Interesting T&C about gift vouchers - guess that loophole is now closed - maybe that is what someone was referring to when they said that Qantas is devaluing :)

Frequent Flyer - Member Specials - Double Points offer

(yes I know, that says Double Points, but the actual page refers to DSC)

New T&C does not permit Government Travel to qualify:
In accordance with Commonwealth policy, this offer is not available to you if you are travelling for Commonwealth purposes.
* This offer is valid when you register and make a new eligible flight booking between 12.01am (AEST) 9 August 2018 and 11.59pm (AEST) 14 August 2018 and travel between 21 August 2018 and 8 August 2019. An eligible flight for the purpose of this promotion means any Domestic or International Qantas operated flight with a QF flight number on your ticket where Status Credits are normally earned. For full details, see terms and conditions. Status Credits will not be earned on some fare types and booking classes including Classic Flight Rewards. See Airline Earning TablesThis link will open in a new window. for details. Flight gift vouchers purchased but not redeemed for an eligible flight booking during the promotion period will not earn double Qantas Points. Bonus Status Credits earned from this offer do not count towards Loyalty Bonus or Platinum One Bonus Reward earn requirements. Each passenger can book multiple new bookings and be eligible for the offer. Status Credits may take up to six weeks after completion of travel to be credited to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Flights are subject to availability and any applicable fare conditions. Flights can be booked via the Qantas website, a travel agent or Qantas Contact Centres. Fees may apply. Your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number must be recorded at the time of registration and booking to earn Status Credits. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer by Qantas. Only one Double Status Credits offer can be used per individual qualifying segment of your itinerary. If you qualify for multiple bonus offers, the offer first registered for will be applied to each individual qualifying segment. Full or part travel of an itinerary is eligible only if you book and travel within the promotional dates as listed above. If you change or cancel your initial qualifying booking and/or travel is completed outside the promotional period, this bonus offer will not apply.
Suggestion: Register after 1000am AEST on August 9, 2018.

That was in the changed T&C for this promo so it's not entirely new.

Double points?! Can’t they get anything right?? That one phrase will generate a thousand replies on here.

Also makes an appearance in the T&Cs:

Flight gift vouchers purchased but not redeemed for an eligible flight booking during the promotion period will not earn double Qantas Points.

Great pick up!! So all those GV bookings are A-OK for Double Status Credits then. bwhahahaha

spot the intern who did a lousy cut and paste job? so poor QF. Honestly this just sums up their entire operation at times.

Can’t wait, I’d been getting used to dsc offers earlier in the year, however this is right after my anniversary. Love it.

And of course I didn't read the whole post so clicked through. Maybe it's because it's way to early to be at up in bed! Upon selecting register I entered my details and got a page 'This promotion is now closed.' Then next page says thanks for registering...

I'll register again tomorrow

Oh wow. You sure this is a general offer open to everyone?
Browsing the QF website I see no reference to it. Not under member specials or the home page banner. Did you get an email or something @RichardMEL ??

Interesting that you cant book flights yet. Almost look like they posted it a day early and it's not meant to be up yet.

No plans to fly, no point in GV , so I shall miss out on this one.
And I can’t see anything on my log in anyway. Is this targeted?

I recall QF previously ran a points promo this time of year with some targeted also getting dsc. With this page it could be a work in progress that isnt meant to be live. Could end up being a double points with targeted double status credits.

First thing that jumped out at me.

As mentioned before, this is why when I phone the Frequent Flyer Line, they don’t know the difference between Status Credits & Points. Lack of attention to detail and poor training.

I call the FF Line to query my “missing Status Credits” only to be told my “points” have been posted. AKL call centre frequently insist that Points & Status Credits are the same thing, even calling them Status Points

BTW. Gift Vouchers bought during the February DSC Promotion (I still have a dozen), and used to book eligible flights during this promotion should earn Double Status Credits.

Will be interesting to see if it still works.
I have always felt bad for people who booked a bunch of flights right before an offer like this appeared. Now it’s my turn - I booked four flights yesterday.

Win some/lose some.

I tried to register and got an error message that the promotion is closed. Was anyone else successful in registering?

In the last DSC promotion, most routes and fares types had little on offer except a French Pacific Island that all of sudden became popular for those chasing status.;)
