JUST IN | It’s back – Qantas Frequent Flyers once again have the choice of opting for double Qantas Points or Status Credits for all new flight bookings. You just have to make your choice in the Qantas App and book as many flights as you like for travel between 28 February 2024 and 14 February 2025.

Qantas tells us this is one of their most popular offers of the year, with one member booking 68 flights in 2023 and earning 12,300 Status Credits under the deal.

Our members tell us that double points and status credits is one of their favourite offers of the year. It helps fast track their progress to a higher status tier, which in turn unlocks additional benefits when they are travelling around the country or globe, from lounge access to increased baggage allowances.

Qantas Double Points or Status Credits – February 2024

Expiry: Book before 11:59pm AEDT, 27 February 2024

There’s not much time – you need to make a new Qantas flight booking before 11:59 pm AEDT on 27 February 2024. But if you do, you can choose between double Qantas Points or double Status Credits.

By all means, choose the points if you don’t think you’re going to increase status levels. You’ll get a 100% bonus on the base points earned (not on any status bonuses). For example, a Platinum Frequent Flyer will get the base points, plus a 100% status bonus and another 100% bonus through this offer for a total of triple points.

But if you’re trying to reach the next elite status tier up, this offer is the boost that you need.

Planning to splurge on Business Class tickets from Sydney to London return? You’d normally pocket 560 Status Credits. But with this offer, you’d earn 1,120 Status Credits – within spitting distance of Platinum status if starting from scratch!

And if your domestic travels have you aiming for Gold, your usual 160 Status Credits haul on a return Sydney-Perth Business Class booking just got elevated to 320 Status Credits.

How do I register for Double Status Credits?

Make sure to activate the offer before you start booking flights.
