There are dozens of ways to build up your Qantas Points balance that don’t involve taking a flight.

These are just some of the ways you can earn maximum Qantas Points for minimum effort.
Shopping at Woolworths

All you need to do is link your Qantas Frequent Flyer account to your Woolworths Rewards account and choose “Qantas Points”.*
Going on a shopping spree
