Try logging in to the Australian website and then starting the booking from there. That worked for me last night. Please report back.

Wrong. Don't know how to to post a screenshot here.
But I requested a 61K MR tfr which as expected, came through as 73,200. Qantas added a transfer bonus of 14,640 on top of that.

Maybe this could explain the picture below. It would be 20% on my 2nd transfer of 600 which was 500 MR originally.

Seems like they are intentionally giving the 20% bonus too. Airlines don't tell usually when amex offers a bonus.
Might be a misunderstanding with Amex or a double bonus that makes it 44%.

Itís for targeted accounts. The glitch is that itís supposed to be 15% from qf and itís 20% instead (under 500k)

A. They aren't supposed to stack.
B. All accounts are getting it.
C. As you said, even under 500k is getting 20%

I don't see why Qantas would send out emails saying they would add points within 48 hours unless it was another promo.
But either way, it didn't take a trick to get this and it's posted here, which means it was all but guaranteed of going on other blogs within a day anyway.

Because you're getting 20% on the amex transfer bonus so based on the original amount of MR you end up with  44% more points
Title: Re: 20% bonus MR to QF through 6/30
Post by: ib3 on June 13, 2019, 04:44:07 PM
I have an interesting dp.
I transferred 500 points on 6/3 which was before amex was running the 20% promo and the transfer went through as 1:1
On June 11 I was awarded 20%.
I think this can confirm it's a separate promo as amex wouldn't give me the 20% extra since this was before the promo start date.

  • "I have been trying to transfer from amex to qantas for the last 3 days, but have been having issues. Has anyone else experienced this? They claim because my frequent flyer number is 7 digits rather than 10. Thoughts?"
  • Dan:I had the same problem and have been waiting. I opened a new Qantas account and was able to transfer right away.
  • "And then you just transferred all your other points over to your new one?"
  • Dan:You can contact any airline to merge multiple accounts for the same person.

the "48 hour" email isn't targeted? so wouldn't matter which account is being transferred into or whether they are merged before or after?

There are no YQ but there are airport taxes. If you refer to Dan's post I believe you are referring to USA-TLV then the amount you write makes sense.

Is there anything I can do about it now? What's the rest of the charge? 28.20 two ways and what else? I was charged 75.74 per passenger, with no breakdown.

They charge $9.60 on Economy. PE & J are more although they used to be $9.60 as well (hence the screenshot on DDMS).

I have an interesting dp.
I transferred 500 points on 6/3 which was before amex was running the 20% promo and the transfer went through as 1:1
On June 11 I was awarded 20%.
I think this can confirm it's a separate promo as amex wouldn't give me the 20% extra since this was before the promo start date.
i can confirm on this had the same thing

Why does that change anything?
At least in my understanding of the glitch POV that they are posting the same bonus for Amex.

Are other MR transfer bonuses coming from the airlines? Fairly certain it's always Amex that covers it.

I'm starting to think they are both running a bonus and they just didn't clarify it well enough in their email. Also don't know that they can see that Amex is adding a bonus.

Assuming Amex covers it, it still makes sense that they miscommunicated and they are both giving it...
And even if they were running a separate bonus by their terms it shouldn't stack, which they clarified further in this email.

I think they meant when there is 2 bonuses coming from within Qantas they won't stack, just didn't write the terms clearly enough.

In the event of multiple Bonus Points transfer offers in market for the same offer period, eligible Members will be provided with the highest Bonus Points offer. For example, if a Member was eligible to be awarded 20% Bonus Points on an eligible transfer of points under a Membership Rewards offer, and the Member was also eligible to receive 10% bonus points on transfer, under a Qantas offer, the higher of the two offers will apply and the Member would receive a 20% Bonus Points on their eligible Points transfer. Members are not eligible for more than one offer on one transfer.

Either they meant it and they just have no way to see its a bonus or they haven't yet realized it. Alternatively they meant if they're offering a bonus for points coming from MR as opposed to TYP or elsewhere.

Look at their T&C. Also, when you book for someone other than the AH - they ask the relationship and you can see who you are allowed to book for.
Obviously you can go against their T&C and book for someone not related and say it's your in-law but you might get an audit.

You can add anyone as an authorized user on your AMEX card, make a QF account in their name and then link that QF account to your MR account and transfer points almost immediately (it can take a day fir the AU to process).
That way you transfer the points to an account with the same name as the ticket you are booking and not bypassing any of the T&C's.

i just hung up the phone with quantas at first i was told that it could take up to 6 weeks for the bonus to post and i insisted that the rep contact the ff dept. to expedite the bonus so he said that he sent them a message requesting the bonus to be applied and he told me it can take 3 to 5 days untill i get a response and that there is no guarantee that i will receive it faster.

After doing a smaller transfer on the 26th and a larger one on the 29th (really the 28th here but the 29th in Australia) the second 20% still had not come through. I called the miles dept shortly after they opened on their Monday morning and was told the second 20% SHOULD be in the account by the end of the day. By this morning it was there. The hold times were long but they're extremely easy to deal with.

I called.
The Rep told me that the bonus has nothing to do with them and i should contact Amex....
I Huca'd and the next Rep explained to me that according to the T&C i could only get one bonus, so since i already got the bonus for the transfer on the 27th i cant get it for the transfer on the 25th.... he read to me the T&C, and i stopped him when he said 'limited to one offer per transfer' which means clearly that i should get the bonus on each transfer, He admitted that he made a mistake... and advised me that he is contacting the internal office and he will get back to me..
Did anyone have success to get the bonus manually added?

