Flash sale: Buy Qatar Airways Qmiles from 2 cents each

For 2 days only, get a 50% discount when you top-up your Qatar Airways Qmiles balance from as little as 5,000 miles, but you must have earned in the past to be eligible.

Qatar Airways is offering a 50% discount when you buy or gift its Qmiles, giving you the opportunity to top up your balance in this newly revalued frequent flyer programme from just 1.5 US cents per mile (around 2 Singapore cents per mile).

You can buy up to 250,000 Qmiles per calendar year, which is also the purchase limit during this bonus promotion.

The good thing about this promotion is that the 50% discount kicks in at only 5,000 Qmiles purchased, which is great if you just need a small top-up.

Here’s how the cost of Qmiles looks under this 50% discount offer:

Miles purchased Usual
Cost per mile
Cost per mile
1,000 – 4,000 3.50 US ¢ 3.50 US ¢
(no discount)
5,000 – 10,000 3.50 US ¢ 1.75 US ¢
11,000 – 25,000 3.30 US ¢ 1.65 US ¢
26,000 – 250,000 3.00 US ¢ 1.50 US ¢

For purchases of 5,000 miles or more, this 50% discount means you’re effectively getting a 100% bonus (twice as many miles per dollar spent).

Notice how the price banding leads to the strange situation where buying 25,000 miles is actually more expensive than buying 26,000 or 27,000 miles!
