I received a letter from TelstraClear yesterday saying they were changing the way they give AA Rewards.

In short instead of 1 point for every $15 spent it will be 10 points for every month where you spend $79 or more.

This means if you spend less than $79 you will no longer get points. Also if you spend more than $150 you will get a maximum of 10 points not more.

I have only a 10GB cable modem plan with no phone for $54.95 p/m which gave 3 points now but will give none from now on. The letter suggests one add extra services to spend more than $79 to not lose AA Rewards.

I wonder how many others out there spend less than $79 so will lose their AA Rewards. Also how many spend more than $165 so will only get 10 points and not 11 or more as at present.

With my 10GB cable plan becoming 20GB from next month for a modest price increase that's great - TelstraClear giveth and TelstraClear taketh away.

Try being $300 a month and now getting half the points you once did.

I got a letter saying how much better off I'd be with the change.

The problem is my $79.95 plan will cost $69.95 from next month so I'll now get no points at all.

Massive PR fail.

I'm in the same position as you geek4me.
Had to laugh at the suggestion of purchasing more services from TelstraClear to earn a few AA points!
