If you are looking to upgrade a paid ticket to the next cabin, then you need a couple of thousand fewer points than before. Note that Discount Economy tickets are still ineligible.
By swiping the right card each time you buy groceries, you can be racking up enough points to earn a Business Class award flight each year. Here are two cards that we think should be on your wishlist and the differences between them.
Exceptional food, a private seat and a complimentary massage tick all the boxes but make sure you can find award availability and book the right aircraft. A good use of KrisFlyer, United or Avianca miles.
This card gives you triple points at supermarkets, double points on fuel and solid uncapped earning on everything else. Plus, the $200 travel credit more than offsets the annual fee.
This offer is the best of the last three but not as generous as the lowest publicly available price in June and July.
Stashing some Starpoints away to top up your Velocity, Asia Miles and KrisFlyer balances makes for a great strategy. This is a good opportunity to max out the 30,000 Starpoint limit for each calendar year.
Transfer at least 250,000 points to Velocity this month and you’ll earn elite status. These cardholders also get an extra 5% bonus on the standard 15% offered to most partners. Is it worth it?
The American Express referral program allows existing Amex cardholders to earn bonus points by referring friends and family to apply.
If you are in the market for a paid Business Class fare to Europe and looking to maximise your Qantas Points and Status Credits earn, then this may be a good deal for you.
Life just got a little bit easier at the checkout. Register and use by the end of November to earn some extra points.
You need to have made a transfer previously and that excludes cards that automatically sweep their points to Qantas. For those who are eligible, this is a useful offer for redemptions on Qantas, Emirates and oneworld airlines.
