Four ways to earn Qantas Status Credits on the ground

Forget flying. This month you can rack up Qantas status credits fast, from the comfort of the couch.

Long restricted to revenue fares (and the occasional double status credit promotion) Qantas Status credits have always been a highly sought-after commodity. But with the current border restrictions, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it's harder than ever to earn them.

However, right now, Qantas is offering multiple ways to rack up status credits on the ground – getting you on your way to attaining or retaining elite frequent flyer status sooner. We've rounded up four ways to boost your Status Credit stash, below:

1. 50 bonus Status Credits with Qantas Health Insurance

Qantas Frequent Flyer members who purchase a new Qantas Health Insurance policy between 9 and 13 July 2021 will earn 50 bonus status credits and up to 140,000 bonus Qantas Points. Bonus status credits are awarded to the primary policyholder after the policy has been held for 60 continuous days.

To earn the maximum 140,000 bonus Qantas Points and 50 Status Credits, you must purchase a Gold Hospital and Top Extras cover for a Couple, Single Parent, or Family. This offer isn't available to customers with an existing health insurance policy issued by, or on behalf of nib. More information is available here.

2. 80 Qantas Status Credits with a new card

Earn 80 Qantas Status Credits with the Qantas Premier Platinum Card. How does it work? Apply by 04 August 2021 and spend $4,000 on eligible purchases within the first 3 months to earn 80,000 bonus Qantas Points. Plus, when you make an eligible purchase by 4 September 2021, you’ll also get 80 bonus Status Credits. Offer available to new cardholders only.

3. 50 Status Credits with BP

Join BP Rewards if you haven’t already, then fill up or shop five times by 30 September 2021 and spend a minimum of $50 each visit. 50 bonus Status Credits will be applied to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Read our guide to BP Rewards. Alternatively, access the offer here.

4. Up to 100 Status Credits with a new Qantas Club membership

Qantas has extended the sale of Qantas Club memberships for new joins. When you purchase a new one or two-year Qantas Club membership by 15 July 2021, you’ll receive 20% off, a waiver of the joining fee plus you’ll earn up to 100 Status Credits. This offer is valid for new members of the Qantas Club only. Find out more here.

Other Qantas Status Credit earning opportunities

In the midst of ongoing flight restrictions, Qantas has offered a range of limited-time status credit-earning opportunities with other program partners. Previous offers have included Qantas-linked credit cards, Red Energy, and the Woolworths Everyday Rewards program. We'll update this post as new bonus Status Credit offers are released.

For more opportunities to rack up Status Credits, bear in mind that Qantas Points Club unlocks the ability to earn status credits on Qantas Classic Reward flights. You can read our complete guide to Qantas Points Club here.
