    Just checking my referral code was up to date in the system and looks like there are higher targetted offers out there — mine says 175k for the referee and and 70k for referrer (this is for Explorer). Helpfully when you click through the referral link it tells you what offer it is so if anyone is in the market for an Explorer card probably worth clicking through a few times until you get a good one.

    Also if anyone has a referral in the system worth checking and updating your code — I clicked through the referral link a few times and most of the ones I hit were for a lower amount (60k for referee).

      Have the 175k for referee and 70k for referrer offer too. Also, needed to update my referral code as it appears to have changed.

      • Good tip - the referral codes for the Explorer have definitely changed recently. I've updated mine.

    • Thanks, now I know why mine has been clicked 8 times when it’s expiring, and there was no referral bonus!

  • When I click through the link it says only 100k points, and $4k minimum spend…

  • Anyone still has 175k referral deal? When is the deadline if its still available?

    • Just checked and mine's dropped back to 110k. It was definitely still at 175k a week or so ago so I suspect the offer has finished.

      • Let me know if it comes back :)

        • Scratch that — looks like the referral codes have changed again. The old one was still working but the new one is now for 150k (as per this deal: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/677505 ). Have updated mine in the referral system.
