Whilst domestic legs don't get DSC you still get the standard SC for them, so it still is a good idea to fly indirect such as via SYD to DFW, yes.

I'd love an offer that does DSC for both Domestic and International. I'm hoping to book such a trip maybe for next year. If domestic legs won't get DSC then I'll have to re-evaluate what I do.

Nothing for me or my partner. Waiting to book Jan/Feb 2020. Hope they open the offer to all soon.

Got the email at 10:08 yesterday. Took advantage of two DSC offers this year (February's public offer and a targeted one).

I got this too, no one else in my circle did. Was surprised they did another DSC so soon (even if targeted).

Yes, I noticed this turned up, and I still got a few GVs sitting around unused with expected travel between now and August.....

Any decent European fares floating around for June-August or are we still being profit gouged by QF?

I got a targetted 50% offer earlier last week, but decided to not waste my time. I doubt I can justify the 500 SC's needed for WP without a DSC offer. Maybe that is why I didn't get a DSC offer.

I got the DSC offer email on Saturday, and just now, another offer of 50% SC for "QF marketed" flights!

Could someone who can make more sense of the calculators than I can please tell me how many SC's I can earn on the following flight -
ORD - ATW on a AAxxxx flight booked as part of a Qantas saver fare.

Cheers! Fingers crossed if all gets flights get processed into SC's then I should have Gold status before the LAX - MEL leg of my journey so that I can access the QF pub at LAX

We always get these emails the day AFTER we literally by an airfare :(

Just bought SYD to LAX and the next day we received this email. There's no point asking Qantas to give us the offer is there?

Sadly not. Is it viable to cancel and rebook the ticket?

Also, as a service to AFF members can you please advise us when you're going to buy a ticket, so we can wait for the DSC offer to be issued? :D

Made use of this offer, SYD-CHC, less than $3/SC :D

There must be another fare sale on top of the DSC offer.

Haven't had a targeted DSC offer in a long time. Is it normal not to receive an email confirming registration and just being redirected to a webpage saying "you are now registered"? I saved the webpage as a PDF just in case...
I got the same when I registered yesterday. In my experience you don't always receive a confirmation email for registering.

Did anyone who took advantage of the open DSC offer this past February get targeted? Wondering if you already availed yourself, then they won’t target you?
February double SC offer, recent double points offer, recent 50% SCs to PER and international.

Having some luck at the moment but can't use these offers.

My first time using a DSC promo, booked SYD-AKL business sale return for $940, 320 SC for under $3/SC which seems reasonable based on what I've read here. Hope I haven't messed something up as I would not have done this trip as business without this ...

I purchased a gift voucher this evening and the email arrived at 2122 hours. I then used it and the ticket arrived at 2134 hours. As noted elsewhere it is the MEL-AKL J sale and the leg out is on the last day of my QF year and the return is on the first day of my new QF year.

Finish off with WP and start a new year with DSCs. :cool:
