5 ways to earn extra Qantas Points from your business in 2021
We all know flights are the big-earners, but there are plenty of other ways to collect Qantas points through your business.
Borders are open again and flights are back on, so businesses can finally start earning big points thanks to domestic work trips. But flights aren't the only way to stock up.
Whether you rarely have to fly in your line of work, or you just want to earn as many points as possible, there are plenty of alternatives to collect frequent flyer points through your business.
Put all business expenses on a rewards card
Some credit cards let you earn up to 225,000 Qantas Points over a 12-month period. It's just a shame you can't pay for all your business expenses via credit card, right?
Actually, you can. Payment management systems like B2Bpay give businesses the ability to pay invoices via credit card, even when the biller doesn't accept credit card payments directly.
It's essentially a go-around and can earn you and your business big rewards. Using B2Bpay as an example, you could earn 1 Qantas point for every $7 paid to the ATO and 1 point for every $10 paid to other billers. You'll even get rewarded if you pay via bank account too, with 1 point for every $3 paid.
Pick a service that gives points when you get payments
This might be our favourite frequent flyer hack for businesses. Use a payment platform that rewards you when a customer pays their invoice and you won't just get paid, you'll earn points too.
For example, B2Bpay gives businesses 1 Qantas Point for every $20 received from eligible Visa, Mastercard, and Amex payments. Just include the B2BPay link on your invoice and you're good to go. Similarly, Live EFTPOS lets businesses earn 1 Qantas Point per $25 transacted.
You're literally earning rewards for getting paid. Plus, your customers can also earn points simply for paying their bill. Everyone's happy!
Sign up to the business rewards program
Over 300,000 Australian businesses have already joined the Qantas Business Rewards program, giving them money off flights as well as a whole raft of other rewards.
You don't just score points when you book flights; you can also earn on expenses like fuel, hotels, insurance, laptops, workwear and even restaurant bookings. Then, use the rewards to treat yourself, your team or reinvest in the business.
Shop with reward program partners
Familiarise yourself with reward program partners and check in before you make a big purchase to see if a certain brand is running a promotion.
For example, as of March 2021, Qantas Business Rewards partners include Apple, eBay, Microsoft, and NRMA. You can score rewards for everything from new laptops to corporate cleaners and countless things in between.
Look out for bonus point offers
Some hacks take a little extra work but if you're willing to make the effort, they can seriously pay off. In this case, if you keep your eyes peeled for bonus offers, you'll see your points accumulating quickly.
For example, if you notice a provider is offering triple points for a limited time, it might be better to make that investment sooner, rather than later.
