Boost your Qantas Points balance with a double points promotion.

Last updated:

Qantas Double Points Promotion feature

Qantas Points are the main currency of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. Having enough Qantas Points opens the door to being able to use your points for flights with Qantas and partner airlines like Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Qatar Airways, American Airways and Emirates.

Qantas runs several double points promotions throughout each year. Much like the double status credit promotions it runs from time-to-time, there are no regular set times Qantas runs these promotions.

To be eligible for these promotions, you'll usually have to:

  • Register for the promotion on the Qantas site
  • Book your flights during the promotional period for travel within the dates mentioned in the terms and conditions
  • Allow up to six weeks after the completion of travel for your points to reach your account

What's the catch?

As with any promotion, be sure to carefully read the terms and conditions before assuming you'll earn double points for these flights. Usually Qantas double points promotions have some conditions you should be aware of:

  • Usually only applies to Qantas-operated flights. Double points are generally only offered for Qantas-operated flights, but this can differ depending on the promotion itself. Past promotions have seen double points also offered for specific partners such as Emirates or American Airlines.
  • Be careful if you're buying and using flight vouchers. Qantas generally allows flight vouchers to earn double points, but the voucher must be bought during the promotion and redeemed for flights during the travel periods mentioned in the promotion.
  • Can't be stacked with other bonus offers. Qantas doesn't usually allow you to use multiple bonus points offers for the same bookings.

How many Qantas Points could I earn during a bonus points promotion?

The exact number of Qantas Points earned for any flight depend on the flight route itself, the fare type of the ticket purchased, and the airline operating the flight. More expensive fare types and classes typically earn more points.

As an example, see the number of points earned for a Qantas-operated flight from Sydney to New York:

Discount Economy 6,200 points
Economy 9,300 points
Flexible Economy 12,400 points
Discount Premium Economy 12,400 points
Premium Economy 15,500 points
Flexible Premium Economy 17,000 points
Discount Business 18,600 points
Business 20,150 points
Flexible Business 21,700 points
First Class 24,800 points

Here are some examples of how many points some typical economy class domestic and international flights could earn in a double Qantas Points promotion:

THE POINTS FINDER TAKE

Qantas runs several double points promotions each year. Some promotions only offer double points when using specific parts of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program such as when spending with Qantas shopping partners. These promotions can be a good way to earn bonus points for doing nothing extra apart from flying with Qantas, so it can be a good idea to book upcoming trips during promotions to earn more points.
