    I need to set a reminder to ensure I don't miss it this round !

    • +6 votes

      I set the reminder a year ago but forgot the reminder was to enroll, not to start spending.

      So I went on a spending spree only to later realize I hadn't even enrolled, and all enrollments were closed. I shopped at places I wouldn't have shopped at otherwise.

      Oops.

    Whats the best amex card deal going at the minute?

      Qantas Ultimate.

      The free one is better you can keep is forever.

      • +6 votes

        keep is forever = no new card bonus point offers

      •  

        Get the big bonus points then switch to its fee free little brother card after 11 months?

        •  

          Yes and then wait for a bonus points offer to upgrade again…..who knows how long it might be, if at all.

          • +2 votes

            @Poolprouk: But if you hold the fee free card, arent you ineligible for any future bonus points? I thought you need to not have held ANY Amex cards in the last 18 months?

            • +1 vote

              @aragornelessar: You’re right in that you’d be ineligible for any new customer deals. However you might get a targeted offer to upgrade your card to the ultimate.

              This happened to me this year, I downgraded from ultimate to the fee free card in Sep ‘18 and got an offer to upgrade to the ultimate again in March ‘19. Was offered Approx 50 K points with 3k spend.

              I don’t know if that’s a regular thing though as the offer coincided with the devaluation that took place earlier this year so I might just have gotten lucky.

      Couldn't make use of the vogue offer that's active now? I managed to get $600 worth of gift cards from Myer AND DJs for 40% off. Reckon that's a nice bit of saving there

      •  

        There’s no manual link, so have to go to city to register. Can’t be bother to get there as I live about 1 hour away.

        • +1 vote

          Fair enough, ya I wouldn't bother either if it was that far. I'm lucky enough that it was just a short walk for me to go and register all my cards so went last thursday to register and went again yesterday to buy giftcards after all the queues have disappeared

          Happy enough with my haul of giftcards, now to wait for a Lego sale so I can stack my discounted giftcards on top. Doesn't hurt with all the big expensive sets on the way. Lego hobby getting really expensive now, gotta try and shave costs where I can

          Don't forget that Legoland at chaddy is part of shop small, at least it was last year. Good way to get some savings on exclusives.

            @Kenb0: Is this for melb? Sydney rego opens tomorrow 4.30pm at kiosks I believe?

              @dammit: Umm…why would you need to register at kiosks? I thought that it's online as usual?

              • +3 votes

                @tukanglistrik: It was a targeted offer online and a lot of people never got the offer. I didn't get it on a single one of my cards, primary or supplementary. So for those who didn't get it, which seem to be a majority of people, have to go there manually to sign up at the kiosk

                •  

                  @Kenb0: Cool, didn't know that you can still signup if not targeted

                •  

                  @Kenb0: Is the kiosk there at lunch time, or just from 5 pm when officially starts? Is it just tap the card to register or is it stuffing around?

                  • +1 vote

                    @grasstown: I think in Melb it was there from early afternoon but not sure if it was actually active then, reports were inconclusive. It was definitely active from 4.30pm onwards(official start time) and there were also a couple of promoters with iPads who were guiding people and I think they also had a way to manually sign up through the iPad.

                    If I recall correctly, it was tap, wait a few seconds for it to register, then click on touchscreen "I agree" button and it was done for that card, Repeat for however many times you have cards.

                •  

                  @Kenb0: How do you find the kiosk

                  •  

                    @Bargainhunterz: It's in Pitt Street Mall. If you're not in Sydney tonight, you miss out.

      •  

        How did you manage that, I am new to Amex. Help figure

            @kerfuffle: Correct, as usual :) two Amex cards of which I'm primary cardholder for, and supplementary cards for my wife, mum, two brothers and mother in law.

      •  

        Looks like it's default to one postcode depending on where you're, Sydney, Melbourne, etc. e.g. 3000 for Melbourne. I'm sure there are businesses outside postcode 3000 that also participate.

        • +1 vote
          • You use 1 finger to move the map around (two to zoom in/out),
          • tap on Blue box down the bottom which says redo search in this area

          I wonder when they update it, I know one shop on there which ditched Amex back in April.

          •  

            @DisabledUser35983: That works, but clunky. Amex should've just provided a list of participating businesses for each state. Much easier to browse.

  •  

    I'm new to this offer and credit cards. How do I know if a store is Small Shop? Also, how do people top up Opal with Amex? Will that count as Cash-advance on AMEX? Thanks.

    •  

      Use the map on the AMEX website to find a store that's part of the shop small promotion. https://maps.americanexpress.com/en-AU/maps?cat=Shop-Small&i...

      Ask to load $20 onto your Opal card at the retailer, pay with AMEX, receive your $10 credit within 90 days. It should not be charged as a cash advance

    • +3 votes

      Be prepared for a $1 or $2 card surcharge fee by the convenience store operators. Which also will change on the day depending who serves you!!

          I realise no one actually answered your question directly. The answer is, yes, you can absolutely top up your Opal Card at Woolworths.

          •  

            @illumination: Thank you. My question was unrelated to whether Woolworths is a small business or not, I just never top up at Woolworths and didn't know.

            • +1 vote

              @Nick K: Ok but the responses above are to be expected in the context of this deal. There's no reason you'd be wanting to top up at Woolies when Shop Small is on! :)

    I hope they do not ruin it the way they ruined the Spend $50 Get $20 Back Vogue offer. Did not get it on any of my cards and could not attend the night in the city. $600 (3x$20x10 cards) gone.Last year had it on all my cards and used them all.

      You should contact Amex and ask why you didn't get the offer on your cards

        They just bluff you off with offer is based on your previous spending

        I did ask them if there was anything I could do. Was told there is no manual way for them to give me the offer. Just hope I can save some money on the shop small offer.

  •  

    It is hard to find the participating store even with the spreadsheet.

  •  

    Last year got some good beef from Queen Vic Market. None of them are participating this year

    •  

      I'd check closer to the event. If you zoom into VicMrkt there are some shops. Its harder finding shops that take amex there.

  •  

    can someone please explain this? so i spend $20 and get $10 in what kind of credits? money on the credit card?

    •  

      You will receive cashback money.. $10 per store (5 different stores max).. minimum $20 spend
