    Qantas Rewards Store MEL

    Apologies if this has already been discussed but today arriving in MEL I saw that at the corner near gate 1 Qantas has obtained some retail space and setup a physical Qantas Rewards Store. Inside they have on display all the literal and figurative toasters than can be purchased with Qantas points.
