30% Discount on Qantas Economy Award Flights

30% Discount on Qantas Economy Award Flights

Qantas is offering a promotion offering 30% off all economy reward tickets for the next five days. The promotion launched today and will run until 11:59 pm on the 12th of March.

This is interestingly timed just a week after Virgin Australia finished a promotion offering 30% off award tickets. The only difference was that Virgin was offering the discount on ALL award tickets, rather than simply economy tickets.

Now while I wouldn't usually encourage using miles & points for economy flights as it is not all that great value, with 30% off it could be worthwhile in the right circumstances. For example, some domestic flights, which aren't really worth flying in business, are not bad value such as Melbourne to Sydney for 5,600 points each way or Melbourne to Cairns for 12,600 points each way.
