What is the difference between credit card auto payment and direct debit.  Do you still get the same prompt payment discount and that the direct debit have some brownie points?

I think you only miss out on 10 brownie points for paying electronically (CC are excluded from that).

The Brownie Points are pretty much useless to me personally. I will need to run a nuclear power plant to get more than a desk fan.

heavenlywild: The Brownie Points are pretty much useless to me personally. I will need to run a nuclear power plant to get more than a desk fan.

You can always do this with them.

Just donated mine (3280 points = $32.80)

Select the charity that you would like to donate to and enter the dollar value that you would like to donate, this will automatically calculate the number of points you need.
Please note: 
A minimum of $10 is needed to make a donation. 

Select a charity Genesis Oncology Trust
Help us in the fight against cancer by donating your Brownie Points to the Genesis Oncology Trust. 
The Genesis Oncology Trust is a registered charity and provides funding to support New Zealand-based cancer research and professional education. These initiatives lead to improvements in prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and improvements in the palliative care of cancer patients. Every cent of every dollar donated to the Genesis Oncology Trust is used in cancer related projects. Visit

^ Not a bad idea. I never look into what's possible with Brownie Points after the initial read-up.
