    Qantas cuts Frequent Flyer points needed for Jetstar flights
    QANTAS Frequent Flyer scheme has slashed the number of points required to book Jetstar flights by 20 per cent.
    The change means classic award seats on Jetstar flights will now start at 6400 points, plus taxes, fees and charges.

    I don't participate in either program, but when award currency becomes more valuable you have to smile. :)

    Odd.

    I've flown JetStar a few times, actually its the only source i have of QF miles, but not sure why only I got the email. Looks like my wife did not.

  6. QF haven't sent me reminder emails when the points were about to expire either, but send a lot of other marketing material
