One of the simplest ways to earn more points is to divert your shopping to retailers who will offer you points for the purchases you were going to make anyway.
That’s why we’ve created a tool to summarise all of these retailers and bonus point opportunities into a single list.
Given there is a range of frequent flyer and credit card programs, plus more complex ways of earning points such as by buying gift cards with bonus points for online or in-store payment, earning the maximum points from purchases quickly becomes tricky.
This is why we also have yet another Point Hacks tool to help you ensure you are earning as many points as possible from your purchases. Here is the link to it:
This tool is available to the public, not just Point Hacks Community members, and collates the points earn opportunities from:
- Qantas Online Mall
- Velocity eStore
- KrisFlyer Spree
- Asia Miles iShop
- ANZ Bonus Points Mall
- Gift Card retailers at Coles/Woolworths via American Express Platinum Edge
How to use
- Search for a retailer or product category using the text search box
- Compare the possible points earn opportunities in the results table, sorting by program if needed
- That’s it—go purchase!
An example points ‘win’ from using this tool
Say you were planning on buying some clothes from Bonds. Searching for Bonds in the table will show that you can pick up over 3 KrisFlyer miles per $ for shopping through KrisFlyer Spree.
Plus, you can earn an additional 3 Membership Rewards points per $ for purchasing a Bonds gift card at a supermarket if you have the American Express Platinum Edge and using the gift card for payment, a method called ‘points stacking’.
We can’t guarantee all the earn rates and partners will be up to date 100% of the time, but we’ll do our best!
- The earn rates shown are standard, not bonused with different promotions—if there’s a promotion running, the earn rate will be different (and probably higher)
- There might be more gift cards available than what’s listed in the table
- Make sure to verify bonus points with the respective online portals before making a purchase, especially if it’s a large one
