    Sounds like an expensive way to earn a very small amount of points. Pass.

      true - the signup 1000 OFF is not attractive. It is more useful when u think in term of earning reward points on your cc spend.
      Example: Amex Explorer 2points/ $ spend.
      Assuming a rent outgo of $3000/month which then makes the fees capped at 1.76%
      Annual Cost: $633.6 (transaction cost) + $60 a/c maintenance.
      AMEX MR points earned = 72,000
      Converted into Krisflyer or Asia Miles = 54,000 (1MR = 0.75 miles)
      Cost/mile = $1.3c/mile, which seems to be worth it for Kris, Asia, Velocity.

      Different cards will have different earn rates etc.

      Please correct me if I am wrong.

        Some payments over $500 by some card categories (e.g. premium cards) may attract an additional $10 transaction fee.

        So there's that.

    For rent of about 500pw, that's about $200 per year in fees for 1,000 QFFP (best case scenario)

    •  

      nope pay with credit card especially amex - that's 27000 points
      $370 fees
      some amex are more than 1:1

      Yep as I mentioned - this deal is more useful to earn regular reward/ FF/ points on your rental spends for people who currently pay using direct bank transfer, BPAY etc as this spend doesn't earn any miles or reward points and plus you get to earn 3% interest at ING (upto 55 days for some credit cards) by paying your rent via CC.

    Wouldn't AMEX charge this as a cash advance instead of a purchase meaning no cc points and hefty fees?

  •  

    Currently using deft.com.au with 1.5% fee for master & visa.

    1.1% + $2 + $10 doesn't seem like a deal for me but since my previous agency only supported bpay, this might be a good option in that case.

  •  

    So looking at the signup info, it appears that your particular agent needs to be listed as supporting this system?

      yeah you agent needs to be listed.

      Can anyone really be ahead paying the fees vs points?
      I seriously doubt it.

    What a joke! 2000 measly points

    This is not a good deal. For the average rent, transaction costs of $250 or $300 a year for 1k worth of Qantas points? You can sign up for credit cards with no annual fee and get 75,000 bonus points.

      That's missing the point…it's not the paltry bonus points that matter, it's the points your credit card company gives you on the payments that counts. If you had Woolworths Qantas for example, that'd be ~ 20k points for that $300. Not a no-brainer, but worth it for some.
