Qantas and Optus have partnered to provide frequent flyers the opportunity to earn Qantas Points on mobile phone plans.

From today, Qantas Frequent Flyer’s 13 million members can earn up to 20,000 bonus Qantas Points and up to 10 points for every dollar spent on their monthly plan fee through three new Optus SIM Only mobile plans, including a plan with international roaming included.

The three plans are:

  • $39 SIM Only Plan: Includes 30GB of data. Earn 5,000 bonus Qantas Points plus 5 points per $1 spent on the monthly plan fee.
  • $59 SIM Only Plan: Includes 100GB of data. Earn 10,000 bonus Qantas Points plus 10 points per $1 spent on the monthly plan fee.
  • $79 SIM Only Plan: Includes 150GB of data plus 5GB roaming. Earn 20,000 bonus Qantas Points plus 10 points per $1 spent on the monthly plan fee.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said partnering with Optus would deliver more ways for frequent flyers to earn points.

“The pandemic has taught us just how important connection is to all of us, whether it’s over the phone or in person. As international travel reopens, we believe frequent flyers will jump at the opportunity to have roaming included with their mobile plan,” Ms Wirth said.

“We see frequent flyers adding a substantial number of points to their balances every year through everyday spend like shopping at Woolworths, filling up at BP, and now on their Optus mobile plan.”

Optus Managing Director, Customer Success, Maurice McCarthy, added, “This is just the beginning of our partnership, with our two brands sharing a vision to explore ways to add value for Australians. As our partnership grows, it will see us broadening the opportunities to trial new digital innovations in market, in line with the Optus ‘digital everywhere’ strategy.”
