Jetstar Frequent Flyer Rewards Program

Learn about the Jetstar Frequent Flyer Rewards Program

Last updated:

Jetstar is an affiliate airline company of Qantas, which is the largest airline company in Australia. With a Jetstar credit card you have the choice to choose to earn reward points through the Jetstar rewards program or Qantas frequent flyer points program. The ability to use either Qantas or Jetstar offers a wide variety of services to you for your flights. You get to have access to one of the largest frequent flyer networks, because both airlines are affiliated with the OneWorld alliance. You also can save money because Jetstar offers low priced flights.

Additionally, you will qualify for many different special offers that are a part of the Qantas and Jetstar rewards program. With all these ways to save, this frequent flyer program could be a worthwhile option if you want a big reward on a small budget. The Jetstar Platinum MasterCard gives you the option to earn 1 Qantas Frequent Flyer point per $1 spent OR 2c in Jetstar Dollars per $1 spent.

Wide Variety of Airline and Flight Options

The Jetstar rewards program offers an unprecedented variety of airlines when compared to other low cost airline companies. Even though Jetstar is a discount airline company, they are networked with Qantas, so they have all of the advantages of working with Australia's largest airline.

There are also three sister companies: Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam, and Valuair in Singapore. Between all of the different affiliates, Jetstar services 15 countries in the Asia Pacific region with nearly 2000 flights a week. So you can depend on them to travel anywhere in Asia Pacific, and you are sure to find a flight timing that is suitable for you.

In addition, Jetstar offers domestic flights to nearly every major Australian airport, as well as many major destinations in New Zealand. They also offer flights to other major destinations across Asia. The airline may have a fairly small number of destinations now, but they are rapidly expanding.

The Benefits of the Jetstar Rewards Program

  • Access to Qantas business class counters
  • Priority stand by and waitlist
  • Extra baggage
  • Selecting your seat in advance
  • Priority telephone reservation services

You can get even more rewards if you are a part of the elite tiers of the Jetstar rewards programs. You will also have access to exclusive deals with many different travel services from travel agencies, to car rentals and hotels.

How to Earn Your Frequent Flyer Points with the Jetstar Rewards Program

You will need to elect to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points with your Jetstar credit cards.

Another way to earn Jetstar or Qantas rewards points is by shopping with participating retailers, which include a wide range of travel companies. The affiliate retailers also include restaurants, liquor stores, car companies, and many different businesses. This means that you can accrue points without actually having to take a flight with Jetstar. This makes it a good deal for people who do not fly very often or prefer to fly on budget fares alone.

As a Qantas affiliate, you will be subject to all the regulations of the Qantas frequent flyer rewards program when you choose to enroll in the Jetstar rewards program. You are only eligible for membership in the rewards program if you are an individual. No corporations or businesses are permitted membership. Other than that caveat, joining the Jetstar rewards program is actually very easy to do.

      Hi Joao,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, at the moment Jetstar’s rewards program is only linked to their range of credit cards.

    Can you please confirm.
    With the Jetstar Platinum Credit Card you can either earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points or Jetstar rewards.
    If you want your points transfer to QFF you have an annual fee.

    My husband Dan Logan and I on 11 December and 27 December flew Jetstar, Auckland-Queenstown-Auckland, and have made another Jetstar booking Ak-Adelaide on 7 May 2014. I can’t seem to find out if we have accrued any loyalty points for flying Jetstar. If not, how do we do this? Also, if we in future fly Qantas do we need to apply separately to Qantas to join their loyalty program? We are Emirates members already.

      Hi, Jennifer.

      Thanks for your question.

      Please log onto your online Jetstar account for information on your points balance. You will be able to see how many points you’ve accrued through your online account. If you wish to accrue Qantas Point with your Jetstar MasterCard, you will need to opt into the Qantas program. An opt-in fee may apply.

      I hope this helps.

    I have just activated my new Jetstar MasterCard and was told that there is a $30 a year charge for linking to Qantas Frequent Flyer. Do not understand as I pay to be a member of this club (quite a bit of money), why I have to pay again? My last credit card did not charge me a fee for this and my limit was so much higher. Starting to think that maybe I stay with my current credit card and cancel Jetstar.

      Hi Sharon.

      Thanks for getting in touch with us and I can understand your frustration.

      There is a clause in the terms and conditions that outlines what you’ve described in your comment.

      Point 15 says, ‘A Qantas Frequent Flyer Rewards non-refundable annual fee of $30 will apply to the Jetstar MasterCard and will be charged upon your first enrolment and then each year on the anniversary of your enrolment in Qantas Frequent Flyer Rewards.’

      Please read the terms and conditions when you apply for a financial product, there are a number of clauses that can catch you out. We try to list these points when we review a card, so please be sure to check our review pages before you apply for a card.

      Please let us know if there is anything else you would like to discuss about this card.

    We have now used Jetstar to fly to Singapore on your Business class three times. We are wondering if you have any flying rewards programme. We are New Zealand residents. By the way all three flights have been great with excellent service.

      Hi John & Helen. I’m glad you enjoyed your flight, but we are – a comparison and information service.
      Jetstar have a frequent flyer loyalty program that lets you earn Jetstar Dollars when you spend on a Jetstar Credit Card, this page has a comparison and information on Jetstar Credit Cards. Jetstar dollars can be redeemed for flights with the carrier, and the cards allow you to book online and waive certain online books fees and charges. Jetstar credit cards can also be linked to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program too if you want to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer Points. Unfortunately, the cards we compare on our site are available permanent Australian residents and people visiting the country on a long stay visa. I am unaware if they offer a similar product to New Zealanders. You can compare credit cards that are available to New Zealand residents on our site. I hope this has helped and let us know if you have any more questions. Jacob.
