Wonder if any of you can offer advice.
Here's my scenario:
- I've been using Amex essential card for year. Have been earning 1 point per dollar spent.
- I have always enjoys the little perks such as Amex fashion week or November's Opal run (ie: get 50% refunded when I spend $50 or $20)
- I just started new work, and this new work is flying me between Sydney and Melbourne once a fortnight or once a month. Knowing this, I know I will be accumulating Qantas Frequent Flyer Points, and Qantas Status Credit quite quickly.
Now my question is: Should I move my Amex card to one that is Qantas Amex, where I will be earning Qantas points? Or should I stay with Amex points?
Amex points and all its perks I am familiar with. I even time my CityRail Opal top-ups accordingly.
But should I go full in with Qantas?
What are some of the perks of Qantas Frequent Flyer Points? Can I get credit to buy things with it? Or is it purely flights and seating upgrades only?
Or if any of you have a better suggestion, I am all ears.
Thanks in Advance :)
