Book flights this week for a major points saving.

Spending your frequent flyer points on flights is one of the best ways to get the most value from your carefully hoarded points stash. Right now, you can make those points stretch even further if you're looking to book a flight through Qantas Frequent Flyer.

The hack

Qantas has a deal right now where Classic Rewards flights can be had for 25% less than normal. That means instead of needing 128,000 points for a European return, you'll need 96,000.

Here are the details:

  • You have to book the flight through Qantas between 24 May and 29 May 2017.
  • Your booking must be for flights between 18 July 2017 and 6 May 2018. That's a broad range of dates, and includes several school holiday periods (though you'll find competition for available seats tougher during those times).
  • Only economy flights are eligible.
  • All destinations Qantas flies to in Australia and overseas are eligible, though there's no gurantee that any particular flight will be available.

You still need to pay for airport fees and taxes, but 25% off is a major discount. If you've been saving points for a holiday, this week seems a sensible time to book.
