Qantas partners with ‘buy now, pay later’ provider Zip


Qantas has launched a new partnership with ‘fly now, pay later’ provider Zip. Under the new partnership, Frequent Flyers can earn additional Qantas Points when booking their flights using Zip.

Qantas customers can book domestic and international flights, and pay for their flights using Zip. This will allow customers to earn 1 Qantas Point for every $3 spent on flights.

On top of that, Qantas Frequent Flyers can choose to earn Qantas Points through Zip’s loyalty program, Zip Rewards, when making everyday purchases. This allows Qantas Frequent Flyers to earn even more Qantas Points  ‘on the ground’.


Qantas Frequent Flyers are able to earn Qantas Points as follows

  • 3,000 points when they sign up and link their Zip and Qantas accounts and complete their first transaction
  • 500 points each time they reach their Zip Rewards goal (see below for further details)
  • 1 point for every $3 spent on eligible flights on with Zip.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said this is the first time the airline has partnered with a buy now, pay later provider to offer the payment option for flight bookings.

“The option to buy now, pay later through Zip gives our customers more choice in how they pay for their flights. With Zip they can spread the cost over time choosing flexible repayments, and also earn Qantas Points on the payment as well as the flight itself,” Ms Wirth said.

New and existing Zip customers can choose to earn Qantas Points through Zip Rewards by linking their Qantas Frequent Flyer account in the Zip app. As customers reach their Zip Rewards Goal they can choose to redeem a $20 Zip cashback or 500 Qantas Points.
