    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    June 14 shows award availability so the route doesn't appear to be cancelled entirely, although I checked random other dates without any luck (my experience with this route in the past = tough to snag award seats.)

    New [Amex] statement credits

    I also received the Telstra offer for my Plat Reserve CC, which I usually use infrequently (only with offers such as Shop Small etc.) About to undo my Telstra DDs so I can make use of this.

    Earn 10 SC per 2000 WWR converted to QFF (up to 50 SC) promo

    Thanks for the heads-up on the delivery option points offer. Just signed up...and made a calendar note to cancel. The T+Cs include: "Subscription fees apply after 30 days and will be automatically applied on day 31 of your subscription unless you cancel your subscription prior to this date."

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    @kpc, my cancellation was also made April 5. I made no phone calls or follow ups and received the taxes/surcharges the same date as you, although your points were refunded more quickly (in response to your 17 April call.)

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    The cash/taxes component of my international award cancellation finally landed in my credit card account 9 weeks after cancellation and 2 weeks in arrears of the points. I cancelled on-line and haven't received email notifications of the refund at any point. FWIW I received the exact same sum...

    Qantas Frequent Walker challenge - up to 300 free points during June 2020

    I signed up. Might as well take the points for my everyday walking.

    Qantas to allow free changes, cancellations to Classic Flight Reward bookings to 31 Oct 2020

    I've just (this week) received points for award booking cancelled 5/4, so approx 7 weeks. No sign of credit card refund though.

    My 50 came through as well, for a series of transfers over the past weeks.

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    This happened with my classic award booking, cancelled on-line. Points were refunded about 2 weeks later but no sign of cash/taxes yet.

    Earn 10 SC per 2000 WWR converted to QFF (up to 50 SC) promo

    My first 2,000 points transferred on May 6. I will post when the corresponding SCs appear.

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to 2019 n-CoV (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    In 2020 it's scheduled for a 29/8 start. I figure that isn't going to happen.

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    If you are buying a separate ticket from MEL-SIN-MEL, and therefore starting and ending your OWA in SIN, then the MEL-SIN-MEL mileage does not count toward the 35k of the OWA. The point of itineraries starting elsewhere could be any combination of the following: to save mileage and get better...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    1. In your example the start/end port is SIN, so you need to add the mileage MEL-SIN to the miles actually flown. 2. You don't need to book the entire itinerary. You can start by booking Leg 1 when those dates are released. When the flights for Leg 2 are released, you call and add those to...
