It matches the reward zones when redeeming. Zone 1 is 0-600 for a reward ticket..
I was on phone to VA on Friday, after resolving an issue, I did ask about the DSC offer & the new bonus SC offer, the lady checked with someone & told me that yes I will get the DSC on my flights at the increased level on this recent offer. She specifically confirmed I will double dip, used those words.
MEL-OOL J so gone from 70SC per sector to 105SC, decent jump on DSC & 3 return pax on Family pooling. 420SC extra, instant WP status.
Now to be able to enter QLD by late Nov, may have to move the trip.

Not quite sure how it was calculated but got 155sc on a DSC J booking CNS to BNE
On other thought , as it's extended till Feb 2023 , do status credits make any difference even to the status as they expire in a year ? It's been sometime so getting my head around it .. cheers
Yes, that makes sense, thank you. Not quite double dipping but I didn’t actually expect it would be double the 95 SC.Was it a Business Saver fare by any chance? That's the only way I think you can get to 155 SCs:
CNS - BNE is 865 miles, which puts it in Zone 2.
Earn rate for Zone 2 J Saver prior to Aug 19 when the DSC offer ran was 60 SC.
Enhanced rate for Business Saver fares under the new offer is 95 SC.
So they've given you the new base SCs under the latest promotion, plus the second set of 60 bonus SCs you would have got under the DSC offer. 95 + 60 = 155.
So, sort of double dipping -- not quite double the 95 SCs offered under the latest offer, but better than either the 95 SCs under the current offer or the 120 SCs you would have got under the original DSC offer.
Thanks, I just can't see any mention of DSC offer??
I took a return flight from ROK - BNE last week in Business that I booked before the new fare structure although according to that linked Bonus SC list I should get 80SC each way if booked before or after the 19th Aug.
Anyway my whinge is that I only got 75 each way?? I deffo flew Business and not Bus Saver as there wasn't any of them when I booked. Business was only $199 each way which was a bargain compared to Flex at the time. Has anyone else flown that or similar Zone 1 route and had the same happen? Just checking here before calling up VA as I may have worked it out wrong. Here are some screen shots: Thank you for any help View attachment 264200
Thanks for that - I couldn't work out all those letters. There have been quite a few Flex dearer than Business lately from ROK-BNE & return. I could have sworn that the Bus Saver option was greyed out though Looks like I was wrongThe fare basis indicates it was an 'I' fare, which was Business Saver. (and if it was cheaper than Flex, then it probably would have been a saver)
