What $ value do you put on each Status Point?

As the title says.

Mainly to work out if it's worth paying for a more expensive flight to get the Status Points.

(Sorry if it's been asked already!)

Any SCs that can be obtained for under $5 each is fair value, anything under $4 each is excellent value.

Apart from MASA's, $10/sc is par for the course, better than this is good value.

You would be lucky to get a SC point for under $10 wouldn't you??

$10? I certainly wouldn't be doing status runs at $10 :(. I agree with smit0847. I can recall getting around $2, but that's an exception rather than the rule.

PS....I can recall considerably less than $2.....but was a stuff up rather than the rule :mrgreen:

It is still easy to get SC's for under $5 each with travel in North America (even after June [although that with Qantas]).

I brought tickets MEL to PER in Fully Flex for 6.25 Status credits per $1 but that is on Double Status credits promotion - which will retain my Silver.

It's pretty easy to get $8-$10 per SC.

We are talking about Virgin here, I assume.

Just returned from HKG via SIN with Singapore Airlines. 200 SCs for a little under $1200.00 (< $6.00 per SC) and the 50% bonus for the Velocity points. Pretty happy with that.

I have the feeling they haven't realised this is the VA forum board ;)

Agree with Serfty.

There are many DL and VX status runs that will yield roughly $2 per status credit in the States. No different to AA status runs crediting to QF, but with different airlines and optimal routing which you then credit back to VA.

I would not ever chase status with Virgin on my own dime for anything above $3 per SC.

Due to my lovely promtion total of 200 status credits. This will retain my silver until jan 16 !!! But it is so easy to retain Silver. 95% of my travel is up to Sydney so I will be retaining for quite a while. I am fully self funded and do not travel enough for Gold
