It might not be relevant, but I have a Qantas Ultimate AMEX, recently just use the free flight and it credit SC and Qantas Points to my account.
I have just checked the T&C and it clearly stated that no Qantas point or SC will be earned on the free flight.
I might have been lucky. (I am a SG, not sure whether it matters)
sorry I'm a dope!!:shock:You were lucky! I got nothing! (Mine is a platinum edge)
