Complete guide to Qantas Wine and earning bonus points

Earn Qantas Points when you indulge in a premium selection of wine and food.

Formerly known as Qantas epiQure, Qantas Wine rewards frequent flyers with points for every $1 they spend on premium wines, spirits and food at the online store. Qantas Wine also regularly runs bonus points deals, making your next wine purchase even more rewarding.

Discover how the store works and how you can take advantage of the offers to boost your points with your next wine purchase.

How to earn Qantas Points at Qantas Wine

Qantas Wine is an online store for wine enthusiasts and foodies who want to earn frequent flyer points for every $1 they spend.

Exclusive to Qantas Frequent Flyers, you can visit the online store and earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent when you purchase any of the award-winning wines, mixed cases, spirits and food on offer. The store also regularly offers bonus points promotions, sometimes allowing you to earn up to 15,000 bonus points at the checkout. This can mean that buying wine is actually cheaper than buying points directly if you want to top up your balance to score a particular reward.

Plus, if you're paying with a Qantas Frequent Flyer card, you can double dip and earn Qantas Points both with your card and through the online store. If you have a card that offers 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent, your points potential could increase to 2 to 4 points per $1 spent at the checkout.

You can filter your selections by your preferred wine (such as red wine, white wine, champagne and sparkling or mixed cases), grape varieties and price range. You can also filter your options by sale items and bonus points offers.

After you’ve checked out, you can expect your Qantas Points to appear in your account within six weeks.

Getting a premium membership

You can also take advantage of exclusive bonus points offers if you’re a Qantas Wine premium member. It costs $99 to sign up and you’ll earn 3 Qantas Points per $1 spent. Members also receive exclusive invitations to gourmet food and wine events around Australia. As a premium member, you can also pick a preferred joining gift at the checkout to give you an idea of what you can expect from the program.

You can score a premium membership for free if you join Qantas Wine Club which is a no lock-in subscription service that will deliver hand-picked wines to your home every 3 months. As you receive a premium membership you can also earn 3 Qantas Points per $1 spent on wine in the subscription.

Buying wine with Qantas Points

You can also use your Qantas Points to purchase wine through the store, but it’s probably not the most valuable way to spend your points. As an example, you can purchase a bottle of Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Merlot 2018 for $65 or 11,310 Qantas Points at the time of writing. You could redeem an economy flight from Melbourne to Sydney (8,000 points) for fewer points than that.

If you do want to use your Qantas Points to buy wine, look out for the “Classic Wine Rewards” logo when you’re browsing the online store. This is because you’ll receive exclusive discounts of up to 40% off when you purchase a Classic Wine Reward using your points. Then when you’re checking out, you can select to pay with Qantas Points.

Who can access the store?

You must be a Qantas Frequent Flyer aged 18 years or older to shop at Qantas Wine. If you’re not already a Qantas Frequent Flyer, you can sign up for free at the Qantas Wine checkout and avoid the $99.50 joining fee. You can check out Finder’s guide to joining Qantas Frequent Flyer for free for more ways to join without forking out for the membership fee.
