Afternoon all,

Been hanging out for one of these for a while and this came across my desk today.

Virgin are running a promotion for Australian Government employees to match existing Qantas Frequent Flyer statuses. Just need to:
  1. Scan a copy of your current QFF membership card or QFF statement
  2. Compose an email from your government email address with 'GOVT - Status Match' and your Velocity number
  3. Send it and you are done.

Cheers!

I'm having a quiet chuckle at this given a large number of government employees have difficulty sending emails with attachments. Several others on this forum will be familiar with this conundrum.

But this should benefit many people. Unfortunately useless for me as I have already easily re-qualified Virgin Platinum.

What I find interesting is that I'm guessing a lot of govt departments do not allow collection of ff points and thus status. I certainly know of f&fs that aren't able to. . So interesting that va know otherwise and are targeting this market. Unless it's govt employees traveling on private trips that accumulate status.

Some govt employees can accrue Status (not usually points) through flying AFAIK

The match done a couple of years ago was 12months from the date your status was matched

Reported by Ausbt that the status match is only for federal govt, not state or local.
I guess it couldn't harm to try ?

The one below works as well for 10% off:I used it tonight and did not have to worry about a Qld Govt email address!!
I used GLV25 to book a J fare SYD - ADL this week for a 10% discount. I believe its valid until the end of June for travel until the end of this year.

I'd have a classic case for them that'd have them scratching their heads! A Federal Gov't representative but employed through a State Gov't.
