It shouldn’t be targeted. They advertised it to all on the social platforms.

Wait for Happy Hour Thursday for any specials. I noted LAX prices have jumped
Overnight.

Maybe this will trigger QF to do a public one again? I think the last public QF one was Feb 19 but it didn't have a very long travel period - it was valid until flights taken until 31 August 2019

Anyone know if you earn status credits for the complimentary return domestic flight with the amex velocity platinum card?

Or likewise with the $129 gift vouchers from the virgin money card? I assume they would earn SC as it's just like an alternate payment method?

Had been talking about going to MEL with the family in January to have 10 days holiday with friends. It's now on!

Everybody registered and time to book the airfares, using a discount code and family pooling to me. 240 SC's towards Plat re-qual. Yeah baby :D

As long as the flight number starts with VA , one can get the double status credits. There is no restriction on how you book the tickets. Happy to be corrected as it worked for me in past as well.
The flight/s also has to be operated by Virgin Australia. But yes, no restrictions on the booking channel :)

I'm so happy! I was just asking this question around a week ago. Now I will 100% get back to Gold, and won't need to book an Elevate Fare, to do it.
We should get to Gold after our outbound flight, is there a lounge at Gold Coast? Never been there before and will be for our return flight.

Sure it's, cosy little lounge at GC. Was there few months ago, practically empty. Didn't go in peak business hours though.

Depending on how long you are there for it’s unlikely your Gold upgrade will be processed before you fly out.

I’m guessing multistops earn bonus credits for each leg? Found some decent fares from Sydney to Auckland via Brisbane and Melbourne which are very tempting.

Well that is WP locked in for another year and thanks to the promo code thread discount J prices were just above the freedom fare (flex Y) which I would normally book. Now time for a double or triple points offer.

Is there a quick/easy way to search for flights via SCs earned on certain dates rather than to specific destinations? Or is a TA the best approach for this?
I'm looking for a 120 SC run (doubled to 240 SC with this offer) one weekend in December, ex SYD.

Why go to a TA who is unlikely to understad the nuances of a FF. You have all the help you need right here. Somebody may kindly give you some ideas...people cleverer than me :eek:. C'mon members, ideas please for @vetadam

Bookings made. $420 each return for mix of Elevate outbound and Getaway inbound. $1,681 for 3 adults and child @ 240 SC's ($7 per SC) - if I have calculated correctly. Terrible rate, but cest la vie.
