I’ve been waiting on my usual January birthday offers as I need to book a hotel and would like to buy some wine. Seem to recall the email usually arrives early January but this year so far nothing 🙁. Are others still getting the birthday offer? Or a Covid casualty? Is it worth chasing up with them?

My birthday is in June and I've only received one offer from QFF - in 2019.

I don't think I got one during 2020. Having offers relevant for a full month is likely a challenge!

My partner got one earlier this week, four days after her birthday. She's WP.

It included the usual unique codes for $30 off Qantas Hotels and $25 off Qantas Wines. There's also a static code for 10% off the rewards store which was listed as BDAYJAN20 but should probably be BDAYJAN21.

Side note - I've received one every year since 2015, which was probably when I reached the lofty heights of Silver for the first time. Subject line always starts with "Happy birthday" and email comes from qantasff@loyalty.qantas.com. Sometimes they arrive on my birthday, sometimes they a few days late.

yes I got the offer during my birthday month last year probably the first one in a few years. Possibly due to lack of spend during 2020?

That's pretty poor on Qantas' part if you've retained P1 across consecutive years...

Do you use Qantas Hotels / Wine at all? Neither my partner or I do, so the vouchers could also be a thinly veiled customer acquisition strategy for those products...

I use wine every few months or have done during 2020 (ahem).... QF hotels? I have probably made a grand total of 3 bookings total with them so I guess the answer is "not really" :)

I am not fussed either way. I got the email and was more amused than excited given this was while Vic was in 2nd lockdown and I wasn't going anywhere, no hotel;s (local) open to book and no plans to do anything so... not terribly helpful..

I got one in Sept 2019, my husband in March 2020. I used the QF $30 hotel voucher to book cheap hotels in Turkey that we might have used if not for Covid. I didn't bother cancelling them and got points for both, hopefully helped a Turkish small hotelier a bit as well!

Nothing in Sept 2020.

I didn’t get a birthday treat last April...I must admit I didn’t realise until today! I have always loved the $30 hotel voucher.

Interesting l have never ever got a Bday treat and had been a member since July 1998..... l even changed energy company plus choose to pay the higher plan ti gain the extra points for travelling. The positive is that l have not lost points. Start of lock down, l lost all my points with an US booking agent l had accumenlated with, who l am determined to never ever use again, cheap fare or not! Now in process of sorting out what l want to do with my current QFF, in case l should lose them.....

Hello @Chuping, welcome to posting on AFF.

I too have never had a birthday offer either - joined in 1996, and been WP or P1 for at least 15 years all up. Interesting.
