During October Qantas are running a ’30 million point’ giveaway. Up for grabs during the month, are 30 Qantas Points per day, through the Qantas Assure App, just for walking. While this comes in at less than 1,000 Qantas Points over the month, they could be points for doing exactly what you are doing now.
The promotion is being run with Qantas Assure. Members that download and log into the Qantas Assure App during October will also be rewarded with 150 Qantas Points.
Qantas Assure App
The Qantas Assure App has been around for 18 months or so. Once synced with a fitness tracked, it allows you to earn Qantas Points for performing activities such as walking.
Normally, you need to hold a Qantas Assure policy to unlock any points that have been awarded. However, during various promotional periods, you don’t need to have a policy to get the promotional points.
Points for walking
During October, Qantas are offering members that can walk greater than 8,000 steps in a day, 30 Qantas Points for their efforts. The 8,000 steps has been set just above the 7,400 steps a day that is accepted as the national average for walking.
During October, you do not need to hold a Qantas Assure product to have the points transferred across to your Qantas account. Qantas state that the transfers will occur fortnightly, so we can expect that there will be at least two sets of points transferred across during the month.
On top of the points giveaway, Qantas is also offering members the a chance to win $1,000 travel vouchers. Any member achieving the 8,000 steps in a day challenge, will receive one entry for each day they achieve the goal.
