Qantas has launched a new promotion to get its Frequent Flyer program members to redeem their points for travel within Australia and New Zealand or trans-Tasman on their own and Jetstar flights.
Members can save 30% on economy and business class Classic Flight Rewards between July 1 – December 9, 2021, if booked by May 28.
You can access this offer on the Qantas website here.
Here are two examples of the points required:
There must be pent-up demand with Qantas frequent flyer program members that have not been able to use their points for almost a year for anything else than domestic and perhaps trans-Tasman flights unless they live outside.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
Classic Flight Rewards are subject to capacity controls, availability is limited, and some flights may not have any Classic Flight Rewards available. The Qantas Points required will be displayed during the booking process on qantas.com or Qantas Direct (fees may apply). Qantas Points and Status Credits may not be earned on Classic Flight Rewards. The 30% discount will be automatically applied to the Qantas Points required for Eligible Flights booked between 10am (AEST) 24 May 2021 and 11.59pm (AEST) 28 May 2021 for travel between 1 July 2021 and 9 December 2021. To receive the 30% discount, all flights in your Trip must be eligible Classic Flight Rewards booked in the same cabin. If you make any changes to the date and time of your Classic Flight Rewards booking, in order to be eligible to retain the 30% discount, any flight in your updated booking must be within the specified travel dates of this promotion. Eligible Classic Flight Rewards are (1) Qantas operated Australian domestic flights with a ‘QF’ flight number travelling on an Economy or Business Classic Flight Reward (2) Qantas operated flights with a ‘QF’ flight number between Australia and New Zealand, travelling on an Economy or Business Classic Flight Reward (3) Jetstar operated Australian domestic flights with a ‘JQ’ flight number, travelling on an Economy Classic Flight Reward (4) Jetstar operated flights with a ‘JQ’ flight number between Australia and New Zealand, travelling on an Economy Classic Flight Reward (5) Jetstar operated flights with a ’JQ’ flight number within New Zealand, travelling on an Economy Classic Flight Reward. If a Trip includes a Transfer (international – a flight within 24 hours) or a Transfer (domestic – same day) on other partner airlines, that Trip is not eligible for this offer. If your Trip includes multiple flight segments, the 30% discount will only be applied when your whole Trip is in the same cabin. For example, a Trip from Canberra to Auckland via Sydney will be eligible for the discount if all flight segments are Economy Classic Flight Rewards or if all flight segments are Business Classic Flight Rewards. If your Trip includes multiple cabins, e.g. Canberra to Sydney in Economy and Sydney to Auckland in Business, the discount will not apply to your booking. The discount applies to the Qantas Points amount required only and does not apply to the taxes, fees and carrier charges payable to Qantas (excluding any amounts payable to third parties at the airport) which are payable in addition to the Qantas Points required, accurate as at 24 May 2021 and subject to change. Taxes, fees and carrier charges are per adult in AUD unless otherwise stated rounded up to the nearest dollar and, based on payment at qantas.com by POLi. This offer is only available for bookings made on the Qantas website or via Qantas Contact Centres (fees may apply).
Fees will be automatically waived on changes or cancellations to any Classic Flight Reward booking, until 28 February 2022. To be eligible for the fee waiver, all flights in your booking must be Classic Flight Rewards. If you combine Classic Flight Rewards with non-Classic Flight Reward fares (“Commercial Fares”), the fee waiver will not apply. Reward Assistance and Service Fees may apply.
