Qantas points don’t expire as long as you earn or redeem 1 point every 18 months.
Considering that the airline shut down their international operations due to COVID-19, I was surprised that they didn’t pause mileage expiration. Sure, you can just transfer in some points from AMEX, Barclays, Capital One, Citi, or Marriott, but that shouldn’t be necessary during these times.
Sure enough, Qantas sent me an email saying that because I live outside of Australia, I could have a 6 month extension on my points by clicking “Activate your extension”
The email subject is “Important information: extend your Qantas Points expiry date.” Don’t forget to click that button!
