Guide to Qantas Status Credits Offers

Looking for more information about Qantas Status Credits Offers? Read on to find out more about these popular offers, and discover how you can leverage status credits to earn elite Qantas Frequent Flyer status in 2024.

While Qantas Status Credits Offers present a unique opportunity to fast track to a higher membership level, there are typically a number of restrictions levied to the promotion. Travellers should be aware that the following terms and conditions usually apply:

  • Qantas operated flights only. Qantas status credits offers apply to flights operated by Qantas only (with a QF flight number). This means that Qantas-ticketed flights on Jetstar or partner airlines like Emirates are off the table.
  • A specific booking and travel period. Promotions require travellers to register within the specified time period, and then travel in a second specified time period. Registration and/or travel outside the eligible time periods will render your journey non-qualifying.
  • Restrictions on status credit usage. If you’re planning a Qantas status run with a view to completing a status challenge or achieving a membership bonus reward – think again. Qantas has recently tightened up the usage of status credits earned through status credit promotions. They now don’t typically count towards Loyalty Bonus, Membership Bonus Reward or status challenge requirements.
  • Requalification period. Qantas states that status credits should be credited to your account up to eight weeks after your travel is completed. It’s important to keep this in mind if you have a restricted period of time to travel and obtain double status credits in order to retain or attain a new status tier.

Before you look to book your Qantas Status Credit Offers flight, be sure to carefully check the terms and conditions of the promotion.

What are Qantas Status Credits?

Qantas status credits are a completely separate currency from points. Essentially, they are a vehicle for moving up the membership ranks of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.

Status credits are used to measure flying activity on Qantas and partner airlines. When you complete an eligible flight, you earn a certain number of status credits. The number of Qantas status credits earned varies by the distance of the route flown. A discount economy flight between Sydney and Melbourne, for example, earns just 10 status credits, so you’d need to fly seventy sectors just to achieve Qantas Gold.

Can I earn double Status Credits by booking on other airlines?

No, Qantas double Status Credits or double points can only be earned when you fly on Qantas planes.

    The T&Cs are a little hard to understand. Are AirNorth, Alliance, Qantaslink operated by Sunstate considered partner airlines, or are they eligible for double status credits if they have a QF number.

  2. Avatar for Zack

    So annoyed that QF flights booked thru Qantas and operated on Emirates are not included in this promotion. The T&Cs on this point are a bit misleading. They should specifically articulate what they mean by partner airlines. IMAO if you book a QF flight through Qantas they should honour the status credits.

    Hi Adele

    If I register for double status credit and book within the eligibility period, but only pay the $25 holding fee will this booking also be eligible for he double status credits? Or the booking have to be paid in full between 23 and 28 March ?
    My booking due date is 21/4

    Thank you

  4. Avatar for Kyall

    Hey, I have just registered,
    Can I book the flights through any agent? or does it have to be done strictly via Qantas?

    1. Avatar for Adele

      Hi Kevin, no, you’ll need to first register for the offer and then make your bookings during the eligible booking period. If the bookings you already hold are flexible, and current pricing isn’t higher, it might be worth looking to cancel and then re-book?

  5. Avatar for ERT

    Readers might want to be careful here as neither ‘Status Support Credits’ nor any status credits earned during the ‘Double Status Credits’ promotion are eligible for Status Credits Rollover – it’s only the base status credits for actual flights that will be rolled over.

    I queried this with Qantas last week and received this response:

    “However, the Bonus Status Credits that you will earn from the Double Status Credits promotion are to be identified as BONUS and will NOT be counted towards the rollover. As advised from the terms of the Status Credits Rollover, “Status Credits provided by Qantas as a bonus, support or gift will not count towards the rollover.” It would only be the regular / original Status Credits earned will be counted towards the rollover. “

      Hi Melanie, yes, provided you register for the promo and book an eligible flight on an eligible route during the travel period, you are fine to book with a credit voucher.

  6. Avatar for Cathy

    Hi Adele, if I cancel international flights I already have booked (with a fee, but still think it will be worth it!) and then immediately re book them do I still get the double status credits offer? Also do you have any tips on the best points run and dates for this time around? Thanks !
