My wife has 925 points in her QFF NB account and they expire next month. She won't be flying any time soon so they will be wiped in due course. I tried to transfer them to my account but... "computer says noooooo...". Specifically, it said:
I checked the T's&C's and found the following:qantas.com.au said:You are unable to use Family transfers as you need a minimum of 5000 points to be eligible to transfer points to a family member.
So... it looks like it should be possible for me to transfer 5,000 points to my wife and for her to transfer 5,925 points back to me. Do others agree with my interpretation? And has anyone actually done this successfully?qantas.com.au said:11. Family Transfers
11.1 Once in each 12 consecutive month period a Member may transfer some of their Points to an Eligible Family Member, on the following basis:
(a) the Eligible Family Member receiving the Points must be a Member before the transfer is made;
(b) the Member transferring the Points must specify the name and membership number of, and nature of their relationship with, the Eligible Family Member receiving the Points;
(c) a transfer must be for at least 5,000 Points but no more than 100,000 Points, and must be in whole numbers of Points;
(d) once Points have been transferred, the transfer cannot be reversed or cancelled by either the Member transferring the Points or the recipient; and
(e) Qantas is not responsible for any incorrect transfers made at qantas.com where the incorrect transfer is not due to an error by Qantas, its employees or agents, and in such circumstances will not refund any Points incorrectly or mistakenly transferred.
11.2 Members must not require or receive any consideration (in the form of a payment or otherwise) for any transfer to an Eligible Family Member.
11.3 Members should note that such a transfer may have tax implications. Members are advised to check with their accountant or tax adviser for further information.
11.4 Family transfers may be made on this website, or by such other method advised by Qantas from time to time.
