With thanks to Point Hacks Community member rock86 for posting this deal, you can earn big Qantas Points with a Samsung smartphone purchase this month.

If you are a small business owner, you may be able to earn even more points.

Presumably, this is an attempt to encourage consumers to upgrade to Samsung’s latest smartphone before the impending release of the next iPhone model next month.

Offer details

  • Covers both plans and outright purchases of new Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ models
  • Must be from an Australian in-store or online retailer (excludes auction sites like eBay)
  • You must claim bonus points within one month of purchase through this link, i.e. the bonus points do not post automatically

Here is the offer page and full terms and conditions.

(Potentially) stack for more bonus points if you are a small business owner

Technically, you should be able to also claim 3 Qantas Points for every $ spent on any Samsung purchase if you are a Qantas Business Rewards member.

I am not 100% sure about if you can stack these two promotions together, so my advice would be to claim the 20,000 points within the required one-month period, wait for them to post, and then try to claim the extra bonus points within six months of purchase.

If you purchase the Galaxy S8 for $1,199 RRP, you can potentially earn an extra 3,597 Qantas Points; the Galaxy S8+ retails for $1,349, possibly earning you 4,047 more points.

To put that in perspective, you can enjoy Cathay Pacific First Class from as little as 26,000 Qantas Points.
