Every card can be cancelled online.

That is true. The experience can vary however. i.e Some cancel immediately, where others go in a queue and can take up to a week (hello ANZ....). Only an issue if you are trying to quickly prove your credit limit is lower as there is still the time it takes to report to the credit agency.

Far easier to than calling an operator, although if you were close to your annual fee and wanted to close, the operator may be the better option to avoid the hassle of the fee going through and then having to chase up to get it reversed as there is often a drama then.

this very weekend I cancelled my anz card via internet banking on Saturday, was closed on Sunday. checking today (Monday) it's already shown as closed on one of the credit report agencies.

super suprised how quick it was i guess they've streamlined the process.

So there's a birthday bonus? I never got mine! Are we supposed to?

BTW, I signed up once upon a time ago to the once-off offer with no extras upon renewing. What's the chance of asking nicely for something to keep me with them for the next 12 months?

bday bonus was 10% extra QANTAS points of your QANTAS points earn for the bday month (from memory)

Does that make sense?

and you're probably better off just signing up for another bonus points offer once the 12 month period is up. The incentives to stay were generally fairly small and I'm not sure they even offer incentives anymore?

Actually its 10% bonus of the entire spend for the last 12 months.
So in effect the earn rate is 0.825 points per dollar instead of 0.75, if you time your cancellation right.
