It’s that simple.

For those who don’t have access to the Qantas App, you can register your choice of reward on the Qantas website by selecting either Choose Double Status Credits or Choose Double Qantas Points.

Now, if you’re not a Qantas Frequent Flyer, you can sign up for their Classic Flight Rewards program. It is a great time to start thinking about your travel plans for the next year and re-evaluating what it will take to move to the next tier; Qantas Gold, Platinum or Platinum One status suits your goals. Of course, the one that is right for you will depend on the number of flights you make; in many cases, Gold is sufficient.

Why Double Qantas Points is a Better Choice For Some

Is the Qantas Double Points Credit promotion worth it? Absolutely.

Elevating your Qantas status unlocks exceptional perks beyond standard benefits like lounge access and priority services. From earning substantial bonuses on Qantas Points to securing prime seating and enjoying top-notch service during disruptions, higher status brings unparalleled advantages.

Unless you are close to moving to the next status tier in the short term, simply because you don’t book enough flights, you might decide to accrue the points to use on bookings at another time. In short, Qantas Points may be the better option for those just starting out with a low booking volume.

What makes Qantas Double Status Credits More Appealing?

What makes Qantas Double Status credits more appealing is the perks. The higher a member’s status could earn as much as a 100% bonus on Qantas Points on flights. Qantas status can also unlock the best seats on a flight and make them available before they are accessible to anyone determined by your position in the status hierarchy.

As you can imagine, the higher your status, the greater attention you will receive, such as faster service, so it makes sense that many Status members will want to take advantage of this offer and put themselves on the path to earning a higher status quicker.

To put this into perspective, depending on your status and the flight class purchase, just one international return flight is enough to bump your status to the next level.

Let’s take a closer look at some examples;

Consider this: a round-trip Qantas premium economy journey from Australia to London typically accrues between 280 and 300 Status Credits, depending on your booked fare type. However, during a Double Status Credits promotion, this figure skyrockets to 560-600 Status Credits. That’s ample to sustain Qantas Gold status independently or bring you within about 100 Status Credits of attaining it for the first time if you’re currently at the Silver level.

Similarly, booking a return Qantas business class flight from Australia to London during a Double Status Credits offer can yield between 1,120 and 1,240 status credits, contingent on your fare type—this catapults you into the realm of Qantas Platinum status, offering enhanced privileges and benefits.

Even if your travels are domestic, a return business class flight from Sydney to Melbourne or Brisbane during a double status credits promotion can accumulate at least 160 status credits, enriching your status level.

Qantas provides a convenient calculator to determine how many status credits earned per flight based on your chosen fare type to facilitate your planning—this tool enables you to make informed decisions to maximise your status benefits.

Define Your Status Credits Objective

Setting a target for your status credits is pivotal. Understanding the status credit requirements for each tier within the Qantas Frequent Flyer program provides you with a clear goal and enables you to strategise the number of flights needed to achieve it.

Let’s break it down:

Qantas Silver: Initiating your journey towards Silver status necessitates accumulating 300 status credits while maintaining it requires 250 status credits. While Silver may seem modest on paper, offering primarily two Qantas Club lounge invitations and access to ‘premium’ check-in counters is a starting point for every journey. Moreover, once attained, it becomes more manageable to sustain.

Qantas Gold: The coveted Gold status demands 700 status credits for attainment and 600 to retain it. Gold is often regarded as the pinnacle, providing lounge access across Qantas, Oneworld airlines, and Emirates, coupled with privileges like premium security lanes and priority boarding.

Qantas Platinum: Scaling the heights of Platinum status entails amassing 1,400 status credits, with a maintenance requirement of 1,200 status credits. This elite tier grants access to Qantas’ domestic business-class lounges and international first-class lounges across Qantas, Oneworld Airlines, and Emirates.

Qantas Platinum One: The pinnacle of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, Platinum One, requires a formidable 3,600 status credits for both attainment and retention, with 2,700 credits mandated on ‘Qantas marketed flights’. Beyond exclusive lounge access and priority services, Platinum One members enjoy perks like gifting Platinum status to a partner, exclusive invitations to the Qantas first-class lounge, and priority flight accommodations, ensuring unparalleled attention during disruptions.

By delineating your status credits goal, you pave the way for a tailored journey towards elevated privileges and unparalleled experiences within the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.
