Money Hack: Join Qantas Frequent Flyer for free
Save almost $90 and start earning Qantas Points for free.
Frequent flyer programs are an easy way to reward your spending and enjoy some free travel perks. But if you want to join the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, it’ll set you back $89.50 just to enrol. But, before you fork out the cash to join Australia’s favourite airline loyalty scheme, check out this hack to join for free.
If you sign up for the Qantas Cash travel card, you’ll receive complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership, saving you the $89.50! There isn’t a card issue fee, so it won’t cost you anything to order the card.
The card supports 11 international currencies, so you can use it to shop and earn Qantas Points in Australia and overseas. You just need to load the card with Australian dollars and then move the funds to one of the supported currency wallets if you want to spend overseas. Your money will be locked into the current exchange rate when you transfer it to a foreign currency wallet, so keep that in mind.
You can also earn 1.5 Qantas Points per $1 spent in foreign currency on eligible purchases overseas and 1 Qantas Point per $4 spent on purchases in Australia. The earn rate isn’t great for domestic spend, but it’s better than nothing.
There are some other fees associated with the card, so check out our review of the Qantas Cash for more information about how the card works.
