It will no longer be possible to earn or redeem Qantas Frequent Flyer points at Rockpool Dining Group restaurants from 15 August 2019. Bars and restaurants in the Rockpool portfolio include Burger Project, The Bavarian, Saké and Spice Temple.
Qantas Frequent Flyer members can currently earn 1 Qantas point per $1 spent at Burger Project or Fratelli Famous, or 2 points per dollar at Rockpool’s premium and casual restaurants. It is also currently possible to redeem Qantas points at any Rockpool venue – although, with 4,000 Qantas points giving you just $20 off your bill, that’s hardly good value anyway.
A message on the Rockpool Dining Group website states:
Effective 15 August 2019, Qantas Frequent Flyer members can no longer earn or use Qantas Points directly with Rockpool Dining Group. The last day you can dine and earn or use Qantas Points with Rockpool Dining Group is 15 August 2019.
Although the official end date for this partnership is 15 August, AFF members have reported that some Rockpool Dining Group establishments have already removed their machines and have already stopped awarding Qantas points.
Qantas’ celebrity chef Neil Perry is an executive at Rockpool Dining Group. The company has over 70 restaurants across Australia and will soon open its first establishment in New Zealand.
The end of Qantas’ partnership with Rockpool Dining Group comes after Qantas Restaurants closed down at the start of this year.
Meanwhile, Velocity Frequent Flyer members will no longer be able to earn points with OpenTable from 20 July 2019. For bookings made prior to 11.59pm on 20 July, you could earn 300 Velocity points for each restaurant reservation made on OpenTable.
You can still earn Qantas points for ordering food with Deliveroo. Velocity Frequent Flyer still has a partnership with Menulog.
