my birthday offers are for money off wine! Maybe they can read minds after all! No double anything useful though 😉

i just got email of 50% SC bonus for booking over next 1wk, but booking period to 10Apr2020

This is second 50% SC received in 3 months or so, both of which I have ignored.
  1. flight period just prior to Easter in 2020
  2. 50% SC? take that up your own closet. Give me DSC if you want me to fly J fare for a flight I don't need to take.

A week ago I received my first ever 50% bonus SC ina weird format.

The Subject of the email was "Fly to Sydney, get 50% more Status Credits."

It read as follows :

Dear Name,


There's never been a better time to book with Qantas. For a limited time, you'll be rewarded with 50% more Status Credits on eligible flights with a QF flight number on your ticket.*

You can enjoy this offer on an unlimited number of flights booked in the next 7 days so it's a great way to help get your Status Credits balance soaring.

Simply register and make a new booking between 9 December 2019 and 15 December 2019 for travel from 9 December 2019 to 7 April 2020. And don't forget to include your Frequent Flyer membership number in your booking.




I booked a sale J fare SYD-AKL return and MEL-SYD return for dates included. I doubt I will get 50% more on the sale J fare (extra 80 SC's) as it was part of the 12 days of Christmas sale. Also, I did not receive a confirmation email from QF confirming my registration for the promotion. Furthermore, the URL of the booking page seemed a bit strange as it had jul-2014 in the URL...



Did anyone notice the jul-2014 in the URL?


Anyway.... Maybe this is normal, it was the first targetted BSC promotion that I had received and used... (needed to travel to AKL and SYD on those dates anyway!)

What makes you think you wouldn't get the bonus on the sale fares? As long as your booking matches the T&C, you should get the bonus, and I don't think T&C have been specific about requiring you to book a particular fare type in the past.

A DSC flight earlier this year was booked into I class and paid SCs exactly as expected (ie DSC). Of course this was a QF code on QF metal. I can see a problem if itís QF code on someone elseís metal ( eg QF code TransTasman on EK metal ).

Great News.

I am yet to receive but I imagine a QFF mailout takes hours to distribute.

Perhaps part of the Coronavirus stimulation to keep bookings up.

Hopefully it arrives as I have a fair bit of travel to arrange.

It's on www.qantas.com to sign up.

It was actually announced as an attempt to stimulate sales today:

QF reducing capacity

Anyone know of any good business class earners for someone positioned in Asia? The old CMB-AKL fare seems dead now.

Excellent timing! I am just about to book an AKL/LAX one way ticket at the special Business Sale fares currently on offer and that combined with an AKL/DPS will get me back to Gold in no time. After that I will be looking for double points offers.

If you fly CGK or DPS - MLB via SYD in Business it is 320 status credits but 640 when DSC - can usually get for 25 - 27, 000, 000 IDR which depending in the exchange rate is somewhere between AUD$2600 - 2900 or USD 1900-2000
