As I can’t find a landing page for these offers without using the link in an email I received these may well be targeted offers…..but considering I’ve never credited a flight to my Qantas account in my life I’m not sure why I’d be one of the lucky ones.

The mention of the double status credits only being available to “travel taken by the recipient of the original email” would also appear to indicate a high likelihood of this being targeted.

Still, if you’ve received this offer its a nice way to boost your chances of earning/retaining status as well as boosting you Qantas points balance quite nicely too.

Anyone else get this email? Is it targeted or can you guys find a regular landing page – let me know in the comments.


    • That makes me really wonder just how Qantas is targeting this promo – I have a US address, the last time I paid cash for a ticket on Qantas would have been at least 6 years ago and I’ve never credited s flight to my Qantas account…so what makes the sirline think that I’m worth targeting? It’s strange.
