American Express Membership Rewards is a key credit card points program to understand as part of your points-collecting armoury. We’ve reworked and updated our guide to the program to more clearly explain a few key points.
Crediting Virgin Australia flights bought this month to MilleMiglia instead of Velocity will net you double miles in Economy Class and triple miles in Business, but is it worth the switch? If flying domestically, no; but if travelling abroad, yes.
If you factor in the the Best Rate Guarantee facility that Online Travel Agents offer, booking through OTAs instead of direct with the hotel becomes the cheaper option 100% of the time.
Qatar Airways has kicked off the Early Bird Sale season with cheap flights in Economy Class to these three regions, coupling it with a triple miles promotion and 10% discount on award redemptions. Sale ends 5 September.
HSBC have pushed up the bonus on the HSBC Qantas Platinum Visa Credit Card to 60,000 Qantas Points, one of the highest Qantas point bonuses out there for new applicants right now.
Cheap flights to this tropical paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean for travel in October or November this year. Take advantage of layovers by visiting Abu Dhabi and/or Dubai!
The earnings from these two promotions could be quite strong given how good value Asia Miles redemptions are.
Book northern spring travel from March to May 2017 from all five major Australian airports to Disney World, the Windy City or the Big Apple with these two oneworld carriers.
We check out the Air New Zealand lounge in Sydney to see how it stacks up as a Business Class traveller or for those with elite status with Velocity, Air NZ or other Star Alliance airlines.
BP is now prompting Velocity members using their cards for points earn at BP if they want to redeem points for credit as well. Don’t – it’s really bad value, at just under 0.6c per Velocity point.
Here is a chance to get a substantial 40% discount on purchases from retailers such as Myer, David Jones and ZARA, plus if you choose your date right, there will be an American Express lounge set up with complimentary snacks, drinks and beauty products.
When you fill up your car, should you go to BP and earn Velocity points, Caltex to earn Woolworths Points (convertible to Qantas points), or is Shell the better option to earn flybuys points to transfer to Etihad Guest instead? Which will give you most value?
If you are planning or considering travel in Economy Class on Qantas or Jetstar over the next year, this is a good opportunity to save some of your points, but be sure to be quick – sale ends 27 August.
