Buy an iPhone and earn 20,000 free Qantas Points


This clever supermarket gift card hack could make your new iPhone 15 much better value.

My favourite Apple-Qantas-Woolworths hack is active again this week, offering a fantastic Qantas Points opportunity for iPhone owners.

From now until stores close on Tuesday 14 November 2023, Apple gift cards earn 20 times their face value in Everyday Rewards points when you buy them at Woolworths.

You're limited to buying 10 cards a day, which you can spend on any purchases in Apple's own store.

If you purchased 70 $500 cards (the highest value available) across the week, you'd earn a whopping 700,000 Woolworths Rewards points.

You could then convert them (following our easy guide) to 350,000 Qantas Points – enough for a round-the-world oneworld Business Classic Reward.

Obviously, I don't imagine too many people are planning to spend $35,000 on new Apple gear this week (or any week).

But you'd still get a hefty points top-up if you decided to buy (for instance) a iPhone 15 Pro Max with 256GBGB of storage for $2,199.

If you spent $2,000 on your phone using this gift card hack, you'd end up with a healthy 20,000 Qantas Points.

This offer comes up frequently. Woolworths has run the same deal 6 times this year (in January, February, April, June, July and August).

However, this is the first time we've seen it at Woolworths since the iPhone 15 range appeared.

So if you've been thinking of upgrading before the year ends, it might be worth stashing some gift cards now.

We updated this guide on 8 November 2023 to feature the latest Woolworths/Apple offer.
