    Qantas First Class menus

    I always find it amusing (in a good way because I love doing it too) how in any other setting a $200+ bottle of champagne would be savoured with time taken to enjoy a glass or two over an evening yet when we find ourselves in an F cabin it’s a competition to guzzle it down as quickly as...

    New [Amex] statement credits

    Mrs NoName received this on the DJs AMEX. I missed out on my Platinun DJs Amex. Will come in handy as we need to service one of our cards soon anyway.

    Question Suggestion needed - another Amex Qantas Ultimate or Amex Qantas business rewards

    Absolutely no reason to get another AMEX if you won’t be eligible for a sign on bonus.

    Cathay to cut worldwide capacity by 30%

    No changes for us as yet for SIN-HKG-JFK for December. Hopefully that is well and truly far enough away for things to return to somewhat normal.

    AMEX Qantas Ultimate Card - 100,00 QFF points - $3,000 min spend - Expires April 22, 2020

    Agree, but I currently need Marriott points for a specific redemption so looking for AMEX MR to earn these. Otherwise I would 100% jump on this one. Have also applied for the ANZ QF Black card to massage the QFF balance.

    AMEX Qantas Ultimate Card - 100,00 QFF points - $3,000 min spend - Expires April 22, 2020

    I loved this card when I had it a couple of years ago so would definitely recommend it to people. Hanging out for a decent sign up offer on the Explorer though.

    100k Qantas Points with Qantas Amex Ultimate Card (ends 22 April 2020)

    Anything decent for the Explorer currently?

    Flybuys Targeted Bonus Promotions

    Spend $170 in one shop per week for 4 weeks = 20,000pts OR Spend $120 in one shop per week for 4 weeks = 10,000pts Activated it but unlikely to be achievable for us. EDIT: Mrs NoName got spend $100 in one or more shops each week for 4 weeks = 10,000pts. A maybe.

    ANZ QFF Black - 120k Bonus Points, $275 back after 4-months, $450 annual fee (DEC 2019)

    I cancelled the travel adventures card a few weeks ago and will apply for this one tonight. Nothing in the terms stopping points for both.

    JFK Transit times

    I am not an expert on it so I’m only assuming it is the same at all ports where they do this. We had the same thing when flying YYZ-JFK on DL a few years ago. They did everything in YYZ prior to departure. After doing US entry immigration we were held in a segregated area for only US flights...

    JFK Transit times

    If EY do the US entry immigration in AUH then surely 3hrs25min is plenty of time? It’s essentially a domestic to domestic transit with added luggage recheck.

    Amex Velocity Platinum or Amex Platinum

    Can the 99 sups all register for the statement credit promos? Would be a bit of fun around shop small time. :D

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    Declined as well. Quite perplexing really. Have never been denied by any credit provider previously, no negative events on file, low credit limits currently.

    Amex Velocity Platinum or Amex Platinum

    What is the process to get the companion Platinum Reserve Card? Is it something that requires a formal application with another credit check etc or is it a formality like applying for a supplementary Card where basically nothing is required?

    This is not my experience. When taking out a Caltex StarCard twice previously there was a small drop in score as a result. Not that score itself seems to make much difference. The credit limit also showed up under the commercial section of the file.

    Qantas New Partner - BP

    I had the alert come through on my equifax file today so you can safely assume they will do a check here. The check itself doesn’t bother me but I was not impressed when I saw the amount recorded was $30,000. The estimated fuel spend I gave in the application was $100 per week so not sure why...

    Amex Plat Charge - Up to 150k points via The High Life (ends 11 Feb!)

    Considering applying for this as the benefits will be useful with some travel we have later in the year. Currently hold the DJs Platinum card, can anyone confirm recent experience that this is NOT considered an AMEX issued card for sign up bonus purposes as has previously been the case? Also...

    SQ Tips, Trips and Tales

    Do any of the brains trust know if this is correct: So I just rang up to add SIN-BNE to my above itinerary after a 2 day stopover in SIN and was told that it’s not possible/against the terms because LAX-SIN has already been ticketed. I mentioned that I had done similar previously and she went...

    Yes, believe I saw something to that effect during the application.
