Hi Jess,


Thank you for your inquiry.


The conversion of the CUA point to a frequent flyer point will depend on the FF program. Though transferring of your CUA points to FF points is not possible, you may be able to redeem them for flights with Qantas, Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines. To redeem, please visit the CUA Rewards website.


Cheers,

May

Hi


Can you do the balance transfer at 0% for 13 months – CUA platinum card after you received the card? Or have to do the balance transfer at point of application of CUA card?


Thanks

Hi E.M,


Thanks for your question.


Just to confirm, the minimum credit limit that you can request or will be approved for CUA Platinum Credit Card is $6,000. As for the exact figure for the income requirement, that will be determined by CUA. You may contact them directly to verify.


Please find CUA’s contact details I’ve sent to your email.


I hope this has helped.

Hi Max,


Thanks for your inquiry.


While the CUA Platinum MasterCard does not include car hire insurance, you can refer to our list of credit cards that offer car rental excess insurance. Select ‘Go to site’ to head over to their website to apply. Please ensure that you meet all the eligibility criteria and read through the details of the needed requirements as well as the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions before making a decision on whether it is right for you.


I hope this has helped.


Cheers,

Arra
