How much is a QP pass 'worth'?

Being a slow morning, I decided to look up Qantas Club (QP) passes on eBay. There are a lot of them on sale - all of these have expiry dates on them (and appear 100% legit, with holograms and such), and generally the closer they are to expiry, the less they are being bid for.

They're going for anything between AUD 20 and AUD 75 each, but I was wondering what the good members of AusBT think a QP invitation is worth? Would you even consider paying for one?

They're worth what people are willing to pay for them, with the difficulty that buyers and sellers have difficulty connecting.

What I'm personally willing to pay for one depends on the exact circumstances. I don't have QF status but sometimes fly QF anyway, so I'm a potential buyer. What I'm willing to pay on any given day depends on how long I have to wait and whether it's beer o'clock yet. For $20 I'd be pretty easy to convince, but for $75 you can forget it.

Indeed! Buyers and sellers will always differ!

I'd be pretty easy to convince up to about $30; beyond that, the sell gets harder. Thankfully these options exist on eBay, but I concede the 'value' varies with the visit.

Not that I have to (being lifetime Gold),

but domestically it might be worth $20 - a few drinks and food before flight.

however internationally I might pay $100 to get myself a shower during a transit for example.

Hmm - internationally, e.g. at SIN or HKG, I was thinking an upper limit of $35 or so, depending on how long I was there. I would agree that if you were aiming to get a shower, relax and have a meal and a few drinks, it's worth more than a quick shovel and scull domestically.

Thanks for weighing in!

The biggest variation I see in those prices is the expiry date on the card...
The more time you have to use them, the more they are going to cost.

Indeed. It's a game to get the right ones, I'd think.
