Points transfer instantly.
This new transfer option is great news for travel to Israel as Qantas has a fantastic award chart for travel on El Al.
Citi has run 25% transfer bonuses for transfers to Qantas, so I’d imagine we will see those as well with AMEX in the future.
Additionally, if you transfer any amount of points to Qantas during a non-bonus period, you can get targeted for future transfer bonus promotions that offer up to 45% bonus points.
Last time, you were able to stack Citi’s 25% bonus together with Qantas 40% repeat transfer bonus! That made for some insane values on El Al travel!
If you are interested in being targeted for future promotions, you should open a Qantas Frequent Flyer account today and transfer 500 AMEX points there. Opt into email subscriptions for “Exclusive offers from our program partners” under “Interests and subscriptions” and be sure to check your emails for future targeted promotions!
