Triple those Status Credits with Qatar

Triple those Status Credits with Qatar

After travelling recently to Italy with them – Qatar is my new favourite international long-haul business class airline.

Aircraft, staff, service, lounge, everything I loved, and that was without even travelling in QSuites.

Qatar are running a ‘Triple Qpoints‘ promotion through until the end of October – so you will need to be quick.

Qpoints are Qatar’s equivalent of status credits, so this is a quick way to advance your status on Oneworld airlines, so that includes Qantas.

In Qatar Airlines Privilege Club – the status levels (Burgandy, Silver, Gold and Platinum) match with Qantas Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, with the equivalent Oneworld Status being: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.

One Trip triple-pike-with-tuck to Platinum

If you use this promotion correctly, one trip in business could take you straight to Platinum/Emerald:

  • Sydney to London in Business (value/flexi fare) would earn you 246/272 Qpoints, which under the promotion triples to 738/816 – which would mean you romp in over the qualifying 600 Qponts for Platinum under the Privilege Club rules.

If you’re a bit of a cheapskate like me, then if the low Promo or Business Saver fares are available, you could still achieve Gold/Sapphire status. And if you are a little creative, you could credit a few more Qantas or other Oneworld flights to Qatar Privilege Club to get to the magic 600 Qpoints for Platinum/Emerald.

If you want to do it properly, you can travel in QSuites on the 777-300ER which does that side-hop between Sydney and Canberra, or (in my opinion) the better aircraft is the A380 straight out of Sydney – but without QSuites.

Remember to book before 31 October for travel up to 30 April, 2019, and sign up for a Qatar Privilege Club account, register for the Triple Qpoints offer, which will be shown to you under ‘My Offers’.
