Primary charge and Reserve Plat but not on QF Ultimate.

Saving 10% on $200 at VCs doesn't really even cover their extortionate pricing. Vaguely useful if you're buy GCs or something on sale but not sure it's worth the hassle.

Amex offers have become so poor these days.

It’s practically 10% off essential grocery shopping which is pretty good :) these kind of offers are true money savers as opposed to others that might seem as better value but often tempting up to buy stuff we don’t necessarily need.

Good point! It was remiss of me to not think of wine as essential grocery shopping :)

I got the VC offer, but the staff was quite rude when I tried to buy coles + myers gift cards using Amex cards last time, the staff loudly yells "no no no" as soon as I bring the gift cards to the counter and draw everyone's attention to us.

haha really, that sounds like a funny scenario, pity for you who coped this strange moment.

I mean the GC's are there in store to be bought.

Went to get some GC at VC, the store manager was there and said: I remember you, how many cards this time? 😂

Btw there’s a limit of 5 GCs per day now which may or may not be enforced.

Good thing there is only a banned drinkers registry...not a banned GC registry...

Red Energy - 300 / 100.

It says it is for joining Red Energy but I think it will work for existing customers. Head over here if you would like a referral to join Red Energy:

Didn't get Red Energy on any of my cards, and haven't been a customer of theirs before. 🤷‍♂️
