Q&As about Free Qantas Frequent Flyer Membership from Customers

Q: Who should choose a card with complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership?

Since cards with complimentary Qantas Frequent Flyer membership only have this benefit because they also earn Qantas Frequent Flyer (QFF) points on any spending made with them, anyone who wants to collect QFF points can take advantage of this type of card. However, they will only be able to use the free QFF membership if they are not already a QFF member, since the fee is payable only once when fist joining the program.

Q: Do all cards offering QFF points also offer complimentary QFF membership?

The majority of QFF points-earning cards do pay the QFF program joining fee for new cardholders who are not already members. However, it is by no means universal, and you will need to check that your chosen card has this benefit if the joining fee waiver is important to you.

Q: Are there any cards offering free membership with other airline frequent flyer programs?

Qantas Frequent Flyer is one of the few airline programs to charge a joining fee. Virgin Australia’s Velocity Program is free to join. Australians can also earn or transfer rewards points to Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific, AirAsia, Malaysian Airlines and Etihad. With the exception of Cathay Pacific, which has a USD50 joining fee, all of their frequent flyer programs are free to join.

If you want to earn QFF points by flying with Jetstar, you’ll need to be a QFF member.

Q: Will I be automatically enrolled in the QFF program if I choose a card with complimentary QFF membership?

No. If you are not already a QFF member you will need to make it clear during the card application process that you require the joining fee waiver.

Q: Do cards with complimentary QFF membership have any other benefits?

Any card with complimentary QFF membership will also earn QFF points on any spending with the card. For a QFF card with a very low annual fee, these may be the only two benefits. Cards with a higher annual fee are likely to include benefits like complimentary travel and shoppers’ insurance, airport lounge passes, bonus QFF points, and even free flights on the most expensive cards.

Q: Is 1 QFF point worth $1?

Sadly, no. It’s more like 1 cent. What you spend your QFF points on will determine the value that you get from the points. For example, if you redeem/spend some points for 1 x $100 gift card or a consumer product like a TV it won’t be the best value. If you build up your points total and redeem/spend your points on a domestic or international seat in premium economy or business class you will get a much higher points-to-dollar value.

Q: How easy is it to be approved for a Qantas frequent flyer credit card?

The criteria and the process is the same as all other credit cards, but because these cards are premium products the bar is higher. Credit card lenders verify your identity, assess your financial profile and look at your credit rating. That being said, not all frequent flyer credit cards require high earnings. Just make sure you have no history of bad credit and you should be okay.
