MattG, you're a legend.
Edit: It seems that I may have missed the boat. All return flights from OOL-CHC are currently $1752.
This may be OT - But, your thought on bang for buck on points upgrade bidding? My thought is if I get a valid DSC PNR in July, I can always change the date and upgrade to business class later.
Do you get the 5,000 points on an unlimited number of bookings, I wonder? And is it per flight, or per round-trip booking?
In regards to your query, the bonus points would have applied for each frequent flyer member per booking, not per flight. The bonus status credit from flying would have applied per flight.
That's if you can even get a car in Tassie. I was planning a trip to Tassie at Christmas, but due to their being literally 0 cars in all the rental agencies, I had to reconsider my trip.It's a common problem for any attractive travel destination at the moment, including in Australia too - I heard some eyewatering numbers for cars in Tassie and Cairns
Sorry to hear it @Bolt. We also had to change plans.That's if you can even get a car in Tassie. I was planning a trip to Tassie at Christmas, but due to their being literally 0 cars in all the rental agencies, I had to reconsider my trip.
I've received mine - I don't fly for weeks.
I went back to the email with the promotion and noted the language: "5,000 bonus points when you book, double Status Credits when you fly.*" It's abundantly clear (in hindsight) that you needed to book to get the points, not actually fly. If I'd picked up on that earlier ...
I don't think anyone really knows for sure yet. The T&Cs don't say either way, but I don't see any reason you wouldn't get DSC. Not sure about the bonus though - again, the T&Cs are really vague.
Either way, I'll find out next week and report back to this thread.
I don't agree.
Although the DSC may post, the T&C indicate the promo isn't eligible for DSC.
