Get 20% off Qantas and Jetstar Economy Reward flights
Book an Economy Reward flight using points with Qantas and Jetstar and save 20% with Qantas' latest offer.
Have you been daydreaming about where your Qantas Frequent Flyer points could take you this summer? If so, there's no better time to book than this weekend. Qantas has announced that frequent flyers can receive 20% savings on all Economy Reward flight bookings made before 11.59pm on Saturday 27 August 2016.
It's pretty simple: you just need to log into your Qantas Frequent Flyer account, book an eligible Economy Qantas or Jetstar Classic Flight Rewards flight before this date and a 20% discount will be applied to the Qantas Points required. Note that the flights must be QF/JQ operated and booked for between 27 September 2016 and 12 August 2017 on Qantas, or between 27 September 2016 and 30 June 2017 on Jetstar. The offer is available to Qantas and Jetstar international destinations to and from Australia, as well across Australia and New Zealand, so where your points can take you is up to you.
Using the Qantas Points calculator, a return Economy Reward flight from Sydney to Melbourne would ordinarily cost 16,000 points. So if you applied before midnight on 27 August, it will only cost you 12,800 points to take this same flight. Similarly, if you were to book a return Economy Reward flight from Sydney to London (Heathrow), it would usually cost you 60,000 Qantas Points. With this offer, though, you could redeem the same trip to and from London for 48,000 points.
As with most Qantas Frequent Flyer offers, some terms and conditions apply. As well as booking your flights before the offer ends and during the time periods listed above, you should note that you can't earn rewards points on flights that involve a transfer. So, say you were taking that flight from Sydney to London, if that flight involved a stop and transfer at Brussels along the way, you wouldn't be able to redeem the 20% discount. It's also important to remember that the 20% discount only applies to the amount of points required for the flight, not the fees associated with booking a flight. Just as they would with any other Rewards flight, these are subject to availability and some flights may not have any Classic Flight Rewards.
This week is a good one for Qantas Frequent Flyers, with the airline offering rewards credit card holders up to 25% bonus points when transferring points from their card rewards program to their Qantas account before the end of August.
