1,000 bonus rewards points buying EFTPOS gift cards at Woolworths
Woolworths is offering 1,000 bonus Woolworths Rewards points for customers who buy $100 EFTPOS gift cards between 12-18 June 2019. You can easily exchange these rewards points for 435 Qantas Points. It's important to note that you'll have to pay a $6.95 fee for the card on top of the purchase price, so this is probably only worthwhile if you know you'll definitely use the points for a high-value purchase like a flight upgrade, or if you really want to give this kind of card as a gift. You can only score one lot of bonus points per household.
We've put together a handy guide on credit card gift card offers, which explains how to properly redeem them.
