Save on the $99.50 membership fee.

Qantas Frequent Flyer offers lots of opportunities for earning points towards free flights and other goodies. As well as flying, you can score points through your credit card and Woolworths Rewards. But before you can do any of those things, you need to sign up for the program.

Normally, that requires a $99.50 joining fee. But why pay that if you don't have to? The newest trick for avoiding that cost is provided by Qantas itself. Join through the Qantas mobile app and the joining fee will be waived.

The hack

Simply install the Qantas app from the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play (for Android), then follow the prompts in the app to sign up for membership.
