great website, love the reviews.
Still relatively new to this whole game, but here is my situation and question.
in 2017, flew ALOT for work (70+ flights), im gold on Virgin and silver on many other carriers (not Qantas). This may sound silly, but it is due to work conditions, so outside of my control.
Best way to keep gold or how to ‘convince’ Qantas to status match (will this reset the 12 month period?)
I have successfulyl signed up for and attained 100k points from AMEX Explorer thorugh your website (thanks!). I have just applied for ANZ FF Black Qantas - I assume I will be approved. So looking forward to that. Question 2 is - how does all this applying and then eventually cancelled cards effect my credit? I know you would not be able to answer specically, but did you have an overvall view of the impact?
my partner has just moved to MEL (we were both syd based) and my work has allowed me flexibility to work between two cities and will grant me a travel budget to help with this cost - best advice for maximising the benefits I can get from this? Will do SYD-MEL return on avg 3 times per month, have enough budget to fly QF/VA so long as i am well planned and take the cheaper fares. Lounge access is important to me.
Please note I much prefer VA domestically and have had a few negative experiences with QF, so prefer VA.
Appreciate your wisdom!!
