Think this a new inclusion to the Qantas website?

Looks to have particular rules:
  • Only accepts Visa/Mastercard online - others still have to call the Frequent Flyer Service Centre
  • Can only purchase up to 25% of points balance (to the nearest 500 point interval). Maximum 60k points per purchase
  • Can be purchased twice in a 12 month period
Don't quote me on this, but the rates look slightly cheaper the more points you buy?

When 'top up" points purchase was introduced in 2005 it could be done online.

Some found a way around the limiting rules so after some years they took it offline and it became a call up only service.

I note that in 2005, the maximum that could be purchase was 20K and once per membership "year" - this has now increased as indicated to 60K x 2.

20 AUD for first 500 points.

0-1000 points, 40 AUD/1000, 0.04 AUD per point.
1000-2000 points 37.50 AUD/1000, 0.0375 AUD per point.
2000+ points 35 AUD/1000, 0.035 AUD per point.

Not sure if the price drops again after that...

Can't see a thread on this, but my most recent newsletter annouced Qantas top up points can be purchased online.

There is a story under my account log in. minimum purchase 500 points for $20, maximum 60,000 point for $1425. But says there is a limit based on current points balance.
How Top-up points works
  • points may be purchased in blocks of 500
  • minimum 500 to maximum 60,000 points per purchase, depending on your current points balance
  • points may only be purchased with a specific Reward in mind
  • a maximum of 25% of your current available points balance, rounded to the next multiple of 500 points can be purchased
  • Top-up points can be purchased twice per member in a 12-month period
  • dollar amounts required for points are subject to change at any time without notice
  • you can purchase Top-up points online if your form of payment is Visa or Mastercard; to purchase Top-up points using JCB, American Express or Diners Card, please contact the frequent flyer service centre
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.

Prefer to top up my points via Qantas Wine.
Plenty of wines with bonus points... with no limit!
