Been a while since I got one of these. Have gone into the draw for a bar cart, and both ms sudoer and I will be filling up with 50L of premium unleaded at a BP this week for the 10SC :)

Thought it was odd that the bar cart competition T&C are only open to WPs over 21 years old though...
Possibly some state rule about alcohol being in a price that they had to raise it up? Who knows

Actually, the exclusion is E & O fares, not the whole red-e-deal family

So the classic book and pray you didn't get one of them, given you can't actually see what you're booked in. I hate it when they limit on fare class and then don't let you see what you are booking

Deleted mine. 😞
After you entered the comp? It was just a single click to enter. Not one of those tedious “Tell us in 25 words or less why…” ones..

Saw this this morning. Entered the comp, but other than the coat-hanging nothing else is really relevant to me.

- 'Platinum exclusive' Qantas Wine promo - spend $300 and use promo code "BONUS" by 31 May for 5000 extra QFF points

Best deal I've found to utilise this promo code is the Heirloom Shiraz case which, after Points Club Plus 10% discount, is $324 for 21k points. Comes to 1.54c per point with a free case.

Looks like you can get a case of the exact same wine delivered for $288 here: Heirloom McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

So you're buying 21K points for $36, which is $0.0017 per point — about the same as a standard credit card sign up.

It was 6 of the McLaren Vale and 6 of the Barossa, which I think is worth a little more?

In any case the mixed dozen is now sold out!

Oh, thanks for the heads up. I didn't even click on it, not wanting to craft my award-winning 25 words... :)
