Building the points up

I know a number of people who put $100k + per year on their credit cards. That's pretty easy when you're paying GST + PAYE with it.

Obviously credit card earn is going to crash big time within the next 12 months or so when the expected interchange fee drop occurs.
Yes this is the easiest way to build up points
But due to the surcharges you are really paying for the points.
Still I find it is worth paying the surcharge as (the Westpac World Card) then has no fees and extra 55 days of free credit really assists the business cashflows (you do need several cards to time the payments or the days of credit can be very short)
