The Qantas Online Mall is once again offering double points on purchases at David Jones and The Iconic. Normally, these stores offer 5 points per dollar, however, under two separate promotions there are 10 points per dollar up for grabs. Note that they are different promotions, and have different eligibility dates. David Jones has the longest promotion, running through to Christmas Eve.
Remember, that in order to receive points under these offers, you need to start at the Online Mall. Once logged in, you click through to the retailer of your choice.
Of the two promotions, the David Jones has the longest time frame. It is applicable to all purchases made through the online mall until 23 December, 2017.
The Iconic is has a shorter offer period. For purchases made between 6 November and 19 November (inclusive), there will be 10 Qantas Points per dollar on offer.
These offers are quite similar to offers made at this time last year.
How the Qantas Online Mall works
The Qantas Online Mall is a form of affiliate marketing, whereby Qantas Frequent Flyer ‘refers’ you to an online store. You first log in to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account at the mall, and then you click through to the online store of your choice.
After you have shopped at the online store, details of the transaction are sent back to the Qantas Mall. The transaction details are then matched back to your Qantas Frequent Flyer number. Once everything is confirmed (which may take some weeks), Qantas will award the appropriate number of points to your account.
This means that you do have to start from the Qantas Online Mall in order to earn points. You shouldn’t go directly to David Jones or The Iconic sites if you want to earn points. If you do go directly to the retailers site, there will be no way to associate the transaction with your Qantas Frequent Flyer number.
