Earn 20,000+ Qantas Points with an Optus mobile plan: All the details


Score a free international flight by just paying your monthly Optus mobile bill.

Optus is upping its game by offering Qantas Frequent Flyer points through its new and exclusive range of mobile plans.

In fact, you could earn enough points in a year to get a free international flight or several domestic flights.

"Frequent Flyers could earn enough points in a year to fly from Brisbane to Tokyo or take several domestic flights through these Optus mobile plans," said Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth in a media release.

"Plus, if members pay their phone bill with a Qantas Points earning credit card, they could increase their points earning potential ever further."

What mobile plans are available in the Qantas and Optus partnership?

Both new and existing Optus customers and Qantas Frequent Flyer members will be able to access 3 exclusive mobile plans via the Qantas website. These plans are particularly great for data heavy users.

  • 30GB for $39 a month
  • 100GB for $59 a month
  • 150GB for $79 a month

You will also have access to a few perks and features such as:

  • Endless data. Once you've used up your data allowance, your speeds will be reduced to 1.5Mbps until your next recharge.
  • Optus 4G/5G network.
  • International roaming. Only available on the 150GB plan for unlimited calls and texts in selected destinations.
  • Free subscriptions to Optus Sport and OS Fitness.

How many Qantas Frequent Flyer points can you earn?

Your sign-up bonus flyer points will depend on the mobile plan you choose. The breakdown is:

  • 5,000 points on the 30GB plan
  • 10,000 points on the 100GB plan
  • 20,000 points on the 150GB plan

On an ongoing basis, you will earn 5-10 Qantas Points per $1 spent.

It's 5 points per $1 for the 30GB and 100GB Optus mobile plans, and 10 points per $1 for the 150GB plan.

Are these Optus mobile plans worth it?

Given domestic and international travel is now taking off once again, earning flyer points seems like a tempting offer.

Plus, no other mobile provider in Australia, apart from Kogan, is currently offering travel-related rewards.

Kogan only offers 1 Qantas point for every $2 spent and no bonus points at all, so Optus wins this battle big time.

How do these exclusive mobile plans stack up against Optus's own plans?

If you were to compare Optus's normal SIM only plans to its Qantas exclusive offers, you might find better value with the latter. Especially if you prefer flyer points over heaps of data.

For example, the 30GB plan offers better bang for your buck than Optus's usual entry level SIM-only offer (20GB for $45).

We reckon if your budget is flexible, the Qantas exclusive mobile plans could be solid options to consider.

    Currently have Internet and Mobile phones connected through Internode – problematic. Where is the best place to bundle these from a cost perspective with either Qantas or Velocity frequent flyer points a bonus?

      Hi Ronnie,
      You can read our guide to NBN and mobile bundles to see if anything suits your budget:
      Optus is the only telco that gets you QANTAS points, but doesn’t offer an internet and mobile bundle.
      Hope this helps.
