I don't understand why anyone would be using a credit card offering <1 point per dollar when Woolworths' Everyday Rewards credit card offers 1 point per dollar on Mastercard. And before you say "because you can earn more with Amex" ... you'll end up paying for those points through Amex surchar...

Sep 06, 2011, 03.19 PM / Is there really such a thing as an 'international warranty' on laptops and smartphones?
It depends. Which app is it? Expensive ($30+) GPS navigation apps where you have pre-purchased a country map should not need to stream map data off the internet, but the safest way to use them would be to put your phone into airplane mode to disable the possibility of it using data. The GPS pos...
