    I'm under the pump now to get 2 Amex Travel Credits booked in that expire in the 1st and 3rd weeks of October. Struggling to find good value and with lockdowns in place keep fiddling with where we could end up in NSW .. Amex has to extend the expiries again!

    Marriott new properties 2021.

    Thanks for sharing this mate; yes I just saw a quick write up in Travel Daily Thursday afternoon about the property.

    AMEX Platinum Charge Benefits - Q&A

    Thanks mate .. it appears I did not go through the entirety of the account set up process .. for some reason this allowed me to view all access via the Web (logged in with WSJ account) but not the apps .. this is now resolved as I redid the process again and it is now worked.

    Aus. Financial Review benefit gone. (Replaced with The Australian)

    I read / watch all slants ..and trust me some dodgy extreme stuff on both sides. I have committed to giving The Australian a shot and there is definitely some quality content on there ..I just didn’t expect to have to fish around for it ..the newspaper is further to the right than I thought...

    Aus. Financial Review benefit gone. (Replaced with The Australian)

    it is simply a fancy name for the papers business section .. the additional access you get is for Wall Street Journal. Go to your My Account to get the special code to activate that. You can see HBR here as a section but it is very limited...

    Yes it is annoying and No there is no way to cancel the booking unless you speak to an Amex agent Monday to Friday. Qantas cannot do anything.
