2FA _as implemented_ using SMS is a silly idea, yeah. If the app on your phone generated the token instead (or, better, a standard one like...

If it's on a card you've used before it's normally quick. If not, I find it takes longer (and one time they called me up to verify).

@danyool, agreed, it would be so much easier if the WW app (or Android Pay, which does work for the WW rewards card barcode) could be...

Ha, Surfers Paradise (non-residence) is currently offering 30% off... so if you use this deal you end up with worse prices.
02/06/2017 - 23:39
Where did you find your better prices? The Surfer's Paradise Hilton has shot up in the last few days and I can't book B&B with this...

If the booking.com rate is that good you'd do better to use Hilton's price beat instead, 25% off that.

@Turd, what's the amex deal? Can't see it mentioned.
31/05/2017 - 08:21
Odd that CotD seems to be the only ones selling it... Anyhow, no club catch membership and can't be bothered creating a new account for...

21A6F-EA9FD-885D7-C91E3 also; turns out I've already got this but have yet to play it...

Won't let me use it (not eligible) but I've never used it (nor have I been sent it, I guess). I did use the 15% off + free delivery on...

Or ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures - no overseas transaction fees + rewards points.

I found it the most interesting site that I saw in China, travelling through from Pakistan in the west and down and around to Laos in the...

[@Lysander](/comment/4498826/redir): I agree your point, but just to call out out on the state, the divorce rate is actually falling (and...

[@MJ101](/comment/4499710/redir): End of month thing is only partially true; if they've already hit their targets they won't give a shit...

[@sp00ker](/comment/4498574/redir): This is my problem.

I gave them a bullshit number that will not answer at all. Surprised if I don't still get the points (but it's 150 x 3, so who cares).
20/02/2017 - 15:42
0000000000 is accepted as a number; there's no obligation to put in a real one.

Confirmed that my LOVE20 worked for me. I actually bought one in store for $159 the other day (they dropped the price to match Big W's...

They haven't replied... but when I look up the tracking code again, they _are_ now sending it back from the USA to Australia. Odd that they...
28/11/2016 - 10:07
Bought one. They shipped it to somewhere in the USA. Submitted a support ticket a week back, haven't heard back from them.

@mooney, why are the MJs always excluded? Last pair snapped in half after a few years, looking for a replacement, but damn they're pricey...
10/11/2016 - 14:15
Arghhh, always excluding Maui Jim. Looking to replace a pair of mine that broke, but can't bring myself to pay full price.
10/11/2016 - 14:12
[@GeeZed](/comment/4099125/redir): That's very true; I wouldn't be willing to pay $700 for it, but I _would_ be willing to pay more than...

Or for booking more expensive flights; business class MEL <-> SYD is 15,500 velocity points + 20ish taxes but retails for around 700ish....

Good to know; I'd be interested to hear from some current card holders on this. My Amex (Velocity Platinum) rate seems fine, but it does...

> ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures AMEX for overseas or domestic purchases = 1 Velocity Point per $1 (Same as you get on the AMEX Platinum...

I have seen elsewhere that their currency conversion rates aren't good though, which would be a shame if it's the case (really that's just...
07/10/2016 - 23:55
No. Commsec do, but you need to have the funds in place already for Nabtrade.
07/10/2016 - 23:46
Thanks; yes, I guess the rates might still be discounted, it's just that the top prices are always paid at the hotel and the prepaid ones...
03/10/2016 - 10:54
Any chance that you could prepay on another card, then get them to refund an pay again on check out?
