Although Woolworths Rewards is a relatively small program with few partners, Woolworths has branched out to other businesses such as credit cards and insurances, some of which may offer bonus points from time to time. Here are the type of offers you can expect to get bonus Woolworths Rewards points from.

Earn up to 3000 bonus points with Woolworths Gift Cards! [targeted]
Woolworths Rewards has rolled out individualised offers this month to encourage spend in their WISH or Woolworths gift card range. The includes:
- Woolworths Supermarkets Gift Cards
- BIG W Gift Cards
- Caltex Woolworths Gift Cards
- BWS Gift Cards
- Dan Murphy’s Gift Cards
- Cellarmasters Gift Cards
- and any WISH Gift Cards
You can choose to:
- Earn 1000 bonus points* when you buy a $100 (or more) WISH or Woolworths Gift Card(s)^
- Earn 3000 bonus points* when you buy a $250 (or more) WISH or Woolworths Gift Card(s)^
You normally earn 1 Woolworths Rewards point per $1 spent. Valuing each Woolworths Rewards point at 0.7c each, you are effectively earning a cashback of 0.7%.
However, if you choose to convert your Woolworths Rewards points to Qantas Points, you’ll be earning the equivalent of 0.95%, based on our valuation of Qantas Points and that 1 Woolworths Rewards point converts to 0.5 Qantas Points. It is therefore our suggestion that the best use of Woolworths Rewards points is converting them to Qantas Points.

20,000 Woolworths Rewards points with car insurance
Use the code 20KR during the quoting process to be eligible. Note that using this code may increase your premium slightly compared to not using the code, but I found the price difference to be minimal. As I personally used this offer, the bonus points credited within the first month of the policy.
Another perk of holding Woolworths car insurance is an extra 10% off your grocery shop once per month.
20,000 Woolworths Rewards points with home and contents insurance
Another long-term offer is 20,000 bonus Woolworths Rewards points with a Home and Contents Insurance policy (some people have reported that it works with Contents only, but your experience may vary).
Enter the code WOW20K during the quoting process to be eligible. The points are usually credited after 45 days, i.e. midway through your second month of paying premiums. The insurance policy may be able to be cancelled afterwards if you desire.
Woolworths home and contents insurance also gives an extra 10% off your grocery shop once per month.
Woolworths supermarket promotions
Woolworths also has lots of in-supermarket promotions, often offering between 2,000 to 6,000 Woolworths Rewards points at a time. These can really stack up, so keep an eye out for them in your emails.
Read more about their supermarket promotions in our guide to earning Woolworths Rewards points.
Even though Woolworths Rewards does not have many partners, Woolworths still manages to offer plenty of opportunities to earn bonus points through promotions. Points can be earned at the supermarket and with some of Woolworths’ ancillary products such as car and home/contents insurance.
Recurring shopping offers are the best way to regularly top-up your balance, while offers on insurance will give you a big boost once in a while when you’re switching over as a new customer.
Frequently asked questions
Keep an eye out on your email as that’s how many of Woolworth’s shopping promotions are released. If you have the Woolworths shopping app, some Rewards-related promotions may appear there too. Make sure to click the ‘Activate’ button before using a promotion.
Sign-up bonus points are also offered on some products such as insurance. This guide will have the latest details on these offers.
If you forgot your Woolworths Rewards card while shopping and haven’t got it stored in Apple Wallet or Google Play, try downloading the Woolworths app and logging in. It will display a barcode you can scan. It’s best to do this if you’re chasing a bonus offer.
Alternatively, you can give the Woolworth Rewards team a call at 1300 101 234 within 7 days of purchase to have the base points of your shop added to your account as a once-off. Note that only the base points from your purchase will be added, no bonus points from any eligible offers on your account will be added.
It’s hard to pin down a value for Woolworths Rewards points, as that depends on what you use them for. As a base number, 2,000 Woolworths Rewards points is equal to $10 off at Woolworths, so that’s 0.5 cents a point.
If you had 16,000 Woolworths Rewards points and converted it to 8,000 Qantas Points and then used those points to redeem a short regional flight normally worth $250, then that is theoretically 1.6 cents per Woolworths Rewards point.
Since 16,000 Woolworths Rewards points are worth $80 at the supermarket, if you can instead redeem it for a short Qantas flight costing more than $80 (which most flights do usually), then you’ll be ahead!
