another annual fee before I...

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    If it helps someone crack the secret to better offers, I think Im ok with the level of information provided. Im pretty sure my PII is safe based on the info posted, and promise my passwords are nothing like Window1A or Plat1OrDie.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    For context: - I've had one form of Amex or another for 11 years. - Plat Charge since 2015 and in that time have had 4 retention offers and 1 year of a waived annual fee. Our current monthly spend sits around $6-$8K with a few months closer to $20K. So we are by no means a high value member. -...

    Tripit, Tripcase, Kayak..... which itinerary app?

    Thanks everyone for the advice and experiences. I wish Kayak and Tripcase better published what alerts they send. I never thought about claiming the TripitPro cost back though..... might push me in that direction.

    Tripit, Tripcase, Kayak..... which itinerary app?

    I've been searching, and don't see anything recent on this... I'm looking for an app that tracks all my bookings for a trip, and alerts me to aircraft/schedule changes, and other good features. I see tripcase and kayak are somewhat similar (I think?), but what does everyone else use? Tripcase...

    SQ not publishing flights SIN-SYD

    My post had nothing to do with 'availability', it had to do with ZERO flights posted, even to book normally, not as reward. Flight schedules are now being released as per normal.

    SQ not publishing flights SIN-SYD

    She gave you bad advice. All flights (SIN-SYD) were released today... I can see flights up to 7 April. Bad news is most SIN-SYD are already waitlisted. Lots of availability SIN-ADL though.

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    I just posted a thread similar to this. There are NO flights to purchase or redeem from 27 March to 31 March 2022. At least SIN-SYD.

    SQ not publishing flights SIN-SYD

    Any ideas why Singapore would stop publishing/releasing their schedule? SQ flights should be open 355 days out, so through 31 March 2022, but there are no flights from the 27th to the 31st of March to redeem miles or even purchase. The other day, the SQ call centre booked us LAX-SIN-SYD on the...

    First time cruiser, long term covid shut-in ;)

    Hi @MEL_Traveller Great to see your comments again! I've missed this site, but the lack of travel was just depressing, and I didn't even want to log in.... I thought so too, regarding refunds, etc. So if we are booking via points or credits on most flights, we will be able to cancel and...

    First time cruiser, long term covid shut-in ;)

    Thanks @tgh . We double checked, our deposit is FULLY refundable (refund, back to your card, not credit for future) until 25 Dec 2021. Our next/final payment is due then, and is fully cancelable until 48 hours before, for credit for 12 months...... So in that aspect, I am confident in the...

    First time cruiser, long term covid shut-in ;)

    Good evening everyone. After a long break from AFF, I decided to start cruising (pun intended) the forums to reignite my hopes for travelling. It has been just a couple of years shy of the date when we had to pack our bags midway through our Costa Rica holiday to return to Sydney before the...

    Anyone know what the 2016 "Unearthed" McLaren Vale Shiraz might be? They claim its $150 for $35. "Family run" winery.

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to COVID-19 (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    Some updated experiences: I had to call Delta, as they still refuse to provide a refund for a flight to Hawaii from LAX, only credit. I needed a "no refund letter" for travel insurance. Was told I have to write a letter to request the letter (A LETTER? Via post, to the US?!?!?). Also need to...

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Thats encouraging. I have about $15K on a claim I submitted, for curtailment flights, non-refunded flights, accomodation that wasnt refunded for leaving early, etc.
