Qantas Cash customers new and old can skyrocket their frequent flyer haul on overseas transactions to an impressive three points per dollar spent under the airline’s latest promotion.
It works like this: load at least A$1,000 worth of foreign currency in one transaction by June 30 to pocket 2,000 bonus Qantas Points; at least A$2,500 worth of the same to grab 5,000 bonus Qantas Points or A$5,000+ in forex for a cool 10,000 bonus points.
When combined with the everyday Qantas Cash earning rate of one point per dollar on overseas spend, you’re ultimately looking at three points per dollar charged abroad or when using your card to shop online at a foreign website.
What’s more, as the chunk of bonus points are awarded when topping up your card rather than when you spend the money, you can load up before June 30 and use those funds after that date while still netting three points per dollar.
“Pre-paid travel cards really are handy when heading overseas because you don’t have to carry cash, but can access cash at ATMs around the globe,” said Ryan De Boer, Head of Qantas Cash.
“Plus, you can lock-in exchange rates before you travel so it gives more certainty to your holiday budgeting, and with Qantas Cash, there are no load, inactivity or monthly fees,” he added.
Qantas frequent flyers over the age of 18 can access Qantas Cash via the back of their existing Frequent Flyer membership card, while those aged 16 or 17 can also manually request a Qantas Cash card.
Bonus points aren’t awarded for funds loaded in Australian dollars – which continue to earn 0.5 Qantas Points per dollar spent – or for users who load funds before registering for the deal via the Qantas Cash website.
