Guilty! I was a first year uni student then and didn't know anything...

Confessional time... has anyone paid for a QFF membership and willing to speak out?

I did. :oops:

This was when I was about 14 years old and didn't know about AFF yet.

I still regret spending that $82.50 to this day, although I've at least recovered the cost back (and then some)!

I paid for Big John Jr.

He was only 3 years old and no longer qualified to be carried in my lap.

I figured if I had to pay for his seat, he may as well earn some points as well.

I also reasoned that the cost of joining could be amortised over the rest of his life !

I signed up via Everyday Rewards when that partnership with Woolworths was launched in the late 2000's. I thought it was so clever at the time scoring a free QFF membership.

From memory I do not think we ever paid joining fees. My membership started when QF comped all AN Golden Wings members to the QF Pub for 1-2 years after AN lost the defence contract in the early 1990s. MrsM joined via Woolworths, similar to what @dylarr mentioned above and MissM was enrolled via the Joey Club and I am pretty sure it was free.

I didn’t realise that anyone had actually paid the joining fee.

Did not pay. in 1994 was given QFF membership when CO exited oz and I had a small number of miles that were converted to QFF points. At that point I was an AN guy so it was a bit of an orphan account up til the events of 2001 with just the odd flight here and there.

I bypassed the fee in the mid 90's by joining the QP - it came with "complimentary" QFF membership.
