Qantas Points+ aren’t the easiest the earn, and while you can transfer Citi ThankYou Points, we don’t typically recommend doing so. That said, a 25% discount on Economy Classic Flight Rewards definitely makes it worth considering. If you’re planning a trip Down Under, or if you’ve been looking for an ideal time to dust off your unused Qantas Points+, the carrier’s latest sale is worth ogling.

For five days only, you’ll save 25% on the Qantas Points+ required for Economy Classic Flight Rewards worldwide on Qantas-, Jetstar- and Emirates-operated flights with a ‘QF,’ ‘JQ’ or ‘EK’ flight number. To take advantage, you’ll need to book an Economy Classic Flight Reward between 10:00am (AEST) on Sept. 24, 2018, and 11:59pm (AEST) on Sept. 28, 2018, on flights operated by Qantas, Jetstar or Emirates. Your travel must occur between Oct. 14, 2018, and Aug. 29, 2019, on Qantas and Emirates or between Oct. 14, 2018, and June 20, 2019, on Jetstar.

During the sale, Jetstar’s nonstop between MEL and HNL costs just 21,600 points in Economy (compared to the usual 28,800).

One of the best uses of Qantas Points+ is to land flights on partners that aren’t flown by anyone else. For instance, Jetstar’s Melbourne (MEL) to Honolulu (HNL) route typically demands 28,000 points one-way in economy, but during the sale, it’ll set you back just 21,600.

If you’re wondering what exactly you’re getting into when flying Qantas in coach, we’ve got you covered: News Editor Emily McNutt reviewed the Economy experience on Qantas from San Francisco to Sydney.

If you’ve got excess Qantas Points+ to burn, where do you plan on using them?
