Since there's a double status promotion starting tomorrow, I'm just wanting to know how the bonus works.

Only the additional SCs don’t count. In fact the system will credit the normal SC earn and the additional “double SCs” separately (in some cases it will take a month for the bonus to credit). Ie if you earnt 20SC with QF you’d reach 500 immediately (unlocking the loyalty bonus) and will eventually receive an additional 20 (which won’t contribute to bonuses, amongst other things).

HiIm chasing quick status credits only need about 100 before OCT.if i book QF: GC - ADL via MEL will i get the SC for GC-MEL and then MEL-ADL?also i want to book with Amex travel credit received with Amex Qantas CC?ThanksJay
You’ll get double of whatever the original routing would’ve netted you (so yes you would get double for each sector).
At this stage it looks like the only additional exemption is bookings through Commonwealth travel arrangements, as far as I know the Amex credit should work fine.

Where did you discover that there's a double status promotion commencing tomorrow. I too need a few points before end of September.
Can you share please.
It will be officially announced tomorrow, registrations will open simultaneously and it should run until next Tuesday.
so even through its a stop over and not separate booking the MEL section still counts instead of only the GC-ADL counting like a direct flight?

Unless the entire OOL-ADL is on a single flight number, you will receive separate points and SC's for OOL-MEL and MEL-ADL.

Damnit to hell - booked three trips this week!
Expect the usual year-ish long travel window

Confirming that Qantas has overnight unleashed a Double Status Credits promotion, running through to next Tuesday (August 14) for travel from 21 August 2018 through to 8 August 2019. A great opportunity, but quite a few caveats in the fine print – we've covered all the details at https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-double-status-credits-promotion-is-back-but-for-five-days-only

Sitting on 480SC currently, need 120 to retain gold by 31/08/2018. Bought flex ticks SYD-MEL for 26/08/2018 (20 each way.)

Can anyone tell me do you see the double status when booking or is that added later?
