Do these points also count towards the bonus points
I'll be able to confirm that .... depending on how long it takes for the 100,000 bonus to post. I blew the threshold on mrsamaroo's new card in the first transaction.... points including the current 1/$ bonus have already posted ..... just waiting on the 1st tranche of 100,000.

EDIT - oops the 1/$ offer is actually ANZ Black...

Nice! Thought it must have been targeted. Nothing for me. :(
The timing is pretty good as we're in the market to purchase # 1 son a car.... looks like he favours a Hilux with 1.2% cc fee .... at least the fee is tax deductible :p

The big Q - is 1.5 QFF better than .825 KF ?

edit - the 1/$ offer is actually ANZ Black.... they've also posted correctly LOL

Well, that's an interesting one - I'd usually say KF, but that's a BIG difference (80% more QF points) - if the routes you tend to go on have half-decent availability on QF J (for whatever numbers you travel with) and you have a stash of QF points, I'd be tempted to go with QF (of course, that could well be 'wishful thinking' re avail), as I suspect that the points difference offset fuel surcharge differences etc --- it's an availability vs value decision!

For longhauls you may be able to go QR on Qantas points.
Kris has availability.
We used 115,000 AA Miles and a similar number of Kris Miles to book SIL to London. QR was for first class and Kris was business class. I think I could have used QF points to go QR but the points and fees would have been significantly more than AA.

I ended up going with ANZ / QFF as the P1 team sorts out any availability issues. Also struck a decent money man at the dealership - no CC fee charged :D
