Even I have received a mail saying I will be receiving the replacement card in next couple of weeks. However I have a lot of direct debits that are currently in place , will they honor the existing direct debits.
Once we get the new card, we will have to inform the direct debit companies of our new card details, unfortunately.

I can't tell if there's already an answer to this query in a different thread but card terms say they will post sign-up bonus within 3 weeks of minimum spend - does anyone have any experience of whether accurate? Thanks

I've just closed the Qantas Premier Platinum, which I believe is a Citi card.

Does anyone know if that would exclude me from this card for 12-18 months?

It seems the 138,000 points transfer is enforced. Just tried to transfer for the bonus Velocity offer and got an error message.
Yes, me too. I ended up searching for "flybuys reward confirmation" in my email and working it out myself. Last year I managed to do a fair amount over the limit, would love another uncapped transfer offer.

I also got Citi to give me a small points apology for the ignominy of having to set up all of my direct debits again. It was tempting to just dump the card and get my partner to sign up for a replacement for the sign up bonus but they'd fairly recently refunded the annual fee for another mess up...

Not the easiest of applications to do. In addition to entering passport and license number in the application it required images of both those documents. The standard payslips was required but also ATO documents or Super Statements or letter of employers.

I just applied for this.

I'm self-employed and my accountant only has a mobile number, but the application form insists you add a landline number from the White Pages. So I had to make up a landline number lol

Those that have applied and got it, what was the general wait time from application to receiving the card?

I have some expenses that I'm holding off on that will easily take me over the required spend, but it won't work if I have to wait more than 2 weeks.

I am self-employed and do not use an accountant - stated this on the application and was approved. The application process was very disorganised but they got there in the end! Applied early Nov and approved mid Dec (I think currently away from home on holiday).

I reached out last week via secure message, after reaching the spend target, and they confirmed I had met the threshold and there would be a three-week wait. So far it's been about two weeks. I will update when/if I receive the bonus points.

And...I received the first 100k bonus Flybuys last night. (The remaining 20k are due after the next annual fee.)

This was 20 days (just on the 3 weeks I was advised were the terms) after the transaction which hit the spend threshold, and also within 24 hours of my statement (not the first, but the first after reaching the spend target) was issued.
