Epiqure weren’t good at publicising all of the products on which you’ll earn a points bonus – there was no consolidated list on their website, or that goes out by email. So I thought I’d better make one. After I started publicising this list, they also launched a bonus points listing page on their site too. We update our list weekly and it shows more data than the Epiqure page, but I assume theirs could be more up to date. Use either list, whatever works for you.

What’s Qantas Epiqure?

Qantas ‘EpiQure’ is Qantas’ wine program, and offers the ability to earn thousands of bonus Qantas Points from wine purchases, usually in cases of 6 or 12.

At risk of sounding like a bit of an alcoholic when I’m not meaning to, Epiqure is one of my favourite ways to pick up bonus points. I tend to only buy wine when a bonus is offered, and not being a wine snob or one to particular around shopping around for the best wine deals, knowing that I’m getting a kicker of bonus points works for me.

Qantas Epiqure also have added a range of gourmet food at (as you’d expect) gourmet food prices – so this isn’t one to take advantage to start earning more points on your day to day groceries, but is worth bearing in mind for gifts or treats.

The full guide to Qantas EpiQure

Anyone with a Qantas Frequent Flyer membership can purchase wines from EpiQure. This guide covers both the free and and paid membership options, outlining how you can earn more points and when it’s worth going for the paid membership.

As a regular Qantas Frequent Flyer member you can access EpiQure as a regular customer with an account that’s linked to your Qantas Frequent Flyer number.

You can earn 1 bonus Qantas Point for each dollar spent, and on top of that you will receive free delivery on all your orders and receive email invites for bonus point promotions.

If you are ‘points rich’ you can also choose to pay for your wine using your Qantas Points balance, but I wouldn’t recommend it as you can get better value out of your points for upgrades or flight redemptions.

Earning bonus Qantas Points

Bonus points are usually awarded for certain cases of wines, often the more expensive options – but sometimes also on some of the more accessible mixed cases. Bonuses usually start at 2-3,000 Qantas Points, and work their way up depending on the price of the case or bottle of wine.

A previous example promotion was for a case of 3 Handpicked Single Vineyard Marsanne 2014 or 3 d’Arenberg The Ironstone Pressings Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2010 with 5000 bonus points, for $174.00 including delivery.

Epiqure Offer Email

Both wines in this bonus offer are hard to find in big retailers such as Dan Murphys, so let’s value them based on the wine-makers website. The Marsanne comes in at $57 and the d’Arenberg at $65.

Given the offers are for a case of 3, if this is a wine you’ll like this an OK deal – it’s selling for around retail, and you’ll get at least around 5,180 Qantas Points on top.

The key concept to understand is that there’s no general rule you can apply around the value of Qantas EpiQure’s pricing – sometimes it’s a good offer, especially so when the wine comes with a chunk of bonus points. But then often standard pricing can be beaten by your local wine merchant.

Other offers have included 10,000 and 15,000 Qantas Points on cases around the $250 to $300 mark.

It’s worth keeping an eye on the EpiQure sale page of their website for some of the better deals.

Qantas EpiQure Paid Premium Membership

Alongside the free membership Qantas also has a paid membership on offer. This will set you back $99 (standard pricing) with a free gift included.

The free gift at the time of writing is either a bottle of Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne which I would value at $59.99, or a bottle of Seppeltsfield NV Paramount which Qantas values at $329. This particular bottle couldn’t be found online anywhere else so take this value with a grain of salt.

As a paying member of Qantas EpiQure you’ll receive 3 points per $ spent, on top of free delivery.

You’ll also receive invites to exclusive events for Qantas EpiQure members – however these are often paid events, rather than free, and wouldn’t suit all tastes.

Here’s a write-up (external site) of an EpiQure event held in Adelaide in May 2015, for example.

There’s also a wine plan component of EpiQure, where you can opt-in to receive wines delivered quarterly based on your preferences. Joining a wine plan also comes with free paid membership, so could be worth looking at if you were considering the membership anyway.

Gaining free or discounted membership

Qantas often has some promotions running to entice you to sign up which usually come in the form of a coupon, or a free bottle of wine.

Previously coupons offering 1 year free membership have shown up. Many members commonly also receive free renewal year-on-year if they continue to make purchases.

Conclusion – Qantas EpiQure

The fastest way to earn points out of EpiQure is to look out for the bonus point promotions in your inbox and see if they meet your taste for wine to stock up on when they crop up.

Just like many people, giving wine is handy business and social custom and using EpiQure to stock up wine in this way can ensure you’re not left short.

These bonuses can quickly bump up your Qantas Point balances if earned wisely.

When there are sign up offers for the paid membership you could consider joining. With the current promotion, the membership cost is around $30 once you take into account the bottle of champagne.

If you’re not a fan of Champagne or Port then hang on for one of the “free year” coupons to show up, as the $99 fee is generally not going to be value for money.

This guide will be updated with any new promotion codes or lucrative bonus points offers as they come available.
