Business owners can now steadily build their balance of Avios in the Qatar Airways Privilege Club program thanks to a new partnership with PayRewards. That’s the loyalty program of – a payment processor through which entities can earn uncapped points for paying supplier invoices, tax bills and more.

Under the new arrangement, PayRewards members can convert their points into Avios at a 3:1 rate. To illustrate, 120,000 PayRewards Points can become 40,000 Avios. But that’s on a normal day. Until the end of March, transfers from PayRewards to Privilege Club come with a 25% bonus on top – getting you closer to that next reward flight.

PayRewards has multiple partners to which you can convert points.

Transfers to these other partner programs take place at a 2.5:1 rate. While Privilege Club will use a 3:1 rate instead, the program offers some great-value ways to use those hard-earned Avios. For instance, a one-way Business Class ticket on Qatar Airways from Australia to Europe can be had for 90,000 Avios (subject to availability), plus taxes, fees and charges.

On a normal day, that means every 270,000 PayRewards Points could get you to Europe in Qsuites Business Class. But if you transfer your points during the 25% bonus offer, the numbers get even better. With that bonus included, it’s as if the Privilege Club conversion rate were 2.4:1.

Summing up

Qatar Airways Privilege Club is rapidly expanding in the Australian market. For a long while, it was quite difficult to earn rewards with Qatar Airways in any significant number, except via a couple of select credit cards like Citi Prestige. But now, Qatar’s partnership with PayRewards opens the door quite significantly.

Of course, the PayRewards deal also complements Qatar’s recent addition to the American Express Membership Rewards program. This creates some interesting double-dipping opportunities for business owners with an eligible Amex charge card. The business could earn points twice by paying a single bill. Once, by using their points-earning Amex card. And again by choosing to earn PayRewards points on the same transaction.

Those new to can also earn a bonus 10,000 PayRewards Points. Simply sign up here and transact at least $10,000 in your first month using an eligible payment method.
