    Can anybody please enlighten me on what constitutes an eligible purchase from qantas in order to redeem the free return flight with the Amex Qantas Ultimate card? I do not need to purchase any qantas flights for the next few months but am hoping to book my free return flight soon.

    Does buying 500 points for $20 count?

    Also, what is availability like when booking the return flight? Is it easy enough to get seats fri/sun night?

    Thanks in advance

    I think it's any charge from the Qantas merchant account. so yes buying points or paying a change fee should count.

    Re availability, the "free flights" are available when the $112 (Mel-syd) or equivalent flights are on offer. However you can pay the difference in cash to book a flight at a different time.
