Competition: Win $300 Luxury Hotel Voucher

Win $300 Luxury Hotel Voucher

We’re offering the chance for 1 lucky Australian to win a $300 hotel voucher to use at any Hilton hotel. Anyone can enter, so tell your friends and family.

What’s up for grabs?

Picture yourself checking into a 5 star hotel on the beach or in a bustling city here in Australia or overseas. That could be you! The winner will get a $300 voucher to use at any 1 of Hilton’s 550 hotels around the world. The competition starts today (27/10/14) and we’ll pick a winner on the 15/12/14… just in time for the Christmas holidays.

Who can enter?

Anyone. If you have friends, family members, co-workers or whoever in the following scenario then you can share this competition with them:

  1. A business traveller who could do with a comfortable home away from home.
  2. A married couple who wants a relaxing night away from the kids.
  3. Any traveller stopping over in an overseas city for a night.
  4. Be a blessing to someone else and give them your $300 voucher.
  5. Anyone who wants to experience staying in a Hilton hotel.

Here’s how to enter

This is not like a normal competition where you can make only one entry. There are 12 ways to enter such as writing a review of your credit card (worth 10 entries) or liking our Facebook page (worth 5 entries). The more entries you have, the better chance you have of winning.

  1. Login with your Facebook or Twitter to identify yourself (or use your email address).
  2. Answer the competition question to get started.
  3. Make more entries into the competition by doing the other easy tasks.

The winner will have the best combination of these two things: the best answer to our competition question and will also back that up with a high number of entries.

Important note: Some ways to make additional entries involve using our website to complete various tasks such as writing a credit card review. All entries will be validated and matched up to your competition profile.

That’s it. Enter below.

10 tips to make the most of your credit card

tips for using your credit card

Credit cards are a very useful financial tool by giving you the flexibility to conveniently pay for things without having the cash on you. Of course, a debit card can do that too but a credit card enables you to spread the cost of big-ticket purchases over a longer span of time and even out your cash flow from month to month.

11 Questions with Chris Guillebeau

Chris Guillebeau

Chris Guillebeau. Travel hacker, credit card churner, writer, entrepreneur & all-round good guy.

Chris is seriously talented at earning frequent flyer points and knows how to get the most value out of them. If you follow him on Twitter (you should), you’ll see that he walks the walk too: he has visited every country in the world and barely spends more than a month in one place. We caught up with him just before he set off on another round-the-world trip, booked with frequent flyer points. Enjoy!

Who Really Owns the Big Four Banks?

Who owns the Big 4 banks?

In response to concerns over how our financial institutions operate, we recently launched a piece of research on the issue of bank ownership in Australia. Often consumers who choose to bank with smaller, more independent banks may, in fact, be banking with one of the ‘Big Four’. The following examination of who owns the big four (ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB and Westpac) is the logical follow-on from that initial investigation.

Australia’s big four are not merely big, they’re massive. Humongous. Their combined assets in 2013 stood at $2.86 trillion—or roughly twice the size of Australia’s national income.
