Rewards Roundup: GoCatch, Qantas, AMEX and KrisFlyer
Four simple ways to pick up extra points, discounts and cashback on everyday purchases.
From discounts at the Qantas Store and a $20 credit with GoCatch to bonus points with American Express and another simple way to earn KrisFlyer Miles, this week's Rewards Roundup helps you maximise your points balance on everyday purchases.
Enjoy a $20 credit with GoCatch and Android Pay
GoCatch is giving customers even more reason to book their next trip with the rideshare and taxi app this month. Pay for your next GoCatch fare using Android and you’ll receive a $20 credit to use for your next trip. As we reported earlier this week, if you already have the GoCatch app, you should’ve received a push notification with the code you’ll need to enter when making the booking to receive your credit. It’s only available to the first 3,000 customers, so get in quick if you want to collect your extra credit. For more chances to save, GoCatch is also offering $5 off every ride until the end of December with the coupon code “FESTIVE5”. While GoCatch’s triple Qantas Points offer ended this week, Qantas Frequent Flyers can continue to earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on all GoCatch trips that are over $10. For more information, see our guide on how to earn Qantas Points on taxi travel with GoCatch.
Get up to 50% off at the Qantas Store
You can make your Qantas Points go further this Christmas with the latest discount offers at the Qantas Store. Available until 31 January 2017, you can enjoy up to 50% off a select list of products and brands from the Qantas Store. So, while you would’ve needed 15,120 to redeem a Nutri Ninja Slim, you’ll now only need 7,470 to redeem the same reward. You can also get 50% off Bose products, meaning you can pick up a pair of Bose SoundSport In-Ear headphones for 10,440 Qantas Points rather than 21,040 points. With over 7,000 products to choose from, you won’t be strapped for choice when picking the best way to spend your Qantas Points.
Spend $300 at Bing Lee and earn 3,000 bonus Membership Rewards
American Express cardholders can enjoy a boost to their Membership Rewards balance with the latest deal with electronics superstore Bing Lee. If you use your American Express credit card to spend $300 or more in-store or online at Bing Lee, you’ll earn a whopping 3,000 Membership Rewards points in your account. Cardholders of the American Express Explorer Card, Essential Card and the Platinum Edge Card have all received notifications about this offer, so check your inbox if you own an American Express card to see if you’ve been invited to take advantage of the deal. The bonus points offer is available to the first 3,000 AMEX cardholders who sign up, so get in fast to secure your extra rewards.
Earn KrisFlyer Miles by splurging at the KrisFlyer Spree online mall
Aussies now have another way to earn Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles on everyday purchases with the KrisFlyer Spree online mall. Similar to the Qantas Online Mall, Qantas Store or Velocity eStore, frequent flyers can shop online and earn KrisFlyer Miles with popular brands via KrisFlyer Spree. KrisFlyer is home to a variety of international brands, but you can filter by geography to find brands you can earn points with in Australia and New Zealand. You can browse the full range of partnered retailers online, but some of the reward offers include 15 KrisFlyer Miles per USD$10 spent on MenuLog, 32 KrisFlyer Miles per AUD$10 at Cotton On, 23 KrisFlyer Miles for every USD$10 spent at THE ICONIC and 19 KrisFlyer Miles spent with Apple. With partner retailers in everything from banking and fashion to health and entertainment, there are plenty of ways to pick up miles via KrisFlyer Spree.
While you can earn KrisFlyer Miles through indirect earn reward credit cards from ANZ, American Express, Citi and St.George, the KrisFlyer Spree online mall is another easy way for Aussies to earn KrisFlyer Miles on everyday purchases.
