New Everyday Rewards Qantas credit card




Woolworths, HSBC, MasterCard and Qantas deliver Australians one combined loyalty/credit card and a stack of points


Customers will soon be able to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points by the trolley-load when Woolworths launches the Woolworths Everyday Rewards Qantas credit card on November 1st. (1)


With a low annual fee of $89, the new credit card is one of the best value frequent flyer rewards cards in the market, offering customers one Qantas Frequent Flyer point per $1 spent anywhere MasterCard is accepted.


The single card also serves as a combined Everyday Rewards loyalty card as well as a credit card which means customers shopping at participating stores in the Woolworths Group have the opportunity to turbo charge their Qantas Frequent Flyer points for the same spend.


For example, a customer who spends $230 on groceries in one transaction at a Woolworths supermarket (excluding Tasmania) could earn 430 Qantas Frequent Flyer points as follows:

  • 230 Qantas Frequent Flyer points earned by using the credit card (no minimum spend).
  • 200 Qantas Frequent Flyer points earned from the Everyday Rewards program (1 point per $1 above $30 minimum spend) by scanning the barcode on the back of the credit card.

If repeated each week, Woolworths’ grocery purchases alone would equate to more than 22,000 points a year which could be redeemed for $150 worth of Woolworths gift cards, a Bose Companion 2 Multimedia Speaker or a return Economy Classic Award flight on Qantas from Sydney to Brisbane (2) 


The launch of the affiliated credit card further cements the Woolworths and Qantas loyalty alliance and provides customers with even more ways to earn tangible rewards, just for shopping as usual.


General Manager of Woolworths Everyday Rewards, Peter Burgan said: “The Woolworths Everyday Rewards loyalty card program has gone from strength to strength with more than 5.4 million registered members, of whom 3 million have also registered to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points.” (3)


“Woolworths is firmly focused on providing the best possible value to customers across all our brands and services, whether it’s a basket of groceries, a mobile phone plan or a rewards credit card. Since the launch of the Woolworths Everyday Rewards program, millions of our customers have come to value Qantas Frequent Flyer points and this credit card offers them a simple way to receive even more value from everyday purchases,” Mr Burgan said.

Qantas Frequent Flyer Chief Executive Simon Hickey said “Qantas Frequent Flyer is committed to making it as easy as possible for our members to earn points and providing them with as many ways as possible to use those points. The Woolworths Everyday Rewards Qantas credit card is another great way our members can earn points by doing their everyday shopping.”
