Although Everyday Rewards (a.k.a Woolworths Rewards) is a relatively small program, Woolworths is branching out to other businesses such as credit cards and insurances. The good news? Some of these may offer bonus points from time to time. Here are the types of offers you can expect to nab bonus Everyday Rewards points from, which could then be used for money off your shop or be transferred to Qantas Points.
20x bonus Everyday Rewards points with Apple Gift Cards
|Expiry: From 8 December 2021 to close of business, 14 December 2021|
Looking at Apple’s latest hardware? Eyeing that new app? The combined Apple Gift Card will sort you out. For one week, collect 20x bonus Everyday Rewards points on Apple Gift Cards of $30 and higher. The deal starts Wednesday 8 December at Woolworths stores. It’s not as high as the previous 30% bonus offers, but we’ll still take it.
You’re able to buy a maximum of 10 gift cards per transaction with this offer, and a limit of one transaction a day. Variable-load gift card amounts are eligible for the bonus points too. Variable load cards are especially handy if you have a particular denomination in mind (from $20 to $500).
Here are some examples of the points you can earn:
- $50 gift card: 1,000 Everyday Rewards Points (worth $5 or 500 Qantas Points).
- $100 gift card: 2,000 Everyday Rewards Points (worth $10 or 1,000 Qantas Points).
- $200 gift card: 4,000 Everyday Rewards Points (worth $20 or 2,000 Qantas Points).
- $500 gift card: 10,000 Everyday Rewards Points (worth $50 or 5,000 Qantas Points).
Let’s say you’re after a new iPhone 13 Pro Max 256GB, which starts from AU$2,019. If you purchased 4x $500 gift cards (using variable load) to help cover the price of the phone, you’ll also earn 40,000 Everyday Rewards points. That’s easily worth $200 at the checkout, or 20,000 Qantas Points – more than enough for a free domestic Economy or Business Class reward seat on certain routes (plus taxes).
- Perth-Hobart one-way in Economy (18,000 pts + taxes).
- Brisbane-Darwin one-way in Economy (18,000 pts + taxes).
- Adelaide-Melbourne one-way in Business (18,400 pts + taxes).
- Brisbane-Lord Howe Island return in Economy (16,000 pts + taxes).
The cheapest Qantas reward flight is 8,000 points + taxes (converted from 16,000 Everyday Rewards points). You’ll need to buy at least $800 of Apple Gift Cards to start earning enough Qantas Points for a reward flight.
Apple Gift Cards can be used for purchase at the Apple Store (in-store and online), as well as the iTunes/App Store.
Note: Although you can buy 10 Apple Gift Cards per transaction at Woolworths, you’ll only be able to use a maximum of eight gift cards with Apple online and in-store. If this is an issue, you may also be able to add the gift card balance to your Apple Account Balance in advance, though a limit of AU$4,999 then applies.
Get 15% off and 20,000 Everyday Rewards points with Woolworths Car Insurance
|Expiry: Unknown | Last checked: 7 July 2021|
Woolworths has a long-running car insurance offer where new customers can earn 20,000 Everyday Rewards points, equal to $100 off at the checkout or 10,000 Qantas Points. For a limited time, you could also get 15% off your premium!
Use the code REW20K during the quoting process to be eligible. Note that using this code may increase your premium slightly compared to not using the code, but we found the price difference to be minimal.
As we personally used this offer, we found the bonus points were credited within the first month of the policy. Another perk of holding Woolworths car insurance is an extra 10% off your grocery shop once a month.
If the above code doesn’t work anymore, also try 20KR which may offer 20,000 bonus Everyday Rewards points, but without the 15% discount.
Earn up to $750 in gift cards with BUPA health insurance
|Expiry: Unknown | Last checked: 25 November 2021|
Woolworths Everyday Rewards is teaming up with BUPA health insurance to offer up to 130,000 Everyday Rewards points on new policies, worth up to $650.
The actual Everyday Rewards points bonus will vary depending on the annual premium:
- Under $1,000: $14,000 points (worth $70 or 7,000 Qantas Points).
- $1,000 to $1,999: 24,000 points (worth $120 or 12,000 Qantas Points).
- $2,000 to $2,999: 48,000 points (worth $240 or 24,000 Qantas Points).
- $3,000 to $3,999: 60,000 points (worth $300 or 30,000 Qantas Points).
- $4,000 to $4,999: 80,000 points (worth $400 or 40,000 Qantas Points).
- $5,000 to $6,249: 110,000 points (worth $550 or 55,000 Qantas Points).
- Over $6,250: 130,000 points (worth $650 or 65,000 Qantas Points).
You’ll also earn 3x bonus points on fresh fruit and veggies at Woolworths for 60 days after you join BUPA. This offer is valid until 31 January 2022.
Earn 20,000 Everyday Rewards points with Woolworths Home and Contents Insurance
|Expiry: Unknown | Last checked: 25 November 2021|
Another long-term offer is 20,000 bonus Everyday 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. You may be able to cancel the insurance policy afterwards if you desire.
Woolworths home and contents insurance also gives an extra 10% off your grocery shop once a month.
Woolworths supermarket promotions
Woolworths also has lots of in-supermarket promotions, which generally offer between 2,000 to 6,000 Everyday Rewards points at a time. These points can really stack up, so keep an eye out for these offers in your emails.
You can read more about Woolworths’ supermarket promotions in our guide to earning Everyday Rewards points.
Even though Everyday Rewards doesn’t 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 sizeable boost once in a while when you’re switching over as a new customer.
Frequently asked questions
Keep an eye 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 Everyday Rewards card while shopping and haven’t got it stored in Apple Wallet or Google Play, try downloading the Everyday Rewards 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 Everyday 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.
It’s hard to pin down a value for Everyday Rewards points, as that depends on what you use them for. As a base number, 2,000 Everyday Rewards points is equal to $10 off at Woolworths, so that’s 0.5 cents a point.
Say you had 16,000 Woolworths Rewards points and converted them to 8,000 Qantas Points, then used those points to redeem a short regional flight normally worth $250. Then you’ve just scored yourself 1.6 cents of value per Everyday Rewards point.
Given 16,000 Everyday Rewards points are worth $80 at the supermarket, if you instead redeemed them for a short Qantas flight costing more than $80 (which most flights usually do), then you’ll come out ahead!
