jasonb replied to Baghern on ANZ Frequent Flyer Platinum Visa Bonus 60K Qantas Points (Spend $2,500 in 3 Months) ($0 Annual Fee for 1st Year, $295 after)
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...

Not without staff intervention.

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...

PITA to use in store. Zero problem online.

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...
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!

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...

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...

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...
