Fee for credit cards has gone up/down to 1.76% (Inc GST) regardless of Credit Card used.2. In order to qualify for the 2,000 additional points you must register an eligible Australian dollar Qantas American Express Card with Rental Rewards between 3rd June 2008 and 3rd December 2008 to authorise Rental Rewards to process your rental payments. Please allow 8-10 weeks for additional points to appear in your account.
And that isn't even taking into account how you could invest that money over your cards interest free period to offset that fee! Think I will sign up now too.That 1.76% would be right on the cusp for making this worthwhile.
On a monthly rental of $1000, that's a $17.60 loading. Is that worth 1,000 MR points? (Or with a Rewards Maximiser 1,500?)
For most 1¢ per point value is about what can be attained. This can increase through judicious burning, also, the more points you have, the greater per point value can generally be attained.
(FWIW, This year I have burned over 120K MR points, attaining an overall notional value of around 2½¢ per point.)
Doesn't have to be a Qantas Amex card from my understanding? On the rental rewards site it just says 'Amex' and MR points...Amex are currently promoting this service. They'll give 2000 Qantas FF points (or 2000 MR points) if you sign up for the service with your Qantas Amex card.

Yeah, it's not particularly clear. Amex only seem to be promoting the offer for the Qantas cards, RentalRewards is promoting it as valid for MR cards.Doesn't have to be a Qantas Amex card from my understanding? On the rental rewards site it just says 'Amex' and MR points...
I agree its not clear. But if you forget the AMEX site and just look @ RR thenYeah, it's not particularly clear. Amex only seem to be promoting the offer for the Qantas cards, RentalRewards is promoting it as valid for MR cards.
Who knows!! (But I assume that any Amex card that's attached to the MR or Qantas scheme will get 2000 points)
Not blind , but you skipped over reading this part:I signed up, but I didn't see anywhere to give them my QFF number - am I just blind or was there no provision for it?
Whether it is worthwhile or not is up to the individual, their own circumstances and the way in which they utilise them (there are many different values being acheived and given as examples - even on this thread).Not sure if the 1.76% surcharge would be worthwhile for the FF points earned. Much better than a mileage run but accumulate more FF points or MR points that are getting harder to use....
I would disagree.Not sure if the 1.76% surcharge would be worthwhile for the FF points earned. Much better than a mileage run but accumulate more FF points or MR points that are getting harder to use....
With QF anyseat awards? No thanks. Or possibly you are referring to the recent enhancement of better conversion rates for Amex MR points to *Alliance carriers.And what do you mean getting harder to use the points? in general they are getting easier to use!