Called Qantas today.  Rep said she had to email a special department to look into it.

The 25th was most definitely a glitch as it's the only date being reported that didn't get the Qantas bonus.

Hopeful.

Qantas rep just confirmed for me that she's heard from several people about the 6/25-26 issue, and is waiting to hear from their Promotions department what to do for customers calling about their missing bonus points.  She gave me cause for optimism.

Dan, out of curiosity, can airlines arbitrarily treat frequent flyer customers differently without repercussions?

They're clueless... Or they're playing games. Plenty of people got bonuses for multiple transfers from the same card. I got a bonus for my second transfer from one card, but not the first. Promotions got caught with their pants down, and instead of taking the high road, they're telling everyone a different story.

It seems like the reps have no idea whats going on.. they all say a different reason..
I called.
The Rep told me that the bonus has nothing to do with them and i should contact Amex....
I Huca'd and the next Rep explained to me that according to the T&C i could only get one bonus, so since i already got the bonus for the transfer on the 27th i cant get it for the transfer on the 25th.... he read to me the T&C, and i stopped him when he said 'limited to one offer per transfer' which means clearly that i should get the bonus on each transfer, He admitted that he made a mistake... and advised me that he is contacting the internal office and he will get back to me..
Did anyone have success to get the bonus manually added?

It will be a shame if the 25th glitch and complaints cause a mass clawback. But it would be tough for them to justify that at this point.

They should thank you for the free publicity, treat everyone who transfered the same (meaning, take the high road), and hire better software engineers.

It's clearly a glitch that both Amex is sending it, and QF is adding it.

That'll be the end of that.
Your point?Well we don't even know if it's still alive now, but it certainly won't last too long.
Forget about the end, much bigger chance of a claw back now.

I think it's worth adding a clawback disclaimer to the post.

Why would they clearly write in the T&C that it wont stack?

"In the event of multiple Bonus Points transfer offers in market for the same offer period, eligible Members will be provided with the highest Bonus Points offer. For example, if a Member was eligible to be awarded 20% Bonus Points on an eligible transfer of points under a Membership Rewards offer, and the Member was also eligible to receive 10% bonus points on transfer, under a Qantas offer, the higher of the two offers will apply and the Member would receive a 20% Bonus Points on their eligible Points transfer. Members are not eligible for more than one offer on one transfer."

I am not complaining... I booked a few tickets with this bonus, plus a infant for $24... Thanks to @Dan

Long time lurker (and commenter on DDMS) first time poster on DDF.

I previously called regarding a transfer from the 28th to get them manually so I wouldn't lose the availability for the flights I wanted to book and it did not help, the points posted automatically at a later date.

I also transferred on the 30th showing as 7/1 and did not get the bonus either.  The original email states "Bonus Qantas Points will only be awarded for transfers of Membership Rewardsģ points to Qantas Points that take place between 12:00am MT 5 June and 11:59pm MT 30 June 2019." So it's not based on Aussie time, it's based on MT and I did it about 10 PM MT and should be eligible.

They followed up with an email requesting proof that the transfer was done on 6/30. I can screenshot the QF activity page, but would rather show them from Amex that it was transferred on 6/30. The only problem is, Amex shows minus the 20% so I'm nervous they may get confused and will argue that they already gave me the 20% because that is what it shows on their end.

They just responded to me around 10 minutes ago as follows:

"Thank you for contacting the Qantas Frequent Flyer Service Centre.

We apologise for the delayed response and we appreciate your patience on this matter.

As we've check your account, the reason why the %20 Bonus Qantas Points is not reflecting on your account after transferring xxxx Qantas Points from AMEX is that the transfer was made 1st July 2019, not 30th of June."

Me, without checking my account (or this thread!) immediately responded that it was 6/30 here which is 7/1 in Australia and attached my Amex screenshot. Only after that did I read the additional responses here and see that people had the points post so I checked my account and b"h mine did too! So I wrote a follow up email to disregard the previous one as points had posted.

They actually had excellent availability towards the early half of the promo period but as more and more people hopped on the bandwagon they got snatched up. I saw as many as 4 J seats available on a host of flights. Most are gone by now. It also depends on the time you're looking at as there are still plenty of days with availability (obviously not Sukkos or Pesach anymore).

They actually had excellent availability towards the early half of the promo period but as more and more people hopped on the bandwagon they got snatched up. I saw as many as 4 J seats available on a host of flights. Most are gone by now.

No, Elal changed the award chart today and they are revenue based. Nothing to do with the promo.

Ah, ok. I must have somehow missed that breaking news, sorry.

They did not go revenue based. They added the ability to book based on revenue prices for a terrible conversion rate ("pay with points").

Has anyone had success getting either bonus after 7/1?

(Sorry if this was previously addressed in the thread).

Which either? Amex gave their 20% up front if transfer was done prior to 6/30 midnight MT. The issue was with the 20% QF was giving and some people had difficulty with their's getting posted. If you transferred before deadline you should have ultimately gotten both, perhaps with a delay on the second one.

Thanks, that is what i meant in both. I got the bonuses and booked my flights but then paid 10k to change both legs. Now I'm trying to figure out how much to transfer back to have enough for a second ticket.
