Score bonus points on everything from food delivery and car rentals to your next electricity bill.
This week’s Rewards Roundup is packed full of ways you can pick up extra points on everyday costs. Whether you’re ordering food through Deliveroo, booking a car rental or organising a hotel for your next getaway, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to earn bonus points with Qantas and Velocity. Plus, we’ll show you how you can win free movie passes just by scanning your flybuys card.
Order Deliveroo and supersize your rewards with 200 bonus Qantas Points
For the last year, Qantas Frequent Flyers have been able to collect 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent with Deliveroo. But did you know that if you order four or more times in a calendar month, you’ll pick up a bonus 200 Qantas Points?
Plus, if you download the Deliveroo app and link it to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account before you make your first order, you can pick up a tasty bonus of 1,000 Qantas Points.
Earn bonus Velocity Points on car rentals
Velocity Frequent Flyers can now earn 4 points per $1 spent on car rentals with Europcar. This is an increase of 1 point and is now on par with Qantas’s offering. To celebrate, if you make a booking on or before 7 February 2018 for hire until 15 February 2018, you’ll have the chance to land 1 million Velocity Points. There are only four 1 million point prizes up for grabs, but you’ve got to be in it to win it!
Check out our guide on how to earn Velocity Points on car rentals for more ways to pick up rewards on your next road trip.
