Case Study

Leah lives in Melbourne but is originally from Perth. Her family and friends, with exception of a few, all still live in Perth, so Leah tries to visit home at least 3 times a year.

As Leah visits a lot of places worldwide both for leisure and business, she was attracted to receiving the complimentary Frequent Flyer membership if she were to apply for the Qantas Cash Travel Card. She could earn Frequent Flyer points through her simple, personal purchases while abroad, and also earn points from her couch by using her card online.

With no purchase or monthly fees, Leah applied for her Qantas Cash Travel Card and now uses it all the time, both online and by preloading her AUD into the currencies she needs for her destination. Bonus too when Leah now gets to use her points towards her flights back to Perth!
