Bummer about tim winship. But he did much for the ff community. That was also the place where I got started doing online ff babbling way back in 2000 or 2001.

The Australian site Point Hacks seems to have been overlooked here thus far.

One feature not to be found on similar sites in the US and Europe is information about the commissions the site receives for successful credit card applications made via the links it publishes. This information is given by each link banner and summarised on a separate page:

I'd like to add my own site, Prince of Travel. It's mainly Canada-oriented content, and there's miles and points but also a healthy bit of general travel stuff on there as well. Enjoy!
