I have found some places don't accept them because they don't have any imprint on them.

Next time I might try www.cashpassport.com

Thanks Dean,i might look up the Westpac card.

Just up your elitist alley RB.. I have a black card with them. They are handing them out again, because platinum has become so common.

Does wonders when you pull out a black one.

My missus was shopping in Rome recently.. typical Aussie layback attitude and fashion.
All shop assistants thought she was casing the joint.

She bought a top, pulled out the black  and had an entourage at her beck and call following her around the store recommending products.

When you pay for a meal at the restaurant, the owner normally comes out and has a complimentary drink with you.

Quite funny. 

Feel like a rock star!

Sounds like a racial hate card.

Travelling in the USA, and paying restaurant tips on the credit card, makes reconciling the credit card  a headache.

Say the restaurants charges you $100 for a meal.

When you sign the credit card slip and give them a tip say $15.

They swipe your credit card again for $115

And then refund your credit card $100.

It gets really confusing because 3 transactions appear on your statement.

28 degrees mastercard is the only one worth considering in my opinion.

Im just back from China again today
no fees, cash available any ATM even in the middle of nowhere, and comparing to finance.yahoo.com I got the actual market rate of the day

look it up on whirlpool.net.au, theres always lots of discussion in the lifestyle section
lots of pilots and air hostesses etc use it

28degreescard.com.au is their site, apply online

usual deal to get 'free' cash overseas required, over pay the card

What I do is use a regular card for hotel security deposit (rare in Asia that they take more than $20! In Japan they dont even want a deposit most of the time) and save my 28 degrees for cash withdrawals which I do small and often. I dont like to have more than about $100 on me.

I have nothing to do with them, they are owned by General Electric, I just travel often. Your mileage may vary :)

westpac sent me a letter advising the points I would earn per $ would drop, WTF, then advised they'd contact me for a black card. That was a month ago, still waiting.

I assume the fee for the black card will be more.
