Nothing will post until after the targeted transfer bonus period is over. There is no way to know if it will stack until after.

Last time it posted within the transfer bonus period. The transfer bonus period has nothing to do with it.

I think it's safe to assume that this time there is only the bonus originating from Amex. Qantas is not adding another 20% on top of that.

My theory is that last time they were a new Amex transfer partner and were unaware at first that the bonus was given by Amex already so they did it in their end too. And then even after they did find out they just gave it to everyone to avoid a customer service fiasco. This time they already know the points are being transferred with 20% already added so they're not adding anything else on top of that which is totally in their right.

I Thought the exact same point
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

There is a targeted 15-25% bonus going on now for any transfers within the bonus transfer period.  So Citi Marriott Capital One transfers all get bonuses depending on <>500k. Thisbis not the same as what happened in June. The only question here is will we get on top of Amex 20% and I believe the answer is yes...after the bonus period is over. Prove me wrong...

It was very specific targeting this time. I have 5 accounts all transferred into previously and only 1 was targeted

This thread as stated in the title is specifically about 20% bonus for transfers from AMEX. Which is the exact same as in June when Amex gave 20% and then Qantas added ANOTHER 20% on top of that within a few days.

Citi, Marriott, Capital One transfers may and most likely will get their transfer bonuses but that's irrelevant here. Amex transfers will get the 20% from Amex end, but will not get another 20% added by Qantas as happened in June.

Ummm...I started the thread... :-X

Were you targeted for the additional transfer bonus? It did not limit it to all transfers accept American Express unless you have evidence of what you're saying I stand behind what I wrote

Sorry about that. Didn't mean it to come across that way. I was just following the train of thought with Amex in particular.  People are confusing what happened last time with the public 20% Amex offer and what you are referring to which is the 15% or 25% bonus for transfers from anywhere.

So just to clarify I was referring to the fact that specifically for the 20% from Amex, this time Qantas doesn't seem like they will be adding another 20% (like they did last time).

As for the 15% or 25% targeted email offer which they said will be added after 11/30, yes, I agree that it should apply to Amex transfers too.

Everyone got the 20% transfer from Amex email from Qantas. Did you get a separate email from Qantas that offered you 20% for total transfers over 500k from anywhere?

Targeted email offer was 25% over 500k (15% for less)

It was actually different from last time which gave each transfer a separate bonus. This time it consolidated the transfers. I made two transfers. One was for 604,800 and one was for 210,00. Total of 814,800.
What was the total original transfer and what was each bonus?

Transferred 500 MR got 600+90 so 15% on top of the 20% Amex bonus
