Hi everyone,

Just received my new EDR card today in the mail which I already have linked to a QFF account, I just want to know the best way to use this card early on to yield best results, im not a huge shopper so I am happy to wait 4,5,6 weeks at a time to trigger better rewards so yeah, any advice would be great!


Thanks

Everyday Rewards usually send some sort of Welcome offer, usually for Woolworths supermarkets. Spend just the exact amount of the target for the offer. If you need other things make a second transaction and don't swipe your card for the second transaction. The Welcome offer is usually only targeted at around $30 so it will hopefully be easy to reach.

There are more tips we can give you but I'll let others have a chance while I think of the next best tip. The tip of just spending the minimum amount required to get the reward applies to all targeted offers. I don't want to overwhelm you too much but I will help out as best I can.

Ok so only swipe it once per shop, at the target value not swipe 2-3 times a shop at $30 each?

Yes, once per shopping trip. This helps to keep your offer targets low. You may not get very many base QFF points but this should increase the chances of you getting reasonable bonus points offers or offers of a cash discount or dollars off your shop.

Most of my transactions are between $30 and $50 and I space them out so much on each account that I get lots of offers for bonus points on a $50 spend or a $30 spend. If I don't use one of the accounts for 4-6 weeks then I get what is called a "we miss you" offer. This can often be for a target of $30 or $50.

My suggestion is to have one Everyday Rewards account per adult member of the household. This can lead to targeted offers more often and better targets to go for. Everyday Rewards don't always increase the bonus offered when they increase the target that they want you to spend. Make sure you keep track carefully of which account has which offer.

Everyday Rewards now have a decent amount of demographic information on us now and know what types of food we buy. If I don't have a targeted offer now I don't scan my card. As a new member you need to give them an idea of which product groups you buy but try to spend less than usual on each product group in the transactions where you swipe your card. This leads to reasonable targets when Everyday Rewards want you to spend a specific amount on a particular product group in order to get a reward.
