    Hi Mate,

    its a referral link. hence trying to upload an image with the link to the ozbargain provided referral generator.

    Any suggestion on how it can be done.

      This doesn't come with statement credit.

    •  

      it isn't

  •  

    Basically only certain members get the 175k, instead of 60k standard. You can't link directly to those as People must use the generator.

      And from what it looks like… not many Ozbargainers or Ozbargainers in the referral pool with the offer. I've opened at least 100 and not found one yet.

        I must be one of the ones with the 175k then.

        edit: 304 (number of referrals in the system) is an insane amount of clicks to get through to stumble on the targeted offer (even half of that is a bit much). There must be a better way to do this (not that I know what / how to do it)?

          Same - I didn't know of a better way to do it. I stumbled on one not long after I posted but I had easily opened 120+ by then.
          I was clicking the link 5-7 times and then just closing the pages when I knew it wasn't a high points one then repeating.

            @ironik: for those trying this the 175k offer has a yellow special offer heading thing.

  •  

    I can see the 175000 points but can't see the $395 where is this found.

    I want to make sure I get the $395 before signing up.

    •  

      There's no statement credits to this offer. The only $395 involved is the $395 AF.

    •  

      yeah, doesn't mention statement credit anywhere….

  •  

    @jklaro - sorry my bad actually, the post should read travel credit instead of statement credit, which can be put towards offsetting the first year $395 annual fee.

  •  

    why is the referral linking to Business Explorer rather than normal Explorer card as per the deal?

    •  

      sorry, my browser wasn't loading the show more button. Can see the other cards now. All good!

    Travel credit offsets annual fee, does that mean if I dont want travel credit then I can put that towards annual fee so thay I dont have to fork out cash for the fee?
