Pros

  • Stack the QFF points earned with this card with normal Woolworths Rewards points

  • 0% balance transfer rate for 14 months

  • 10% off one shop at Woolworths each month

Cons

  • Relatively high ongoing annual fee ($169)

Details

If you regularly shop at Woolies and want to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points, this card could be a convenient tool to help reach your jet-setting goals. This Woolworths credit card has a competitive 0% balance transfer rate for 14 months, but a pretty standard 20.49% purchase rate with 55 interest-free days. Cardholders can also receive 10% off their first shop in store or online at Woolworths on selected dates each month (typically a weekend).

However, the real draw of this card is being able to earn both Qantas Frequent Flyer points and Woolworths Rewards Points at the same time, and then convert those Woolworths points into QFF points! Here's how it works out:

  • You earn 1 Qantas Frequent Flyer point per $1 spent on eligible purchases at Woolworths Group stores. (This includes Woolworths supermarkets, Big W, Dan Murphy's, BWS, and Cellarmasters.)
  • You can also earn 1 Woolworths Reward point per $1 spent. These can then be converted to either Woolworths gift cards or Qantas Frequent Flyer points at the following rate:
  • 2,000 Woolworths points = $10 Woolworths Dollars = 1,000 Qantas Frequent Flyer Points

This would give you a total of 3,000 QFF points for spending $2,000 on eligible purchases at Woolworths Group stores.

The Qantas Platinum card also allows you to earn QFF points on purchases from non-Woolworths stores, at a rate of 0.5 points per $1

Avoid this card. They forfeit all Qantas and Woolies rewards points if cancel.

published

I cancelled the card after 2 years and average monthly purchases were about $2500, I never carried over a balance.
I initially transferred a balance and they charged interest on it.
The rewards accumulated after 2 years was about enough to buy a mid range toaster.
The android app never worked.
For 169 a year I would expect a bit more.
Just use debit or afterpay as this card does not give much bang for the buck and they are very rude at the end.
As for rewards forfeit I now choose Virgin and Coles.

No explanation given for rejecting my application

published

Awful customer service. Customer service is in a foreign country and not in Australia so not possible to actually speak to anyone remotely connected to Woolworths and the credit card team. No explanation given to me as to why my application was rejected when I have an impeccable credit rating. As a result I will no longer shop at Woolworths or get fuel from their service stations.

Have been trying to get Qantas Bonus points since August 2015, keep getting fobbed off by call centre, will not reply to emails, call centre is a waste of time, no other form of contact, shame, shame, avoid this company at all costs, they do not deserve our custom..

TERRIBLE

published

I always find Woolworths as a great place to shop at, but their credit cards are in one word: VERY TERRIBLE! They have the WORST customer service in the WORLD. I believe they outsourced it to Philippines, and there you go. They might have reduced the cost, but they have compromised on quality!

Be Warned

6 weeks after closing our account, we receive a statement saying we owe several hundred dollars from a third party transaction made 5 weeks after our account had been closed. This was not a recurring bill, something the girl on the help line seemed unable to understand. Despite the account being closed we were left with no alternative but to report the card we cut up weeks ago as stolen.

Unauthorized International charges

published

The direct debit payments suffered additional international currency conversion charges. When they are made in local currency. Telephone service happy to refund charges after a 12 Minute phone call but cannot explain why the charges have been made other than to confirm they are bank charges and no overseas transactions have occurred. Apparently "its just a routine glitch" No way I can trust a bank the behaves in this manner and neither should you.

Account closed!

No longer happy with Woolworths Qantas Money Credit Card

published

2 months ago Woolworths changed their policy on Frequent Flyer points cumulation for the month. It is now capped at 2500, so I no longer endorse this credit card. I will be cancelling it before they charge the annual fee.

I received a marketing email in April 2013 from Woolworths Money regarding "Doubleville" for the Qantas card. It said you earn double the points during May 2013 and it would appear on the next statement (issued in June 2013). I received the next statement (for May 2013) and there were no bonus points. I phoned Woolworths Money and they said they knew nothing about this promotion or the email, which I unfortunately deleted and am unable to recover. Did anyone else receive this email or know about it? Thanks for your help

Hi Jo. When I rang about double Qantas Points (for bookings made with Qantas) I was told they new nothing about the deal either. I persisted and rang an Australian based call centre and eventually they agreed. I got the 18,000 points and then cancelled the card and went with Bankwest. I have not had to argue with them over entitlements and their service has been great. In my case thought this was not a special promotion it was an apparent standard deal.
