    Need to decide which to earn - Velocity or Krisflyer

    Hi there, I need some help determining whether to put my future KF points into Velocity. An experienced KF/Velocity holder should have an opinion, and I'd like to hear it. As a new FF collector, I have a healthy QFF account, a very minor Velocity account, (which I pool to my husband who has...

    Answered Can you earn Qantas and other program points on different flights in one QF booking?

    I have a trip coming up where the routing is BNE-LAX-ORD-DFW-SYD-OOL. Ticketed by QF and all of the legs are on QF or AA except for one, the LAX-ORD leg which is on UA. It is not a code share so it's a UA flight number. I will have my QFF number recorded against the reservation to ensure I...

    United launches MileagePlus shopping portal in Australia

    This was in my United MileagePlus newsletter for this month: Bizarrely, the link in the email doesn't actually work - it takes you to a website in Hebrew. I assume that's just an error with the newsletter and the shopping portal is actually happening.

    Earn & redeem KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air

    This month's KrisFlyer newsletter states that it's now possible to earn and use KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air flights (regional subsidiary of Aegean in Greece). I couldn't find much more info about this on the SQ website. Presume the award pricing is the same as the Star Alliance award chart.

    Virgin Flyer Visa - Earning Points on Government Spend (Rates, ATO etc)

    Has anyone had success earning points on Government Charges on the Virgin Flyer Visa through services like B2Bpay or Reward Pay? T&Cs say you can't use the card for ATO or council rates, so I'd love to know if anyone has found a workaround for this. I have a bunch of council rates and ATO...

    If BPAY is 'not an eligible purchase' to earn points, how do you pay your bills? Bankwest World & Amplify

    Checking the fineprint of the St. George Amplify Visa, and the BankWest World Mastercard, both state that BPay payments are not 'eligible purchases', to go towards the Qantas points. So how to pay bills and still have it eligible, to go toward the $6000 for Bankwest World or $4000 for Visa...

    Answered Change from Oneworld FF program to QFF to earn miles/credit

    I have a flight coming up in Qantas discount economy. There are no miles or status credits awarded to my Oneworld program, but I would like to use my status to get lounge access, priority luggage and so on.

    Qantas denies double points due to definition of "booking"

    Well, it's not the first time Qantas have done me out of points, but it's the last time I'm taking it lying down. After registering on May 8 2019 for Double Points, I booked flights on May 13, departed on May 14 and off I went on a work trip to Chile. Curiously, the double points were not...

    Switching earn from QFF to AA

    Hello all, It looks as though I will be (sadly) moving from amazing Australia back to the USA later this year. And one of the things I'm trying to figure out is the transition from QFF back to AA, since I'll be doing most of my flying with AA once I'm back there. I've just qualified for...

    Sydney to Japan - Earn Velocity Points?

    Planning on going to Japan in February and want to take advantage of earning SC's for the trip. Looking over the flights through Virgin partners, Singapore Airlines looks like the only viable option. Does anyone have any other creative routes i could look at to maximise SC earn potential?

    Rockpool group no longer offering QFF points from 15th August 2019

    Manager at El Camino Cantina informed me that the businesses have split ways as of two weeks ago and you can no longer earn QFF points on purchases. I guess it was always "subject to terms and conditions" however this may be a sign of things to come. Anyone else experienced something similar?

    20,000 extra Qantas Points for first-time cardholders

    Just saw this promo on the Qantas site. 20000 extra Qantas Points for first-time cardholders This offer probably won’t apply to most since it needs to be the first time getting a Qantas credit card. I thought I would still try registering to see if I still get the bonus especially after...

    What "lessons" will VA learn from today's changes to QF's FF program?

    My cynicism about frequent flyer programs may be shared by some other AFFers. An airline has all the power; you and I have none, and it can change the rules at any time. What, if any, lessons will VA and its Velocity program learn from the 20 June 2019 "enhancements" to QF's FF scheme? In...
