Double Qantas points

Hi there had an email about double points on new bookings made in the next few days. Can I book through a travel agent or do I have to book directly through Qantas.com? Thanks

As far as I know, you should be able to book through a travel agent. I think they have access to the same promotions that airlines publish directly to customers. Also, since the travel agent would be booking through your account, which got the email, then they should be able to take advantage of the promotion for you

The travel agent doesn't need to book through you QF account.

The T&C state that it can be booked through a travel agent.
You click the link in the email to register for the double SC/points offer, then make a booking that has your QFF number in it, within the booking period of the offer.

I got it but Mrs og didn't. Both WP and similar (but not identical) travel patterns.

I got the email, but while I have upcoming travel to book, I'm not sure I'll be able to get it done during the short booking window of this offer (this week by Friday).

But only for travel between AU/NZ and Europe? And no double SCs?

I got double status credits and double points. While I did recently fly Qantas, I only have a QF FF account to check award availability on its OW partners, so I haven't credited anything to QF.

Correct. It appears the double status credits offer is targeted while the double points is open to all.

Seems like it. I got a double SC offer.

5 days only! Book an eligible flight today and don't forget to include your Qantas Frequent Flyer number in your booking."

Thanks for clarifying. I didn't get any email but registered for the double points on the QF website. Having already requalified this year (well, 5 SCs short), I didn't need the double SCs, but they would have been very handy for next year.
