Many Point Hacks readers are already Qantas Frequent Flyer members, however, in case you’re not, this post covers one of Qantas’ more bizarre policies — a joining fee for frequent flyer membership.

Qantas usually charges a $99.50 joining fee per person for Australian residents, but you can save that money by simply clicking through one of the links below!

Most overseas residents can get it free, with New Zealand residents charged NZ$60.

It is quite odd that they would actually want to charge for this, but in all fairness, it is simple to get around. And even if you’re a member already, these codes are useful for signing up friends and family when needed.

Qantas runs promotions for free memberships with their frequent flyer program partners, such as banks and other program partners. It is possible to find a range of promotional application codes, as these links follow a common format.

How do I join Qantas Frequent Flyer for free?

  1. Click on one of the free membership promo codes below
  2. Fill out the application on the Qantas Frequent Flyer website
  3. Accept the terms and conditions of the program
