I’m currently a bit short on the required points to redeem a Classic Reward Business Class fare to the US, and I was looking in to buying points directly from Qantas using Points Top Up.
I’m also looking at some of the credit card offers to top up my Qantas Frequent Flyer points, which obviously all come with a minimum spend requirement on eligible purchases.
From what I’ve been reading, there’s often a delay between hitting the minimum spend criteria and actually getting the points from that offer. I’m hoping to get the points and the Rewards fare confirmed and booked in ASAP (whilst they’re still available on the dates I want to travel) which is why I’m looking to use the Points Top Up.
What I was wondering is whether the direct purchase of points would be classified as an “Eligible Purchase” for the purposes of reaching that minimum spend cap? Does anyone have any experience with that and whether that would work?
