Quantas reward bonus with Citicards

Quantas reward bonus with Citicards

    Just logged into my Citi Prestige acct. and see a 25% bonus until April 14- have never used the Qantas program. Is there any value to using it with this bonus?

    Thanks

    Welcome [USER=5071]@ZumaStar[/USER] – maybe, but it just depends. The Qantas award chart is typically not as friendly as the AA award chart. If you’re looking for intra-Australia flights you’ll almost certainly be better off using AA miles than QF. Where it could be helpful is if there’s no saver award space but you can still use QF miles to book a flight. QF charges miles based on the flight distance which makes them typically a bad deal. For example, just within Australia you can fly from Sydney to Perth using AA miles for 10K/20K each way (econ/bus). But using QF miles that’s 12K/24K each way for a distance of 2041 miles. However, QF will let you book premium economy on their flights whereas AA will not. But booking longer flights you’ll see more of a discrepancy.

    If you don’t have explicit plans for the miles, I would not transfer them.
