    StayAngel shuts down

    Was never going to last or be accepted by hotels, anyone should have been able to see that. Allowing people to cancel a reservation and rebooking at a lower rate. Yes hotels will certainly love that and assist with building your business...........

    Bonus 1,000 velocity points via Auspost mailbox.

    I got all my family and friends to do this in the last few days of March and the accounts were only linked in the past week or so going off the emails received No points received on any account Very poor from Aus Post and Virgin, but given the incompetence of both companies I am not surprised.

    Use VA points for Etihad A380 apartment or SQ A380 suite.

    Didn't try that as I don't want to end up with only 1 seat booked, which then needs to be cancelled!

    Reduction in Transfer Rates to Velocity/Krisflyer

    I am sitting on about 300,000 points and just caught up on this thread. Will be calling CitiBank tomorrow and then raising a FOS case if they don't transfer points at the old rate. I have always been skeptical of CitiBank and this just takes the cake. I had started to enjoy the 1:1 on the...
