Frequently asked questions about Qantas sales

When does Qantas have sales?

Qantas doesn't have regularly scheduled sales. It often offers FlyAway sales that can feature deals for a specific destination or region or worldwide.

The airline constantly offers Red edeals which are its lowest priced flights on domestic legs.

You can expect Qantas to offer sales during certain event sales periods, such as Australia Day and Boxing Day. In the lead-up to Christmas, the airline also has a sale for 12 days featuring a new discounted fare each day.

Do I earn points for Qantas sale fares?

Qantas sale fares do earn Qantas Points. 3 factors determine how many points you get: the type of fare, the distance you fly and your membership status tier (bronze, silver, gold or platinum/platinum one). Longer flights and higher status tier members earn more points. But the type of fare also has a big impact.

A "sale" fare in the Qantas system is usually classified as a "Discount" fare. So if your fare is Discount Economy, Discount Premium Economy or Discount Business, you'll earn points but at a lower rate than for "Flexible" fares or regular fares. Higher status tiers will still earn more points on these fares. (Note: Qantas doesn't have a Discount First category, so we've left First out of this discussion.)

For a one-way Qantas-operated flight, you're guaranteed a minimum of 800 Qantas Points and 10 Status Credits. That's what you'd get for a Discount Economy flight from Sydney to Canberra, a journey of just 147 miles as the crow flies. And that applies even if you're a just-getting-started bronze Frequent Flyer.

The fares and tiers make a big difference to what you'll earn, but the rules differ for Qantas Points and Status Credits. The number of Qantas Points you earn depends on both the fare type and your tier level. However, the number of Status Credits is determined only by your fare type. The tier doesn't make any difference.

What does that mean in practice? Here's an example showing the Qantas Points earned for a single Melbourne-London trip for all the sale fare types and the impact that has on the total number of points earned. As you can see, if you go with a Discount Economy Fare, you'll get 33% fewer points regardless of your tier status. The points reduction is smaller for Discount Premium Economy and Discount Business and higher tiers aren't "penalised" as much.

FareTierQantas Points% fewer points than standard
Discount EconomyBronze6,20033.33%
Discount Premium EconomyBronze12,40020.00%
Discount BusinessBronze18,6007.69%
Discount EconomySilver9,30033.33%
Discount Premium EconomySilver18,60014.29%
Discount BusinessSilver24,8005.88%
Discount EconomyGold10,85033.33%
Discount Premium EconomyGold21,70012.50%
Discount BusinessGold27,9005.26%
Discount EconomyPlatinum12,40033.33%
Discount Premium EconomyPlatinum24,80011.11%
Discount BusinessPlatinum31,0004.76%

And here is the number of Status Credits you'd earn on that same route for Discount and regular fares depending on your fare class. Again, the penalty is steeper for Economy than for Premium Economy or for Business.

FareStatus Credits
Discount Economy70
Flexible Economy140
Discount Premium Economy140
Premium Economy150
Flexible Premium Economy165
Discount Business280
Flexible Business310

So does that matter? Sticking with this example, as an entry-level bronze passenger, you'd earn 6,200 Qantas Points from a one-way Discount Economy fare from Melbourne to London as opposed to 9,300 Qantas Points on a regular Economy fare. Points Finder would value those 3,100 points at just over $60. So if the sale fare is more than $60 cheaper, you're still better off overall.

The exception would be if you're hoping to use some of your points on that flight for an upgrade. Discount Economy fares aren't eligible for upgrades, so bear that in mind.

Do Qantas sale fares include extras like checked baggage?

All Qantas fares, regardless of whether it was purchased as part of a sale or not, includes checked baggage.

The airline also includes food, drink and in-flight entertainment with all flights.
