HI all

I saw this today


https://www.qantas.com.au/fflyer/do...edm:151014:button:findoutmore&code=FAMILYFREE

and thought that it mightbe an idea to have my family members sign up and then transfer over the points. However one needs to find a low cost, preferably free, way to accrue 10,000 points in 3 months. The Bankwest debit card offer springs to mind but it is doubtful whether the points would credit within the 3 month timeframe. I've look around but apart from the ANZ life insurance promoton (which still costs a bit) I haven't found anything cost-effective.

Is anyone aware of a sutable freebie or very low cost promotion whereby one could easily pick up 10,000 qantas points?

cheers Peter

Discussed this with a few last night, if you have a family member with an ABN who is not yet a member of QFF or Acquire, you could combine both programs promos for 30K, so pinup for 10K with QFF, Sign up for 10K with Acquire then spend a couple of dollars at Staples to get a further 10K.

Unfortunately my wife and kids aren't in business. I suppose I could always ask my kids to start selling lemonade and register with an abn :)

Another option is to purchase wine through Epiqure, new members get 2K bonus on the first dozen, 8K on the fourth.

Thanks. Only problem is that the authorities might get a bit concerned seeing my kids order crates of wine. :)

You could always say they are ordering in advance and cellaring the wine for their 21st birthdays. See, I'm am ideas man.

Take the whole family to New Zealand in one way Business Class, coming back First Class or vice versa with Emirates but with Qantas flight code? Not cheap, but is one way of doing it.
Not that you have to do that, but thats a way to build up a good opening frequent flyer amount.
Are the kids over 16? Qantas Cash Card is another way, points go to Qantas Frequent Flyer account few days after end of month that transaction occured.

Just a quick one regarding this, would a transfer from Aquire to QFF be eligible for this offer? ie transfer 10k from Aquire to QFF and earn another 10k bonus?

I thought the T&C's excluded only family transfers?

Credit card offers and acquire transfers are surely not a family transfer.
I quoted the wrong post, it should work but so should the toolbar just to be sure.

any reason why a $1000 Qantas voucher wouldn't meet the criteria?
Of course that is provided the points arrive within 3 months...

Had a friend call me last week asking if he could give me his points for a flight he's taking to the US. He didn't have a FF account, but I quickly did the maths and told him where to sign up, his flights will earn just over 10k, giving him the bonus and potentially helping him out with future flights. It's a very nice promotion :)
