How to earn points and redeem Qantas rewards and supermarket discounts with the Woolworths Rewards program.
Woolworths Rewards has replaced the previous Woolworths Everyday Rewards scheme, which launched back in 2008, offering fuel discounts and special offers. Since June 2009, you've also been able to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer Points on the card. For every dollar you spent over $30, you earned one Qantas FF point. Other Woolworths-owned outlets including Big W and BWS were also part of the scheme, though their offers weren't as generous.
As of 28 October 2015, though, the Woolworths Rewards program has superseded the Woolworths Everyday Rewards scheme and the way you can earn rewards at Woolies is slightly different. While Woolworths Rewards announced that it would no longer offer the opportunity to trade Woolworths reward points for Qantas Points, the supermarket quickly backtracked and announced that the alliance had been relaunched in April 2016. As of August 2016, Woolworths Rewards members can transfer their supermarket rewards for Qantas Frequent Flyer Points once again.

What benefits does the Woolworths Rewards card offer?
When you sign up to the free Woolworths Rewards program, you can earn 1 point per $1 spent on all eligible purchases made at Woolworths, BWS and Caltex Woolworths fuel outlets. When you reach 2,000 Woolworths Points, you can either redeem them for a $10 discount off your next Woolworths shop or redeem them for 870 Qantas Points. If you wish to transfer your Woolworths Rewards points for Qantas Points, you'll need to link the two rewards programs together. See our guide on how to earn Qantas Points at Woolworths for more information about this.
While the Everyday Rewards program required you to meet a minimum spend and Woolworths Rewards initially only applied to orange ticketed items, you can now earn reward points no matter how much you spend as long as it's on eligible purchases. This excludes smoking products, gift cards, mobile recharge, Woolworths Mobile, travel cards and tickets, delivery charges, internet cafes, Woolworths flowers, Carpet Care, lottery products and purchases using Caltex Starcard.
What's happening to petrol discounts?
The discounts offered at Woolworths Petrol stations aren't changing. You'll continue to receive an offer of 4 cents off per litre when you spend $30 or more.
What if I have a Woolworths credit card?
