QF has some very good domestic specials from all major cities until Wednesday night. Not sure whether you can still keep the cost below $1300 for the required 180SC's.mgalbraith said:Hi All, I'm 180 status credits away from getting Gold and need to do it buy 31Aug, what is the best way to do it?
Business class SYD-MEL via CBR can be done for a smidgen under $500 for 80 SCs, so r/t for about $1000 gets 160SCs.mgalbraith said:Hi All, I'm 180 status credits away from getting Gold and need to do it buy 31Aug, what is the best way to do it?
I wouldn't have thought that someone doing a level of travel to get 500SCs is likely to get a huge value worth of extra FF miles from the extra 25% bonus tbh.simongr said:Isnt there also the benefit of additional FF points if you are gold? So if this person is expecting to maintain the same level of travle next year - they are going to increase their FF points 50% for the year - that might be worth it?
Would I spend $1000 just to get the next level of status - no way. But if someone else wants to do it, then I'll offer suggestions.Ikara said:I've watched posts on this site for some time now, and I have to buy into this one! Why on God's green earth are people willing to pay (possibly $1000) for Gold Status????
Gaia that is a great return for $/SC but assuming that mgalbraith lives somewhere in Australia the cost would still be well over $1000 as he/she would still need to get AUS-AKL-AUS to utilise the above special LAN business class airfare.gaia said:LAN
US$510 AKL-SYD return 160 SCs.
US$245 AKL-SYD oneway 80 SCs.
