I use family pooling to transfer my status credits and points to my partner as she does more travelling that me.
She is around 50 status credits shy of getting Platinum. However we are going to Asia in Premium Economy in December this year which should get over 300+ status credits.
My question is, will the additional status credits be wasted if she gets to Platinum? i.e. will Virgin simply apply the 50 status credits to her account to hit platinum, but the rest will be thrown away essentially?
I ask this because we were sure that when she hit Gold earlier this year, she should have hit it and be another 10 status credits in front, but she had that reset to 0.
Or was this an issue due to simple timing of the rolling status credit calendar?
If you manage to hit 1500 status credits then your wife can ‘gift’ you a gold membership. Might be worth thinking about?
