Though those cards are popular with Point Hackers looking to maximise their Qantas Points sign-up bonuses, one major complaint has been the lack of mobile wallet integration.
Tap and pay, the Apple way
This is all set to change now, as cardholders with Apple devices are able to add their Qantas Money card to Apple Wallet for easier online purchase. Those with NFC-enabled Apple iPhones will also be able to simply tap their phone on the terminal to pay with the card.
For security, every Apple Pay transaction on your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac requires you to authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID or your passcode. This means it’s harder for thieves to make a fraudulent purchase if you lose your Apple device.
Qantas Money is playing catch-up by taking this long to introduce digital wallet functionality, but at least it’s here now. However, Apple Wallet won’t be carried over to the Travel Money pre-paid card, for now.
At the time of writing, Qantas Money has not yet set a firm date on when Google Pay compatibility will be rolled out for Android phone customers, but it’s understood that this feature is in the pipeline.
