Regarding recent public upgrade offer from qantas discovery to qantas ultimate, I wonder if anyone who did not receive this invitation has applied and got points yet. I was thinking of applying this upgrade get get 40k qantas points, however, when I logged in the request upgrade page, there was not mention of upgrade offer of 40k points anymore. It only mentioned below T&C:
Appreciate if anyone shares their experiences pls, thanks.

I assume this is the offer you're referring to - The American Express Qantas Ultimate Card®

The T&Cs on that page do refer to 40,000 bonus Qantas points for upgrading.

1. Bonus & Eligibility. Offer only available to existing American Express Card Members who apply online to upgrade to the American Express Qantas Ultimate Card by 30 November 2019, are approved, and spend $3,000 on their new Card in the first 3 months from the Card approval date. 40,000 bonus Qantas Points will be awarded to the eligible Card Member’s account 8-10 weeks after the spend criteria has been met. This offer is not applicable or valid in conjunction with any other advertised or promotional offer. Only select products are eligible to apply for an upgrade and we reserve the right to withdraw this offer if your account is not in good standing or we become aware of any adverse credit information.

I'd be careful. If you are eligible for an ultimate, you may be better off cancelling your existing card, waiting 18 months and then signing up to get 100 or 120k.
