Buying wine from Qantas Wine is a popular way to quickly earn extra Qantas points at a reasonable cost as the per-point cost with their regular bonus point offers is often lower than buying top-up Qantas points outright.
Qantas Wine is currently running a “Biggest Bonus Points Bonanza” promotion, with bonus points available on over 250 products until Wednesday 31 July 2019 (or until sold out). The biggest bonus was 20,000 Qantas points for cases of McWilliams 1877 Canberra Shiraz, retailing at $414 for six bottles. However, these cases have all already sold out at the time of writing.
There are still three cases available which each attract 15,000 bonus Qantas points at a cost of between $354 and $360. For example, you can get a case of six McWilliams 842 Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2014 wines for $354 and earn 15,000 Qantas points. That works out to be a cost of 2.36 cents per Qantas point. By way of comparison, it would cost $506 to buy 15,000 Qantas top-up points, so this is not only cheaper but also comes with some quality wine.
You can see a full list of current “Biggest Bonus Points Bonanza” offers on the Qantas website.
Keep in mind that the bonus points earned with these wine deals are in addition to the regular Qantas points earned for Qantas Wine purchases. You’ll normally earn 1 Qantas point per dollar spent with Qantas Wine.
If you’re a premium member, you’ll also earn an extra 2 points per dollar and get free delivery on all purchases. (Free members receive free delivery when spending more than $300.) There are also several bonus points offers on now which are exclusive to Qantas Wine premium members.
Upgrading your Qantas Wine membership costs $99 per year. Qantas Platinum One frequent flyers and Qantas Premier Titanium credit card holders receive complimentary premium membership.
