Qatar Airways has a promotion for up to 50% award discount that requires buying a premium fare out from Doha between June 2 – 24 or July 6 – 31, 2013. You are then eligible for award discount of 10%, 25%, or 50% depending of the destination of the paid ticket.
The award ticket discount is valid for ticket issued between August 8 to September 30, 2013, for travel as far out as Qatar has released award inventory. This offer is valid only for Privilege Club members that has their account address in Qatar. You can access this offer on Qatar’s website here.
The terms and conditions doesn’t seem to require purchase of a return trip out from Doha to be eligible for the award discount and it is unclear, whether the subsequent award discount is valid only for one-way or also for round trip.
This is nice promotion for award discount if you are based in Doha and would have bought a premium ticket during the promotional period anyway. I just hope that these terms and conditions would be clearer when it comes to the award discount and whether it only applies for one way or also for a round trip.
