Qantas Frequent Flyer has partnered with Quandoo, a restaurant booking platform, to revive Qantas Restaurants. From today, you can earn 100 Qantas points per diner when reserving a table at over 18,000 restaurants on the Quandoo platform.
Today’s launch of the all new Qantas Restaurants coincides with the end of Qantas’ partnership with Rockpool Dining Group. This agreement officially ends today, although in reality many Rockpool restaurants already stopped awarding Qantas points more than a month ago.
To earn 100 points per diner when reserving a table through Qantas Restaurants, you’ll need to visit the Qantas Restaurants website and log in to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. Then, click through to the Quandoo website to make your booking, ensuring cookies are enabled. Qantas Frequent Flyer promises that you’ll receive your points within 7 days of dining.
You’ll also soon be able to earn points for restaurant bookings made via the Qantas app.
One of the interesting features of the new partnership with Quandoo is that you can also earn points for booking restaurants outside of Australia. Quandoo offers restaurant bookings in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Austria, Germany, Finland, Italy, Luxemburg, Switzerland, Turkey, the Netherlands and the UK.
AFF members have mixed opinions about the Quandoo partnership, but are mostly happy with it…
In my view, not as good as the previous arrangement. There seems to be less variety of options. In saying that, hubby and I had made some bookings through quandoo through cashrewards and have enjoyed the $4 off. I guess for some work related stuff or weekend eating out where possible, it is a nice way to rack up some extra points.
This is great news and contrary to another point of view the selection of restaurants is significantly greater than what it was before.
Qantas Frequent Flyer’s previous partnership with restaurant booking service Dimmi ended in December 2018.
Qantas Restaurants is now the easiest way to earn frequent flyer points when dining out in Australia after Velocity Frequent Flyer ended its partnership with OpenTable last month.
