    I’m pleased to announce that yet another month has passed and I have not won a single thing from QANTAS. My exemplary record has not been hurt by the unnecessary winning of any of the competitions I enter into on a monthly basis on the QANTAS website. Thanks!

    Has anyone won anything? Does anyone know anyone who has won anything?

    Just be thankful you can enter the QF competitions.

    I got my 500pt April OLCI bonus this week :D , but no Lenovo... :-|

    On a different vein, I won a trip for two to Ireland in a Jamison Irish Whisky QP promotion back in 1998. (Oh memories ... the hospitality of the Irish :D :cool: :shock: )

    When did you fly in April to get your OLCI 500 pts. I called this week and was told not yet, perhaps a few weeks.

    Got my 500 bonus points last week for a trip 8th April, and a fews years ago won a $10K QF voucher for making an award booking, only made one during the period so it was just plain lucky. Since them I have missed out on the cars and notebooks, not to worry.

    I thought the laptops weren't due to be drawn until late next week (16th or so comes to mind). Anyone remember when it's supposed to be drawn?

    Never won any competitions.

    On the note of points bonuses though, I received double points between mid-November last year and the end of February on Domestic services. (ie. BNE-SYD : 2000 points per sector) Suited me really well as that's when I had lots of flying. :D

    There is a light at the end of the competition tunnel - I think it is an oncoming train...

    It would seem nobody wins

    I don't even bother with QF competitions ; too many entrants for too few prizes makes it, imo, not worth the effort of participating
