    Nice. While you're here, tell us a bit more about Aussie credit cards. I know from your other thread, issuers have different standards for what they consider to be positive credit history.

    Also - when you post a picture of your card, you should physically block the numbers with a Post-It note or the like. MS Paint (or similar) can be undone with the right software.

    Djrez - I shall do that next time - thanks.

    I have applied for AMEX 4 times in the previous 8 years however only just got in. Our scoring system works really different here - noone knows what their number is. In the case of AMEX previously I was getting rejected because my "internal score was not high enough".

    One method that people do use is lowering limits on existing credit cards before applying for new ones so that high limits do not go against them if their income is mid range and that is what I did this time and it worked.

    Now to start working towards the platinum charge ha ha !!

    Thanks sticf

    It's so nice to have member since 2012 on my card given how many days are left in the year.

    I like the bulging look of the EMV chip. Are the white lines supposed to be Qantas flight paths? If so it looks like some flights go to other planets.

    The white lines are patterns that appear to be flight lines but they are not. The chip does look good and I have paywave as well on this card . I am going to try and get the gold then platinum charge next!!

    Always on a mission that is me !!

    That's a cool card! Can't wait until we Americans get the Chip.

    Can you explain why you would want to drop the credit limit on your card further?

    The reason why I dropped my credit limits is because I was being prevented from getting new credit due to high amounts of credit being available.
