Agreed. If I was talking to a teller, low level manager, mid level manager, etc - I wouldn't bother posting it.
Nothing in the statement would suggest to me you aren't, though. It would come off as the sort of speculation one would do upon hearing that such a scheme exists and not expecting it to be the case. And even then seniority in terms of title isn't the point, high-level execs would plain and simple not care about this. This would entirely be the domain and concern of those who either answer to regulatory agencies or those who are managing the mechanics of a rewards arm (and approving the associated expenses).

It's all good. Just trying to spread some love in terms of a warning. Every member can obviously do what they wish.....

I was around when the ATO thread was heaving .... warnings won't really accepted then either.

Mrscove and I are enjoying a ride from London to Singapore and yes I went the Krug, the caviar and the icy vodka. I know all this could end sometime and Mrscove says she will just buy the tickets. She really knows how to hurt......

I know how you feel Cove. Mrs D happily informs me that we are $25k richer per annum, now that junior D is finally off the books and in gainful employment. We could just BUY the flights for cash.
How very dare she!! What would I do with my evenings then????

It is always good to get the vacuum cleaner out of your money supply. We are finished paying for niece and my youngest mini me.
I look back at this thread where there was a $10,000 a time limit.....that was time consuming.
The latest limits mean I can get so much more done in less than an hour for multiple entities.
Mrscove has more Kris Miles than anyone else in our family group so she is a keeper.

LOL, that's exactly what my husband said, I will just buy the tickets.

I gave a family member this months taxes to pay. Generosity works in many ways.

QF points have arrived nicely this month and no surcharge makes it even sweeter.

Brothers ex girlfriend now booked on SQ Saver business class to Paris and back. We are both full up on redemption nominees so lending some ATO works out ok to increase the redemption nominees.
She gets a Paris apartment and a country chateau for a month for no charge as a dog sitter reward.

Wow ex girlfriend! Cove I am also available for dog sitting and adding nominees if it will help a fellow AFFer! Just need to tell my family they’re off the list!

Well I hope the ex or brother also shells out the $2300 in fees it cost to buy the points from the ATO Point Shop.

Looking after nice ex girlfriends is a very good idea. My brother has more than one and he has been generous. Of course he pays.
He wouldn’t like paying two or three times that cost so I am a backstop with largish ATO bills he can pay.
Dog sitting can have travel rewards.
