Yes I can read but your OP suggested you might have changed your flight dates had you known about the sale.
I didn't say that i'd change my flight dates, but had I known about the SC bonus coming the next day, yes I would have waited and booked a day later to get the SC bonus.

All good.

I'll keep an eye on the Airfare and if it drops while this promotion is running I'll re-book.

Mrs Pineapple’s endless searches for J flights BNE-LHR finally yielded an email that would yield double nothing.

You recently searched for a flight from Brisbane to London. So we thought you might be interested in this fare of just $2156 Economy Return*.
:rolleyes:

Just for fun we priced an itinerary on her preferred dates. The best QF fare, via SIN, was $1,376, on a sale. The email offered fare appeared to be a saver, which sort of matches the fare bucket on her last booking, and others previously, so it appears to have correctly picked her as someone who tends to opt for upgradable fares. But not as someone who usually plumps for Y+ or J on long haul.

Looks like a data mining partial success, but offers of relatively high fares on price alone rank impressively on the #MarketingFail scale.

With some people reporting that they've received offers, I wonder if that's it. A batch of emails were sent this morning and no more. If that's the case, it appears to be a very narrowly targeted offer judging by the small number of responses on this thread.

yup.... seems very, very targeted. I chat to and work with a lot of FF, most of which are not active on forums and none of them, nor their network reported getting the email. I guess the algoritm is anyones guess? I'm only 2 months into my 6th P1 year and this would be the longest period in ages that I have not registered for a general DSC promo. (I've never received a targeted one :( ). Without DSC and based on my mostly Y class travel, I'll be cutting it fine for P1 next year (need a "First World Problem" emoj! )

I wouldn't be suprised to see VA push out a general DSC promo in the next week to try & go one-up on the RedRoo - I think last one was 6 months ago.

Current Platinum (LT Gold) with a July renewal date sitting on 725 SC for this year to date and 475 to go with 10 bookings including an international one that should mean every flying discount economy I re-qualify.

I got a call last week apologising for recent delays and cancellations and indicting that to make up for that I would be sent a double SC offer this week - which I received Monday. They also asked for general QF feedback, how they could improve etc etc which all sounded like it went in one ear and out the other.

Did anybody else who received the double SC email get a call beforehand?

Unfortunately my travel for the second half of 2020, when I will need double SCs is not going to be organised in time to book this year, so I will get little value out of it :(

So nobody else got a call beforehand?

If I do end up booking the U.S. trip that I have in the back of my mind the outbound legs are on the 1st of February - I'm already expecting that some wag at QF will send me a DSC offer on the 1st of Feb:rolleyes:

Interesting, I'm in a similar situation. Going into 5th year of P1. My travel plans next year will be lighter than usual and it will be tight to requalify without a DSC.

Without a DSC offer I'll probably go, and easily make, SQ PPS club or PPS solitaire as there's no incentive to go up and beyond WP. That's lost revenue for QF!

Has anyone’s double SC posted? My work trip on the 5th hasn’t posted yet. Used to come through within the week.
