  • Existing CommBank Awards Points. If you earned CommBank Awards points before opting in to Qantas Frequent Flyer Direct, they will automatically be converted to Qantas Points and transferred to your frequent flyer account at the end of the next statement period.
  • Rewards program conditions. 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.
