Qantas is back with another targeted transfer bonus.

If you received the targeted email (Subject: Transfer now for 20% bonus Qantas Points) you can get a 20% bonus when you transfer credit card points to Qantas through 12/30.

Bonus points will post by 1/15/20.

You can transfer points from AMEX, Barclays, Capital One, or Citi to Qantas with this offer.

Last month the 15-25% transfer bonus turned out to be stackable on top of the 20% AMEX transfer bonus, but there are no stackable offers now.

Qantas now partners with Air France/KLM Flying Blue for more reward flight options, though they add fuel surcharges for those flights.

You can use 37.8K Qantas points in coach, 70,800 Qantas points in premium economy, or 90K Qantas points in business for a one-way ticket on El Al between NYC and Tel Aviv without fuel surcharges, but El Al does block some of the space on the route:

Is there a way to earn the 20% bonus on Amex transfer if I never had Qantas account and I’ll be opening one now?

Yankees Fan

Got the email. Promotion does not start till tomorrow (between 20 and 30 December)

Noah32

Thanks to your advice, Dan, I was targeted for this. Perfect timing for me. Do you know approximately how long it takes for these bonuses to show up on the account? I transferred from amex and those points posted instantly. Just wondering about the bonus.

Thank you!

What’s the best way to book the ElAl flights using Qantas miles now?

united

Just in time for the retirement of their Queen of the skies. They say they have business seats avail for 108k points. That’s a little more than 90k with this promo!

Hi Dan, Thanks as usual for being so generous and helpful. I know you’ve addressed previously ElAl blocking partner business but I’m wondering, after seeing availability on ElAl’s website and not on Qantas for economy, are they blocking that as well?

“Last month the 15-25% transfer bonus turned out to be stackable on top of the 20% AMEX transfer bonus, but there are no stackable offers now.“
Do you think there will be another stackable offer soon with both AMEX and Qantas offering bonuses?

Moish

I transferred points already 3 days ago and still not seeing the bonus…..

Mike

I transfers points almost two weeks ago and no bonus posted
