Do late QF status credits count towards the following years total

By ABT1965 | Dec 24, 2018, 06:05 AM
Hi,
I am coming to the end of my status credits year, the end of Jan 2019. I have reached gold. I am currently in the UK. My return business class flights are on Jan 10th. My question: if I do not register my QFF number against these flights in Jan, then manually claim them retrospectively in Feb 2019, will these status credits count towards my SC tally for my 2019 membership year? Apologies if this has been covered in one of your many posts.
Thanks.

I seems safer to register your FF number now or when you check in in Jan 10.

Reckon Qantas will catch up on that eventually and allocate them to the correct date when the flights happened, even if they don’t at first.

I'm pretty sure they will be manually entered on the date actually travelled, and then automatically expired.

I think that moa999 is right. In fact im sure that it says so somewhere on their site

The system will pick it up automatically and assign them to Jan travel even if you don’t advise them until Feb, it even happens with credits allocated against a codeshare which may not appear for many weeks, the actual flight date is listed and it doesn’t count toward your new year credits.

It won't work. They will be credited at date of travelling. Good idea though

A very creative approach! I'd have thought they would be applied retrospectively. However, one thing which does work and has been done by some friends of mine is to delay claiming the 50 status credit loyalty bonus – assuming you have earned the bonus and your membership year begins within three months of the bonus being triggered (because you have three months in which to decide if you want your loyalty bonus to be made in points or status credits). For example, if you earned the loyalty bonus in December 2018 you can claim it in February 2019, which means those 50 status credits will fall into your new membership year.

My membership year ends at the end of March 2019 and I will be flying on April 1 from Melbourne to London via Perth with Qantas and that same day from London to Barcelona with BA, all in business class. Both flights were booked and paid for during the double status promotion. Return flights from Budapest to Melbourne via London and Perth will occur six weeks later. It will be very interesting to see what status points are credited to my account....gold level or a very disappointed Qantas supporter. Any one who has experienced this, care to comment?

On that note, would be good if QF allowed some sort of status credit carry-over. I had well and truly enough to renew platinum last year, but will likely struggle this year. Would be good of some of those couple of hundred surplus credits which disappeared on the membership anniversary could be rolled over to this year...
