Earn Qantas Points with American Express and Qantas Business Rewards

If you’re looking to earn piles of Qantas Points on business spend, joining the Qantas Business Rewards (QBR) program is a no-brainer.

Qantas’ loyalty program is designed to help small and medium-sized Australian businesses and ABN holders save on flights and earn more Qantas Points through everyday business purchases.

The program works together with Qantas Frequent Flyer, enabling points to be earned multiple times for the same trip or purchase. And, it’s made even sweeter when you add American Express into the mix.

Right now, there’s complimentary Qantas Business Rewards membership with the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card, in addition to 150,000 bonus Qantas Points and a $450 Qantas Flight Voucher for new Card Members.

The Card unlocks one of the highest, uncapped Qantas Points earn rates in Australia for your business, allowing you to maximise rewards on each dollar spent.

Read on to find out how you can maximise Qantas Points earn strategically by combining American Express and Qantas Business Rewards.

Receive complimentary Qantas Business Rewards membership

Joining Qantas Business Rewards normally costs $89.50, however it’s waived when you apply and are approved for the Amex Qantas Business Rewards Card.

And with so many opportunities to earn Qantas Points on the ground, even if you or your employees fly infrequently, it’s absolutely worth signing up.

Once you’ve amassed points within your Qantas Business Rewards account, you can transfer them out at a 1:1 rate to any Qantas Frequent Flyer account of your choice. You have the flexibility to send them to yourself, to an employee or a family member – it’s up to you.

‘Triple dip’ on Qantas Points earn for flights

When it comes to booking flights for yourself and your employees, the earning potential of the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card is unmatched.

Most of us would be happy to earn up to one point per $1 spent, but what if you could earn up to three times on eligible flights?

The American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card unlocks the ability to ‘triple dip’ on Qantas Points earn for eligible Qantas flights. You could earn:

  • 2 points per $1 spent on the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card: Qantas flights are categorised as Qantas Products and Services. So, Card Members who purchase a flight via Qantas Business Rewards using the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card earn 2 points per dollar.
  • Triple Qantas points via Qantas Business Rewards: By booking through an eligible channel, Qantas Business Rewards members earn up to an additional 40 points for every 100 points the flight would normally earn. The additional points are awarded at a multiplier of between 20% to 40% depending on the Qantas Business Rewards Membership level. The earn rate for American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card Members is tripled.
  • The standard Qantas Frequent Flyer points earned by the individual member: The traveller will earn the Qantas Points (and Status Credits for eligible flights) normally earned as a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.

Additionally, you could earn even more Qantas Points when combining this approach with special offers that Qantas Business Rewards and partners run from time to time.

That means you’re being rewarded three times for flying just once.

If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also save up to 8% on the base fares of eligible flights booked via Qantas Business Rewards.

Up to 7 Qantas Points per dollar can be earned with Qantas Wine plus enjoy free Premium Membership

Qantas Points aren't just earned on flights and hotels. The Qantas Wine online store offers quality wine, spirits, beer and gourmet food delivered directly to your door. For a limited time, Qantas Business Rewards members receive complimentary Qantas Wine Premium membership (normally valued at $99).

Members that have provided an individual Qantas Frequent Flyer number in their Qantas Business Rewards account before making a purchase will earn 2 Qantas Points per dollar spent for the business.

Plus, with Qantas Wine Premium membership, businesses can earn 3 points per $1 spent (normally 1 point per $1 spent without Qantas Wine Premium membership).

Finally, paying with the Amex Qantas Business Rewards Card unlocks 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent, as Qantas Wine is classified in the Qantas Products and Services spend category.

That all adds up to a huge 7 Qantas Points per $1 spent in the Qantas Wine online store.

Get a 20% discount and earn points twice with Qantas Club membership

The Amex Qantas Business Rewards Card provides two complimentary domestic Qantas Club Lounge passes each year, allowing Card Members to relax in comfort before flying.

The two Qantas Club Lounge Invitations are available each anniversary year, once Card Members make an eligible Qantas purchase on their American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card during that year.
