Well done, cmon005. Can you clarify, were you given 2 offers. One months ago (if so, what were the conditions of that) and one being the 100,000 points to buy status?
keen to know as I'll probably be in a similar situation in 11 months.
I called them probably 3 months out and said due to certain circumstances I probably won't make it to 1200 and whether they could potentially renew me and if so what was the magic 'number' considering for at least 3 years of being WP exceeded the 1200 and in one year got 1600 SC's, I was given a 3 years average SC number and said as long as I could make it to this then I would be retained, I asked the person to note our conversation.
About 5 weeks before my platinum expiry I got a call about a trial where I would be retained for 120k points (that's right 120 not 100) I politely declined.
Come status review time, ie about a month before I was not automatically retained even though I had met the figure I was quoted months earlier.
When I called to enquire about this I was told that I had declined the points option and there is no other option available now. I asked them to investigate and look into the notes of what was offered to me months before. It was confirmed that a note was left and as such they would honour the offer and my WP was reinstated.
