Interested in some thoughts as to how best use 100,000 Qantas points. Both me and my wife have 100,000 points each. Neither of us have status at the moment - I might reach silver within the next 12 months.
In May/June 2018 we’d like to go to Europe, with a possible stop over in either Hong Kong or Dubai.
- Use our points to book as much as we can in economy and save a couple of thousand dollars?
- Pay for an economy fare, and use points for an upgrade? If we do choose this option, are only certain types of fares upgradable? And how hard is it to get an upgrade?
Not sure what kind of prices we are looking at for fares this far out - also wondering whether the difference between a sale economy fare and a normal economy fare is worth paying for the ability to then be able to bid for an upgrade.
