Hi all, can anyone confirm if an award booking triggers the status credit rollover? My partner has accrued >350 SC from flying, all booked before 11 August, with her status end date 31 Jan, but the only booking we've made between 11 August and now is an award booking. The QF Status Support page says this:

What flights are eligible to qualify me for the Status Credit rollover?
To be eligible for the Status Credit rollover, you need to book, pay and have the ticket issued on at least one of the following:
  • Any Qantas operated flight with a QF flight number, or

I assume it's the same eligibility criteria as status extension:

How can I pay for the new booking?
Eligible bookings can be paid with cash, Qantas TravelPass, Qantas Flight Credit, Qantas Gift cards or with Qantas Points (via a Classic Flight Reward or Points Plus Pay). Bookings can be made directly with Qantas or through a third party such as your preferred travel agent.

yes, it should apply for the current status extension and rollover.

noting that this will not be reflected until 1 Feb (at the very least)

Can now confirm that the award booking did trigger the SC rollover. Shame they didn't count towards lifetime status though.

Lucky. My wife's membership year also ends in January and no roll-over yet. Also the membership card still shows valid to JAN 2022.
She should get status extension since she flew 4 QF flights on a QF reward ticket booked in October and she also has some active bookings not flown yet for February.

I don't suppose you chose the 15 SC as your vaccination reward? Did that rollover too?

Yes, my partner chose 15 SC for vax, also got 20SC for QF wine and 50 SC for BP, but can't tell if they would have rolled over however as she also racked up 540 SC from flying, so all 350 SC that rolled over (100 for Points Club + and 250 for Gold) came from flying.
My understanding though is that all SC earned other than those gifted by QF will rollover, which should include SC earned through vax promo, BP promo, wine promo and hotel promo.

What has happened with your wife's membership tier? You did not say if any of those flights were booked in the time frame for status extension, so perhaps that was the problem?

So after a few days her status went from Platinum to Gold for one day, then the following day it reverted to Platinum with the correct expiry date (Jan 2023).
I guess it would have been frustrating if she had been travelling on that specific day she was Gold and not able to access a First lounge overseas.
