Update (September 2021): This offer has been extended for a second time! Those participating in this Fast Track offer now have until 28 February 2022 to enjoy their Qantas Club benefits and earn 100 status credits, in order to earn Qantas Gold status.

Qantas Frequent Flyer is giving more time to members who took advantage of the Qantas Status Fast Track promotion in April 2021.

As an acknowledgement of the travel disruption caused by recent lockdowns and border closures across Australia, Qantas is extending the Status Fast Track challenge period for a second time.

All participating members will now have until 28 February 2022 (previously 30 September 2021) to enjoy complimentary Qantas Club access, as well as to earn the required 100 status credits to upgrade to Qantas Gold status for at least another year.

A notice on the Qantas website still references the first extension:

The Qantas Status Fast Track has been extended for all current Status Fast Track participants. They now have until 30 September 2021 to earn the required Status Credits to upgrade to Qantas Gold status.

But those participating in the Fast Track have been contacted by Qantas to be advised of the second extension until February 2022, as discussed on the Australian Frequent Flyer forum.

In further good news for anyone struggling to earn the 100 Qantas status credits required to complete the Status Fast Track challenge, BP has a new promotion. BP Rewards members with a linked Qantas Frequent Flyer account can earn 50 Qantas status credits by making at least five transactions of $50 or more at BP by 30 September 2021.

Qantas has confirmed that any status credits earned from this BP promotion will count towards this Qantas Status Fast Track offer. However, beware that offer terms & conditions say that it could take up to 8 weeks for the status credits to appear in your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Keep this in mind if you’re relying on those status credits posting to your account by 30 September.

Almost 20,000 people have applied for a Qantas status match since late 2020.
