Frequent Flyer Membership
If you fly a lot, you should consider joining Qantas Frequent Flyer club. This way, every time you travel you earn Qantas Points. To join this program, all Australian residents must pay a joining fee o AU$89,59 and fill up a form with personal data. You will be rewarded with points on every flight, but the number of points will depend of your travel class and distance flown. You can use an app Qantas Points for iOS, Windows Phone and Android to keep track of your points. If you gather enough of them you can redeem them for flights and upgrades at Qantas, but you can also use them at Qantas partners like hotels, car rentals and many more.
Don’t miss anything
Airlines have accustomed us to varying prices depending on time, destination and popular discounts. If you don’t have time to keep track of them, there are three ways to do it automatically. First, use Qantas smartphone app to create a notification alert on discount for the flight that you want to take. The app lets you do tons of stuff – you can book flights and hotels, store boarding pass in Apple Wallet and turn on alerts for departure, boarding time and more. Check it yourself.
Second, subscribe to Red Email. It’s a form of newsletter, but instead of boring spam – you get Qantas deals and sometimes even Qantas promo codes directly to your e-mail. Just open Qantas website, scroll to the bottom find a box that says “Enter your email address”, fill it up and click “subscribe”. Of course you can cancel this subscription at any time, so don’t worry about getting too many e-mails.
Third way is using an RSS Feed. Most websites use RSS to notify their about new posts, but at Qantas you can personalise them and choose what you are looking for – select your region, city and feed type and you will be informed about latest fares directly to your rss-enabled browser or third-party software that you use to read rss.
