Qantas offering 30,000 Qantas Points for first-time cardholders


Qantas is once again offering an extra bonus for new Qantas Points earning credit cards. During July, first-time holders of a credit card offering Qantas Points could get an extra 30,000 Qantas Points. These points are on top of any sign-on bonus that might be on offer.

For example, you could take out a card offering a bonus of 70,000 Qantas Points. If you meet the requirements of this promotion, Qantas will tip in another 30,000 Qantas Points, giving you the chance to get a total of 100,000 Qantas Points.

Details and Restrictions

While it is a generous offer, you do need to keep in mind that restriction. It is aimed at members who are taking out a Qantas Points earning card for the first time. Having said that, you can get the points if you have not earned Qantas Points from a credit card in the last 12 months.

If you pass that hurdle and are in the market for a new card, you will also need to register for the promotion. You can register from a special page that Qantas has set up for the offer.

So, the steps in full:

  • Register by 31 July 2020
  • Sign up for a new eligible point earning card
  • Make an eligible purchase on your new card within 30 days of receiving the card
  • Ensure that the points have been applied to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account by 31 October 2020
  • And then, 30,000 bonus Qantas Points will be yours.


Qantas has run a similar style of promotion for first-time cardholders in the past. What sets this one apart, though, is the bonus on offer. 30,000 Qantas Points is the most they have ever offered.

The first such promotion I am aware of was run in conjunction with Sunrise. This tipped in an extra 10,000 points on top of the sign-up bonus on offer. A later promotion gave 20,000 Qantas Points.

If you don’t have a Qantas Points earning card, but have been thinking of getting one, this might be a useful promotion.
