Massive bargains for points flights to Hawaii and more - don't miss 'em!

Not content with making every New Zealand flight in May available on points, Qantas has another treat in store for frequent flyers keen to redeem their Qantas Points after two years stuck at home.

From now until 20 March 2022, a handful of destinations are offering 30% off the normal rate required for a Economy Classic Reward.

These are the routes on offer, the number of Qantas Points needed for a one-way trip and how much you can expect to pay in additional carrier charges.

Classic Rewards are one of the top two ways to use your Qantas Points. (The other is upgrades, but those are trickier to score.)

Frequent flyer goals often centre on getting Business or First seats, but there is still plenty of value to be had in Economy redemptions.

It's usually possible to get more than $20 in value for each 1,000 points, which is my benchmark.

In the domestic routes, Melbourne-Brisbane is particularly good, because the carrier charges aren't too extreme.

And amongst the international routes, Hawaii is a tempting alternative to the more crammed (and frequently discounted) Jetstar routes.

That's the Qantas lounge in Hawaii pictured at the top of this story, by the way.

Happy bargain hunting!
