Is anyone going to confess to signing up to this card....

A couple of people in the office had massive existing credit limits with Citi and basically just split off a portion to get this card... one had previously done that to get the original Qantas card and then the Virgin High Flyer.

Thanks for the intel. Wasn’t sure of Citi would let you move limits between. Brands even though they’re the credit provider. Did they still do a credit check? Did they need to assess financials or just did a straight product transfer?

Far as I know they just reduced one credit limit by $15,000 and set up the new card with that.

Just logged in and found out this - makes them completely useless as a Platinum QFF :

Titanium – Benefit lounge invitation – these can be used at any Qantas International First Lounge when departing on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number. Invitations are not transferrable. View the Qantas Premier Titanium Credit Card Benefit terms and conditions.

Could still be useful to a WP if you need to guest in more than one extra person.

You would irradiate the the sales staff with the cards status.....

If the card was made from these elements, it certainly would be worth the money!
Not mentioning yourself! You could see it with your eyes closed trick.

I'd have thought that most people who earn a minimum of $200k a year would have the sort of job that would pay for their travel, probably in First or Business, so no benefit for the lounge access. The QF Wine Club membership is only $90 and all that gives you is free postage - anybody can buy the wine. If you have a pre-existing condition the travel insurance component is worth zilch.

The interest rates and fees charged are usurious although I suppose with an income of $200k or more you'd probably be in a position to pay it off each month.

This is a wanky "look at me" type of card like the Gold used to be before every bugger got one.

Maybe Mrs HockeyMonkey and I are just in the wrong sectors (University and Software respectively) but both of our current employers and all past employers have had a Y policy.

How common are J or F travel policies outside of the finance sector these days?

We're not in the finance sector, for us it depends on what level of employee you are. Our senior managers & execs fly J, all other employees generally Y (unless travelling with an exec).

My last three workplaces have all had staff in Y (one had PE for inter-continental flights), execs usually in J (C-suite probably got F but no need to mention that in the travel policy). Managers are variable, in the current one even they enjoy Y.

People on high salaries do go on holidays which are (almost always) not covered by work.
Depending on their disposable income, family size and award availability, they do find themselves in paid J or Y

Any thoughts/confirmation on if a sign up with an existing QANTAS PREMIER PLATINUM would still allow the bonus points? I'd take a 1 year hit if it comes with the points, else, expensive exercise...
