Money Hack: How to earn more Qantas Points at Woolworths

Posted: 24 March 2018 11:00 am

You can earn four times as many frequent flyer points on your next grocery shop with this hack.

Whether you’re booking a flight or doing the groceries, you can earn frequent flyer points on practically everything. But some purchases are more rewarding than others.

If you’re a Qantas Frequent Flyer, you probably already know that you can earn Qantas Points on your grocery shopping when you exchange your Woolworths Rewards points. Unfortunately, this doesn’t offer the most competitive earn rate when you transfer them to your frequent flyer account.

However, Qantas has announced a new way that frequent flyers can earn points directly when they shop at Woolworths online.

The hack

If you shop online at Woolworths through the Qantas Online Mall, you’ll earn 2 Qantas Points per $1 spent.

Whereas if you shop in store, you’ll earn 1 Woolworths Rewards point per $1 spent. Once you’ve racked up 2,000 Woolworths Points, you can transfer these to your frequent flyer account to get 870 Qantas Points. That boils down to roughly 0.43 Qantas Points per $1 spent at Woolies.

This means that you can earn more than four times as many Qantas Points if you shop online through the Qantas Mall rather than in store from now on. There is no real catch for shopping through the Qantas Mall either. You won’t be charged any extra fees and if anything, you can take advantage of discounts and offers exclusive to Qantas Frequent Flyers. Plus, you can also take advantage of free shipping on your first order over $100.

So, let’s say you spend $300 on groceries at Woolworths. If you shopped through the Qantas Online Mall, you’d earn 600 Qantas Points. Whereas if you exchanged the Woolworths Rewards you earn in store, you’d get 129 Qantas Points for your $300 spent at the Woolies checkout. So, the next time you need to grab some groceries, you might find it more rewarding to do it from the comfort of your own home if you're chasing Qantas Points.
