Qantas and Vodafone connect for new rewards program
Article by Roisin Kelly-Goldsmith
Qantas Frequent Flyer and Aquire members can now sign up to a new rewards program and earn points on selected Vodafone plans.
CEO of Qantas Loyalty, Lesley Grant said it’s just another way the airline is rewarding customers for being connected.
“Helping people stay connected, whether it’s through travel or their mobile phone, is something that Qantas and Vodafone are both passionate about so this partnership makes perfect sense,” she said.
By signing up, renewing or upgrading to the new program called Qantas Red, individuals and businesses can earn up to 15,000 points.
“Our partnership with Qantas is just another way Vodafone is making business better for mobile customers,” said Stuart Kelly, Manager of Business at Vodafone.
This deal between the phone provider and airline is one of the latest ways customers can top up points to earn rewards. Recently Qantas tied a taxi booking app called goCatch to the points based system, and prior to that a fitness app to reward healthy habits.
Vodafone customers with the Qantas affiliated Red plans also have access to free roaming on their phones when travelling in New Zealand until December this year.
Features and benefits for Qantas Frequent Flyer and Aquire members:
-Allows members to earn “one off” bonus points on three types of Vodafone 24 month plans. On an $80 monthly plan, customers will get a 4,000 point booster, $100 plans will equal 5,000 points, and $130 plans will earn 7,500 points.
- Customers will receive double points if they sign up, renew or upgrade online instead of in store.
