The problem with saying "Europe" is it doesn't even mean that. In the App it says "Europe" means "EU countries, UK and Switzerland,…

Update: I left it overnight to see what happens if I don't "renew" it. In the morning it wouldn't let me use data at all -- my iPhone would…

I've just tried it for fun from a European country. You have to signup using Apple signin, Google (I think it was? I might misremember), or…

That's weird because that page includes a lot of countries that aren't in Europe or the USA!

Nope. There's no Australian accounts that refund overseas ATM fees anymore.

There's a list of options on the wiki:…

I strongly recommend a laptop over a tablet to you. Tablets are great, but the problem particularly for compsci is you won't be able to run…

They operate under Westpac's banking license, so are covered under that.

And ongoing savings are speculative at best given it's subject to exchange rates.

Looks like you could use Optus (average $5/month) or Vodafone (average $3.33/month) prepaid long-term plans. Neither are particularly cheap…

Interest is only on the AUD account. You can only do international transfers using SWIFT - no local transfers in other countries.…

Yes. (Well, you _could_ -- you get as many account numbers as currencies that you apply for).
21/10/2018 - 23:50
They're... similar but different. Citi accounts are all based in Aus -- you can transfer in/out using SWIFT. You can also pay from them…

Better than others, but in my experience they're not as good as Transferwise.
06/09/2018 - 06:00
As others have said, it is in the T&Cs whether you noticed it or not. If I were you, I'd be speaking to AMEX and asking what they can do,…

> via the AusRegistry website You should probably know that AusRegistry no longer runs the registry for .au.

Change to one of the Qantas branded Amex cards? The discovery card has no fee, 1 qff pt/$. I dont know how that compares to what you have…

[@ChiefAJ](/comment/6168680/redir): Thanks for finding that! Well in that case it might make sense to go with ACM membership (on the…

Nope - they're available in-browser, or through a proprietary Android/iOS app. There's no download option in the current version of Safari.
18/07/2018 - 12:10
Thanks. I'm going to guess it probably still is, then.
18/07/2018 - 11:13
I don't have experience with those other sites, but I find the most useful part of Safari is the quick access to full books (particularly…
18/07/2018 - 10:49
Do you know if the access through ACM is for the same content as the regular Safari subscription? I've seen in the past that access through…

They're listed as an agency on the USJ website: https://www.usj.co.jp/e/travel/ That (and the usual safety nets of credit card chargebacks)…

Damn, wasted 25c by using my ING Visa. 😢 (According to the rates at authorisation at least)
15/07/2018 - 16:14
No, sorry. 4 adults total across 2x transactions. $56.79AUD was for 2 adults, so $113.58 total for 4 adults. Sounds like you might have…

This is a great deal, thanks OP. Just booked twice (4 tickets total) for 2018-08-31, tickets were issued instantly. I didn't receive any…
