Lazy points question

OK, I've been out to dinner, had a few good reds and received a call over dinner asking me to head down to ADL next week.

Now, being very lazy and not looking this up myself, do I throw the points to QF or AA?

My AA plat expires at the end of the month, so I'm still Plat when I need to fly, I'm QCNB and the flights will be QF J class.

Someone else too - the red, not ADL that is. :D

BNE-ADL in J does earn decent QF SCs I believe, so if you were chasing QF status or lifetime Gold goals then I'd throw to QF. However if you're not, then I'd put it to the program where the redemption opportunites were best. For eg. if this flight would push your AA miles up to a bracket where you could claim a decent award redemption, then I'd bank to AA.

MetroAir, sounds like you didn't re-qualify Plat for 2006. So on 1 March, you'll drop to Gold. But for this flight, you continue to get Plat-based points (100% bonus) until 28 Feb. It goes without saying that you'll get class of service (business) bonus as well. This earning would be better than under your QF account.

Another reason you'd credit to one program in particular, is if you would get enough points to then have enough for an award.

Thanks Lindsay, yes I will probably put them to AA, I always just drop points into QF if I'm going for a ticket for Mrs MA, otherwise I leave them sitting in AMEX/Diners.
