Qantas’ 10 million Frequent Flyer members can now view and manage their loyalty accounts via the airline’s new online hub qantaspoints.com
The website provides a comprehensive list of ways in which loyalty programme members can earn or use their points, which are not just limited to point accrual or redemption on flights, but encompass a wide range of shopping, dining and service options as well.
The newly launched Qantas Points online portal
Taking a leaf out of Singapore Airlines’ recently launched KrisFlyer Spree portal (see here), the new website also reflects the growing trend towards using loyalty points for e-commerce. The Online Mall section of the website is stocked with premium global brands including Apple, eBay, David Jones and Macy’s, meaning Qantas’ Frequent Flyer members can shop online through a wide range of merchants and earn points at preferential rates.
For example, customers who shop at eBay will receive two Qantas Points for every A$1 (US$0.9) spent. Macy’s offers an even better accrual rate of four Qantas Points per dollar spent.

A comprehensive look into how to earn points
Qantas Loyalty chief executive officer Lesley Grant has expressed confidence in the new website and online shopping experience.
“What started as the Qantas Frequent Flyer program has grown significantly in the past few years, to include a lot of new ways to earn points and entirely new programs like Qantas Cash, Qantas Golf, aQuire, and Qantas epiQure, Qantaspoints.com is designed to help members navigate what’s on offer so that they can get the most out of it,” said Grant.
