Qantas Frequent Flyer points hack – keeping your account current – updated 2020

Qantas Frequent Flyer Points Hack

If you have a Qantas Frequent Flyer account you may or may not know that you need to make at least 1 transaction that increases your point balance every 18 months to keep your account active.

If you don’t do this you will lose the points you have earned in your account.

My housemate was relating his story to me. He was given 50,000 points as a part of a sales incentive where he worked and the points were parked in his account – I doubt he knew the password to get access to this account. Where he works he gets a few of these incentives normally its mobile phones.

Anyway after a year or so he decided to check out his account and do something with the points – well the points were gone because the account had not been used for over a year.

Accumulating Qantas Frequent Flyer Points with eBay

So what is this hack that could have saved his points – well it’s ebay.

All he needed to do was log into Qantas Frequent Flyer Account go to the Frequent Flyer menu – Earn Points then – Shopping. That takes you to You then find the ebay link which will say that you can earn 1 point for each $1 you spend on ebay.

All you need to do is find a book or a DVD something cheap and then you will get the points in your account and the account stays open for another 12 months.

You need to be aware though that you need to have cookies enabled in your browser otherwise your sale won’t be tracked by Qantas Frequent Flyers.

Qantas Well Being App

Another free way to be able to keep your account active is to download the Qantas Well Being App. You also need to download a fitness app that tracks the amount of steps you’ve done. There are daily sleep challenges where you need to have a specific amount of time where you don’t use your phone.

The amount of points can add up. I’ve accumulated over 1000 points in this way although I’m really only using it to keep my account active. You can also accumulate 150 points for each friend who signs up to a maximum of 3000 points
