Optus is killing its partnership with Qantas Frequent Flyer, meaning that customers paying their bills with the telco will no longer earn them reward points on the Aussie airline.
Optus announced the decision to pull out of Qantas Frequent Flyer today, saying that the move is part of an impending Optus Rewards refresh.
“The two companies are using the end of the agreement to enhance their loyalty offering in different ways based on what their respective customers most value,” Optus wrote in an announcement today.
The pair first partnered up in 2011 with a deal that saw Qantas Frequent Flyers earn points for being Optus customers. The more you paid on your bill, the more points you’d receive.
We’re of the understanding that Qantas is exploring new telco partners for its Frequent Flyer rewards program.
