Earning Qantas Points when buying from Qantas Wine


Qantas Wine is a wine program run for the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. As a result, if you want to buy wines from Qantas Wine, you have to be a Qantas Frequent Flyer.

But that may not be the challenge here. What I want to demonstrate is that the Qantas Wine program can offer a way of boosting your Qantas Points balance.

Yes, it’s a marketing play – but it is one that offers frequent flyers the opportunity to earn thousands of points while buying wine. Not only can you earn thousands of bonus points, they tend to post fairly quickly as well.

While it offers a base rate of 1 Qantas Point per dollar, the real value is in bonus point offers. Under these offers, you can pick up many thousands of points if you are willing to buy a case of wine offering bonus points.

And here is where it gets interesting. Sometimes you get bonus points and wine for less that it would cost to purchase points through the Top Up points program.

Here’s an example. Qantas Wine have an offer of 15,000 Qantas Points when purchasing a case of 6 Voyager Estate Cabernet. At $58 a bottle, this came to $350 for the case of 6, with 15,000 Qantas Points thrown in.

Here’s the thing. If you go to buy 15,000 Qantas Points through the purchase scheme, those 15,000 Qantas Points will cost you over $500. It’s almost as though you are buying Qantas Points and getting some wine thrown in for free.

Of course, not all deals work out this way – but this just shows that there are some good point earning opportunities available if you want to go down this path.
