Sally McMullen 28 April 2017 NEWS


Win a trip to Broome, earn points for parking your car and collect up to 20x bonus points on your next flight with this week's Rewards Roundup.

There are three easy ways for Qantas Frequent Flyers, Velocity lovers and fans of flybuys to get more value from their rewards in this week's Rewards Roundup.

Last chance to win a free trip to Broome to celebrate 30 years of Qantas Frequent Flyer

Qantas has partnered with Sunrise to help frequent flyers celebrate its 30th birthday with a free trip to Broome.

30 lucky winners and three of their friends will be treated to an exclusive Broome experience including a sunset dinner, overnight stay at a luxury resort and excursions (including a camel ride on Cable Beach or a Broome hovercraft tour) courtesy of Tourism Western Australia. Taking place over the weekend of 24 and 25 June 2017, the prize also includes return economy airfares with Qantas and one night’s shared accommodation at the Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa.

So, how can you score a free trip to Broome? Tell Seven in 30 words or less or via a 30-second video what “special milestone you’re celebrating and why you’d like to celebrate it with Qantas Frequent Flyer”. So, whether you’re celebrating a wedding anniversary, a graduation or finishing an eight-season series on Netflix, send your entry to Make sure to include your full name, address, email address, phone number and Qantas Frequent Flyer membership number for your chance to win!

Time is running out, though and the competition closes at 11:59pm on 30 April (this Sunday night!). Winners will be announced next week, so maybe hold off packing your suitcase until then.

Collect 1,000 bonus Velocity Points and a $50 parking credit with Wilson One Parking

Paying for parking always feels like a punishment, but collecting Velocity Points in the process could help sweeten the deal. If you're a Velocity frequent flyer and you sign up for a membership with Wilson Car Parks, not only will you be able to avoid the stress of trying to find a park, but you’ll also collect 1,000 bonus Velocity Points up front. Plus, you can save on parking costs with a $50 parking credit on sign up, too. These rewards are on top of the standard 2 Velocity Points per $1 you’ll earn when you set up an account with Wilson One.

To earn points when you park, follow these three easy steps:

  1. Select the "book a bay" option on the Wilson Parking website.
  2. Enter your desired car park location and booking details.
  3. Select Velocity under "Award program" and enter your Velocity membership number.

Earn up to 20x bonus flybuys points with partner airlines

While flybuys isn’t a frequent flyer program, you can still earn flybuys points on flights. You’ll usually earn 1 flybuys point per $1 spent on flights booked via flybuys travel, but points chasers can maximise their rewards with these latest bonus points deals.

If you book a flight with Air China by 18 May 2017 for travel until 31 January 2018, you’ll collect 20 bonus flybuys points per $1 spent on your flight. If you have a trip to Los Angeles, Fiji, Bali, New Zealand or the Gold Coast planned, you could also collect 5 flybuys points per $1 spent on flights with Virgin Australia. This offer is valid for one-way and return flights booked by 25 May 2017 and for travel until 28 February 2018.
