Woolworths Everyday Rewards becomes Woolworths Rewards: Everything you need to know

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As of 28 October 2015, though, the Woolworths Rewards program has superseded the Woolworths Everyday Rewards scheme and the way you can earn rewards at Woolies is slightly different.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.

Use this guide to compare the benefits of Woolworths Rewards and the major changes to the supermarket loyalty program.

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.

Does the program offer any deals on insurance cover?

Yes it does. The following discount is on offer:

Store Discount Expiration Description Last verified Redeem
Get 10% off Woolworths Life Insurance Get up to $1.5 million in life cover and save 10% off your Woolworths Life Insurance premium if you're a Woolworths Rewards member.

Last verified 2 May 2017

In order to take advantage of this offer you simply have to:

What if I have a Woolworths credit card?

At this stage, you can still earn Woolworths Rewards points on all eligible purchases spent withWoolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card or the Woolworths Everyday Platinum Credit Card. Browse our review guides for more information on how to pick up points on your credit card purchases.

The Woolworths Rewards program works in a similar way to the Everyday Rewards program, but there are some important differences to remember to get the most out of the loyalty program. See our Woolworths Rewards guide for more information on how to earn reward points when you shop with Woolworths.

      Hi Jellybean,

      Thanks for your question.

      No, they are not to replace the Woolworths Everyday Rewards card. That promotion is for those members without an existing Rewards account.

    How do I transfer Frequent flyer points to a Velocity card?

      Sally | November 7, 2016

      Hi Carel,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, you can’t transfer Woolworths Rewards to Velocity Points.

      If you shop at Coles and earn flybuys on purchases, though, you can transfer these to your Velocity account. You can do this by following these four steps:
      1. Go to http://www.flybuys.com.au and log in to your account.
      2. Click on “My Account” and then select “Linked Accounts” from the menu.
      3. Select “Velocity Frequent Flyer” from the list of partners you can link with.
      4. Enter your Velocity membership number, full name and date of birth, then click “Add account” to complete the process.

      You can also calculate how many flybuys and Velocity Points you can earn using our calculator.

    My old card stopped working, so I sent for a new card, which I have got. The problem I have is that when I use it for discount fuel I keep getting told that the card does not work, even though I have been scanning it at Woolworths when I get groceries.
    Do I have to activate it? if so how?

    • Staff
      Sally | October 10, 2016

      Hi Robert,

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, you need to activate your Woolworths Rewards card before you can start earning points. If you picked up a temporary card in store, you’ll need to activate the card online before you can start using points.

      Otherwise, if you ordered it online, the card should automatically be activated. If this is the case and you’re still unable to earn points, you may need to contact Woolworths Rewards directly on 1300 10 1234 to report the issue.

    I did not receive a new rewards card up to date. I still use my old “everyday rewards” card and my Woolworths branch said I must get a “Rewards” card. What must I do to get a new card.

      Hello Leissa,

      Thanks for your question.

      Absolutely! that would be possible to link your husbands Woolworths everyday rewards card to yours. Here are the steps for you to do so:

      To link different Woolworths Rewards cards and share your fuel discounts:

      *Login to woolworthsrewards.com.au
      *Select ‘My Account’ in the top right corner
      *Select ‘Cards & accounts’
      *Scroll to ‘Link other Woolworths Rewards cards’

      Enter the 13-digit number and details of the card/s and you want to link.

      I hope this helps.

      thanks for your question.

      You can check your Woolworths Rewards points balance by logging into woolworthsrewards.com.au using your membership number and password. You can then select “My Account” to view your points. If you want to see how many Qantas Points you have, you’ll need to login to your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

      Hi Wendy,

      Thanks for your comment.

      Just to confirm, though, you have come through to finder.com.au, not Woolworths. Instead, you’ll need to contact Woolworths on 1300 10 1234 to inform them of the lost card.
