      Are you comparing this to flights?

      Because it's not entirely a fair comparison.

      •  

        No there are people on ozbargain that swear by selling their points so others can use it on flights.

        • +2 votes

          Ah - I don't disagree with that. Only problem is there is an element of risk involved with that (as opposed to just redeeming them on items/gift cards).

      meh overpaying for a Qantas flight and then hoping you can get upgraded isn't a deal to me.

      • +10 votes

        Agreed, each to their own I guess.

        Call me cheap, but I couldn't care less about upgrading a flight for what - a couple of hours of extra comfort? Imagine how much food you can buy with gift cards!! :D

        • +2 votes

          I feel the same - alot of people complain how "overpriced" the qantas store is vs flying etc.

          I'd prefer to get something I can use around the house than upgrade a flight. Especially in Australia… what, you get to sit at the front of the plane in a slightly better seat with slightly better food for a few hours.. big deal. I still feel like crap either way once I get off the plane.

          For example, got the Breville BES920 coffee machine off ozbargain, decided when I bought it I wanted to get the Breville smart grinder so used QFF points for that.
          I accept that higher point trade off, for not having to use my own $$$ which was super convenient at the time.
          I don't pay anything for qantas points as I just accumulate them via credit cards etc, so for me if feels like I'm getting something for free.

          Each to their own for sure!

          @dlcx:

          Agree with you and your general way of thinking.

          My only tip for you is rather than using it on items, use it on Gift Cards because essentially your point of comparison then becomes:

          • The points you need to buy the item you want - how much in value of realistically usable gift cards does this get you?

          This is relevant because especially on a website like Ozbargain where you always get eBay 10-20% off deals come up on stuff like electronics especially, there is a very real chance that:

          • You'd be better off using those points on the gift cards then buying the electronic item off one of those eBay deals
          • You can then pay for the item on your credit card again, thus earning you more points
          • You will have the advantage of having purchased the item on your credit card. This is more than just about the points in the point above. Other benefits: Dispute transaction (if necessary), extended warranties, price protection, accidental damage, etc.

          You won't get anything in that last point if you use Qantas points! Of course this all is dependent on you having a card that actually comes with those features though. If you don't - well, you can ignore most of what I said then.. just keep it in mind if you ever do get a credit card with such benefits.

    Can the 10% gift cards be used to buy items in store. I mean can, can we stack the discounts to 30% by buying the giftcards first and then using them to buy in store at 20% ? Any idea ?

    • +1 vote

      well no, because the items in the QF store can only be purchased using points and/or money

      •  

        You can't just use money. Otherwise I would have. I just got some Bose QC35 I keep missing the bargains (lowest ever has been $379) they never last too long. So I pulled the trigger and paid $268.15 and 23,216 points, that is the maximum real money figure you can spend on them. before the discount code they were $335.19 and 29,020 points. All in points cost was 72,550 down to 58,040.

        To buy 20,000 points is like $350+ but.. I have a tonne of points so I don't really mind losing 20k worth, although I did minimise the damage. I am getting 125,000 in a couple of weeks from my amex anyway.

        •  

          125k points every 2 weeks…
          Am I missing something??

        •  

          @cimot: No, I am getting a 1 off 125k bonus of points because I signed up to an AMex card. Not every 2 weeks. That'd be swell though. I have about 800k points total. I fly a lot.

        •  

          @releasethekr4cken: That make sense

  •  

    How to pay by credit card? It keeps saying i need to use points only. :(

  •  

    Wee, bought the Furi Pro Knife Block. Was going to buy with Flybuy points but this worked out a bit better.

  •  

    JB HiFi $100 egift voucher: 16600 points - 10% discount = still too much compared with selling points for 1c each.

    • +1 vote

      I don't think you can ever match 1c a point but I think other people mentioned they've been cracking down on the selling of points.
      More of a risk if you're the buyer of the points

      •  

        Buyers AND Sellers get penalised for sale of points, QF are tightly cracking down on this and strictly policing. Not worth the risk.

  • +1 vote

    Bose QC35 for 58040 points. Good value?

    •  

      no, 1 to 1.5c per point is the benchmark

    •  

      I think it's not bad…. given QC35's are very hard to find bargains for. If you have no better use for your points (upgrades/reward flights), 58k is a good discount on the normal 72k

    •  

      Use a combination, I used the maximum real dollar figure which made them $268.15 with 23,216 points.

      •  

        I ended up buying them for 58k points. Good deal I reckon.

  •  

    Anything of good value ?

    I could post literally hundreds of examples of what a rip off the Qantas store is, but Ill stick to just 1 this morning, feel free to add your own,

    The Tefal 5 piece Bistro cookware set, https://store.qantas.com/Catalogue.a2?Page=ViewProduct&Produ..., Its "normal" price on the Qantas store is 26980 points. Qantas have this item currently in the reduced sale basked for a whopping discount of over 50% at 13310. During this flash sale you can get another 20% off this "bargain" price bringing it down to 10648.

