From Feb 20th to Feb 25th, that elusive Qantas Gold or Qantas Platinum frequent flyer status will finally be roped within reach. The airline has announced they’re offering Qantas double status credits on all flights booked within the next six days for travel between 28th Feb 2020 and 14 Feb 2021. However, you must register for the promotion prior to making bookings, to receive the bonus status credits.
It’s common for Qantas to offer two of these promotions per year, so this February’s offer was somewhat expected. That being said, it’s unknown when exactly the next might be, so flyers waiting to pull the trigger on some big upcoming trips should do so now.
As with all nice things, there are rules. Only those flights operated by Qantas and with a ‘QF’ flight number will be eligible, Commonwealth government airfares won’t earn double status credits, nor will bookings made using gift vouchers redeemed outside the promotional period. The ‘loyalty bonus’ choice of 50 status credits – or 8,000 points – for every 500 status credits earned will also be scrapped under the promotion.
