Did Simpler and Fairer(tm) kill DSCs?

All,
Haven't seen a Double Status Credit offer in a long time, nor any chatter about people getting one on this fine website... Best I have got since S&F enhancements has been a 50% SC for two weeks in December... Anyone see the DSCs anymore? Or have they been enhanced?

I was just reflecting in this today. My last pre-March 2014 flight is tonight. Next week I start on my 50% SC flights. My offer was very generous about a 3 month booking period for flights Jan to Feb 2015.

Perhaps people just aren't talking about offers now.

I seemed to receive an offer about once a year or 18 months.

Since Red Roo announced here simpler and fairer I have had none.

That sort of matches my experience. You used to 'possibly' get one a few months out from anniversary date if they wanted to entice you to maintain/reach the next status level. Sadly seems to be a thing of the past :(

Indeed. I was thinking it would be a nice and relatively easy way for QF loyalty to rekindle some of the relationships with its customers. Although perhaps they are wanting to deplete the WP ranks intentionally.

The fewer WPs they have, the less flack they will get when the WP level is enhanced away altogether.

I suspect it has more do with the "line in the sand" that was washed away, rather than Simpler and Fairer TM. although the two are probably linked.

Too many Platinums now.

No need for a huge leg up anymore. If you can get a 50% bonus SCs offer then take it.

My boss got one just a month before his anniversary, he was short on points at the time. He seems to get one every year.

For reference "anniversary" is not for 10 months, i have 20SC so far this QF year (with ~ 400 already booked).

Pretty much the same for me... my FPSC offer was in Dec, whilst my anniversary is in August

Got my first 50% earlier this week. Zero flights since my new year started 1/11 and no forward bookings.

Personally as a P1 I wouldn't expect one and I haven't had one since I made P1. That makes perfect sense - there's no reason for QF to offer it. Clearly it seems offers are out there, and targeted more to those that have dropped off for one reason or another or may need a litle more, but they seem to be doing more specifically targetted than general offers and that's fine.

The "buy in 7 days" one is interesting given the big sale on now. if I got one of those I'd book a J fare (or 2) 5 min after I got it lol

Do you mean flak? ( as in anti aircraft fire) or flack ? (as in publicity agent )

I only ever got 1 double status credit offer pre-simplification but have got 3 50% bonus offers since last July. I haven't been able to use any of the offers for various reasons but one which I could actually use would be very nice as I will probably not make Gold again this year.
