While Qantas might not be an airline you fly regularly, it’s important to remember that it’s is a member of the Oneworld alliance. That means you can use Qantas points to book award travel on partners such as American Airlines, British AirwaysCathay Pacific and Japan Airlines (and even non-alliance partners like Emirates) This option opens up a huge selection of airlines and award opportunities.

Qantas allows you to use points for seat upgrades as well as hotel stays, and even combine points and cash in its online shopping portal, giving you even more options to find maximum value for your points. The Qantas Frequent Flyer program is interesting because it’s also a transfer partner of American Express Membership Rewards, Capital One Miles, and Marriott Bonvoy points.
