    Flaw in Qantas Points Club Calculations

    I keep all my qantas point transactions in a spreadsheet (I'm a nerd). And in doing so, I noticed there is a major flaw in the way that Qantas Club points are calculated. When purchasing an item through the qantas mall, the Frequent Flyer points are sometimes not allocated for a few months...

    Do Tasmanian Woolworths customers really prefer the "Frequent $hopper Club"?

    For whatever reason, the Woolworths Rewards program does not operate in Tasmania. Instead, there's the Frequent $hopper Club which is not affiliated with Qantas Frequent Flyer. Tasmanians therefore cannot earn Qantas points at Woolworths, nor are they able to take advantage of the current status...

    Up to 150,000 points with Qantas Insurance (until 8 May 2020)

    Qantas is offering up to 150k QF points with new health insurance policies until 8 May. Earn up to 125,000 points in the first year, and 25,000 more points for renewing the policy for a second year. I think the full amount of points only comes with the top (i.e. most expensive) policies. Anyone...

    Odd(?) QF earn posting

    Does this make sense to anyone? Flew JL35 (booked as QF4026) 4NOV. With the normal posting from JAL operated flights, it should have posted on Nov 5 (JAL does weekly batches to QFF posting on Tuesdays) or Nov 12 if it missed the batch. Hadn't posted by Nov 16, so sent in a claim. Around 2...

    Rate of earn for Business Saver fare

    I thought the answer for this would be pretty easy to find through a web search, but I'm having no luck! For a city pair, say SYD to LAX, the Virgin / Velocity website only shows the distance in miles, and not points earned. There doesn't appear to be any info on their entire site which...

    Flying CX ex-ADL to maximise SC earn

    I see that the QF SC earn when flying CX in J ADL-HKG is 100 SC compared to 60 when flying say MEL-HKG. I assume due to QF not flying to HKG ex-ADL themselves. On a return J flight that is 100+ extra SC earn when taking into account the MEL-ADL positioning flight. Note, I'm actually looking...

    Using Complimentary Lounge Pass while earning points for BA

    I have a couple of flights coming up CBR-SYD-CFS and I have a complimentary lounge pass allocated for SYD. I would like to earn points on BAFF rather than QFF, is there a trick to doing this? I'm guessing I'd have to change the FF to BA, fly the first leg, change it back the Qantas, enter the...
