I have 100 status points I need to accrue between now and 19/10/16 to retain Platinum. What is the best way to do this? I can do a Sydney/Bris for 2 and a Sydney/Auckland for 2, which all up will cost around $1,000 - but I really don’t have the time so will just be flying for the sake of it (but I do love flying) is it worth it, or should I be happy with Gold? Also, if I use points to book these flights, do I accrue status points.
I hope this is not a stupid question… Thank you.
