Australians now have the opportunity to turn their fitness journey into the trip of a lifetime, with Snap Fitness coming on board as the first health brand to offer Qantas Points as part of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program.

All Snap Fitness members will earn 100 Qantas Points each month, plus new Snap Fitness members will also receive 3,500 bonus points when signing up for a 12 month membership or 1,000 bonus points for new month-to-month plans.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Lesley Grant said the partnership with Snap Fitness was a 'first' for Qantas Frequent Flyer.

“We offer over 15,000 opportunities to earn points for activities other than flying, but Snap Fitness joining the program is particularly exciting because never before have we had a gym as part of the program,” Ms Grant said.

“If our members like to keep fit, they may as well work-out at a Snap Fitness gym because by doing so their points balance will also get a healthy kick along each month.”

Snap Fitness CEO Andy Peat said: “We want our members to feel even more special about being a part of the Snap community and being able to reward their fitness with Qantas Points is a great step.”

“Many Australians already have a gym membership but when their membership comes up for renewal, I'd certainly hope they would consider us so they can start earning points,” he said.

“We know that, these days, life is busy. Our members are busy people and that's why our gyms are open 24/7 to cater for all kinds of schedules.

“We have over 170 gyms around Australia both in cities and rural areas, plus 1,700 clubs globally. So regardless of where you happen to be, you don't have to forgo your exercise regime. And our members can expect the same state-of-the art equipment overseas or interstate, as they experience at home,” he said.

“I think that being associated with Qantas Frequent Flyer absolutely gives us a competitive edge when you consider the high value that Australians place on collecting Qantas Points – and why wouldn't they?

“We are all about rewarding fitness and we can do that by giving our members something really valuable to them, and that's Qantas Points,” Mr Peat said.

Ms Grant said savvy Frequent Flyer members earn Qantas Points across their everyday spend.

“It's amazing how quickly your points can accumulate if, for example, you've got a points-earning credit card, you buy your wine from Qantas epiQure, you shop through our Online Mall with brands like David Jones, and you make your dinner plans via Qantas Restaurants.

”And of course today's announcement means you can start earning points from the moment you wake up and hit the gym,” she said.

“Most of our members tell us that the reward they're saving for is flights or upgrades, but there are also many less well-known ways to redeem points including on kitchen appliances, iPads, Garmin Vivofits, Bugaboo prams and magazine subscriptions.”

Today's announcement follows a number of new opportunities for members to both earn and use Qantas Points. In the past six months, Qantas Frequent Flyer has introduced points earn on movie vouchers redeemable at over 200 cinemas nationally, the ability to use points to hire a car in Australia and New Zealand with Avis and Budget Car Rental and added over 20 popular retailers to the Qantas Online Mall.
Background:

  • Existing Snap Fitness members need to link their Frequent Flyer membership to their gym membership. This can be done at their local club.
  • To receive the 3,500 bonus points on a 12 month membership you must pay in-full upfront.
  • Qantas Points can be earned with Snap Fitness from 8 August 2015.
