How Many Qantas Points Are There in Circulation?
Ever wondered how many Qantas Frequent Flyer points there are in existence?

The exact number of Qantas points in the total pool is a closely guarded secret. Of course, it's also constantly changing as Qantas Frequent Flyer members earn and redeem their points.

But using publicly available information - and some educated guesses to fill in the gaps - it is possible to get a rough ballpark estimate of how many Qantas points might be out there. We can also get a sense of how this has changed over the past 15 years.

Preserve Your Points During COVID-19
8pm (AEST) on Wednesday, 15 September 2021
With many domestic travel restrictions in place and most international travel still off the cards for a little while longer, it can be difficult to maintain and redeem your frequent flyer points.

In the upcoming Frequent Flyer Solutions webinar, Matt will explain how to keep your points alive during the COVID-19 travel downturn. The webinar will include some innovative ways to redeem points in Australian and overseas frequent flyer programs within Australia & New Zealand, including on the ground.

And if you'd rather save up your points to travel overseas once borders reopen, you'll need to make sure they don't expire in the meantime! This webinar will show you how to prevent your points from expiring while travel options remain limited.

This webinar will also cover airline elite status extensions beyond 2021.

This online webinar hosted by Matt Graham will take place at 8pm (AEST) on Wednesday, 15 September 2021! To attend, you must register in advance.
