utu has joined hands with Qatar Airways Privilege Club to offer bigger rewards for tax-free shopping. The new partnership will enable members of the airline’s loyalty programme, Privilege Club, to boost the value of their tax refunds when they choose to receive it in Qmiles via the utu Tax Free Card.

Global shoppers usually only receive half of the total value of their VAT refunds due to processing costs. However, this collaboration rewards members with an increase of 25% in the tax refunds value, and highlights both companies’ commitment to delivering value to travelers by giving back more on VAT refunds.

A faster way to explore the world with Qmiles

Tax-free shopping is available in 50 countries across the globe, including France, Italy, Germany, Singapore, South Korea, and the UAE. With utu Tax Free Card, Privilege Club members will be able to receive more of their tax refund with any shop, any Tax Free form and any Tax Refund Operator.

Starting 14 January 2022, Privilege Club members can convert every USD 1 of tax refund to 4.167 Qmiles. This will enable Privilege Club members to get back more value out of their tax refunds and avoid the high fees imposed by Tax Refund Operators. Qmiles can be used towards award flights, cabin upgrades, extra baggage, hotel stays, car rental and much more.
