Watch out Citibank, Qantas is bringing the wine. Raise a glass for EpiQure by Qantas Frequent Flyer
EpiQure for Qantas Frequent Flyer members has landed.
EpiQure members get to choose from a range of wines Qantas provides for its customers on their flights. There are a range of red, white and sparkling wine, fine dining experiences and recipes and VIP events to keep the weekend interesting.
Uncork the wine
Say you want a $50 plus case of Oakridge Pinot Noir. It’s going to cost you $173.94 or approx. 22,000 frequent flyer points.
Pay with your card
Paying with your credit card is going to deliver more value for members of this program. Looking at the example of the Oakridge Pinot Noir, which has a Qantas Frequent Flyer accrual rate of 1:1, cardholders will need to spend approx. $20,000 before they have enough points for the case of wine – that’s an expensive drop.
EpiQure members who pay with their card will receive three Qantas Frequent Flyer points for every dollar spent, 2,000 bonus points on the purchase of 12 bottles of wine and a further 8,000 points when 48 bottles are purchased in the first 12 months.
So, in order to get the 10,000 bonus Frequent Flyer points, members will still need to spend over $3,000, even if they want the cheapest wine available.
This will give a total of approx. 19,000 Frequent Flyer points for a total spend of approx. $3,000. To put this figure in perspective, approx. 25,000 points are needed to fly from Sydney to Melbourne.
Satisfy your palette
Qantas were spot-on when they said nothing compliments good wine better than well matched food. And even though some of us like to think of ourselves as connoisseurs of wine food and wine, this is something best left to the experts.
EpiQure takes the stress out of finding the perfect wine for the perfect dish by offering a selection of recipes and wines to match.
Plan your weekends
Just like wine and food go hand in hand, Wine, food and weekends work even better. Events like the ‘Producer Degustation Series’ or ‘’Wolf Blass 2012 Luxury Pre-release Dinner’ are just a couple of the great weekend events on offer from EpiQure.
Join now for special offers
For a limited time only, the next 3,500 members to join will enjoy a complimentary bottle of exclusively blended Seppeltsfield Rare Tawny, or a bottle of Billecart-Salmon Champagne.
Go ahead, pour some wine, raise your glass and don’t let the memories go!
