There are many ways how you can earn Frequent Flyer Points without Flying. In Australia we are blessed with many reward cards and Shopping Programs where we can earn a lot of Frequent Flyer Points, whether that Frequent Flyer Program is Qantas, Velocity or Kris Flyer…..

I will run through some of the options to get you earning more points. Points and Miles are everywhere! There are a million ways to collect them and there are huge bonus opportunities to be taken advantage of.

The quickest way to accumulate points/miles is by by signing up for a credit card especially when there are so many Credit Cards around that offer Sign up Bonuses, turning every single purchase into miles. You can also earn points by dining out, paying bills, online shopping, staying in hotels and renting cars.

Dining Out

There are many reward Programs that offer you extra points for dining out, such as the Citibank Credit Card. Qantas also offers 200 Points per dinner when you book a restaurant through Qantas, plus use your Credit card to pay for the dinner to get even more points.


Many Frequent Flyer Programs offer you extra points by simply logging in to their frequent flyer program and then clicking through to one of their Affiliate partners. For Example by simply logging into QANTAS.com you can earn points for simply shopping on ebay. Link your PayPal account to your awards credit card to get even more points!

Staying at Hotels

Again Many Frequent Flyer Programs offer extra Frequent Flyer Points by simply booking your Hotel through their Website. QANTAS runs promotions all the time, check out their website to see what they have at the moment. Also don’t forget to sign up to multiple Hotel award Programs where you can earn further points by simply staying at one of their Hotels. Many of the Hotel award Program Points you can also transfer back to many Frequent Flyer Programs such as Qantas, Velocity, Kris Flyer, Asia Miles etc etc.
