Buy an iPhone, get 50,000 Qantas Points: The BIG W hack


Don't miss out on this limited-time gift card offer.

BIG W has jumped on board the "Apple gift card with bonus points" bandwagon, which is good news if you've been thinking about a new iPhone (or Mac).

From today until Wednesday 17 August, Apple gift cards earn 20 times their face value in Everyday Rewards points when you buy them at BIG W.

There's a maximum limit of 10 cards for this deal.

If you purchased 10 x $500 cards (the highest value available), you'd earn 100,000 Woolworths Rewards points.

You can then convert them (following our step-by-step guide) to 50,000 Qantas Points.

That's more than enough for a one-way Business Classic Rewards flight from Sydney to Auckland (41,500 Qantas Points needed for that one).

$5,000 in Apple gift cards is enough to buy a couple of top-of-the-line iPhone 13 Pro with 512GB of storage, which comes in at $2,219.

But if you're thinking about an upgrade, this is a good opportunity. We see this offer quite regularly at sister company Woolworths (most recently in late July), but it's rarer at BIG W.

Even if you're just thinking about a new pair of AirPods, a $279 card to pay for them would score you 2,790 extra Qantas Points.
