What you need to know about the Woolworths Rewards program

Find out how to earn Qantas Points at the supermarket, get cash off your next shop and save on fuel with Woolworths Rewards.

This loyalty program rewards you with points per $1 spent when you shop with partners, including Woolworths supermarkets. These points can be redeemed for cash off your next shop at Woolworths or converted to Qantas Points.

Use this guide to learn more about the program, including how to join, how to earn points, what rewards are available and the common questions people ask about Woolworths Rewards.

How to join Woolworths Rewards

There is no cost to join Woolworths Rewards and you can sign up through the website in a few minutes by following these steps:

  1. Provide your name, email address, phone number, date of birth and a password for the Woolworths Rewards Website.
  2. Provide a mailing address for your Woolworths Rewards card.
  3. Confirm your details and click on "Join Woolworths Rewards".

After that, you'll be emailed confirmation of your membership. You can then print out a temporary membership card if you want to start earning points straight away. Your actual card will arrive within seven days.

Alternatively, you can also apply to join Woolworths Rewards in a participating store. When you do this, you'll get a temporary, cardboard membership card that you can scan to earn points. You'll then need to complete your account activation online by following the steps above.

How do I earn Woolworths Rewards points?

There are three ways you can earn points for your spending at Woolworths supermarkets or BWS:

  • Shopping in person. Swipe your Woolworths Rewards membership card at the register before you pay and you'll earn 1 point per $1 spent. Note that if you forget to swipe your card at the checkout, you won’t be able to earn rewards for that purchase.
  • Shopping with your phone. You can also earn points by scanning a digital version of your membership card via the Woolworths app. You’ll just need to download the app to your smart phone or device and add your membership card information under the "More" section. Once these details are saved, you just need to click "show barcode" when holding your phone up to the register.
  • Shopping online. If you buy your groceries through Woolworths Online, you’ll be asked to fill in your Woolworths Rewards details as part of the payment process.

Earning Woolworths Rewards points at Big W

You can earn 1 Woolworths Rewards point per $1 spent at Big W. Just scan your Woolworths Rewards card when you're shopping in-store, or enter your membership number when you're shopping online at bigw.com.au. Note that you won't be able to get money off your shop through Woolworths Rewards when shopping at Big W.

What purchases don't earn points?

You can only earn Woolworths Rewards points on "eligible purchases", which includes most everyday items you'll buy at Woolworths or BWS. Purchases that are not eligible to earn points 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.

Bonus points and special offers

Woolworths Rewards provides bonus point offers and other promotions at different times through the year. Current offers are usually shared by email or through the Woolworths app. As well as personalised offers, you’ll also receive member-only deals and exclusive offers in-store, online and via email.

You can also check your current offers, view your point balance and update your reward preferences at selected Woolworths supermarkets that have a Rewards Hub. Simply scan your membership card at the terminal to access these services.

Woolworths Rewards and Woolworths credit cards

Woolworths also offers two credit cards that earn reward points for your everyday spending and double as your Woolworths Rewards membership card. We've highlighted the key details for each card below:

  • Woolworths Everyday Platinum. This 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. These points are then converted to a shopping card that you can use across participating Woolworths group stores.
  • Woolworths Qantas Platinum. This card earns 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent up to $2,500 per statement period, then 0.5 points per $1 spent for the rest of that statement period. It also includes complimentary travel insurance and exclusive platinum card offers.

What rewards can I get with Woolworths Rewards?

Choose any of the following to get the most out of your Woolworths Rewards:

  • Save at the checkout. You’ll automatically save $10 on your next eligible shop each time your balance reaches 2,000 points.
  • Stock up your points. If you don’t want to redeem rewards each time you reach 2,000 points, you can opt to bank your points to save for events such as Christmas or birthdays when you know you’ll be spending more.
  • Convert to Qantas Points. You can convert your Woolworths Rewards to Qantas Points in amounts of 2,000 Woolworths Rewards for 870 Qantas Points. This is an earn rate of 0.43 Qantas Points per $1 spent. There is no minimum spend required to earn Qantas Points, whereas the old Everyday Rewards system required cardholders to spend $30 to convert points to Qantas. If you choose to convert your Woolworths Rewards to Qantas Points, the points will be transferred on a quarterly basis on the 15th of March, June, September and December. Points may take up to 7 days to show up in your Qantas Frequent Flyer account.

How many Qantas Points can I earn at Woolworths?

If you regularly shop at Woolworths or BWS, Woolworths Rewards could help you get extra value from your spending. The range of Woolworths credit cards also offer additional value and rewards, but remember to weigh up the costs of these cards and compare a range of options so that you can find the right fit for your spending habits and needs.

    Do the petrol discounts expire after a month from the initial shopping purchase, like Coles shopper docket petrol vouchers do? I never know if i will get my 4 cent discount for petrol on any given day. Do I need to make a minimum purchase each month to get my discounted purchase? Could you please explain how the petrol discount works and how I can keep track of my petrol discount credits
    Regards

      Hi Leanne,

      Thanks for your message and for visiting finder – the leading comparison website & general information service built to give you advice in your buying decision needs. How are you doing today?

      Please see below the answers to your inquiry.
      Do the petrol discounts expire after a month from the initial shopping purchase, like Coles shopper docket petrol vouchers do?
      – Yes, you’d have to present a receipt with at least $30 or more in one transaction within 28 days to get 4c/litre for petrol discount.

      I never know if I will get my 4cent discount for petrol on any given day.
      Could you please explain how the petrol discount works
      :

      To receive a fuel discount of 4c per litre, spend $30 or more in one transaction at Woolworths and scan your registered Woolworths Rewards card within 28 days at any Caltex Woolworths co-branded fuel outlet. 

      and how I can keep track of my petrol discount credits:

      The simplest way to do this is to check your receipt. You’ll see your total balance and a message letting you know if your balance has hit 2000 and you’ve earned $10 off a future shop.
      
You can also track your balance online at woolworthsrewards.com.au, through the Woolworths app, or by calling Woolworths on 1300 10 1234 and following the prompts.

      Do I need to make a minimum purchase each month to get my discounted purchase?

      Unless you change your redemption settings , you’ll automatically get $10 off a future shop each time your balance hits 2000 points. To redeem your saving, simply spend $10 or more on eligible purchases^ in store or online at a Woolworths supermarket or BWS store (excluding Tasmania) and scan your Woolworths Rewards card. You cannot redeem your $10 saving in fuel outlets.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to message us anytime should you have further questions.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

    can i use a docket for my fuel discount and also use my rewards card to gain points on the same sale?

      JonathanSeptember 14, 2017

      Hello Michelle,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Yes, you can but the petrol station has to be Woolworths-Caltex branded. This means that if you see Star Mart or Star Shop then you will only receive the fuel discount.

      You may check the Terms and Conditions of Woolworths Rewards Program on their website for further details.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    How do I convert my rewards card to one that collects points?

    • finder Customer Care
      LouOctober 27, 2016Staff

      Hi Elliot,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you were an Everyday Rewards member and have not received a replacement card when the Woolworths Rewards program rolled in last year, you’ll need to contact Woolworths Rewards on 1300 10 1234 to order a replacement card. Once you have the replacement card, you can already start earning points.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
