first_imgQantas Cash makes overseas spending more rewardingQantas Frequent Flyer members will be able to earn more Qantas Points when they spend money overseas using the card, as well as access more competitive exchange rates when they pre-load currency onto their Qantas Cash card.Qantas Cash users will earn 50 per cent more Qantas Points than they did previously, earning 1.5 Qantas Points for every $1 they spend in foreign currency (previously it was 1 Qantas Point for every $1 spent in foreign currency).For example, spending $7,500 overseas would deliver a reward of 11,250 Qantas Points (up from 7,500 points previously), which is enough for an Economy Classic Flight Reward from Sydney to Melbourne.Qantas Cash is built into their existing Qantas Frequent Flyer card, making it a convenient way for members to carry cash while they travel and one less card to carry.“As Australia starts to experience cooler climes, we see more Qantas Cash users escape overseas in search of some summer sun so we’ve increased their opportunity to earn more points and access better exchange rates on preloaded foreign currency,” said a Qantas spokesperson.“Going on holiday overseas can be expensive with most of us generally spending more than we would at home. We want Frequent Flyers to know they can get great value using their Qantas Cash card. They have the flexibility to lock in their exchange rate before they go or simply load it with Australian dollars and use it worldwide.”The improvements come in time for the peak travel season when Australians head overseas to enjoy summer in the Northern Hemisphere. From June to September, there is an increase of more than 50 per cent in foreign currency spend on Qantas Cash cards compared to the previous three months.The top destinations where Qantas Frequent Flyers are spending the most using theirQantas Cash card are:US,UK,Italy, andFrance.
