SYDNEY, Australia – Qantas airlines is offering as much as 25% worth of bonus points when for their customers when transferring from credit cards.
It is not surprising to see a couple of bonus transfer ads and promotions throughout the year, which are often tiered and targeted. Now, development is available to all qualified Qantas flyers, which features a lot more value from their other offers.
Qantas airlines recently posted their latest promotional offer, which is both tiered and targeted like most bonus transfer promotions. The new promotion from the airline comes with two different bonuses. Each bonus features an amount depending on the overall number of points that the credit card holder will be transferring.
Compared to other transfer promotions offered before, the new one from Qantas airlines is different. The bonus offer is only available to claim for manual transfer credit cards. Those who have credit cards that transfer points automatically to their frequent flyer accounts wouldn’t be are not qualified for this promotion.
It is necessary to check with the credit card provided if a particular card is qualified to take this offer. However, among the leading and widely used credit cards that can leverage on the new Qantas bonus promo includes the following: both personal and business American Express Centurion Card, American Express Platinum Charge Card, America Express Business Platinum Charge Card, Commbank Awards Credit Card, ANZ Business Rewards Credit Card, Commbank Awards Platinum Credit Card, Commbank Awards Diamond Credit Card, and Suncorp Bank Rewards Credit Card.
The new 25% bonus points offer from Qantas is targeted only. Not everyone will qualify for the transfer bonus, and those who received an email are only the ones who get a chance to take home the bonus if they so choose.
Another catch for this transfer bonus promotion is that the points transfer should be made only until 11:39 pm today, March 31, 2020. The points bonus from the offer isn’t going to appear in the frequent flyer account instantly as well. It will take around 15 days before the points will come through the account.
Further, the points bonus will depend on the number of points transferred. For a transfer for points worth 499,999, the bonus offer rate is 15% only. However, for a transfer of points worth around 500,000, the bonus offer rate would be 25%.
Meanwhile, if the account has received a similar promotion that has been activated in the past 30 days, the offer that holds the higher rate will be the one credited to the frequent flyer account.
Also, after transferring the point to the Qantas frequent flyer account through this bonus points offer, it cannot be reversed.
Aside from the new bonus offer, Qantas also has other existing special offers exclusive to its members.
