Ok, this one’s on me. Qantas has been offering double points on bookings since Monday and I’ve only just noticed. This may or may not be a targeted promotion – 3 out of 3 accounts that I have access to all got the promotional email so, if it’s targeted, it could be quite a broadly targeted promotion.

Qantas Double Points Promotion

Registration is required on the promotion page. All travelers need to register if they’re each to receive double points.

All eligible Qantas marketed and operated flights (i.e the aircraft is a Qantas aircraft and the flight number begins with QF)* booked by 11.59pm (AEDT) 16 November 2018 for travel between 1 December 2018 and 30 June 2019 will earn Qantas members double Qantas points.

*If your Qantas frequent flyer profile lists Australia or New Zealand as your place of residence then Emirates flights booked with a QF flight number are eligible too.

Qantas members will receive an email confirming their registration and, as long as a valid Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number is included in a booking, the bonus Qantas Points will be credited to your account up to six weeks after travel.
