Hello, my children have points expiring in June, but not enough to do a family transfer. What activity can I do to stop them expiring? Res Plan surveys have to be 18+ and seems similar with most things my FF is linked to. Thanks.
Join an everyday shopping rewards program that sents points to QFF in the kids name and link to QFF (eg woolworths or BP rewards etc), u only have to have 1 transaction on your QFF every 18 months and the above programs are free to join

The issue with using WWR to keep points balances active is the requirement to earn 2000 points before anything shows up in QFF - that's quite a few shops unless you get a decent booster promotion.

BP Rewards is a much easier way to achieve the same thing, or better yet, just pull all the QFF points into a central account using family transfers.

As mentioned above, Hoyts payments are very quick as are BP as many others have said.

Here Terry White Chemist transfers the 15th of every month you have earned points.... Are the kids head aches?

Happy wandering

Re WWR, (that said though), sometimes if you, or as I did last week, got a buy more than $40 from BigW and get 2,000 WWR bonus points, bought something for over $40 from/with Big W, and got 2,000 WWR points just for that.
With the cold weather coming, I got a doona, and some warm clothing, ...
Over $40, and the 2,000 WWR points appeared straight away, and this time went straight to QFF.
You can go into WWR and change the QFF account you want the transfer to go to.
All this presupposes the kids are a bit older.
Can you trust a 5 year old kid to go and pay at BP's counter, maybe you could use their QFF card, went to a BP today, the BP app/card reader was outside of the enclosure, facing the side with all the knicknacks, ie, away from the counter, so counter person wouldn't be able to see the card/phone app use, not that they would care.

This hasn't added anything to the thread which wasn't already covered - we all know WWR booster promos exist. The issue is that they're not predictable, so if you're trying to create some QFF activity on an account which has points expiring in 30 days (just an example) you want a known, easily accessible earning option which doesn't involve praying for a promotion.

No. All my post 'presupposes' is that OP is switched on enough to understand they would be scanning their child's QFF card at the register......
