Would I be right in saying that 2 flights booked 4 days before the start period but with flights taken within the travel period are not eligible?
I had plenty of bookings for April, May and June that were booked before the offer arrived. Not one of them was eligible for double SCs.
When were gift vouchers purchased? Before promotion started or after?Well I finally got my double status credits today. I had to call and ask for them to be credited because I had booked all of my trips using gift vouchers.
Oh POO! Just realised why I'm not seeing double SC for my flight. I booked it using a voucher purchased last year. Doh! (that was stupid)
Any thoughts on the moral validity of calling to ask for the double SC. I had nothing booked until April and it was an extra flight. On the negative side, it still has a purchase date of December 2011. :?:
Sorry I was unclear. It was a gift voucher, which effectively creates a PNR at the time of purchase. I suspect it appears as an old booking. It's probably a bit out of the normal that it would be best to call and ask. Definite trick for young players.
So we purchased the vouchers around the same time and you got double SCs for your flights? I need to be able to convince QF just like you and medhead have done.
I forgot to post back on this thread. I called the previous week and got a lovely lady on the phone and I was able to convince her that it was indeed a new booking. She had to get approval from supervisor and called me back an hour or so later. SCs posted within a couple of days so I am happy now.As per what I just put in another thread, You take the line that they are new bookings because you used a voucher. I think I also said that I used the voucher partially because of the offer. They should be able to check and see that there were no flights booked on the voucher as originally issued.
I received this offer today:
"To help you retain your Platinum status we are offering Double Status credits^ on all eligible* Qantas flights when you register, book and travel between 3 Sep 2012 and 30 Nov 2012."
(My status year ends on 30 Nov, and I'm currently 320 SCs short.)
Just my luck: I booked some JASAs two days ago to take advantage of the double SC offer on SYD-OOL flights that I've also received. If I held off until today, I would have earned an extra 160 SCs on the legs that don't already qualify for the OOL offer.
While I don't need the extra SCs to renew WP for another year, they would have brought LTS that little bit closer.
3 September or 3 October?
