Rollover on Gold?

I'm about to reach enough SP for Gold and still a number of months from the anniversary. I don't think I'll reach Elite either.

So what happens to the additional SP that I earned on the current year? Do I just lose them? I know with Elite they can rollover.

Could it also be good idea to fly Qantas once I've hit the cap and work on their program?

Yep they will be lost.

Just so I'm clear, I think my situation is similar to OP. I'm currently Gold and my next anniversary to retain Gold is June this year. My next flight in April will tick me over easily to retain Gold. I also don't think I'll ever hit Elite either. Does that mean that all my booked Air NZ flights from April - June this year will be essentially wasted SPs...? Or will my Gold anniversary date change as soon as I retain Gold next month?

Theyll be wasted SPs. You anniversary date will only change if you make Elite.

If you have flights planned/booked between Apr-Jun, what is the shortfall to make Elite? It might be easier to make Elite than you think by adding in a SP run….

Alternatively accrue those flights to another program ifthat is of interest. And of course you’d still earn $APs as well, no not a total loss.

With all the SP that will also disappear from April - June, there is a shortfall of around 250SP to get to Elite.... which will have to be a long-haul SP run... which probably won't happen (sigh)

I'll have to toss up whether it's worth it for $1,700. However, if I do decide, what routes are bang for buck? Full fare AKL-WLG? AKL-ZQN?

WLG to NPE/TRG/NPL via AKL is roughly $832 return and should give around 124SP if bought on flexirefund.

If you're AKL based, it will be a bit more expensive, but something like Auckland to HKK via CHC

if you're CHC based, similar to the WLG route, target NPE/TRG/NPL via AKL

Easy, see above 😎. WLG-AKL-NPL return on Saturday then again on a Sunday is a well trodden route for a couple of FTers here.

One just needs to carefully consider if the benefits are worth it - and that is very subjective.
