Update:The offer mentioned below has expired and is no longer available.

Owning an American Express credit card can save you money on your next Qantas flight.

Thanks to a new Amex Offer, you can save $250 when spending $1,250 or more on one or more Qantas flights.

As the Australian flag carrier pads out its route network to pre-pandemic levels, there’s no shortage of enticing ways for you to save.

The Offer

First things first, this offer is targeted, which means not everyone will find it in the Amex Offers section of their account.

The easiest way to find out is by logging into the app and heading to the Amex Offers tab. If it’s there, hit “save” and you’ll get $250 back on your account after spending $1,250 on one or more Qantas flights.

Hot Tip: Learn more about how to save money and earn bonus points in our ultimate guide to using Amex Offers.

When booking, you’ll need to consider the following restrictions:

  • You need to book your flights through the Qantas U.S. website or Qantas U.S. mobile app — purchasing through one of the Qantas international websites may deem your transaction ineligible. You have to purchase your flights online as this offer won’t work for any transactions done outside of the online reservation system.
  • The currency of the purchase must be made in USD.
  • The purchases must be made by August 27, 2023, however, your actual flights can occur after this.
  • Additional ancillary expenses such as seat assignment fees, checked baggage, and lounge access will be included in the spending threshold as long as they are though purchased at the time of booking.
  • Your flights must originate in the U.S., so this offer can’t be used for domestic flights in Australia unless, for example, you connect onto a domestic flight as part of your round-trip itinerary.

Bottom Line: You can redeem this Amex Offer on any of Qantas’ flights from Dallas (DFW), Honolulu (HNL), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), and San Francisco (SFO). The Australian cities you can connect nonstop to include Brisbane (BNE), Melbourne (MEL), and, of course, Sydney (SYD).

Best Uses of This Offer

You’ll be lucky to get a Qantas business class fares between the U.S. and Australia for less than $10,000! In which case, we’d recommend using points if you want to travel in the point end of the plane.

Otherwise, in economy, you can expect to pay somewhere between $2,000 to $3,000, so you’d definitely notice a saving of $250 here.

Hot Tip: Make sure to include your Qantas Airways Frequent Flyer membership number on your reservation so that you can earn and redeem points!

Final Thoughts

Amex Offers that save money on flights are always welcome.

We’re especially happy to see this Qantas Offer as fares between the U.S. and Australia have been notoriously high since we came out the other side of the pandemic.
