Woolworths Rewards and Qantas Points calculator

Calculate how many Qantas Points you can pick up on your next supermarket shop at Woolworths.

If you’re a Qantas Frequent Flyer, you could turn your next trip to Woolworths into rewards points thanks to the alliance between the airline and supermarket giant. You can also pick up points with shopping with Woolworths' partners, including BWS.

You’ll only earn Woolworths Rewards points on eligible purchases in-store or online, excluding gift cards, mobile phone cards, tobacco products, internet cafés, cash outs and selected services.

You can transfer your Woolworths Rewards for Qantas Points in increments of 2,000 Woolworths Rewards for 870 Qantas Points. This gives your Qantas Frequent Flyer currency a rough value of 0.43 points per $1 spent at Woolworths. So how many Qantas Points could you earn on your weekly Woolies spend? Use our calculator below to determine just that.

What are my Woolworths Rewards and Qantas Points worth?

Now that you’ve calculated your weekly and yearly points potential, it’s time to determine what these points are actually worth and how you can get more bang for your buck.

What are my points worth in Woolworths Dollars?

If you haven’t opted into trading your Woolworths Rewards for Qantas Points, you’ll automatically save $10 on your next eligible shop each time your balance reaches 2,000 points. This means that your Woolworths Points have a dollar value of $0.005 each. This is important to evaluate, considering you’ll need to spend $2,000 with the supermarket and its partners to earn enough points to redeem a $10 reward.

What are my points worth in Qantas rewards?

You can only transfer your Woolworths Rewards points to Qantas Points in minimum amounts of 2,000 points for 870 Qantas Points. Considering you have to spend $2,000 to rack up these points, what’s the dollar value of the rewards you can redeem for 870 points via the Qantas rewards store? Using the Qantas Points calculator, you’d need 8,000 points to fly one way from Sydney to Melbourne in economy. So, $2,000 worth of Qantas Points would get you just over 10% of the way to that particular reward. At the time of writing, and depending on what time you fly, a mid-week economy one-way flight from Sydney to Melbourne is currently worth anywhere between $109 and $455. So if you want to redeem your points for a flight, you might need to save them up for a while to get there.

Currently, you can’t redeem anything from the Qantas Store for 870 points or less. At the moment, a Qantas Q Bag Tag (worth 1,210 points or RRP AUD$29.95) is the cheapest product available through the Qantas Store. So, again, you’ll need more than the minimum transfer amount to redeem a reward from the Qantas store.

How else can I earn Qantas Points on everyday purchases?

Having the option to swap your Woolworths Rewards for Qantas Points might be a convenient way to pick up points on everyday purchases, but it’s obviously not the most cost or time-effective way to boost your points balance. If you’re looking for other ways to earn points on regular transactions, compare some of your following options:

A Qantas Frequent Flyer credit card

If you are a regular spender and want to earn Qantas Points on every dollar you spend on eligible purchase you spend both at Woolworths and elsewhere, consider using a Qantas Frequent Flyer credit card. As long as you pay your balance in full each month and the value of the rewards points you earn outweigh the costs of the card (for example, any interest you accrue or annual fees you have to pay), using a frequent flyer credit card could be a convenient way to get extra value and build up your points as you spend.

Shop with a Qantas Travel Money card

If you’d rather not use a credit card but would still like to earn points on everyday purchases, you can use a familyshoppingQantas Travel Money card to earn points in Australia and overseas. You can use the card in-store and online and have the choice to load the card with up to 11 available currencies. When using the card on eligible purchases, you can earn 1.5 points per $1 spent overseas and 0.25 points per $1 spent in Australia.

Purchase points with cash

If you don’t have enough points to redeem a reward, you can also purchase Qantas Frequent Flyer Points online. You can purchase a minimum of 500 Points for AUD$20.00 and up to 20,000 points for AUD$557.50. It’s important to remember that you can only purchase points once every 12 months, though, and you can only purchase up to 15% of the points required for your reward. Purchasing points generally has a less competitive dollar value than earning points, so you should only depend on them as a final resort if you can. You can find out more about how to purchase points to boost your balance with our guide.

      Hi Mavis,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      To check how many FF points you get from using your Woolworths Rewards card, please log in on website. Your Qantas Points will be transferred to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account* each quarter (15 March, June, September, December), but it can take up to 7 days for your Qantas Points to appear on your Qantas Frequent Flyer statement.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks for reaching out to us. Please note that we are not affiliated with any company we feature on our site and so we can only offer you general advice.

      Your Qantas Points will not expire as long as you earn or use Qantas Points (excluding family transfers or the conversion of points from Aquire) through your Frequent Flyer account at least once every 18 months. This includes earning or using Qantas Points with their program partners.

      Please contact Qantas directly to check your account and further inquire.

      Best regards,
