TK Offering x2 or x3 status miles on all routes: October 2019

TK has started a new promo that would give x2 status miles for all long-haul routes and x3 status miles for all other routes regardless of flight or cabin. The only requirement is that the flight should be booked within 2 - 20 October 2019 and the flights should be between 2 October - 20 December 2019. Also, please pay attention that the upper limit of this promo is 12.000 miles and notice that the miles would be credited until 31 January 2020.

My advice would be that for people having their status expiring before February 2020 to think one more time as when they are downgraded before the mileage credits to their account, dealing with TK with a feedback form when extra promo miles have not been credited could be a pain.

In addition, if you want to benefit from this campaign, do not attempt to use benefits from another *A program during your flight and do not enter any other FQTV number at the booking system. Miles obtained via the retroclaim option would not give extra status miles.
Example Case: For a passenger holding non-TK*G and TK*S and flying TK to upgrade his status to Elite; do not try to enter the lounge, do noy use your extra baggage allowance, etc... which come from your non-TK-*G FQTV card. If mistakenly an agent links your non-TK*G card to your reservation and you would need to retroclaim those miles, you won't get the extra miles.

It looks to me like status miles only, not redeemable miles. But then again, I'm not quite a professional at deciphering TK speak...

Yes, it's status miles only. No bonus ( redeemable ) miles.

The maximum (12.000) is not per trip. It's per member.
However, the maximum only includes the extra x1 and x2 additional status miles.

To clarify:

Flight 1
IST - XXX 1500 miles ( normal amount ) - (+3000 status miles bonus)
Flight 2
XXX - IST 1500 miles ( normal amount ) - (+3000 status miles bonus) ( total 6000 additional miles since now )
Flight 3
IST - YYY 2000 miles ( normal amount ) - ( +4000 status miles bonus ) ( total 10000 additional miles since now )
Flight 4
YYY - IST 2000 miles ( normal amount ) - ( +4000 2000 status miles bonus ) ( total 12000 additional miles since now )
Flight 5
IST-ZZZ 1600 miles ( normal amount ) - ( No bonus ) ( total 12000 limit already reached )

Where are you based?
Are you OK for turnarounds or you want to visit somewhere when you travel?
How many miles you would need? ( In total including the additional ones )

These questions would help.

No kidding... I stepped off a TK long-haul flight the same day the promo was posted here. But of course booked outside of the booking window...
