Charge cards aren't affected by th newe legislation regarding Credit Cards hence no change to the cancellation process
And yet I've still had no luck.. But yes confirmed was told no need to cancel because it's a charge card.

I hold a Plat Charge and an Explorer. Explorer was coming up for renewal. I tried the various lines that have been posted here, tip toeing around to carefully avoid saying cancel or retain. "Coming up to the renewal date, and deciding whether the card provides me with any benefit". "Are there any offers or options that might be available for me?". "Could you waive the annual fee?". Nil, just got a straight up "we can't incentivise you to stay, as of this year due to the law changes" blah blah. So I cancelled the card.
