    Booking JQ flight + baggage using QFF points

    Looking at using QFF points to purchase a JQ ticket. Only options through Q website are Starter and Max. If I purchase Starter fare can I then purchase baggage separately on Jetstar website? The Max bundle is overkill. Starter plus some baggage would be ok.
