Re: Amex - 10,000 bonus points when puchasing HCF/MBF/NIB health insurance Ends 31/12

This offer must have only gone to certain members because I didn't receive it. :(

I did get an offer awhile back with 5000 points if I changed to Energy Australia for gas and electricity.

I took that up as I am trying to move as much of my regular stuff away from ANZ Visa now that they only give me half a point. I also do not use my ANZ issued Amex Card. Must be galling for them to see my monthly Amex debit and none of it going to them but I do not reward bad behaviour.

I will consider moving my Health Insurance from Medibank so I can use Amex.

Unfortunately I have no choice with water and council rates, stuck with paying them on Visa.

It's not a targeted offer. Its advertised on the HCF/MBF/NIB websites for anyone to switch funds

Any links? I can't see it obviously on those sites.

I suspect the snail-mail promotion cards were sent to members who had recently stopped having heir private health fund monthly payments charged to their Amex card when Meditbank Private stopped accepting Amex card for payments.

I have done a couple of quick quotes on the various websites, but haven't found anything comparable in price to my current Medibank monthly fee. Just wondering if anyone else has found a good rate for them and who it was with?

Health Insurance| Health Cover| MBF Health Fund

Try these supplied by Lovestotravel in the first posting. Just checked them and the offer is still available on the sites until December 31:)

No sign on the MBF website. My understanding is that this was an Amex driven promo rather than a health fund driven promo.

I suspect the snail-mail promotion cards were sent to members who had recently stopped having heir private health fund monthly payments charged to their Amex card when Meditbank Private stopped accepting Amex card for payments.

I think this is exactly what happened. Darn good proper targetted marketing I think.

The MBF one doesn't specify the bonus AMEX points though...i'd be interested to move to MBF if i'm sure i'll get the points. Switching health funds is rather laborious.

It is advertised on the NIB site but in the terms and conditions on the NIB site it says "Participation in the promotion is by invitation only." .

I believe it's AMEX who'll do the checking/crediting.

Tried all three until right before the commitment part and there is nothing to obviously link.

I'll call Amex and ask.

I can see it in HCF and NIB but I certainly don't see the promo in MBF.

Anyone can provide a definite link please?

As with MBF stop taking AMEX, I don't think so unless they want to lose most if not all AMEX payees.

The 10K will be paid to invited Amex card holders who elect to pay for a policy with an eligible Amex card. The 10K MR will be triggered upon the first transaction being made from 29th October until 31st December 2010.

The medibank saves department agent I was transferred to seemed very disappointed they were losing a 26 year member due to this "I was only two when you joined".:shock:

FWIW, I went with HCF, a similar cover was $2 per month more.

I'm already with HCF and paying my monthly policy with my Amex. Can I still get the bonus points?

Not according to the T&C's ...

Existing NIB/MBF/HCF customers are ineligible - aside from that it is unlikely for you to have received an invitation.

12-14 weeks are now up for me and no 10K MR bonus.

Has any received theirs?
