Get better exchange rates with Qantas Cash this week
Qantas Money is offering "special" exchange rates on its travel card for the next two days.
Do you have an overseas holiday coming up? Now might be the time to load money on your travel card if you’re a Qantas Cash customer. This is because Qantas Cash is offering special rates on foreign exchange for the next two days.
You just need to load your funds directly into one of the supported foreign currencies when you’re locking in the rate. The supported currencies include USD, GBP, EUR, THB, NZD, SGD, HKD, CAD, JPY or AED.
Even if you’re not travelling any time soon, it could also be a good way to get better exchange rates if you use your card to shop online with foreign merchants. This could especially come in handy considering Black Friday is coming up next week.
Unfortunately, Qantas Money doesn’t define exactly what it means by “special exchange rates”. In the terms and conditions, it does state that the exchange rates are “preferential exchange rates compared to the standard rates offered on the ten Qantas Cash supported currencies for each respective day during the promotion period.”
So, although the details are vague, you don’t really have anything to lose if you were planning on loading your Qantas Cash with funds anyway. As usual, you can also continue to look forward to earning 1.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent in foreign currency on eligible purchases overseas or online and 1 Qantas Point per $4 spent on eligible purchases in Australia.
As a limited time offer, you can only take advantage of the competitive exchange rates if you load the funds on your card by midnight 15 November 2017 (in other words, tomorrow night!).