    Seems a good price right? Originally 26980 points, then reduced to 13310, and a flash sale discount making it only 10648- still a ripoff

    Dig a little on the net and you can have the exact same item delivered for $71.64 from the HUT in the UK https://www.thehut.com/hutint/my.basket (This includes a $22 tracked delivery fee- if you were to spend a little more delivery would be free and the cookware just under $50AUD!)

    …or you could pay the Australia tax and pick it up yourself from Harris Scarfe for just $119.95 http://www.harrisscarfe.com.au/kitchen-%26-dining/cookware/c...

    Having said that, if your a lowly Bronze member with QF (like me) and dont have a hope in hell of scoring that lucrative international upgrade, even though youve been forced to pay for a much higher priced fare just to have a slim minute chance of getting the upgrade, and have a truckload of points, then this might be the best time to burn your points on qantas store purchases

    • +3 votes

      I was in a similar predicament. I thought my points werent worth much at all, until i redeemed them for flights within the usa. Surcharge is just $5.4 per ticket. Your points go a much longer way there than here. Check out other flights that do not originate in Australia, you'll see better value.

      • +2 votes

        This is how I use qantas points!!! LAX-LAS 8k points +$5USD taxes
        this year i used points from LHR-ATH as a last minute booking on BA was some 350GPD, but paid QFF points instead.

      • +4 votes

        Check out other flights that do not originate in Australia, you'll see better value.

        This. Definitely this.

        I reckon the best thing to do is:
        1) Wait for a great return fare on an international destination and book
        2) THEN use your Qantas points to book flights to jump around to neighbouring countries for cheap

    •  

      I got it that their items is, most of the time, not that attractive, but I found your example of rip-off is rather exagerated. If local shop like Harris Scarfe selling for $119.95, and you only need 10648 points, that's rather decent (like other said, that's more than 1c a point). Where's the rip-off, it's even better value than gift card exchange that many ppl take too? Granted that you can find cheaper from UK like your example (even that it's still not that bad), but it'd more fair to compare them to local shops.

    Can anyone tell me if this would work?

    I want to go to Perth, but return flights are like $520 approximately with Qantas.

    Could I use this code, get 20% off a $500 Jetstar voucher. Then get Jetstar to match Qantas' flight and beat by 10%, then pay with the Jetstar voucher?

    Sounds like a good idea lol, no idea about execution.

    •  

      Wouldn't the Jetstar price beat not apply? Full service vs budget airline not comparable….?

      •  

        It applies to any flight within 1 hour of their flight, with similar benefits, i.e. baggage, food etc.

        •  

          wow okay… good to know…. althoguh i prefer to fly qantas :P

      •  

        Qantas is cheaper than Jetstar. Jetstar online price beat says find a better price online and we will beat it by 10%. I don't see why it wouldn't

        •  

          Dont get me wrong, I don't actually know, i was genuinely curious that jetstar would price match against QF flights. interesting!!!

        •  

          I'm more concerned about the gift card part of what I want to do. Anyone know if it will work?

          Also can I use both codes to get 30% off a giftcard? (doubtful, I know)

    Think the best flight I found to redeem atm is Mel-Dxb on Emirates A380 one-way in first class. That flight alone is worth a whopping $11k. If used by points it's only 144k and $400 on top. Worth a lot more than 3 Bose headphones that's for sure. Plus you get to keep all the goodies that they give out.

    •  

      That's roughly 7.6c per point?? Quality use of QFF points. :)

  •  

    Anybody redeem points recently? I checked my history, I redeemed JB gift card $250, 37250points last year in July. Now if I try to get $250, if not use promotion code, is 41500, after code, is 37350 (last year 37250 without any code). Did they increase the points this year permanently or this is a fake promotion?

  •  

    I have 14,000 points, never use Qantas to fly, most points through rewards and flying with partners. Thinking to just exchange this with $75 woolies egftcard. Wise move?

    •  

      Points for gift cards is generally considered to not be a wise move, plenty of discussion above and everywhere.

      If you used your credit card wisely and continued to fly with partners, a better use would be to redeem points for premium travel (business/first class). If you care nothing for travelling in a better class, then it doesn't really matter what you do.

      • +2 votes

        I think gift cards are the only option for some people. See previous discussion in this thread.

        It really depends how much you value first class and business class. For me if you can convert 100 QFF into $0.70, that is good.

        You're really not going to be able to convert 14,000 points into anything and you are best off monetising it ASAP, rather than sitting on it for 10 years hoping to have enough to upgrade to business class.

        Personally like a few others I don't care about upgrades.

    I was looking for sports headphone (wired) and am interested in the sennheiser CX-686G model. Anyone used that before?

    It is available for 13968 points which is better value than redeeming jb hifi gift card.

  •  

    What's the difference between the e-giftcard and giftcard in the store? eg jbhifi

    •  

      One is digital and one is a physical card which is posted.

      No real difference but some like the physical ones

      •  

        Thanks. How do you use digital ones at the store? Print out the barcode?

        • +1 vote

          Print or have it on your phone.
          It normally has a barcode of the gift card details so they can manually key it in if they need to.

          I have a lot of JB and EB games ones which I just hand over my phone and they scan or key it in.

          Woolies and coles are similar but have a in-store code which is just a shorter barcode to manually enter in :)
