total
50906​
FF points per $
1.125​
FF points earnt
57268.125​
cost of 1 FF pt
0.888888889​
Maybe I'm just daft ;), but it all looks correct, other than cost / pt - isn't it $906 / 57,268 points = 1.6 c (pre-business expense deduction)?

HI @daft009,

The 1.81% (no GST) * + $1 for each individual transaction is from their website. 1.81% on 50,000 = 905 (so that bit is correct).

The FF points earned will, of course, depend on which card you are using although it appears you don't get points on the $1 service fee. On my calculations the cost of 1 QFF point is 0.8890635

I get 1.58c/point on the Platinum Charge.
906/($50906 x 1.125) = 1.58c/point

Would you have a link for credit rewards? I can't seem to find them.

I guess it all depends on whether you include the $50,000 as part of the "cost".

safe to put it in the "can't avoid it" cost bucket

Bluechain or creditrewards, which one works out to better?

B.C if you need to EFT.
If Bpay CR is cheaper

I wish you were right though! Remind me - may be upthread - what is rate difference for BC on EFT vs CR on Bpay?

Hi - please would someone let me know the website for Credit Rewards as they seem to be best for Amex. Has anyone had any problems with them? I had been using B2BPay
