Accommodations via Qantas Frequent Programs
There are more than 188.000 accommodations worldwide available through the Qantas Frequent program, from homes posted on Airbnb to glamorous five-star hostels. Whatever your preferences and budget, you can collect Qantas Points when booking for accommodation.
For example, with both Qantas Hotels bookings and the partner rewards hotel program you can earn as much as 3 points per $1 spent. Alternatively, direct booking hotels that are part of the Qantas family can bring you points as well; just that in that case you need to show your Qantas membership card when you decide to check out. As far as Airbnb goes, you can earn 1 point per AUD 1 spent on the platform.
Sign a mobile contract plan with Vodafone
For this, you need to sign a contract with one of the MyMix Red Global mobile plans that are offered by Vodafone and earn somewhere from 6,000 to 20,000 Qantas points. The options are two years contract and choose any phone plan of $80, $100 and $120 or 12 months SIM only plan. The Qantas point you get mainly depends on the contract you sign.
Get yourself a Qantas prepaid debit card
The Qantas prepaid debit card not only will bring you a ton of points but also doubles as frequent flyer card. It will earn you 0.25 points per $1 spent in Australia and 1.5 points when you use it abroad. Also, it gives you the capability to shop in 11 currencies when traveling or buying online.
Earn Qantas points at restaurants
Every time you book a restaurant through the Qantas restaurants program you earn 100 points. Presently, there are well over 3,000 restaurants, cafes, and bars in Australia that are part of the program to choose from. The service offers not just booking online, but it comes with some cool features such as browsing the database by location and cuisine, shows average prices per diner, has user reviews, etc. To illustrate how many points, one could earn by using this service; if you eat out once a week and make the booking through it each time, you can count on around 5.000 points in a year.
Collect Qantas points when buying movie vouchers
If you are a movie buff, you will find this very helpful. The Qantas frequent flyer website offers to book for movie vouchers, and every time you do so, you get to earn 2 points per $1 spent. However, remember that the vouchers can be used only at participating cinemas in Australia, such as Event Cinemas, HOYTS, and many independent ones. The process is pretty simple and straightforward, log onto movies.qantaspoints.website, find local participating cinemas, select a movie you like and buy your voucher. Have in mind that there is a limit to how many vouchers you can buy in a 24 hours period. The limit is set to a maximum purchase of 10 vouchers in that time frame.
