Qantas Points earned by your business can be transferred to any Qantas Frequent Flyer account3 giving you more flexibility to choose how to use your rewards including flights, upgrades and over 3,000 items in the Qantas store.

Earning Qantas Points

To earn Qantas Points, your business must first join the Qantas Business Rewards program. A joining fee usually applies, however, Westpac has arranged for this fee to be waived for eligible BusinessChoice card facilities - a saving of $89.501. All businesses with an ABN are eligible to join. Qantas Points are credited to the ABN holder's Qantas Members’ Business Rewards account within 60 days of the first eligible purchase or card account has been linked to the BusinessChoice rewards facility.

The Westpac BusinessChoice Qantas Business Rewards Terms and Conditions will detail how and when Qantas Points will be earned on card purchases and how points will be credited to the business' Qantas Business Rewards membership.
