Some Commonwealth Bank Awards cardholders can opt in to earn Qantas Points instead of Awards points. You can use this guide to compare the eligible cards, how many Qantas Points you can earn and learn how to opt into Qantas Awards.

Which CBA credit cards can earn Qantas Points?

You can choose to earn Qantas Points with the following Awards credit cards:

You'll earn 1 Qantas Point per 2.5 CommBank Awards points you collect. As an example, you can earn 1 CommBank Awards point per $1 spent with the CBA Platinum Awards credit card. This means that you'll earn 0.4 Qantas Points per $1 spent with this card.

How to opt in to earn Qantas Points

If you have one of the eligible Commonwealth Bank Awards credit cards, you can choose to earn Qantas Points instead of Awards points for an additional $30 annual fee. You can opt in to Qantas Frequent Flyer Direct via the Awards website redeem travel page or by calling 13 16 61. You need to be a Qantas Frequent Flyer member to do this. If you're not already a member, check out Finder's guide to joining the Qantas Frequent Flyer program for free to save on the $99.50 joining fee.

Once your CommBank Awards points have been exchanged for Qantas Points, the conditions of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program apply and you can't convert them back to CommBank Awards points.
