Qantas Frequent Flyer and Afterpay will launch an exclusive new partnership allowing Qantas Frequent Flyers to earn Qantas Points with the Buy Now Pay Later platform.
Launching later this week, Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn up to 5,000 Qantas Points when they link their membership number to their Afterpay account.
Accounting for over 15 per cent of all online retail in Australia, Afterpay has transformed the way people make purchases by allowing shoppers to receive products immediately and pay in four fortnightly instalments, with no additional cost to them.
Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said earning points with Afterpay would be a huge advantage to the program’s large portion of ‘frequent buyers’, who maximise their points earn on everyday spend.
“Financial services is one of the most popular ways to earn points in the program, it’s the quickest and easiest way to build your points balance,” Ms Wirth said.
“With our 13 million members all having different spending habits and financial preferences, it’s great to be able to offer more options and more rewards.”
Anthony Eisen, CEO and Co-founder of Afterpay said partnering with one of Australia’s largest and most recognised loyalty programs would provide significant upside for Afterpay customers.
“We are always looking for ways to add value for our customers and this partnership between two iconic Australian brands is a great way to reward them for shopping with Afterpay.
“Now our customers can earn Qantas Points on their purchases at no additional cost, just by using Afterpay as they normally would,” Mr Eisen said.
