If you're a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, you may want to check your email as some have been targeted for bonuses when adding points to their account.

If targeted, you can receive up to 25% more Qantas Points when you transfer your rewards points to Qantas Points, as first reported by Frequent Miler. Again, this offer appears to be targeted with emails sent to eligible users, so you'll want to make sure you've received an email stating you're eligible for the bonus.

The more points you transfer, the bigger your bonus will be. You'll receive a 15% bonus if you transfer less than 500,000 points and a 25% bonus if you transfer 500,001 points or more.

Some terms do apply. The offer is not applicable to any card listed at qantas.com/cards or other card where the issuer automatically transfers your credit or charge card rewards points to Qantas Points on your behalf on a monthly basis.

If you were targeted, keep in mind that the Qantas Frequent Flyer program is a transfer partner with American Express Membership Rewards, Capital One, Citi ThankYou and Marriott Bonvoy. You can transfer Capital One miles to Qantas at a 2:1.5 ratio while Citi and American Express transfer at a preferable 1:1 ratio. For Marriott, you'll get 1 Qantas point for every 3 Marriott points you transfer, plus you'll receive a 5,000-point bonus when transferring in 60,000-point increments (i.e. 60,000 Marriott = 25,000 Qantas points).

If you do decide to take advantage of the bonus, you'll want to read how you can best maximize sweet spots in Qantas' Frequent Flyer program. Just note that Qantas isn't the most lucrative loyalty program (it has high fuel surcharges and a mediocre award chart), especially when you have the option of transferring credit card points to partners like Aeroplan, Avianca and Virgin Atlantic — all of which are some of TPG's favorites for amazing award redemptions.

You have two ways of transferring your points. Either call the number on the back of your eligible card or visit the points transfer page of your card provider's website. But don't wait, you have until Sept. 30 to take advantage of this promotion!
