Swagbucks are through amazon. Basically you get points for using their stuff: shopping through them, watching their videos instead of youtube, etc. the main one I use is their search engine. You get points for searching, because they sell your info. I figure, google sells my info anyway, so I may as well get paid for it! You can redeem points for all sorts of gift cards. If your interested, I'd love for anyone to use my referral link:
Really? By law, FF companies' must give notice of SIX MONTHS' in writing, for any changes. And of course they'll change, that's just good management & business sense. They'll change to suit market requirements.
Yes, Virgin's Velocity and Emirates' Skywards. Both are excellent for upgrades and free flights and are free to join.
You need to book early if you want to use points for flights and upgrades depend on the popularity of the business class seats, so learn how to get the best out of your points!
I fly every month and think its not worth the money you spend on the points. eg..Qantas Frequent Flyer point, you have to spend $20,000 to get $100 worth of ticket.... nooo its not worth it.. You can get cheaper flight on same route with other airlines..
As I was saying,I do not collect these sorts of points as I do not travel! I have benefited from the Woolies Everyday card as I give all the great petrol deals to my very kind neighbour who takes me shopping rather than me having to use taxi services! Unfortunately,being ill has a lot of downsides,but I am more than happy with my lot,as I have the loveliest neighbours and friends here who help me a huge amount,in so many ways. I also have many interests which keep me occupied despite my restrictions!
Yes I do collect frequent flyer points. We built a house last year and paid every thing with the credit card. We were lucky enough to use our points to go to New York last year! I definitely recommend using the frequent flyer system!! :) :)}
Yes, as I usually travel by Qantas, but just a few times per year. Sometimes I 'd shop in Woolies and collect some frequent flyer points using everyday rewards card, However, the points I've collected per year is very limited, so at year end, I will transfer them to my husband's account.
I think this a big con. Ones got to fly like a regular airline staff to be able to get these big awards.After the going thru' the whole shopping trip you then wait again & go thru the whole drama with a check out person & I just can't wait to get out ASAP than rather waiting for another charade with check out person.
Ugh, a pain b.c it's mostly unattainable like fly bys sure you can get stuff if you buy thing with flybys but yikes you need zillions of points and I don't drink wine. On A Current Affair this last week they had the pros and cons of these kinds of cards. I use everyday rewards from Woolworth as its good for petrol.
To get specials on certain products you must use your card in order to get the reduced price which are yellow ticketed items, if not you pay full price. :}
All good to make you spend more I guess.
Yes absolutely! I fly regularly for work with qantas & have my credit card linked to qff as well as everyday rewards. My husband flies occasionally too. I've been able to use the points for business class upgrades and free flying guys for my husband in the past. I'm currently building them up to have free flights overseas for a family holiday. It's definitely worthwhile. You may as well get something for free with your shopping!
