On this DSC promo, I had no issue with my DSCs posting and there were many upgraded flights in there.

However, in previous DSC promos, I had to chase up DSCs on all upgraded flights. And when I called before the stated maximum posting period, they told me to wait until that period had expired before ringing back. On one occasion, I said to them that it was very unlikely that they would automatically post at this late stage and the agent agreed with me but stated that it can’t be manually credited any earlier than this maximum posting period.

just an update as data-point. The infamous bug of bookings made on first day of DSC registration period, before GMT UK time switch to the new date, is prone to issue. I had 2 bookings made in that manner (11pm UK time, but post 12am Australia time) the DCS are not posting after 3 weeks still. On the contrary bookings I made during promotion, but not first day, had it posted without issues.

I thought of contacting member service but i suspect they tell me to wait 6 weeks (why is that? most DSC post in 3 days anyways), so I've been holding off, unless others had difference experience. So my suggestion is, don't get too excited and book on the first day if you want seamless posting. Wait a day to book. Just another QF system nightmare

and thus the DSC of infancy had multiple loopholes (DSC towards loyalty bonus, etc) which subsequent interns were told to fix the algorithm
The whole FF program was replatformed last year, so there is a good chance that all the scripts were rewritten

No general DSC promos for everyone. But there might be specifically personally targeted promos for selected people.

i received targetted email for 50pct bonus on SC for booking: "make a new booking between 24 July 2019 and 30 July 2019 for travel from 24 July 2019 to 21 November 2019"

it went into my bin. i am not doing anything till DSC pops up for leisure trip...in previous DSC i always purchases business class so i dont want their AI/data mining robots to think i will alter my behavior with 50pct which may lower future chances of target email for DSC

oh far out, that would really help me out if I got that email right now! Any chance you still have the link you could share? Would save me doing a 33 hour journey when I could do a 24hr one!

If it's a targeted offer someone else's registration link won't work for you.

Anyone care to take a guess at when the next double status credit offer will emerge?

Only some of those those in Qantas marketing would know.

See @og 's post 66; that was the unofficial word doing the rounds a month ago.

Things may change but I would not count on it.
