The ba5tards expired my points - I can reinstate them for 0.025 per point but am not sure it is worth it. Especially as the value of the discount might be less than the reinstate cost.
How much is 10,000 points (for example) worth when applied to points + pay please?
Many thanks

Just checked - $62.

10000 pts can also get you a o/w upgrade on MEL/SYD, or a o/w redemption flight in economy (plus taxes).

Actually this is the first time I've seen QF want money to reinstate expired points. Previous reports have all been along the lines of an "earn X points in Y months" type challenge.

Isn’t he talking about Hilton or is it in the wrong thread

I'm talking about Hilton Honours points - hence the post in the Hilton thread.....
Sorry about the confusion!

Oops - I need to read titles more carefully! I'm not a hotel points person :rolleyes:.

Got me too! Shows how much P+P is associated with QF. Hopefully my edited post is more useful than my original post, not much in it to be honest.

I value Honors points at a minimum of ½¢ each - with some redemption you can easily get ¾¢.

So, 10k Honors to me is worth AUD50-AUD75.
