ANZ or Westpac, that is the question.

I have just written to ANZ saying that I am a Westpac gold card holder and because Westpac have reduced their FF points, how long can they (ANZ) garantee they will keep their current 1:1 system up to $2500.

Similarly I have writen to Westpac asking them why I should not change to ANZ since they (ANZ) will give me 5000 points to change and their system is 1:1 up to $2500 unlike Westpac which will be 1: .5 from this month.

I don't like the Amex/Westpac idea as it makes me lool like an American overseas and many establishments will not accept them.

I will publish the replies on this board - if I receive any.

Nice ANZ lady rang me today and said , no they cannot garantee that they will not change their points policy. She said no bank would do this.

I heard that if Westpac values your relationship, they will give you double points and waive fees for you.
