In the process, take advantage of the chance to join the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program for free, saving yourself $89.50.
Woolworths Homeshop has recently undergone a revamp and is now the new-look Woolworths Online. This provides the opportunity for anyone with a Woolworths Everyday Rewards card to earn more points when shopping online at Woolworths, where you can earn 1 point for every $1 for every $1 over $30 spent in one transaction. Accelerate your points earning with a Woolworths credit card.
Although some people may just use their Everyday Rewards card to store their fuel-saving vouchers rather than keeping them in paper docket form, there is far more to the Woolworths Everyday Rewards Card than this. To take full advantage of this card, especially when shopping at Woolworths Homeshop, you will need to join the Qantas Frequent Flyer Program.
Hold on, you’re thinking, I don’t want to be roped into some expensive scheme that I can’t even use.
Don’t fret. First of all, the usual $89.50 joining fee to become a Qantas Frequent Flyer member is waived when you join through Everyday Rewards. Secondly, you don’t need to fly with Qantas to benefit from being a Qantas Frequent Flyer member, because there are 25 partner airlines you can also use, travelling to 700 destinations worldwide. Thirdly, you don’t even have to fly to benefit, because there are 400 partners in total, which means you have a wide choice of travel, accommodation and merchandise when redeeming your points.
Shopping online at Woolworths Homeshop returns the same points as shopping in-store, where you earn one point per dollar over $30 spent in one transaction at Woolworths/Safeway Supermarkets, BWS stores, and BIG W stores. You can also earn 1 point per dollar over $50 spent in one transaction at Dick Smith and Tandy stores.
How to ensure you earn points at Woolworths Homeshop:
The first thing you need to do to earn points at Woolworths Homeshop is to pick up a Woolworths Everyday Rewards card. You can do this in-store at participating Woolworths or Safeway Supermarkets, BIG W stores, or BWS stores. You will then need to visit everydayrewards.com.au and set up your account. Here is where you can also create your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership at no cost, saving you $89.50. You then need to link your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership to your Everyday Rewards Card membership.
Once this is set up, whenever you visit Woolworths Homeshop and make purchases, you input your Everyday Rewards card number – not your Qantas Frequent Flyer card number – and any transaction over $30 starts earning you Qantas Frequent Flyer points. And remember, these can be used for more than just flights. You can even be rewarded with vouchers for shopping at Woolworths again.

The best thing to do is to browse around the Woolworths Homeshop sections to get an idea what’s on offer. You can also check out the delivery information so that you can see when any orders you make would be delivered in your area. As the majority of the sections contain items essential to daily life, you are going to have to purchase them anyway, so it makes sense to do this from the comfort of your own home and earn rewards points at the same time. For many people, having their shopping delivered to their front door is a great time-saver and far less stressful and strenuous than lugging numerous bags to and from the car.
The Woolworths Homeshop website also contains pages on Recipes, Special Offers, News, Help, Customer Service, and Account Management. In the News section you can keep up-to-date with what’s happening with the site, and also read articles on subjects such as shopping for allergies, vegetarian children, gluten-free diets, looking after your teeth and cholesterol, diets for pregnant women, delivery information etc.
It may not fit everyone’s shopping habits to order through Woolworths Homeshop, but you won’t know until you try it. Five minutes and a few mouse clicks is so much easier than an hour in-store and wasted fuel. With the added bonus of being able to earn Everyday Rewards points, what’s stopping you?
