New to Qantas Frequent Flyer? Free membership, 10,000 bonus points

By Chris Chamberlin, October 15 2014

Qantas is attracting newcomers to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program with an offer of free membership stacked on top of 10,000 bonus points for eligible cardholders.

Yes, anybody reading this on Australian Business Traveller is more than likely already earning Qantas Points on their business travel and day-to-day expenses – but chances are you have at least one friend or family member that isn’t yet on board with a frequent flyer scheme.

This is their chance to make a grand entrance without paying for the privilege, and if they earn at least 10,000 Qantas Points in the first three months of membership, Qantas will also kick in a bonus 10,000 points as a welcome gift.

Those first 10,000 points can be amassed from flights taken with Qantas and its web of partners including Emirates, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, and American Airlines, along with credit cards, Qantas Cash and any other partner in the program – be they in the air or on the ground.

And even if they don’t hit that five-figure sum, they’ll still get to keep their Frequent Flyer membership to continue earning points, with no ongoing fees to do so.

Just sign up online here with the FAMILYFREE promotion code to instantly receive your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number via email, with a membership card being posted out within 14 days.

Even better, a similar deal is extended to our friends across the pond in New Zealand – you'll find your free sign up deal here.

So they could sign up and earn the 10,000 Bankwest points and then get this bonus of another 10,000 points?

With the Qantas deal, you need to earn at least 10,000 points in the first three months of membership.

However, with Bankwest, you need to provide your Qantas Frequent Flyer number, deposit $2,000 each month for three months and then wait up to eight weeks for the points to hit, totalling five months – two months late for the Qantas promo.
