Qantas offers 50% status credit bonus for fast-track to Gold, Platinum

Ready to turbocharge your path to earning (or keeping) Gold, Platinum or even Platinum One status in the Qantas Frequent Flyer scheme?

A hot new 'end of financial year' promotion for the Qantas Business Rewards program is offering 50% more status credits on domestic and international Qantas flights.

That means your business class return trip to Singapore or Hong Kong from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane will yield just over 400 status credits, with the equivalent trip to Los Angeles racking up as many as 600 status credits, and London a whopping 930 status credits.

For most Australian Business Traveller readers that's your next year of Qantas Platinum membership locked away.

To qualify your business will need to belong to the Qantas Business Rewards scheme, which lets any business with an ABN earn frequent flyer points, on top of the full serve of points earned by the traveller themselves.

(If your business is not already a QBR member, there are plenty of reasons to sign up – here's an overview of how the program works and the manifold business benefits it offers.)

As with many other Qantas Frequent Flyer promotions you'll need to register – in this case entering your business ABN instead of your QFF number – and book an eligible flight by 19 June 2018, for travel through to 31 August 2018.

Once the business is registered, anybody who travels on an eligible Qantas flight and enters that business ABN and their Qantas Frequent Flyer number into the booking will pick up 50% more status credits.
