  1. Hi Adele
    I recently saw an offer for a Qantas Amex card with 50 bonus status credits plus some points.
    I now can’t seem to find it on either the Amex or Qantas websites.
    Is is still available? If so, how do I access it and what’s the expiry date?
    Thanks so much.
    I really enjoy your emails
    Rod

  2. Hi

    Just wanted to double check(simple person that I am) I currently hold an ANZ travellers rewards card with velocity. Am I still eligible for the bonus points if I sign up with qantas to the Anz black?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Andrew, yes, the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures Card is aligned to a different loyalty program, so this won’t preclude you from receiving the bonus points on the AZnZ a Frequent Flyer Black.

  3. I have around 500,000 Qantas points which I’ve been saving up for years. I’m wondering if I’m better to use these for upgrades or outright redemptions. I’ve heard upgrades are difficult to get nowdays, and would be interested in your thoughts.

    1. Hi Selina, if you don’t hold elite Qantas status, upgrades can be very difficult to achieve, particularly on popular routes. Qantas prioritises travellers based on status and ticket type, so it’s very much a ‘lottery’. Bear in mind also, that you still need to pay for a ticket outright to redeem your points in this way. Planning in advance to use your points on a classic award flight usually makes more sense. Best of luck finding your dream redemption!

  4. Great article. It never ceases to amaze me how some people complain about Qantas Points being useless, and low availability of award seats. I’ve redeemed two first class seats Melbourne to London with Qantas this year already, and will continue to aim for an earn of 500k points per year, mainly via cycling through card offers with large sign on bonuses and low annual fees.

  5. Great information thank you as I have so many points and really find it hard to ever book international travel with them.

    1. Thanks Stephen. We’ll have a post outlining the best award seats available to book with Qantas Points coming out shortly, so stay tuned!
