Sally McMullen 15 December 2017 NEWS


Earn bonus points with Qantas and Woolworths, win a trip to Scotland and fly in style this festive season with Emirates.

This week's Rewards Roundup is packed with ways for Qantas Frequent Flyers and Woolworths Rewards members to get more from their loyalty programs. Plus, we'll show you how you can take advantage of some Christmas perks if you're flying with Emirates this month.

Double your Qantas Points with Vodafone

Vodafone is rewarding Qantas Frequent Flyers with double points when they sign up for a new plan this month. This means that if you sign up for a Red Global Plan with a phone or a 12-month SIM Only Global Plan, you can get up to 30,000 Qantas Points. Depending on the deal you go for, you could earn 16,000 bonus points, 20,000 bonus points or 30,000 bonus points.

This will give you enough points to get a business class flight from Sydney to the Gold Coast (16,000 points), an economy trip from Sydney to Auckland (18,000 points) or an economy flight from Sydney to Hong Kong (28,000 points). This offer ends on 31 January 2018 and conditions apply.

Earn Qantas Points when you book a pet sitter

Earlier this week, Qantas announced a new partnership with Mad Paws. This means that Qantas Frequent Flyers can now earn points when they book a pet sitter, pet day care, dog walking, grooming and more. You’ll earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on Mad Paws bookings plus a flat rate of 500 Qantas Points if you’re a new Mad Paws customer.


Win a VIP golf trip to Scotland with Qantas

To celebrate Qantas Golf Club's new alliance with GolfNow, the airline is giving you the chance to win a trip for two to watch the world's best compete in the 147th Open at Carnoustie in Scotland. The VIP experience will include return premium economy flights for two from your nearest Australian capital city to Aberdeen, tickets to the 147th Open with VIP hospitality access to the Golf Channel tent, a round of golf for two at Royal Aberdeen and twin share accommodation for five nights at the Hilton Aberdeen. All you have to do is subscribe to Qantas Gold Club emails by 31 January 2018 to throw your hat in the ring.


Earn 2,000 Woolworths Rewards this weekend

The lead up to Christmas is always one of the busiest times of year, so Woolworths is rewarding its loyal members for getting their groceries organised this weekend. If you shop online via the Woolworths Rewards website and select pick up, you could receive 2,000 bonus Woolworths Rewards Points this month. That’s enough to get you $10 off your next shop!

If you’re a Woolworths Rewards member, you should’ve received an email regarding this offer this week. Just make sure you activate the promotion before you start shopping to get the bonus points. The offer ends this Sunday 17 December 2017.

Get into the Christmas spirit when you travel with Emirates this holiday season

If you’re travelling with Emirates this month, you can look forward to a festive flight and extra perks as the airline celebrates Christmas throughout December.

We all know food is one of the best parts of a Christmas celebration, so Emirates is offering festive menus across economy, business and first class. You’ll also get to enjoy goodies such as Santa-inspired macaroons, Basler Leckerli gingerbread cookies and Christmas cake.

Across business and first class, flyers can also enjoy newly designed amenity kits during December. Designed by Bulgari, the exclusive kits will include new signature Bulgari fragrances and lotions as well as other flying essentials such as dental kits and eye masks.


To get in the Christmas spirit and keep yourself entertained, you can also watch a bunch of Christmas classics like Home Alone and Miracle on 34th Street as well as holiday specials of your favourite TV shows on the flight. You can even do some last-minute shopping on board with Emirates Duty Free facilities!

These are just some of the perks you can look forward to, so check out the Emirates website for all of the Christmas perks you can enjoy on your flight. Haven't booked your Emirates flight yet? Check out our Emirates promo codes to see if you can find a better deal.
