Although this thread is old:

I had a shocking experience with an ATM in GVA airport. I withdrew 1000 CHF and the machine gave me a single 1000 CHF note (worth about $880 at today's exchange rate)....

You can't negotiate anywhere in the world it seems from reading the posts on this board, maybe only if you spend 7 figures they'll only waive Platinum!

Asia Miles always gives me the "leave a message" recording and they never call me back. :mad:

I find it's best to call at 2-4am HKT and your call will be picked up within a minute.

I wonder if the Canadian CX card will experience the same thing:

The RBC CX Platinum Visa gives you 1 Asia Mile for $1 CAD spent, so about HK$6.30. Or you can use the Visa Infinite Avion to...

I got my AeroplanPlus Platinum about 2 weeks back and I still got the clear card. I'd welcome a change to the solid card as the old one looks and feels incredibly tacky.

Holy crap! What the hell were the people at CX smoking when they came up with that ungodly departure time from HKG? A 5:30 AM arrival in YYZ is just nuts, but I can handle it as I live here and the...

It's the Canadian banks who dilute the programs into the mainstream. In many countries, Platinum cards are invite only, and Visa Infinites only for the elite (Centurion criteria). I was able to walk...

Problem is... I watched as the card was clearly swiped and I highly doubt Starbucks or the Apple Store would deny AMEX as I see them routinely take these cards without hassle.
