If you’re not an Uber customer yet, here’s an easy way to pocket a handy 2,000 Qantas Points with your first Uber ride.

Qantas is offering 2,000 bonus points when you link or set up an Uber account via the Qantas app or at qantas.com/uber and subsequently request your first ride within Australia through either the Uber or Qantas app.

Each Qantas Frequent Flyer member can earn a maximum of 2,000 Qantas Points under this offer. It cannot be combined with a new rider offer (e.g. $x off your first ride), so if you have a choice between the two, work out which is more valuable to you (I’d value 2000 Qantas Points at $20-$30).

If you’re not a QFF member yet, you can join for free here.

Uber and Qantas have a broader partnership under which you can earn Qantas Points by booking Uber rides to and from the airport via the Qantas app.

Gold, Platinum and Platinum One members earn 3 points per A$1 spent, while silver members earn 2 points per A$1 and bronze members 1 point per $1.

If your trip isn’t to or from an airport, you won’t earn Qantas Points when using Uber – but you can earn Qantas Points on ride-shares by using GoCatch instead.
