I have had a Platinum Edge card for years (co-branded with the law society so it is an affiliate card) and used it mainly to collect Velocity points. I have recently emptied my Velocity account with 5x business class return tickets to Europe. I was a little soured with the experience (bad Call Centre) and taxes in excess of $7k for an Etihad booking.
I am a Qantas gold member and thinking about switching my point collection efforts to QFF. I now fly QF for work.
I have three options.
Keep the card and nominate Qantas direct points. It is at the same rate as Asent points. But I don’t get a travel credit if I go Qantas direct.
Remain with Velocity.
Get a Qantas Ultimate Amex.
Thoughts on what others would do?
