Should I accept the offer (spend 80k Qantas points) to retain Qantas Gold status?

Qantas gave offer me the choice to pay 80k points to retain Gold - as I am not going to keep it.

I have a bit of travel up next year so I’m leaning towards accepting it.

Wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this decision?

The way I would look at this is, are you going to be flying extensively in the next 12 months with Qantas -> will you be utilising the benefits?

60k can get you one way business class from AU east coast to SIN as an example so you can compare whether a classic award redemption is worth more to you than status.

That is just my 2c. Not sure whether it is the best way.
