Just got another Platinum email with an offer of up to 20% off flights for Platinum members, hereâs the full email:

Yes, I got the same. I do have a international flight to book - 15% off for First, sounded good, however the theory seemed not to match the reality.

I too looked at the offer this morning and found that on 5 x SYD - HNL - SYD there was no discount applied at all? Perhaps it is on selected routes only? very confusing.

Maybe only applies to fully flex tickets and not cheaper fares thus being still more expensive (unless you need full flex)?

Also, the keyword is "upto" 20% off. This would mean very few fares are at that discount and the rest would be discounted from 0-20%.

Me too. I logged in three days back to check out Heathrow-Brisbane return flights and noted the fares. When I got the Qantas Platinum email I went back online - nope. No discount at all despite my flights fitting the T&Cs. I got all excited too ....

I just tried this - it's mad! Clicked through from the link they sent to one browser (not the usual one) and it was $5888. And then logged in as a platinum: $6393 for the same flights, same fare class.
Why should I need to do this? they sent me an email stating that if I use my login I will get 15% off international return flights.

My understanding was that you need to call to book these flights at a discount and that they’re not available online.
Sadly that's not right either. Qantas in the email itself states

The terms actually outline there may be sale fares available that are cheaper than the discounted fare - seems a bit strange. Probably should’ve been more specific ie Discount on full flex or similar. Initially I was thinking this is a great way to reward loyal passengers, but seems like a waste of time...
Not so much a waste of time, more a matter of misleading and deceptive conduct. There are laws about this sort of thing.
