  1. Hi all I am due to make the move to Australia in October and currently looking at the best ways to maximise our money on flights/ build airline points as my partner and I and my Mum and Dad will be flying to and from Aus as much as we can to see one another. Does anyone have any tips/ guidance as to how you do it?
  2. Does anyone use any strategies with flybuys, WW rewards, point attracting credit cards etc? I decided now we're here we may as well earn points for our everyday spending. Started off with Coles and have accumulated quite a few flybuy points. Also opened a Woolworths reward account and (as Coles and Woolworths are equidistant to me) shopped there occasionally (when they had the specials I was after), earning points on there too. Then decided actually we should focus on one strategy. So opened a credit card account that attracts Qantas frequent flyer points and will use the Woolworths reward card to transfer into Qantas FF points as and when earned. I use the credit card to shop there so double dipping I believe it's called. I pay the credit card immediately and it's only used for something I would have spent using a debit card on. I just wondered what others do. Do you bother with points ? If so, what do you aim for?
  3. Hello everyone! I am having a bit of a problem with my UK based credit card - I have fallen into the usual trap of intending to pay it all off before the special 0% rate ended - and failed. I am on a residence visa but have only been here since January. I have a good credit rating in the UK - don't know if that makes any difference here? I am not eligible for another UK based credit card b ecause I don't live there but also it seems I can't transfer a UK balance to an Australian credit card. I am supporting 2 people on my modest salary so I can't afford to pay it off quickly and I owe about 3000 pounds. In the mean time the interest rate on my debt is now 27% and within a few months we will have to go home because it will be so extortionate we wont' be able to afford to live. Help! Any suggestions? Rachel
  4. Hiya I have been reading a thread about repaying UK debts before leaving for Australia. I tried to get through every page of the thread but got bogged down in all of the comments about the banking collapse ... moral responsibilty to pay off debts etc! :confused: What I would like to know is this: If I enter into a DMP with my CC and Loan companies in order to try and repay my debts quickly (and stop the interest building), will this affect my visa application? I have no intention of running away from my debts but also do not want to be stuck in the UK for many years to come whilst I am paying them off without entering a DMP. Any advice would be very much appreciated xx
