    Does anyone else have this? It came up on my Amex Qantas account, but can’t find the offer in the offers section though.

    Did you do anything about this in that end? I just got the same email and am wondering what to do.

    Yeah understood where you were going with the mpd rate. It’s just the article was referring to MR points to KF miles when they mentioned 3:2. So I didn’t realise you were talking about the mpd earn rate. You’ve got me, I’m confused haha. If the transfer rate from AU MR to KF is 3:2. Isn’t it...

    Ah, are you referring to $1 per mile when you say 1:1? Sorry I thought you meant 1 MR : 1 KF mile. Believe it currently is 2 MR to 1 KF mile for the AU MR program. I hope you’re wrong too! Not sure how I’d feel about another devaluation on my MR stash. :/ It’s $1 per mile for a number of cards...

    But the AU MR program hasn’t been 1:1 with airlines for a while now? Hasn’t it been 2:1 since April-19 or so? Or are you suggesting that because UK MR’s program is devaluing the MR there, that we will be seeing another round of devaluations here too? I sure hope not.

    That’s great news! Unfortunately my apartment’s owner corp goes through DEFT, so can’t use Sniip and Amex to make payments.

    Yeah fair enough. Sorry that’s wasn’t helpful. Assume you’ve looked at the other payment aggregators that work like Yakpay already (i.e. creditrewards, bluechain, b2bpay etc. per this link https://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/community/threads/rewardpay-alternatives.85954/)?

    Is Yakpay’s Amex surcharge 2.15%? Have you looked at Sniip? Amex surcharge is 1.5%. Don’t have a business so don’t know what you can or can’t pay with Sniip, but if it’s bills etc. that can be paid via bpay, Sniip seems to be able to do it. I’ve used it once with my Oz Amex, haven’t tried it...

    Cheers. I was actually looking at Canberra’s Midnight Hotel too, but for Easter. Just slightly more expensive at $136 a night. Still heaps cheap.

    Thanks for the tip DC3! I used PayID instead of the manual transfer and it got transferred pretty quickly, probably under a few minutes. Next step is to get the TW account added to my Amex account using your process too. I’ll update on how that goes. When you pay the balance using the Amex app...

    With regards to how people are paying off their statements with TW, have I got the process below right? 1. Create both USD and AUD balance TW accounts 2. Verify personal details to get account details 3. Transfer AUD into AUD account (fee-free if transferring from AUD bank account?) 4. Convert...

    Thanks, should have checked there first. But I swear you guys are more knowledgeable, hence my first port of call. Interestingly when trying to add my card to Apple Pay, the number verification didn’t work. Was fine as I could verify via email, but this was the first time TextNow didn’t work...

    Thanks mate, the last time I used a forwarding service, that didn’t happen. Granted it wasn’t via MyUS. Thought I’d check to make sure.

    Strategy to obtain US Amex

    Are you using iPlum for Amex as well or still using TextNow? Also, what’s the rationale behind waiting 24 months between your Brilliant and Boundless? Or is that more for the Chase requirements. Is it common for the Amex parcels to come opened from MyUS? I’ve just received my Brilliant Bonvoy...

    Cheers I’ll give them a call later to get my PP set up. Thanks for the DP, when you say cheapest option, is that the non-courier option (i.e. not FedEx or UPS)? If mine ends up being delivered Tuesday as scheduled, it’ll have been sitting for the better part of a week too! And via FedEx no...
