Supermarket Bonus Points - 2 points per $
Food Delivery Services - 10 points per $

Different varieties of these offers depending upon whether card is linked to airline program or not.
I've got this offer on my credit cards but not my charge card, which I guess makes sense since I'm already getting bonus points on everything for my charge card.
Is that everyone else's experience as well?

Just spotted a new one:
Amazon Prime - Get 20 Bonus Membership Rewards Points per $1 spent on Amazon Prime membership by 31/07/2020.

For me this seems to only be my credit cards, not my charge card.

Got this on the platinum reserve card. For groceries it doesn't seem to be worth while. 2 bonus points plus the 2 standard points is still less than I'd get for using the platinum charge which is offering double points yielding 4.5 membership rewards points/dollar.

On the other hand, offer is also 1 bonus QFF point on the QF Amex for supermarkets. That's 2.25/dollar which is the same as what you can earn (in QFF points) on the charge card.

I had a quick skim through the T&C - it seemed like giftcards bought instore are eligible, just not ones bought online - does that seem correct to others? Happy happy joy joy :)

That's my understanding as well.

Looking forward to using these some of these offers, being newish to the Explorer Card.

Question though - in the Ts and Cs the following exclusion appears:

"Excludes transactions made through a third party establishment or payment processor"

What actually constitutes a 3rd party establishment or payment processor? Was hoping to double dip a bit if I could via Cashrewards.

Any ideas?

I mainly seem to be spending on groceries now so happy with the bonus points. I use Platinum Edge and I am also the local champion at my local woolies so I will get 6 points per dollar or how I prefer to see them as 3 Krisflyer points per dollar.

It's like you're reading my mind...

I'm in an 18 month Amex quarantine however, +1 received the supermarket offer (1 extra point) on her DJ Amex which, of course, equals 0.5 extra airline points/miles. But, if it is not valid on purchasing eGift cards, then she misses out on the 5% discount at Woolies, Woolies Petrol, Dangle Dan's, Big W, etc.

Is it worth giving up the discount for an extra 0.5 points?

However, she also received the offer on her QF Ultimate card (again 1 extra point) so that would make it 2.25 QF points per $ but again she looses the 5% discount on eGift cards.

So effectively (assuming my maths are correct):

QF Amex Ultimate: 2.25 QF per $ (225 points per $100 spend);
DJ Amex direct: 2 QF/SQ per $ (200 points per $100 spend); or 250 points as @Leigh744 has noted below?
eGift cards via DJ Amex: 1.5 QF/SQ + 5% discount (150 points per $100 spend but loose $5)

So on a $100 spend, she would get an extra 75 points using the Ultimate vs the eGift cards for a "cost" of $5, or 15 points per $.

Does the brain's trust agree or am I missing something?

The DJ Amex gets an extra 1 Qantas point not 0.5. So you'd be getting 250 Qantas points per $100 spent. The offer doesn't state the bonus points are added before converting to Qantas points. I read it as the extra points are given after the initial 2:1 conversion.

Interesting; obviously I was thinking that it is added to the MR points before conversion but on re-reading the T&Cs it does say "1 Bonus Qantas Point " as you point out so your interpretation may well be correct for QF (not sure about other airline partners).

That would make the penultimate sentence 20 points per $, not 15.

I did a purchase on the DJ Amex on Friday at Woolworths, so once that is processed early this week we will see if it is indeed 2.5 points per $1 or 2 points.

Agree not worth it generally
I'd only use it at non-WW outlets (I never seem to have enough discounted Coles giftcards). Exception is buying third-party giftcards at WW or BigW where the WISH won't work
I have double points on Charge so it's not a big difference anyway

It’s definitely MRs. They have added the bonus points for my 2 purchases on Friday and just goes to the MR total.

I got extra 2pts/$ on my DJs platinum. I made 2x $4.50 transactions and received 20 bonus MR points. Assuming they have rounded each transaction up to the next $ (ie $5 each) to calculate the bonus.
