Planning to join the Qantas Club? Then now's the time to act with savings of up to $856 off the overall membership price for new members, including a reduced joining fee of $231 – down from $385.
The promotion cuts the total cost of new memberships by 40%, dropping the price of a one-year membership from $895 to $537, while a two-year membership is lowered from $1,310 to $785, both including joining fees.
Splurge for four years and it'll cost you $1,284 – which works out to just $321 per year – instead of the usual $2,140 price with the full joining fee.
But you'll need to act fast: the deal winds up at 11:59pm (EST) on Friday May 12 2017. Wait until Saturday morning to join and you'll pay full price!
Existing Qantas Club members are excluded from the offer, as are those taking out new partner or corporate memberships.
Qantas Club membership not only provides access to selected lounges when travelling on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number, it also opens the barriers at priority check-in and boosts your baggage allowance with Qantas and Emirates.
On Australian domestic flights, that lets you pack 32kg rather than the usual 23kg maximum in economy, while you can bring an extra bag when bound for North and South America in economy and premium economy.
There's no additional allowance when booked in business class or first class on those flights, although you'll get an extra 12kg on all other Qantas international services and also most Emirates flights wherever you choose to sit.
Qantas Club members departing on domestic flights from Brisbane can also make use of Qantas' new Premium Lounge Entry facility: a private check-in and security screening channel which emerges in the centre of the lounge precinct.
