Buy Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios

Qatar Airways recently moved to Avios as their loyalty currency. Avios can be freely moved forward and aft with British Airways, Finnair and other flavours of Avios without losing their value. Now, they are presenting a flash sale to buy Avios. Through June 11, 2024, Qatar Airways is offering an opportunity to purchase miles with a 50% bonus. The promotion being offered is a tiered one. The tiered offering is as follows:

  • Buy 3,000 – 15,000 Miles and get a 20% Bonus
  • Buy 16,000 – 38,000 Miles and get a 40% Bonus
  • Buy 40,000 + Miles and get a 50% Bonus

If you go through with the top end of the promotion, you could buy 375,000 miles at 5,750 USD, which is 1.53 US Cents / INR 1.26 per Qatar Airways Privilege Club Avios purchased.

The maximum number of miles you can purchase per calendar year is 250,000 (ex, any applied bonuses). Miles are usually posted to your account quickly, but at most within 72 hours.

Qatar Airways is a part of the oneworld alliance, and you can redeem for American Airlines, Qatar Airways and British Airways online while raising requests to book for other carriers. From India, a trip to/from the US/Canada (one-way) in the QSuites is just 80,000 Avios and INR 21K (or you can use the doorbuster at double the Avios). You can transfer these Avios to your British Airways Executive Club account for more options.

You should use an American Express Platinum Charge Card, Citi Prestige, or an Axis Bank Reserve Credit Card because Points.Com will process the purchase in US Dollars. This way, you will get bonus points for your international purchase.

Bottomline

Qatar Airways is offering a 50% bonus on the purchase of Avios on their latest promotion for the purchase of miles. Avios has many good uses, including flying on premium American Airlines and Qatar Airways cabins. The promotion is valid till June 11, 2024, at the end of the day.

  1. Ajay thanks for the timely article,
    Was looking at last minute fare from US-India for my close family members on 2 different dates. Have already booked flexible premium economy for around 1 lakh INR per pax.
    Travel date being June end. Was going through award seats with Qatar and found IAD-DOH-BOM business class for 96,000 avios (DOH-BOM in Q suites) & 84,000 avios (DOH-BOM with 6E).
    Actual ticket price was $4200+ On the same dates.
    Bought points with 50% bonus, and redeemed avios.
    Overall costed $1300 & 1500$ respectively for each ticket (including purchasing of avios)

  2. Is it possible to buy Europe – Doha business class using Avios and then buy Doha – India economy using cash? Will they handle bag transfer etc?

    I found that the Avios redemption is quite poor for India -> Doha and comes with high taxes.

    • @Johnny, while it was not written in the T&C expressly, maybe it was just for those with an Indian address? Why would Qatar Airways dream up a promotion and send out mailers if this were not the case? And why would I write about something that does not exist?

  3. Ajay, considering Del-europe business class ticket is for 55k miles +12k, doesn’t it make sense to buy these miles @1.16 inr, considering that one way business class ticket is not less than 115000/- inr. Points will effectively cost 75000/-? Please suggest if this calculation is correct. As I travel to Europe once or twice every year, buying these points makes sense to me.
