How to maximise Qantas Points for business

If you have found your business with plenty of Qantas Points and aren’t sure on the best ways to spend them, you are not alone. 

Fortunately, there are lots of amazing ways to use Qantas Points to reinvest in your business. Some of the best options include redeeming for rewards like flights and upgrades, shopping and hotels.^ 

There are many ways to earn points rapidly, including sign-on bonuses for new credit cards. If you find yourself with a hefty balance of points, here are some of the best ways to use them.

Choose the right card

You can earn Qantas Points for your business using a Qantas Business Rewards Card. For example, the American Express® Qantas Business Rewards Card earns your business up to 1.25 Qantas Points for every $1 you spend on business purchases^^

A great way to earn points quickly is choosing a Card with a great welcome bonus for new Card Members. Explore the offers and exclusive benefits you could receive when you apply for the American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card. Offers are available to new American Express Card Members only. See the latest offer here.

By using these cards on your everyday business spend, you could earn enough points to redeem on the recommendations in this guide before you know it.

Boost your points earning potential with B2Bpay

Adding B2Bpay to your business can help you earn points even faster. You earn additional Qantas Points every time you spend, including:

  • 1 Qantas Point per $10 paid to other suppliers*
  • 1 Qantas Point per $7 in government payments*

     

And even more for the amount you pay to B2Bpay Bonus Billers*

You can earn even more points on Qantas products, Qantas flights, and making government payments. Plus, with B2Bpay, you also earn points each time you get paid! 

In fact, if your business spends $8,000 per month and invoices $20,000, you could make a total of 11,800 Qantas Points each month. Before you know it, you can reward your business by using your points  on some amazing deals.

Three Ways to Use Qantas Points to Power Your Business:

1. Premium Flight Seats and Upgrades 

Need to travel for business? If you have a lot of points, redeeming them for business travel for you or your team can undoubtedly be one of the best ways to use them.

For example, Fly Business Class on Classic Rewards from Sydney to Auckland return ( 83,000 points plus taxes and fees)~ 

Typically, securing a Classic Rewards flight is the best way to redeem points for flights, so keep an eye on the Qantas site for the best seats. 

If you have purchased flights using cash, Classic Rewards, or Points Plus Pay,  you can also use your business’ Qantas Points to upgrade your seat using points via Classic Upgrade Rewards.

For example, if you’ve purchased an Economy flight using cash, from Sydney to Auckland, you can upgrade to Business Class seats for 21,800 points (plus taxes and fees).`

2. Shop Online

From tech and gadgets to Australian-made products, gift cards and more, Qantas Marketplace has tons of available options to make shopping for your business easier.

The best part is, when shopping on Qantas Marketplace, you can also earn 3 points per $1 you spend. So if you want to buy something outside of your points budget, you can earn additional points for your business 

For example, you can power your business with a 10.2-inch iPad (9th-generation) Wi-Fi 64GB on Qantas Marketplace for 100,550 points.±

Aside from flights, Qantas also lets you spend points on unique hotel deals. Typically, there are two offerings for each trip: one including flights and one without. Notably, the deals with flights cost a lot more points, but there are still some short-haul and domestic options available for less than 160,000. 

With even more points, you can stack your bundles and extend your stay, or add flights to your hotel deal. Either way, the Qantas luxury holidays are a great offer that can leave you only paying for flights. 

Let’s see what great deals are available for 160,000 points.

3. 5-Star Comfort in Luxury Hotels

Aside from flights, Qantas also offers unique hotel deals that can be booked using points.

To suit every business and budget, you can book your hotel as a standalone, or
book a flight and hotel bundle through Qantas Holidays, with options available for less than 160,000 points. 

Example: Book a two-night stay in Singapore’s iconic The Fullerton Hotel (147,936 points)#
