Earn bonus points on everything from flights and grocery shopping to recycling with this week’s Rewards Roundup.

This week's Rewards Roundup is packed with ways you can score bonus points on everyday activities with Qantas Frequent Flyer, Virgin Australia's Velocity and Woolworths Rewards. Discover four new ways you can lift your points balance on everyday activities below.

Score 50% more Qantas Points when you book flights this weekend

With summer fast approaching, hopefully you have some holiday plans on the horizon. Qantas is giving its frequent flyers another reason to book their flights this weekend with its latest bonus points offer. If you book an eligible flight with a QF flight number on Qantas, Jetstar and selected airline partners, you'll get 50% more Qantas Points. Just make sure you book your flights by 20 November 2017 for travel until 28 September 2017.

Earn Qantas Points when you recycle your coffee cups

To celebrate and raise awareness of National Recycling Week, Qantas Business Rewards has partnered with Simply Cups to reward frequent flyers with points when they recycle their coffee cups.

Simply Cups has created a technology that removes the plastic lining from paperboard coffee cups, allowing them to be recycled. To encourage Aussies to support Simply Cup and sustainable coffee cups, Qantas Business Rewards is rewarding its members with the following points:

  • 1 Qantas Point for every two Simply Cups branded (or co-branded) coffee cups purchased.
  • 1 Qantas Point for every two coffee cups collected and recycled (where available) by Simply Cups.
  • 1,000 Qantas Points for each Simply Cups collection container purchased.

Not only is it a great way to reduce wastage, it’s also an easy way for small businesses to earn Qantas Points. Check out our coverage of the partnership for more details on how you can earn points the next time you recycle.

Two weeks to get up to 30% bonus Velocity Points

This month, Velocity is giving its frequent flyers the chance to boost their balance with the Points Exchange Expo. If you transfer your reward points from your partnered credit card, hotel rewards or flybuys account to Velocity Points by 30 November 2017, you could score 15% bonus points in your account. If you have an ANZ Rewards credit card, you’ll also get an extra 15% points, bringing the total bonus bounty to 30% more points.

Some of the partnered rewards programs include American Express Membership Rewards, NAB Rewards, Citi Rewards, Hilton Honors and Starwood Preferred Guest. You can see our coverage of the points expo for more information about how you can get more Velocity Points this month.
