Qantas Business Rewards vs Qantas Frequent Flyer
Instead of earning points directly to your personal Qantas Frequent Flyer account, Card members will earn points in their Qantas Business Rewards account (free to join) which is linked to the company ABN.
This means that a business with multiple employees can pool the total points in the business account and from there distribute them to anyone they wish. If you’re not already a Qantas Business Rewards member, they joining fee of $89.5 is waived when you sign up online.
This offers more flexibility to the business owner who can decide how the points are spent. Since they can be sent to anyone with a Qantas Frequent Flyer number, they can be used as a company incentive for example.
