Lucrative offer: earn 20,000 bonus Qantas Points by opening and depositing $350 into a new Australian Super account

Until 5 May, new Australian Super members who join via this promotional page and contribute at least $350 into their account within six months of opening it can earn 20,000 bonus Qantas Points.

You’ll receive the bonus points ‘approximately 2-3 months after meeting the join and contribution criteria.’

A few notes:

  • Existing members and TTR (Transition to Retirement) Income accounts are ineligible for the bonus points offer
  • You’ll be charged an administrative fee of $1.50/week until 29 March, increasing to $2.25/week from 30 March onwards
  • You may be charged an investment fee of 0.66% of your balance
  • You can avoid insurance premiums if you opt out of the insurance
  • Whilst you cannot withdraw your funds until retirement, you can roll them over to another super fund in Australia—you may wish to wait until 1 July to do so as that is when the $35 exit fee will disappear
  • This does not constitute individual tax advice but rather just passing on details of this promotion—contact a financial services professional if you need advice

For grocery spend: earn 3 Qantas Points per $ spent at Woolworths Online

Until 4 February, the earn rate for online purchases at Woolworths has jumped from the regular 2 to 3 Qantas Points per $ spent.

You’ll need to click through the Qantas Shopping portal first.

You can also stack this offer with the regular earn of 1 Woolworths Rewards point (=0.435 Qantas Points) per $ spent by entering your Woolworths Rewards number, as well as up to 3 additional points for using a credit card that awards bonus points on supermarket spend. More info on that here.

There is a monthly fee of $2.95 per card.

For those looking for home insurance: 8,700 bonus Qantas Points for a new policy

Until 28 February, Woolworths Rewards members (excluding Tasmanian residents) who take out a new, combined Woolworths Home & Contents Insurance policy can earn 20,000 bonus Woolworths Rewards points. Those convert to 8,700 Qantas Points if you are opted into automatic conversion (which you should be if you are looking to build your Qantas Points balance).

You need to enter promo code WOW20K as well as your Woolworths Rewards details when applying online.

The Woolworths Rewards bonus points will be loaded within 45 days of the first premium being paid in full.

It seems there is a 30% discount on this type of online policy right now.

This does not constitute individual insurance advice.

Best for Qantas Insurance customers: earn 0.5-5 Qantas Points for sleeping ‘well’ each night

To promote good sleep, between 31 January and 28 February, you can earn 5 bonus Qantas Points for every night you:

  • Set a bedtime routine within the Qantas Wellbeing app;
  • Put down your phone at least 30 minutes before your set sleeping time; and
  • Don’t move your phone during the night

Here is how the promotion is described:

5 Qantas Points is the number of points that can be earned through the Sleep Health Challenge per night through the Qantas Wellbeing App between 31 January to 28 February 2019. After this period, Qantas Frequent Flyer members who do not have an Eligible Qantas Insurance Product or have completed the 28-Day Trial will earn Qantas Points at a reduced rate.

We value Qantas Points at 2c each, meaning each night of ‘good sleep’ during the promotion earns you a paltry 10 cents. If you don’t have an insurance product with them, then that will drop to 0.5 Qantas Points per night from 1 March.

So this promotion is best maximised by those who already have the Qantas Wellbeing app and have a Qantas Insurance product. Read more about this promo in our guide here.

Excellent deal: earn up to 15,000 bonus Qantas Points + $50 off with HelloFresh food delivery

This deal effectively allows you to ‘buy’ Qantas Points at half of their target value—and that doesn’t even take into account the value of the food.

You’ll earn:

  • 5,000 bonus Qantas Points and $25 off on the first box
  • another 5,000 bonus points and $25 off on the second box
  • another 5,000 bonus points (but no discount) if you get to your tenth box

How to access the offer

  1. Subscribe to a weekly Classic, Veggie or Family Box using promo code HFQANTAS15K
  2. Make sure that the email address you enter into the HelloFresh website is the same as the one in your Qantas account

There does not seem to be an expiry date on this offer. This offer excludes Tasmania.

You can start your order through the offer page.

What is HelloFresh?

If you aren’t familiar with the service, HelloFresh has made a video to explain how it works:

How to maximise this offer

The cheapest plan is the Veggie Plan for three meals a week with two servings each for $69.95, so with the $25 discount, you’d effectively be ‘buying’ the bonus Qantas Points at 0.8c a piece. That’s above our redemption target for Qantas Points at 2c each, so this is a fantastic deal—and that calcuation doesn’t even take into account the value of the food.

Earn more by referring

If you want to refer friends and family, you’ll earn 1,000 bonus Qantas Points and $50 off your next order for each one—and they’ll get $50 credit towards their first box. To refer a friend, log into your HelloFresh account and share your HelloShare code.
