Woolworths Everyday Rewards now replaced by Woolworths Rewards
As of October 28 2015, the Woolworths Everyday Rewards program has been replaced by the new Woolworths Rewards scheme. The most notable changes to this loyalty program lie in its treatment of Woolworth points and Qantas points. Petrol discounts remain the same.
In summary, the previous reward system of collecting “Woolworth Points” has now become a “Woolworth Dollar” system, which offers more of an automatic cash rebate than the old way of collecting points for future redemption. With this change, Qantas Frequent Flyer members also earn points in a very different manner.

Commonly asked questions about the Woolworths Rewards scheme
What are Woolworths Dollars?
Woolworths Dollars are the currency of the new Woolworths Rewards program. Each Woolworth Dollar is worth AUD $1 off a future spend. You accumulate Woolworth Dollars by scanning your card when purchasing orange ticket items at Woolworths online, Woolworths supermarkets and BWS stores, excluding Tasmania. These orange ticket items are tagged to indicate how much Woolworth dollar(s) they earn.
When you’ve accumulated 10 Woolworth Dollars, you automatically get $10 off your next transaction in participating stores by scanning your card. There is no limit to the amount of Woolworth Dollars redeemable each time, but you can only redeem them in multiples of 10, and the system automatically redeems them for you whenever you reach $10 Woolworth Dollars.
To earn Woolworths Dollars with Woolworths online, make sure your rewards card is linked to your account by registering your 13-digit card number online at woolworthsonline.com.au under ‘My Account’ and ‘Woolworths Rewards’.
What about Qantas Frequent Flyers?
Given the change in reward scheme, Qantas points are now also earned differently. Previously, Qantas Points were earned on every extra dollar spent above $30 in a transaction.
Woolworths Rewards initially dropped the Qantas partnership, but it was announced in late 2015 that by mid-2016, you’ll have the option to convert your Woolworths Dollars into Qantas Points at a rate of $10 Woolworth Dollars to 870 Qantas Points. If you choose this option, your Woolworths Dollars will be automatically converted into Qantas Points every three months.
Needless to say, your Woolworths Rewards card must be linked to your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership. You can do this online at woolworthsrewards.com.au under ‘My Account’ and ‘Cards & accounts’, or by calling 1300 10 1234 and selecting option 1 (8am–8pm on weekdays, 9am–5pm on weekends).
How about fuel discounts?
The fuel discounts pretty much remain the same. By spending $30 or more and scanning your rewards card during the transaction, a 4c per litre discount will be loaded on your card for use at participating Caltex Woolworths co-branded fuel outlets.
The only difference is that while previously you could earn two Qantas points per litre at the Caltex/Woolworths fuel outlets, this will no longer be possible.
Are there any other perks?
Some other program benefits include online or email product offers that are designed to help boost your Woolworths Dollars balance, and a weekly ‘Scan to Win’ lucky draw that rewards 10,000 shoppers with $10 Woolworths Dollars for simply scanning your rewards card at checkout.Back to top
