    Just thought I would drop everyone a line as I have just attained Silver membership.

    It was a struggle for me as my company only fly me on discount economy and I have made Silver membership since my July anniversary date. If I keep going at this rate I may even just make Gold in time for the new year.

    Thanks for everyone's help with the questions I have raised over the last couple of months.

    Congrats :)

    I made silver for the first time this year too. Most of my flying is also in Discount Economy domestically + 1 domestic international flight. Silver doesn't really add much benefit, but its a good achievement - I remember getting excited opening the package from Qantas.

    In addition for most of my stints, the BFOD policy means I fly one way with Qantas and the other with Virgin...

    Anyhow, I have til 31st December to get another 60 SCs to make Gold, with a one-way discount economy ticket to Hong Kong, only earning me 30 SC' I'm unsure what I'll do to try and get to Gold.

    Congratulations on Silver and good luck for Gold.:D
    I noticed that I seemed to receive a little more attention and scored those NZ domestic J seats as soon as I hit silver, but I also joined a couple of forums that helped me along. I guess if you fly on routes that may not have many status flyers then silver may be a benefit.
