From time to time, Qantas release a double points promotion that is open to the public. Currently, there is no Qantas double points promotion open to the public. However, read on to find out what you can expect from these popular promotions (and sign up to our Newsletter to be the first to hear about the next one!)

How does a Qantas double points promotion work?

Qantas releases double points promotions from time to time. These promotions help travellers to speed up their points earn, fast tracking their way to flights, upgrades and more with Qantas Frequent Flyer points.

Some double points offers are open to the public, while others are targetted. Double points promotions are usually valid on selected Qantas, Jetstar and Emirates operated flight bookings (with a QF flight number). However, sometimes flights are restricted solely to Qantas metal – so it pays to read the terms and conditions carefully.qantas status run

Who can register for a double Qantas points promotion?

Registering for a Qantas double points promotion is easy – but you’ll need to be a Qantas Frequent Flyer member first. While Qantas Frequent Flyer normally costs $89.50 for Australian residents, it is currently possible to sign up for free. You can join now without paying a cent here.

When did the last public Qantas double points promotion take place?

The previous public Qantas double points offer ran until 7 May 2018. The offer was made available on the Qantas website to the public. The eligible routes for the previous Qantas double points offer were:

  • Qantas operated international flights with a QF flight number between Australia and New Zealand, Bangkok, London or Singapore, and
  • Emirates operated international flights with a QF flight number between Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa or the UK.

To take advantage of the Qantas double points offer, travellers needed to register here and book an Eligible Flight between 12.01am (AEST) 4 May and 11.59pm (AEST) 7 May 2018. Eligible travel dates were 21 May 2018 to 31 March 2019.

There were a number of other restrictions for the promotion, which were set out in the offer terms and conditions.

When do double Qantas points generally credit to a Qantas Frequent Flyer account?

The time it takes for double Qantas points to credit can vary from promotion to promotion. Qatas undertook points earned as the result of the most recent Qantas double points promotion to credit within 6 weeks after completion of travel.

If you are concerned about the time it has taken for bonus or double points to appear, we’d encourage you to wait the full length of time stipulated in the terms and conditions before calling the Qantas call centre to chase.

Does Qantas run any other similar promotions?

Yes, along with double points promotions, Qantas sometimes runs double status credit promotions which help Qantas Frequent Flyer members to fast track their way to Qantas Silver, Gold, Platinum and Platinum One status.

While we used to only see a Qantas double status credit promotion once a year, recently, these offers have been released more frequently. You can find out all about the most recent Qantas double status credit promotion here. Our tips on maximising value from a Qantas status run can be found here.

I’ve got large number of Qantas points – how should I spend them?

If you’re sitting on a stack of Qantas points that you’ve earned through a double points promotion, you’re spoiled for choices on how to use them. From Qantas business class and Emirates first class flights, to booking hotels and shopping at the Qantas Store – the sky is quite literally the limit.

I love to travel the world in comfort and style. In fact, there’s really nothing I love more than sitting in a plane at 36,000 feet, a glass of Krug in hand, watching the clouds go by.
