  • Earn Qantas Points by booking your trip to and from Aussie airports via Uber

  • Up to 3 Points per dollar spent on Uber charges

  • Kicks in November 3rd

Forget using your credit card, Frequent Flyer members can now earn Qantas Points when booking an Uber via the updated Qantas app for their trips to and from Aussie airports.

As of November 3rd, an Uber icon will appear within the booking section of the Qantas app which will allow members to book an Uber and earn Qantas Points when travelling to or leaving any eligible Australian airport (a full list of which is located at the bottom of this article).

Qantas Chief Customer Office, Olivia Wirth said that the aim of this partnership was to make the entire travel experience a more seamless and rewarding one for Qantas Frequent Flyer customers.

“Millions of our Frequent Flyer members will be able to book their flight, their ride to the airport and their hotel on the Qantas app, and earn points from all three of them,” said Wirth.

With this initiative, Qantas want to reward its most loyal customers and because of that, will offer three rates depending on your Qantas Frequent Flyer member level.

If you’re a Bronze member you’ll earn 1 point per dollar spent on airport Uber rides, 2 Qantas Points per dollar for Silver members and at the highest rate, 3 Qantas Points per dollar spent for Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members.

But that isn’t all. Frequent Flyer members who sign up to Uber for the first time and book a trip through the Qantas app will receive a bonus 2,000 Qantas Points.

“Our focus is how we can make people’s entire journey more seamless, and incorporating the option to order an Uber through our app helps do that,” said Wirth.

The new partnership is just another cause for celebration for travel-loving Aussies after Mozo’s Experts Choice Awards last week revealed that a range of Qantas rewards cards offer exceptional value for their owners.

Among the award winners in the Frequent Flyer category was the Qantas Discovery Card from our Provider of the Year, American Express and Qantas Money’s Qantas Premier Card.

“These two products provide great value for Aussies who travel often and favour Qantas as their airline of choice,” said Mozo Director, Kirsty Lamont.

“The new partnership with Uber is just another avenue, alongside using their rewards card, to accrue valuable Qantas Points that will come in handy the next time they’re travelling interstate or abroad,” she said.
