20% added auto today!
Same here! I guess the complaints helped. It's pretty obvious a manual adjustment. It shows for July 9th transfer.
Now we need LY to restore J awards....

The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude(:

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).

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

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.
