Reply To: Best use of points?

Back to Forum


Long time reader, first time poster here.

I was hoping to have some feedback from regular flyers on how to best spend Qantas points. I have approximately 250k points (each x 2 passengers, therefore 500k points) to play with for a trip planned to South America from Sydney – itinerary in mind looks something in the order:
Syd>Santiago>Rio>Mexico or Carib>Miami>LA>SYD.

I noticed on qantas that you are allowed 5 free stop overs but cannot figure out how to secure a stop over using their classic rewards system.

I tend to book point to point and not multi city, therefore would greatly appreciate any assistance. Ideally seeking minimum Syd LAX/Santiago in Premium Eco or higher and I am OK with Eco all other segments.

Time frame is roughly July 2016 (have to book that far ahead for work). I love planning segments but totally unfamiliar with South America and the Carrib.
