I think I've muffed that up somewhere. No doubt someone more mathematically minded can provide the correct answer.

What is a Points Destination? And what personal information do you have to sacrifise for the chance of winning?

It seems all you have to do is say what you'd like to do with any won points, and that's it (you can also shop or dine at bonus partners for extra chances to win). I've copied the various T&C paragraphs for your questions.

To enter, Eligible Entrants must, during the Promotion Period visit qantaspoints.com/destination and submit a ‘Points Destination’ following the instructions on site. Eligible Entrants can gain further entries by earning Qantas Points with Qantas Frequent Flyer partners during the Promotion Period (one additional entry per partner) 

Entry details remain the property of the Promoter. The name and photograph of the winner may be used for promotional purposes by the Promoter, unless the winner otherwise notifies the Promoter at the time of accepting the prize. Entrants consent to the Promoter using personal information provided in connection with this promotion for the purposes of facilitating the conduct of the promotion and awarding any prizes (including to third parties involved in the promotion and any applicable statutory authorities) and to conduct marketing activities.

What's "notional value"? I know what the word means but...........This generation has successfully spun the spin off the planet.

Just a guideline as to what Qantas thinks it's own points are worth. Depending on how you use your points value can vary greatly. It's more a measure of interest rather than any hard and fast benchmark.

It happens Jack, that's why I thought it worth popping on AusBT so all us frequent flyer hounds were given the heads-up, even if their personal email invite is out tripping in the Internet somewhere.

Gippsflyer: thanks, we got a heads-up on this from QF and were going to run something up on Monday, for exactly the same reasons you've mentioned :)

Another rubbish campaign from Qantas - many destinations where Qantas flys imposible to select. Bangkok or Honkong for example.

They're valuing them at $0.007 i.e less than a cent. Surprising as you can get significantly higher on business upgrades etc. This is about what gift cards sit at in terms of redemption rate.
