Are you making the most of your frequent flyer points?
About half the Australian population holds a frequent flyer membership, but many of us continue to cash-in our hard-earned points at the lower end of the spectrum. Unfortunately, some of the most redeemed options are also the least valuable.
Where at all possible, avoid using your points to purchase products via the airlines’ eStores (that means no toasters!). Rather, redeem them for reward flights. Skip directly to our popular “best of” guides below or keep reading to learn more about getting the most out of your airline currency!
This is a starter guide, relevant to both Qantas Frequent Flyer and Virgin Australia’s Velocity, which aims to give you the information you need to get more value! Throughout the article look out for the related article links, which provide more detail about your loyalty program.
