In a packed boardroom at O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers, guests enjoyed a fun night with Immanuel Debeer, founder of Flight Hacks, who shared tips and tricks on earning and redeeming frequent flyer points so you never have to fly economy again.
The second in the ‘O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers Presents’ series, Immanuel presented and overview of the best airline rewards programs and the best ways of earning points in those programs. For the every day person (not running a business), Immanuel’s top tip was to sign up to a credit card offering a points bonus (while stressing that he was not giving financial advice!).
Bonus points offered with credit cards change frequently, so it’s best to check on Flight Hacks to see the current offers. One interesting point he made is that with American Express reward points, you can transfer them to any airlines (the value ratio of points differs between airlines), giving greater flexibility than being locked in to one program such as Qantas.
When it comes to redeeming points and especially for flights to Asia and to Europe, Immanuel said that Singapore Airlines offered the best value. However, earning KrisFlyer points was a little harder to do in Australia and a great tip he shared was to shop online through KrisFlyer’s shopping portal, KrisFlyerSpree. Another great tip he shared was to create a flight alert on Expert Flyer.
