Earn Qantas Points with Partner Credit Cards

In addition to using any of the credit cards listed above, you can also earn Qantas Points by using credit cards offered by transfer partners. You can use these credit cards to build up your rewards and then transfer your earned rewards directly to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

Qantas has 7 transfer partners which are:

  • ALL - Accor Live Limitless (1:1)
  • American Express Membership Rewards (2:1)
  • Choice Hotels (5:1)
  • Hilton Honors (50:3)
  • World of Hyatt (2.5:1.2)
  • IHG Rewards Club (5:1)
  • Marriott Bonvoy (3:1)

Out of these programs, the best (and really only) option is the American Express Membership Rewards program. If you own the The American Express Platinum Card, you'll be able to transfer Membership Rewards Points directly to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account at a 2:1 ratio meaning that 2,000 Membership Rewards Points will equal 1,000 Qantas Points. If you're already heavily invested in the Membership Rewards program and you're looking for a luxury travel card, The American Express Platinum Card is a great option.
