It's showing up for me in the Qantas Wellbeing app. Should be credited next Thursday. I can also confirm it is indeed for new app users...

Isn't ADSL2+ going to be cut off? The upgrade in technology alone is enough. There's also a slight improvement in speed for 12/1,...

I actually hit the "unsubscribe" button when I first got the "resume order" email and didn't get the "$20 off" email. However, using the...

How messy is the cancellation process should I leave after six months?

"The $250 Qantas Travel Credit completely offsets the card fee" is too opinionated. American Express Travel doesn't offer the best prices...

1) Use the "Report" feature. 2) You can see the end date is also different. The deal's been changed.

They expire 12 months from date of issue. You really should read the proper web page for this product rather than the outdated one from...

You don't get "passes", you get "invitations". You link the invitation to a flight and access the lounge using your boarding pass for that...

That might actually be a good idea. You wouldn't be eligible for the 80K bonus points but you wouldn't be extending the cool down period...

The points could be available as early as 17 August. (18 June + 60 days, ignore time to receive the card and make the payments)

For those who are in a similar situation and don't want to rely on the call centre to give you the right answer, this method might be of...

I should add that I also applied through the Finder deal and I wasn't an existing customer. Perhaps that was the difference. Had to pick up...

I called 1300 859 100 / (+61 2) 9155 7722 instead and they said it was already linked.

It should be okay to cancel once you receive the bonus points.

I can confirm two consumer credit enquiries on my credit file. One from "AMERICAN EXP NEW ACCTS NSW", one from "WESTPAC CARD SERVICES".

You have to account for the markup of their prices. It's not straightforward to get $100 value from a $100 Myer gift card. As for...

I should also mention the hassle of chasing up Westpac should the bonus points (or even the standard points) not arrive.
05/07/2018 - 07:21
When you get (fully) approved by Westpac, you'll also get a separate email from Amex saying "We've received your Card application" with...

The only catch is having to spend that much, the two credit checks and the burden of cancelling the cards.
