Lesson 1 – Getting Started
The first thing you’re going to need is a Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Don’t have one? (why the hell not??)
Let’s get you signed up for free (don’t be the chump who pays $99 by signing up directly at Qantas.com.au).
Enter this search string into your browser (a new tab, don’t close this one!): “qantas frequent flyer membership free”
There will be a heap of ways to sign up for free, with new ones popping up all the time.
Some of the easiest sites to enroll from are Woolworths Rewards, Australia’s major banks, Luxury Escapes… it really doesn’t matter which one you use, but here’s a link that at the time of writing was active:
Start building your profile, set up a pin, enter your email address…. look, you know how to fill in a form so you can take it from here.
Congrats! Welcome to the Club!
Now, be sure to sign up your whole family to maximise your opportunites (points are transferrable – we’ll come to that another day)
Now that you’re a member, sign up for all the emails and updates. Qantas wants to get to know you, how you like to travel, where you want to go etc…
And make sure you keep a regular check on your emails, because this is where you’ll be able to take advantage of points and bonus offers when they come along.
For example, I got 1000 points just by clicking yes to getting a quote for solar panels. Two minutes of my time for 1000 points – yes please. (no, I didn’t go ahead and get solar panels but I’m thinking about it)
KEY POINT: SIGN UP FOR FREE, SIGN UP YOUR WHOLE FAMILY!
