Qantas Shopping (formerly Qantas Online Mall) is Qantas’ version of an online shopping portal, allowing Qantas Frequent Flyer members to earn points on purchases from a large range of partner retailers.
In this guide, we cover off the basics and key retailers for Australian online shoppers to help you earn more Qantas Points.
Guide to earning Qantas Points via Qantas Shopping
This is a quick overview of Qantas Shopping for those who aren’t familiar with the concept or the retailers in it or want a refresher.
What used to be known as Qantas Online Mall was rebranded as Qantas Shopping in mid-2018. The move was in line with the changes in other Qantas brands aimed at making it easier for members to understand the products or services being offered under each brand, which in this case is online shopping.
Online malls work by ensuring you log in with your frequent flyer program credentials before then being referred out (with a click) once logged in to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.
Qantas Shopping is no different and launched back in 2014 with just a handful of retailers, and has now grown to more than 130.
You can find it at shopping.qantas.com.

Other online shopping portals like the Velocity eStore, KrisFlyer Spree, Asia Miles iShop and Cashrewards also carry some of the retailers and are key ways to earn points or cashback from online purchases.
How to access
The main way to enter the shopping portal is to head over to the Qantas Shopping website on a desktop, laptop or tablet.
One advantage of Qantas is that they have mobile-optimised their portal. This makes it, I’d say, about twice as fast to get into the online store you’re purchasing from if you are on your mobile, which is pretty handy.
The mobile version of Qantas Shopping
In February 2019, they also introduced the Qantas Shopping Points-Prompter for Chrome and Firefox users. It is a browser extension which alerts you of points-earning opportunities when you’re on an eligible site.
The advantages are:
- it’s free to install
- it will automatically alert you on eligible sites
- it shows points-earning opportunities in Google searches
The disadvantages are:
- not all partners are included, e.g. Apple, ASOS and The Iconic
- when you install the extension, Qantas can read your data across all websites you visit, so make sure to take into consideration privacy concerns when deciding whether to install it
Qantas Shopping is a very usable option if you’re looking to earn more Qantas Points from your online spending — so get across the full list of partners over on the Online Mall site to see if there are any that work well for you.
