(EXPIRED) 20% transfer bonus: Amex to Qantas

American Express Membership Rewards is offering a 20% transfer bonus when transferring points to Qantas Frequent Flyer through 6/30/19.  If you were targeted for Qantas’ own 15% to 30% transfer bonus (details here), the two bonuses should stack.  For example, one could transfer 100,000 Membership Rewards points into 120,000 Qantas points.  Then, if targeted, you would get 15% more for a total of 138,000 Qantas points.

The Deal

  • Get a 20% transfer bonus when transferring Amex Membership Rewards to Qantas Frequent Flyer by 6/30/19
  • With this bonus, 1,000 Membership Rewards = 1,200 Qantas points
  • If you were also targeted for Qantas’ 15% to 30% transfer bonus (details here), the two bonuses should stack.

Key Details

  • Valid through 6/30/2019

Quick Thoughts

Qantas can be great for short awards on American Airlines that require connections. Qantas can also be a great option for awards on El Al, so those looking to travel to Israel can benefit from a new transfer partner. Dan’s Deals has a good post on using Qantas points for travel on El Al.  With this transfer bonus, those opportunities become even better.

For those who were targeted for Qantas’ own 15% to 30% transfer bonus (details here), the deal is good enough to consider transferring points prospectively.  A 20% bonus with a 15% bonus combines to a 38% bonus.  In general I don’t recommend transferring points without a specific near term use in mind.  Even with a combined 38% bonus I wouldn’t recommend it without a near term plan unless you are certain that you can use those points towards good value in the future.
