Not a bad spend.

I am no where near that.

Mine is probably 20 or 30k of points and that would be all CC spend with a little bit of car hire.

The ability to earn large amounts of points without even sitting on an aircraft illustrates the division emerging between the so called loyalty scheme where Qantas sells points to retailers in return for filling otherwise empty seats (and reducing the earn rate on the travellers who buy cheap tickets) which has become a significant income stream for QF, and the true loyalty recognition they give through Status credits, which with the demise of MASA's have become harder for the Proletariat to earn.

I am about 500 short of LTG and Mrscove is about 1500 short based on our current bookings. Better start doing some MASAs to fix this is what I have been thinking seeing we are close enough.
Every 3 months I get the chance of x,xxx,xxx points to be made and who am I to disappoint the fiscal fiend.
I flinched when my son was offered a SYD-PER MASA one way at 50,000 points beyond Classic and thought heck he can fly in Classic J and have his Lifetime Qantas Club as his back up and keep his points.
