At least not targeted, so this is a plus. And while the booking time is short the travel time is long.

thanks for posting! it's not from their main website for some reason you have to navigate to member special. Whereas in the past it was widely posted at front page.

11am Australia and this work experience guy is still at coffee

it say valid for booking from 12:01am AEDT but other websites say you better wait until 12.00AM GMT which is far later. I jumped gun and booked around 08:25 AEDT which i believe is before 12am GMT... what's the best way to validate the 6000 dollar i just spent is indeed eligible for DSC? should I email the plat desk?

Still at high school. When school's out for the day may be fixed

From older thread-->QF Double status promotion

There was also one double points promotion 1-5 March 2018.

Of course this gives no real indication as to what will happen in 2019.

The other website quotes are based on anecdotal experience.

This is that the 2 x SC's rarely auto post if booked on the first day of the promo but before midnight GMT (11am in MEL/SYD, 10AM in BNE when Daylight saving is active).

Generally this can be resolved by a call, but that can be a lottery.

If your email, like mine, has 12:01am AEDT than keep that email as that is the offer they sent you. If they had a 'different' offer on the website than so be it.

I go as far as keeping a screenshot of the registration confirmation page as well as last year on one of the promo's none of the bonus posted. They did credit however when I followed up.

Further to the above I see they now email you a confirmation of registration. I only keep the screenshot until the email turns up.

QANTAS has also increased its fares to coincide with this double SC offer. Over the last two weeks I have been looking at flying business class on a MEL-HKG, KUL:-MEL route. For that past two weeks the total cost has been between $3200 and $3350 for May 2019. Today, the first day of double SC offer the same fare is now just short of $3800. This means I am now effectively paying around $500 for their double status offer. Sometimes QANTAS can be too smart for their own good. I feel I am being tricked by QANTAS and therefore will be looking at other airlines.

Anyone seeing any good ex-Asia fares? Usually can get some decent prices for J ex-DPS (~$1500) but not seeing very much this year. Best I'm seeing is PEK-SYD-MEL for $2500 return which nets 660 SC and around 32k miles (assuming QF Plat).
