Can anyone help me... my points are due to expire 30 Sept 2006 and was wondering if a family member transferred points to me, would that count as activity? Also fly on cathay and Qantas to HKG in July 2004 but no points or flights are shown on activity statements...any point in chasing this up as past the 12mth missing points clause? Also if i transfer pts to member member will they still have same expiry on them?

Please help :confused:

Any activity will reset the expiry date, so yes, a transfer in will do it and reset for another 3 years. There is no point chasing up for a flight in mid 2004

You family member will need at least 5000 points to transfer. to you.

If not, you could buy some from Qantas at a rate starting at $20 for 500. Or your could transfer some of yours out to a family member.

I would assume resetting you pin would be classed as activity (as it shows on your activity statement)

Great idea, but unfortunately I don't think it will work:

Frequent Flyer - About the Program - Terms & Conditions
"9.2.1 Except as otherwise provided in these Terms and Conditions, Points will not expire as long as the Member remains an Active Member. All Points held in a Frequent Flyer account of a non-Active Member will expire without notice at the end of the 36th consecutive month for which the Member has not earned Points or Status Credits or redeemed Points."

(my bolding).

(Oh, and Active member according to Qantas:
"'Active Member' at a point in time, means a Member who has earned or redeemed Points on their Membership account within the previous consecutive 36 whole month period from that point in time;" )

I do not know where you are or how many points you wish to save.

Assuming you are in Sydney. You can book a SYDNEY-NEWCASTLE flight for 8000 points creating activity and protecting the rest for another 3 years.
