How to Easily Transfer Qantas Points

As Australia's largest and most popular airline, Qantas offers an extensive global itinerary with a reputation for outstanding service and an impressive operation and safety record.

Like most airlines, Qantas offers a frequent flyer program that enables travelers to earn points by simply booking flights, hotels, and car rentals. Qantas also has an extensive list of partner airlines in the program, which gives members even more options to choose from.

From flight upgrades to electronics and appliances, program members have thousands of choices to redeem their points. One perk of the Qantas frequent flyer program is the ability to transfer points to family members, as well as between a business account and any other Qantas frequent flyer member.

However, transferring Qantas points can sometimes be a tedious procedure. This is where DoNotPay can help with their efficient three-step process that can quickly and easily help you transfer Qantas Points.

How the Qantas Points Program Works

Becoming a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program will entitle you to earn points. 

  • When flying Qantas, earn 800-1,400 points depending on the flight class booked.
  • Booking on OneWorld alliance airline partners also earns points.
  • Earn more points as your membership tier moves up with status bonus rewards. Silver members earn 50% more points, gold members receive 75% more points, and platinum earns 100% more points. The number of credits earned is dependent on your fare and destination. Qantas' website has a calculator to find out how many points and status credits you can earn on a flight.
  • Earn classic flight rewards that upgrade your class on Qantas and OneWorld airline alliance flights.
  • Use a combination of points and payment for your flight with Qantas Points Plus Pay.
  • Sign up with a credit card that earns Qantas points to add to your program. However, these points must be transferred from the credit card to the Qantas points program.

How Much Money are Qantas Points Worth?

Qantas Points do not have monetary value and cannot be converted to cash. In fact, Qantas forbids the sale of frequent flyer rewards points.  However, the value of Qantas' points is calculated by how they are redeemed. 

  • Points used in the Qantas store are worth approximately half a cent each.
