    Hi. I joined up here to get information about Frequent Flyer Points. I keep hearing about friends' continued success using points for airfares but I am completely ignorant as to how one acquires the points in the first instance and then once you build up a bank of points, how do you spend them on air fares?!!! I am not a regular traveller but do earn points on my ANZ Telstra Viza and as my sons are now leaving the nest, my husband and I might just have some extra time to think about flying somewhere different. I'm sure any info will set me on the right track. Thank you.

    Susan :confused:

    Hi there & welcome to AFF!

    1) spend more on the CC = more points accumulated

    2) join a FF program (i assume the ANZ CC is linked to QFF)

    3) more points you have = more flight trips redemption

    4) check seat availability for award redemption

    5) if available for FF award, book ticket & pay taxes

    6) to increase FF accumulation, start flying more (as your kids have left the nest) as eligible sky miles earn you FF points - also depending on the FF program, spend more at their program partners.


    Hope this helps!

    Wel fisrt thing to do as I assume you are not QFF members is to have BOTh your husband and yourseld get an Earth card if you qualify..
    http://www.frequentflyer.com.au/community/other-credit-card-rewards/earth-bonus-15-000-qantas-10603-5.html#post138503


    This current deal gives you FREE membership to the QFF, saving $82;50 each...plus the AMEX card will double your earn rate from 0.5 to 1.0.

    PLUS 15,000 points each = 30,000 points . So a great start.


    READ as many strings on this forum as you can....also havea look at the QANTAS ways to earn points section Frequent Flyer - Earning Points
