Back in November 2017 I wrote about how Qantas and the financial trading firm IG have partnered to allow IG customers to earn Qantas Points on share trades.
At the time they also launched an offer allowing new IG customers to pick up a bonus 10,000 Qantas Points by opening a share trading account and making one trade.
That bonus offer is still running – and it continues to be a relatively easy way to pick up 10,000 Qantas Points … if you know what you’re doing!
The bonus points are available to new IG customers only, who must be individuals (not companies or other organisations).
To take advantage of this offer, you need to open a share trading account via this link, deposit some money into your account (from what I can tell, at least $450 if paying by credit card or paypal; no minimum if depositing by bank transfer) and make a trade. I can’t see anything in the T&Cs that specifies a minimum trade size, so it appears even a tiny trade qualifies for the bonus.
Note that you’ll incur fees of $16 for the transaction (or 0.1% of the trade size if it’s a larger trade) plus you’ll have a profit or loss on the trade itself.
There are risks involved with share trading, of course, especially if you’re new to it – so take the time to consider if this is right for you before taking the plunge.
