From getting cash off your next shop to earning Qantas Points and saving money on fuel, here's how Woolworths Rewards works.
Woolworths Rewards is a loyalty program that rewards you when you shop at Woolworths supermarkets, BWS and Caltex-Woolworths co-branded service stations. It allows you to earn 1 point per $1 spent with program partners when you scan or provide your membership number, which can be redeemed for cash off your next shop or for Qantas Points.
You'll also be able to accumulate fuel discounts for use at Caltex Woolworths co-branded service stations and enjoy special offers for bonus points throughout the year.

How do I earn Woolworths Rewards points?
Whenever you’re shopping at Woolworths supermarkets, BWS or Caltex Woolworths fuel outlets, swipe your card at the register to earn 1 point per $1. Alternatively, you can scan a digital version of your card via the Woolworths app. You’ll just need to download the app, enter your card information and click "show barcode" when holding your phone up to the register.
When shopping with Woolworths Online, you’ll be asked to fill in your Woolworths Rewards details as part of the payment process. Note that if you forget to swipe your card at the checkout, you won’t be able to earn rewards for that purchase.
How to earn bonus points
Use the Woolworths Rewards app and check your inbox to check exclusive bonus offers on your favourite and frequently bought items. As well as personalised offers, you’ll also receive member-only deals and exclusive offers in-store, online and via email.
Purchases that won't earn Woolworths Points
Eligible purchases do not include 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.
Woolworths Rewards and Woolworths credit cards
Woolworths also offers two credit cards that double as Woolworths Rewards cards and offer points for everyday spending. The Woolworths Everyday Platinum Credit Card offers 3 points per $1 spent on Woolworths brand products, 2 points per $1 spent at participating Woolworths Groups stores and 1 point per $1 spent elsewhere, while the Woolworths Qantas Platinum Credit Card earns 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent up to $2,500 per statement period, then 0.5 points per $1 after that.
Both of these cards also include your Woolworths Rewards barcode and number on the back, below the signature panel. This means you can just scan the back of your credit card if you're paying with plastic. In addition to these features, you can also take advantage of platinum benefits such as complimentary insurance and a concierge service.
