On this episode of Points of View, we chat with Brandon Loo, a senior writer for Point Hacks. Brandon recently jetted to paradise in style, thanks to Qantas Points. He shares his tips and tricks – from planning his trip to Fiji, to making the most of his time on the ground.

We're back after a pandemic-sized break. On this episode of Points of View, we talk to Antonia Strakosch, a writer and editor for Point Hacks. Antonia just did a Business Class round trip to London on points, and dives into what it's like to travel as COVID restrictions are lifted and the world opens up. Antonia's biggest tip? Have a working printer at home.

What are your burning questions about the frequent flyer game? On the last episode of Season 1, we asked the Point Hacks audience what they’d like to ask our Managing Editor, Daniel Sciberras. From tools, status and the age old Qantas versus Velocity question, Daniel answers all.

We’ve got Keith Mason, founder of Point Hacks, back on the podcast and we’re talking about Beginners and Redemption Strategies. This is a great episode if you’re a beginner yourself or if you have friends that ask you how to get started in the points game. In the second half of the podcast we take a dive into Keith’s methods for redeeming flights, definitely worth a listen.

The team at Point Hacks travel a lot and have been fortunate enough to test out many Business Class seats. On this episode, Matt Moffitt and I run through the best seats you should be aiming for with your Frequent Flyer points redemptions.

Australians are points crazy, but mainly with Frequent Flyer points. There’s a whole world of hotel points that goes relatively unnoticed in comparison. Point Hacks Managing Editor, Daniel Sciberras is back to talk about how to get the most out of hotel points.

Point Hacks founder, Keith Mason, is back again and on this episode we’re talking travel with family. We’ll be diving into how Keith travels with his family using points, how your priorities can change when booking a seat, as well as tips & hacks to look out for.

How do you go from having close to 0 Frequent Flyer points in your account to booking a trip with 2 Business and 1 First Class flights just over a year later? A good friend of mine, Kane Richards, joins me today to talk about how he did just that and what he learned from the process. It's worth noting that the flights we discuss were booked prior to the Qantas Frequent Flyer changes that came into effect in September 2019 and at the time of recording, BP's switch to Qantas had only just been announced.

What do you do when you’ve booked a massive family trip to Europe using points and things start to fall apart? Edward Alder, who’s joining us today, found out the answer to that question first hand. It’s a pretty insane story.

The Managing Editor of Point Hacks, Daniel Sciberras, joins us today. We’ll be discussing one of the best value points redemptions you can make… a oneworld round the world booking. This can be done in Economy, Business or First class using your qantas points. Daniel covers all of the details, routes he's flown, and how you can book a trip yourself.
