Targeted Qantas Double Status credit promotion

By andrewjason81 | May 08, 2019, 02:24 PM
Is anyone aware of the logic/rationale behind selecting some passengers for the DSC offer and not others? Thanks. It would be useful for ABT to ask Qantas this directly.

Not 100% sure BUT I have noticed that when I have logged onto my account and searched for flights and do this maybe a few times because I am genuinely interested in booking (but trying to work out best times/routes/prices etc), BUT still have not booked, then I will get an email with a special offer, be it bonus points, DSC, hotel sweetener deals. So perhaps that has something to do with it :)

Many people (including me) have seen this happen before.

You log in to QFF account, search for a flight a few time and try different date combinations and leave it at that. After a few days or may be the next day, chances of you seeing an email from Qantas offering DSC for that continent or nearby places are very high.

I have seen this happen quite a few times for me and others who observed this behaviour have documented the same in the link below :


I started this community discussion when I thought what I received was a direct (or not so indirect) result of my searching for flights on a specific route

Ha! Literally within minutes of posting my comment, I received this from QF in an email:

Bingo!! I haven't received mine yet. I was searching for some random flights to do a status run, let's see if I'm lucky to receive DSC email from Qantas

pretty sure these are FF points offers, not Status Credit offers....

I received the DSC offer in April but not this one. I agree with most/all above on who targeted emails are sent to but it doesn't seem to be a simple formula. April nowhere near my anniversary date, plenty of flights already booked and fly anywhere (I usually fly in the Asia/Pacific region). All the being said, it looks like Qantas is certainly drilling down customer searches/travel etc when targeting members. DSC offers do provide an incentive to book flights earlier and this would provide Qantas cash upfront rather than down the line. Whatever the reason, DSC offers are certainly attractive when climbing the greasy Platinum pole.

Yes but my post was about the link between flight searches and some type of promotional offer. I posted given the coincidence.

Considering the last open to all DSC offer is for flights through to the end of August, unless QF is very desperate for bookings it seems doubtful they’d do an open to all offer until at least next month sometime, but QF does love to surprise with the timing.

Like yesterday when I received a double status credit offer for Qantas operated international flights. These are to be booked before 22 May for travel between 23 May 2019 and 9 May 2020
