Qantas’ Easter epiQure wine deal offers 10,000 bonus points
We'll drink to a bargain with that many points up for grabs.
Looking to fill your wine cellar and boost your Qantas Frequent Flyer points balance at the same time? Qantas' epiQure online food and wine store is running one of the best bonus points deals we've seen for a while with three Easter wine dozen selections.
The most appealing is the Easter Red Dozen, which costs $282 and scores 10,000 bonus points. It includes a mixture of shirazes and cabinets, and features one of the current Qantas business lounge red wine selections, the McPherson MWC Shiraz Mourvedre 2016. The standard epiQure price for this case is $342.98, so it's a decent savings as well as offering a solid points top-up.
Alternatively, you can pick up the Easter White Dozen for $258. This is slightly less generous on the points allocation with 8,000 bonus points on offer. Finally, there's an Easter Sparkling and Rose Dozen which costs $234 and offers 6,000 bonus points.
You don't have to be an epiQure Premium member to take up the offer, though if you're not you will have to pay for delivery, which ranges between $7 and $19. epiQure members also earn 3 points per dollar spent, rather than just 1 point per dollar, so on the Red Dozen you'd pull in 10,846 points.
This is one of the rare instances where the points you can earn could be worth more than the money you spend, provided you spend your points wisely. 10,000 points are enough for an economy return flight between Sydney and Melbourne, which can cost $299 during peak periods. (You'll still have to pay taxes, but it's never worth wasting your points on those.)
The bonus points offer is available until 25 March, or until stocks of the wine sell out through epiQure. To maximise your points earned, make sure you're using a card with a high Qantas earn rate to pay for the purchase.
