Free Flights For All The Family to Fiji, Bali and Thailand!

October 10, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

According to Aussie web site, an independent platform that brings together one of Australia’s biggest communities of airline rewards enthusiasts, which says it is the best guides, deals and tips for more frequent flyer points in Australia, earning your family free return flights to Fiji, Bali or Thailand or by next February or March has become entirely possible.


Well, Points Hacks says you firstly you need to belong to an airline rewards program, but most importantly you also need to know how to leverage your existing household spending to boost your point earnings, with Point Hacks saying that there are numerous opportunities for Australian frequent flyers to earn points daily in their normal daily life and then convert them into a couple of amazing travel experiences every year.

Points Hacks says their team comprises some of Australia’s most experienced and knowledgeable frequent flyer experts, who have travelled the world using points, by doing the research and points crunching to develop their best tips to get a family of four free return flights to Fiji, Thailand or Bali, the sort of activity and research most Aussies simply fail to do, therefore also failing to maximise the generation and use of frequent flyer points.

Points Hacks says it has analysed the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program, and Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program, with for a family of four, return award economy flights from Sydney or Melbourne to these island destinations setting travellers back from around 145,000 to 225,000 points, depending on the points program and destination.

Daniel Sciberras, Point Hacks’ frequent flyer expert and spokesperson, says, “Fiji, Thailand and Bali are some of the best travel destinations for awards flight and also, the points required are relatively low and flights are generally available.”

“The first step to achieving the required points is to set up your strategy, firstly joining your chosen rewards program, assessing the credit cards that will earn you the most points – but always keeping in mind the annual fees – and then the magical key is getting your whole household involved in leveraging your normal household spending into point earnings over the next six months.”

“Then you use any combination of our hacks to boost your points further, but be aware that while you can earn the required points in six months, the transfer of those points into airline rewards may take another month.”

So, what are Points Hacks’ top ten hack for getting you and your family a free flights overseas to Fiji, Bali and Thailand?

  1. Involve the whole family through points pooling and supplementary cards. Consider supplementary rewards credit cards for your partner. Also consider family pooling, where family members who live with you could transfer their points to you. Qantas and Velocity will allow a family member to transfer you 5,000-600,000 and 5,000-500,000 points respectively each year. Velocity will also allow you to set up selected family members as contributors and you as beneficiary, so that you receive their points earnt from flying.
  2. Why not switch to a rewards credit card with a 75,000 bonus points offer? Points Hacks loves this hack, because it will get you halfway there in point earnings. The NAB Qantas Rewards Signature Card and the St George Amplify Signature Visa card each offer 90,000 bonus Qantas Points for new cardholders. The Virgin Australia Velocity High Flyer Card offers up to 80,000 bonus Velocity Points on sign up, but make sure check out the conditions on each one.
  3. Look for higher-earning credit cards. American Express tends to offer the highest point-earning cards, with every $1 you spend on the American Express Explorer Credit Card transfers you up to 1.5 Velocity Points or KrisFlyer Miles. The American Express Qantas Premium card earns you 1.25 Qantas Points per $1 spent. – a good points earning rate is 1 point for every $1 spent.  By the way, the only issue with American Express is that its cards are not always widely accepted, so you may also need a Visa or Mastercard.
  4. Consider an everyday transaction account that earns points. Choose a transaction account to have your pay deposited into, and also for everyday debit transactions. For example, the BankWest Qantas Transaction Account will earn you 12 Qantas Points for every $100 in savings kept in your account and 5 points each time you use the debit card, which is a great option for small purchases like a $3.50 morning coffee.  So, if you have $5,000 deposited into your account each month, and use your card every day, you could earn around 4,500 points in six months.
  5. Join a shopping rewards program. A rewards program such as flybuys will earn you further points for your everyday shopping and you can swipe your flybuys card at retailers such as Coles, Target, eBay, Kmart and Liquorland.  Each $1 you spend with flybuys at Coles earns you 1 point and you can convert 2,000 points to 870 Velocity Points. On a $2,000 monthly spend, you can get 52,20 points in six months. Flybuys  also frequently has bonus points offers.
  6. Consider switching to an airline rewards super fund or insurance policy or other activities. The Virgin Money Super fund earns members 1 Velocity Point for every $5 in super contributions, capped at 250,000 points. Qantas has various insurance policies that will earn you points. Its health insurance, for instance, offers up 50,000 bonus points for signing up, and 1 point for every dollar of your premium. You can earn 150 points when you download the Qantas Assure App and more points for using it to measure your daily activities like walking, cycling or swimming.
  7. Earn points just for getting home delivery. If you love takeaway, then when you Use Deliveroo for the first time you’ll earn 1,000 Qantas Points. Then you can top up your balance with 200 Qantas Points when you order at least four times in a month, so if you get takeaway once a week, in six months you’ll earn 2,200 points.
  8. Earn points on your household energy usage. Switch your household energy plan to Energy Australia through the Velocity program and earn up to 10,000 points, then 2,000 anniversary points each year.
  9. Do your shopping through partner retailers. Qantas has partnerships with retailers such as Woolworths, BWS, BIG W and selected Caltex Woolworths service stations to earn you points on spend there. For instance, every $2,000 spent at Woolworths will earn you 870 Qantas points. Velocity’s multiple partners include BP petrol stations, where you can earn 2 points per 1 litre of fuel and $1 spent in-store.
  10. Click through Qantas Mall and Velocity eStore to your favourite online shopping sites. Qantas Mall and Velocity eStore offer high point earnings on every dollar spent on numerous popular sites such as eBay, David Jones, Woolworths, Country Road, Priceline Pharmacy, Menulog and Cotton On. Log in with your rewards membership, choose the retailer, get directed to their shopping site and you can shop online as normal to earn 2-10 points for every $1 spent, depending on the retailer.

So, Point Hacks says that by simply building these hacks and tips into your daily life, your points balances will very quickly build up and you and your family will equally quickly be lounging on a beach in Fiji, Bal or Thailand…how good does that sound?
