Whatever you do, don't book a Qantas flight today until you've signed up for this fantastic promo!
Get ready to fast-track your way to Qantas Gold, Platinum or even Platinum One status: for a limited time, Qantas frequent flyers can earn a double serve of status credits on domestic and international flights.
Qantas usually restricts bonus status credit promos to a selected set of frequent flyers, but this one's wide open to everybody.
As a result, your next Qantas flight could see you step up to the next tier of the Qantas Frequent Flyer status ladder or lock in your current shiny status for another year (or to catapult to the extra perks of 'Platinum Plus' tiers such as free partner Gold membership).
For example, flying from Sydney up to to Singapore or Hong Kong you'll pocket at least 240 status credits each way in business class; a quick trip across the pond to Auckland is worth at least 160 status credits in business class; and even your regular Sydney-Melbourne shuttle will yield 80 status credits on a return flexible economy ticket.
Going the long haul to London? Travelling in business class from Sydney or Melbourne to London, you'll pocket 560 status credits each way – so the return trip haul of 1,120 status credits can put you on the threshold of Platinum from a standing start.
There are a few caveats, so here's the skinny.
Register first: You need to register for this promo before you book your flights – click here to go straight to the promo sign-up page.
Book fast: To take advantage of this double status credits deal you have to book on an eligible flight (see below) through to 11.59pm (AEST) on Wednesday May 4, 2016. Existing bookings don't count: only new bookings are eligible.
Travel to April 2017: while there's a limited window for booking your double status credit flights, the actual travel dates stretch through to April 16th, 2017 – perfect for planning ahead when it comes to both business trips and holidays.
Valid flights: The deal covers all Qantas domestic and international flights, as well as American Airlines' Sydney-Los Angeles and Auckland-Los Angeles flights booked under their respective Qantas QF numbers (QF309/3310 and QF3225/QF3226) – but not Emirates codeshares.
