I am visiting HKG next week for 6 days and will be making some reasonable expenditure throughout the trip for various reasons.

If you do choose to use the Premier Platinum card, make sure you always opt to pay in HKD if given a currency choice: if you opt to pay in AUD, you'll only earn points at the 'Australian' earn rate (not the higher 'foreign currency' rate), and will still be charged the 3% international transaction fee. The business you're paying will also add their own margin into the HKD:AUD exchange rate if you pay in AUD at the point of sale (costing you more and getting you less), so always, always pay in HKD, haha.
