Just got this via email - it was targeted:

Dear mick,
Transfer your credit or charge card reward points[SUP]~[/SUP] to Qantas Points between 19 and 30 November 2014, and you could receive a bonus of up to 20% more Qantas Points[SUP]*[/SUP]. The more reward points you transfer, the more Qantas Points you'll earn:


15% more points[SUP]*[/SUP] when you redeem up to and including 300,000 Qantas Points

20% more points* when you redeem more than 300,000 Qantas Points.
Visit the points transfer page of your credit card provider's website, or phone the number on the back of your card to request a transfer of your credit or charge card rewards points to Qantas Points.

Not sure if I'm gonna bite to transfer my Citi or Amex points...

If you have points sitting in one of the three credit card options which still allow you to transfer to QF without being a 'forced earn' card, I would have thought it would be much better value transferring to the other airline options you have, even with a bonus percentage.

My bolding and slightly OT, but can you confirm the three please? Citi Select (now Prestige), Amex ???? and ??????

TIA.

i got this as well, consider it to be spam really - they should just email via the banks

also they could match the bonus offer on direct earn like VA did

Agreed. The principle of direct earn cards annoy me, although QFF is my only programme so my objection to the principle is largely irrelevant.

Amex Platinum is the second, and third is not really an option for most, but Amex Corporate cards offer a Membership Rewards Spirit option, which limits your airline transfers to Qantas, while still leaving you with the hotel program transfer options.

I had this for a while but changed to Ascent (which gives you 9 airline transfer partners) when I realised how hosed I was getting on value for my spend with QFF.

Pleased to get this. Can transfer my points with a bonus before closing down the Amex Platinum.

How do you transfer Citi select/prestige to qff without direct credit?

Ooops, I thought Select/Prestige allowed warehousing and then sweeping to choice of programme including QFF and that the lower cards required the additional fee for QFF direct sweep. I could be wrong.

Received snail mail notification of this morning, in addition to the email several days ago. That's a dollar that could have gone towards the cost of an ADL J lounge...

Mr_Orange, check out the rewards tab on this link - https://www.citibank.com.au/aus/credit_cards/cards_prestige.htm

An additional annual $49 "Qantas Rewards fee" applies to lock you into monthly sweeps to QFF. That really is good value.

OK then. I was aware of the $49 for the Platinum and Signature cards. For some reason I thought it didn't apply to Select/Prestige. My bad!

I'm still unclear on the 3 non-direct sweep ....

This is sarcasm, right?

You pay more to Citi/QF for less flexibility and (generally accepted) poorer redemption rates and availability?

I knew I should have added a :p or :D at the end of that last statement. Paying extra to lock yourself in to probably the most profitable frequent flyer scheme out there while the "Simpler and Fairer Enhancement Team" continues their never ending quest to squeeze value out of your points makes no financial sense to me.

So I'm currently sitting on 450,000 points warehoused with Amex. Am I better off transferring them to Qantas and taking advantage of the 20% bonus, or transferring to AA via Starwood? I have no experience of redeeming with AA, only recently opened an account with them and have no points at present.

Depends how you plan to use the miles...
Even with slightly less AA miles than QF - AA is cheaper redemptions and lower taxes (by a long way).

The only real reason you might send to QFF is that you're Platinum and it could be handy for upgrades.
