Woolworths’ Everyday Rewards program and Qantas Frequent Flyer are partners, much like Flybuys and Velocity Frequent Flyer offer points when you shop at Coles.

However, Everyday Rewards has fewer earning and redemption partners compared to Flybuys. Both programs have the same 2:1 redemption value. You can convert 2,000 Everyday Rewards points to 1,000 Qantas Points and 1,000 Flybuys points to 500 Velocity Points.

We take a look at the two options you have for redeeming your Everyday Rewards points and which one holds better value.

Everyday Rewards transfer to Qantas

At Point Hacks, the main option we’re interested in is converting your supermarket spend to Qantas Points. To do this, head to ‘My Account’ and choose the Qantas Points option, as below.

Choosing Everyday Rewards reward option
The choice is yours when it comes to redeeming your points.

This means that whenever your Everyday Rewards balance reaches 2,000 points, it will automatically transfer to 1,000 Qantas Points. This is similar to Flybuys, where your points accumulate and auto-transfer to Velocity when you reach 1,000 Flybuys points.

The value you get out of your Everyday Reward points will depend on how you use your Qantas Points. With easy Economy redemptions, you might get 1c per Qantas Point, which is 0.5 per Everyday Rewards point. 

But if you got a high-value premium cabin redemption, you will get a lot more out of your Qantas and Everyday Rewards points. 

For example, take a look at Melbourne to Perth in Business Class. A sale fare is $1,731 one-way, or 41,500 Qantas Points and a $44 co-payment. This values each Qantas Point at 4.06 cents each.

Maximise the value of your points with a premium cabin redemption.

If you converted 84,000 Everyday Rewards points to 42,000 Qantas Points to book this award (not an impossible amount to accumulate), you would be getting around 1.9 cents of value per Everyday Rewards point – nearly four times what you’d get at the checkout.

Tip: ‘Bank for Christmas’ hack with Qantas Points

Want to time the Qantas Points transfer right so you get maximum benefit towards Points Club?

From 2 January each year, choose ‘Bank for Christmas’ to accumulate Everyday Rewards points in your account. These points won’t be spent or redeemed. Then, when your Qantas membership year restarts, simply change your preference from ‘Bank for Christmas’ to ‘Qantas Points’ to get all of your accumulated Everyday Rewards points converted into Qantas Points at once!

Discount at checkout

The only alternative to earning Qantas Points is to redeem your Everyday Rewards points for money off your shop.

There are two variations – automatically take $10 off whenever you reach 2,000 points, or bank all your points until Christmas and get a potentially bigger discount off your shop from December 1 each year.

You can use your Everyday Rewards dollars for money off shop in-store or online at Woolworths, Big W, BWS and participating EG fuel outlets. Either way, you’ll get a flat 0.5c value per Everyday Rewards point.

This is fine as the minimum redemption level, and if you don’t travel often, this could be the best option for you. However, there’s certainly the potential to extract far greater value when opting for Qantas Points instead of a discount off your shop.

Summing up

Although Everyday Rewards is a much smaller program than Flybuys, it offers the core essentials for shoppers: redeeming points for $10 off at the checkout or converting to Qantas Points at a decent rate.

The best value of Everyday Rewards points is obtained from premium cabin redemptions with Qantas and partner airlines through Qantas Frequent Flyer, but this option won’t be viable for everyone.

If you prefer redeeming points for more Qantas Economy flights or having a discount at Woolworths, then your Everyday Rewards points have still been well-spent.

The main downfalls are the lack of other redemption options, such as a rewards store or gift cards, and partners to earn points.
