Booked 2 PE flights from SYD - HKG on 19th using a voucher that was purchased last year. As yet it has not been ticketed, so rang today to see if there was a problem.

Asked if the double points promotion would apply to this booking as I was thinking at this stage maybe it could be changed if necessary. I was assured by the lady I was speaking with that double points would apply.

To confirm she also rang the service centre and they also confirmed that double points would apply. Guess I will have to wait till March to see if they are correct !!

I've done everyone on here a big favour and spoken to QF Toaster Production Control who have now increased production by 73% to cater for all the new points which will go towards toasters.

Whilst on the phone he seemed genuinely concerned that his toasters may have been enhanced, but was calmed by the fact that this new range of Marc Newson inspired, Neil Perry toasters are in fact in high demand.

You can thank me all later ;)

Thanks. I'm also in the market for a new kettle.

BTW I saw someone who looks a lot like you on TV on Sunday morning ReLoad ;)

That was my evil twin brother, I'm just glad I wasn't on crimestoppers for a change ;P

As for the Kettle, unfortunately they have been enhanced, the only ones on offer are the ones the pulled out of the ex BA 767s complete with spontaneous brown goo creation option.

So it is targeted then? you either get double qf pt +/- 50% sc? would SC be the same if doing BNE to LAX to JFK (107) or BNE to SYD to JFK (107)? because technically its aus to east coast usa.

I got double points offer, no bonus SC. Question....buy a new voucher now ($50), then use later ( ie after 28 July) to buy a flight within the offer period...will this attract bonus points?

I think not.

Voucher is not a confirmed booking so if not used before 28 Jul it remains still a voucher.

That's my understanding of how vouchers work.

One more thing:

I took a screen capture of the offer / just in case !

Flights in June 2015 which is a long time away. CSRs may be clueless at that time.

Using vouchers is tricky.

In theory the date when the voucher was created is used but one can also argue the date the actual flights were booked is the correct date.

If possible I would book the flights before 28 July when the current sale ends.

This is the first time in nearly 20 years as a QFF I have been offered double points, just after they have cut the minimum points earn. Bizarre.

Do you have a confirmation email registering for promotion?

I would think that confirmation email should suffice in the event of a dispute. I've saved mine.

The confirmation email did not have the T & C at all, only 'you have been registered'.

Makes sense - the doubling of points after the status bonus has been added is unusual, normally such is on base points.

I can see AFFers still drooling over Everyday Rewards, Epiqure and Aquire so to me this is a no brainer.

LOL. Dont forget the CC bonuses......

The ANZ thread is going gang busters. Even got me motivated to grab 100,000 QFFP :D

I don't recall the T&Cs appearing in previous promotion confirmation emails.

I would grab the credit card signon bonuses as well if I wasn't up to my ears in credit cards already.

Can't be too greedy. ;)
