    I remember a free online program that you use to help you with a status run, you inputted how many you had to get and by when and it would search the cheapest way of doing this?

    Does anyone have the link handy?

    I think the cheapest and easiest way to get exactly 40 SC's is to fly Sydney- Canberra D class (Discount business) at $279 all in. (~$7/sc)

    You'll then have to find your own way back. Got any local friends? Good at Hitchiking?

    Best option I can find after that is to fly SYD - Newcastle in FlexiSaver at $339 all in return ($8.45/sc). You would have to stay overnight though...

    Another option would be to fly to Brisbane via the Red-e-deal special at $89/87. 4 trips can easily be done in a very long day (2 returns @ $8.80/sc) - or to add some variety (and increase the cost a little) SYD-BNE-SYD-MEL-SYD)


    The status chaser calculator you mentioned is here: http://www.harshbutfair.org/s2c2/

    No worries. Good luck with it. You may not find that they'll be the cheapest ways to get the S/c's but they would be extremely close. Personally I'd fly to Canberra on the D fare and get a red-e-deal back. Saves a lot of mucking around.

    One way I had to get SC's at good rates (Just over $6/sc) looks to have been tightened up recently, so I'm not impressed. Will have to find another way of breaking the $6/SC mark within Australia. :shock:

    Not sure if StevePer has updated the airfares in the Status chaser calculator so they may be a few months old.

    31/12. :? This date has already passed so too late to collect the 40 SC's.

    Correct me if I am wrong but these fares do not come into play until the 1st of Feb. Could be too late by then.

    Other option if needed by end if Jan is SYD-CNS-SYD at $384 for 40 SC's at $9.6/SC. Not a great return but OK for the purpose of collecting 40 SC's.
