General points earning for spending yes, but I don't think BPay counts towards minimum spend for bonus offers (unless I mis-read the terms...

I'll pay $105. But then pay with my Amex card and get $105 back, so *shrug*.

Are people getting emails or app notifications like normal Amex offers after making spend? Are credits coming through? Have the offer...

Don't need to check your balance if you spend exactly $100 on the first and only transaction that ever goes through the card.

My experience is that if you say "I want to cancel" (which used to be the strategy) they won't try and entice you not to, but if you say...

Likely Amex trying to provide value to the card. My annual fee is coming up in a couple of months and my plan was (is?) to call them up and...

One thing I've appreciated in travel overseas, is that retailers have to take back and dispose of any packaging of items that they sell....

I figured that was similar to all their usual offers (spend $x at wherever and get $y back or spend $x and get z points) that all have that...

Anyone seen bonus points from this yet? Do they turn up with the base points from the transaction, or when the statement is issued, or...?

Qatar are a Oneworld airline so you'll be wanting Qantas points to target an RTW including them, not Krisflyer.

Can't use online. You'd need to pay in person at council office or a post office.

Re Westfield, it does (I've done the exact same thing) but looks like someone like you beat me to all the Westfield cards!

It's happened. Emergency vehicles already get the priority service. But they'd probably cancel the original response and send you another...

Their Forex rates aren't great (although a lot better than some other prepaid travel cards). Better off using ING, Macquarie, Citi, UBank,...

They rolled out a new app a couple of months ago. It's a new one in Play store, not an update to the existing one. It's... slightly less...

If you deposited $2k last month it carries the benefit to this month (so effectively a $2k deposit gives you the bonus for the rest of the...

Arguments over whether HFC or VDSL are better aside, not everyone had an existing HFC network in their street for the NBN to co-opt. And...

$8500 for 3000 points. Joking, right? I would average ballpark $3-4k through that card a month usually.

No such thing as 3x any more on Plat since the brave new world. I still spend on Plat mostly, 1.125 SQ points beats 1.25 VA or QF on the...

Domestic cross country flights (i.e. Perth to east coast or back) are very worthwhile in business if you're on one of the wide body (A330)...

Don't transfer to KF and wait. Keep them in VA and wait, then transfer to KF if and when a good deal comes up. KF miles have a hard expiry...

Any experience whether transferring money into the HSBC account via Been it (so it processes as an EFTPOS refund) counts towards the...

Not experienced, but I use android pay as much as possible rather than the physical card to avoid Least Cost Routing and getting processed...

PayPal are scumbags, but in this case it's not their issue. The money has been pulled from under them by the card scheme. No idea if it's...

Can't put it in a dishwasher. Easy enough to handwash but I'm lazy.
