Anyone got some suggestions on a UK card that earns QFF points?

(Not a travel card, something that earns points with my everyday spend now that I have moved to the UK)

Will need to close my ANZ card but I seem to remember my Rewards Amex had many airlines years ago but not sure what's available these days.

Why stick with Qantas now that you've moved???? Looks to other programmes. It doesn't make you any less Australian to drop Qantas!

Yeah maybe transfer your points to BA and when you come back to Australia for a visit  you can still earn points on Qantas-operated flight (not so sure about this part).

If I were you, I'd go Aadvantage and get the Aadvantage MBNA Credit Card, available to UK residents. Living in the UK, the chances of flying BA within Europe is much higher. For those flights, you earn pittance with QFF. BAEC is a great programme if you plan to fly in the premium cabin. It's the same with QFF, where the programme works best if you fly QF domestic a fair bit and fly internationally on QF metal.

Thanks TRB, I'm only here a few years so I'm thinking of saving the points for when we return.

Sorry I couldn't help with the main question, not really sure what card could help you.

BA's redemption taxes and fuel surcharge.

BA probably has the worst oneworld programme around with their recent slashing of tier points and Avios that you earn when you're flying Economy (which is commonly the cabin people fly domestic UK and intra-Europe in)...  I know a few unhappy BA EC members looking to switch to other oneworld programmes!
