Just for info, if you have a Woolworths Everyday Rewards card you can apply for a Qantas Frequent Flyer card free of charge (saving over $80), you can then get frequent flyer points for each dollar over $30 you spend.

You can also get credit cards linking to your Qantas frequent flyer, so it become possible to get free flights or gifts without ever flown.

If your still in the UK, it's still worth getting your frequent flyer card before you come over as it's free to people overseas.
