Hi, so yesterday I received an email from Qantas offering points top up to purchase. At the top level they are offering 50% bonus points. I’m pretty sure this is happened in the past but I haven’t been in a financial position to take advantage of it. At the moment I am in such a position. Compared with many of the people on this forum I know nothing and I’m seeking your advice. The way I see it if I bought 150,000 points it would cost me $4000 and I would get a bonus 75,000 points. This would seem to be enough for a first class one-way classic rewards flight to London from Melbourne which would normally cost a great deal more than $4000. Now I know that nobody in their right mind would want to fly to London at the moment but I’m hoping I’ll be alive for a few more years and that that will become a possibility again. So this seems too good to be true and such things usually are. Please tell me what’s wrong with my thinking here. TIA.
