Thanks.. added to OP
This is perfect for all the points we have all earned after such a busy travel season.
Might look into some AirPods Max and AirTags finally. Have accumulated over 350k points the past 12 months.
EDIT: Stacks with Points Club Plus 10% discount, 25% off!
@jeppetto367 Where do you actually see this discount? Or is it just automatic?
I added it to my cart and then clicked on my cart. It then gives a pop down menu which shows both the 15% discount (saves ~23k points), and also the 10% discount (~13k points), both discounts are listed separately.
I paid 119,599 points for Airpods Max delivered.
But you can get approximately $1000 if you sell that amount of points and buy from the retailers at discount….?
~120k points for something that costs ~$750? Am i missing something or does that not seem like a good deal?
@TightTerry: I have more points than I know what to do with.
@jeppetto367: so you didn't think to use those points for a gift card and walk in store to buy the item?
@Contopaxi: That would have been 40,000 points more?
Points club plus?
Its a Qantas program (similar to Frequent Flyer but for earning points on the ground rather than in the air). If you earn 350k points on the ground in 12 months you get benefits such as 10% off the points store, Qantas Club/lounge access, earn status credits on reward flights, etc.
Can read about it here: https://www.qantas.com/au/en/frequent-flyer/my-account/point...
It's a bit like F(l)ight Club and you're not supposed to talk about it
You are not your car keys….
I don’t see the 5% stack for Points Club in my cart.
Is it only on some products? Tried an Apple iPad and a Taylormade Hybrid Golf club.
I just went to add the Airpods Max to my cart again and the 10% discount isn't there now. Looks like I managed to get in early and they've fixed it already.
points club discount is for people who earned above 150k or 300k points in a 12 month period.
relaunched this morning with additional perks and benefits
No longer stacks for points club plus
Wish the new ipad pro's were on there, that would be an instant buy
Strange, the model number they quote (MHQU3X/A) is it not the new M1 variant? Delivery is not until mid June.
Yeah, the quoted model number is MHQU3X/A, which is the new iPad Pro 11 (2021) according to other retails website. But the spec list was iPad Pro 11 (2020). So confused
I took a gamble and bought it, delivery is 18/6 so it can't be the old model right?
I also bit the bullet and bought it. Sent an email to the support team asking about it. Took a screenshot to highlight the discrepancy
@mrdng: I did save a screenshot of the model number before ordering as well.
Wondering if we can cancel it if they are gonna send out the older model since Qantas store has a no refund policy for Apple products
I've got response from Qantas support, they confirm that it will be the latest 2021 iPad model. They will fix the description on the store page. :D
@mrdng: i gave them a call before and they confirmed as well :)
Is your order still showing processing?
@CharityCase: Yes, still showing processing
Just in time to use my meagre points balance before they expired.
As long as you add to your points - even tiny additions within a certain period of time they dont expire
"certain period of time" = 18 months
the qantas wellbeing app, that gives you small amounts of points for walking self-set target of # of steps is perfect for making sure your points never expire.
+1, there are also plenty of online stores where you can purchase and get points from eg Terry white, kogan etc
When 15% off is a Frenzy…
I just added an iPhone SE to the cart and set the slider to pay with money fully. It says $671 including the 15% frenzy discount. That’s eerily close to the normal price/RRP of $678 at most major retailers.
I guess you only get a discount on points?
Yep, it basically says that on the page.
If you use Points Plus Pay a lower discount may apply.

Anyway meh, looks like I lost 6800 points in the middle of the Melbourne lockdown in October last year, expired. No wonder I CBF with the whole thing. It’s a big game.
The reason you lost your points is you CBF in the first place.
It takes little effort to keep your QFF balance ticking - for example a transaction account that accrues points on the balance. Or a credit card. or the Qantas wellbeing app. Or…….
@andresampras: Or Woolworths Everyday Rewards.
Like Aldi says, pointless points.
Not a game at all. My partner and I have flown to Singapore and Hong Kong on separate holidays basically for free using points, not to mention we got a Sonos Soundbar & Sub, iPad, Fancy kettle and almost paid nothing for them. It's definitely worth it if you put a little effort in.
I grabbed the iPad 8th Gen 32GB wifi and a cover. Thanks.
Isnt it's still better to use your points for flights if you can:
Brisbane Sydney Return Currently $400 using Red e Deal, or
Brisbane Sydney Return 16,000 points, or
Home Ipod Mini 22,021 pts, or
Home Ipod Mini $149
So 16,000 can get you 5/6ths of a home pod worth about $120 or a $400 flight
Yes its generally always better to use your points for flights,
Yes, even with the lower priced fare SYD-BNE return
Cash = $159 x 2 = $318
Points + Cash = 16,000 pts + $72 tax
So 16,000 / (318-72) = 1.5375 cents per point
Home Ipod Mini = $149 cash or 22,021 points = 0.6766 cents per point
Save them for flights.
Yep, way better to use them for flights.
As tempting as it would be to burn a few points on some "stuff", I know I should just save them for domestic flights to Sydney to visit the family, and to eventually go overseas with my wife once that all starts up again.
Well you will have about 2 or 3 years of saving points before the latter happens.
Rather use my points on flights during school holidays. And buy apple products outright and claim it on tax.
Just remember that as a rough guide you should be valuing points at around 1 to 1.2 cents. These apple items, even with the discounts work out at more than RRP.
0.5 cents, last I checked? Has it changed?
It's always been in excess of 1 cent. Where did you check?
Maybe it's different for products, compared to flights? I calculated last year when buying Apple stuff. Can't remember how exactly.
edit: yeah google gives you a range of results, it depends on what you're exchanging points for.
And also it depends on whether you'd rather use your 'free' points vs using cold hard cash to buy something I suppose.
@andresampras: That's the point I'm making. Buying products probably does value your points at half a cent or less. Using them for flights, upgrades or even selling them nets you more than double that.
aren't flights always better for Qantas points? more bang for buck even if there is sales on at Qantas store ?
Yes, but some people never actually use their points for flights for whatever reason, so those people might as well use them for something
Yes, that's my current state of things. Very rarely fly now.
I’ve been collecting QFF points for over 20 years and have never used them apart from spending 2000 on a “points plus pay” deal for headphones
@ak47wong: I had a tonne of Ansett FF points and that ended badly. Put me off the whole commercial world's points programs.
@ak47wong: Dang, they would have been awesome to use in 2019…
Thanks OP didn’t even know I have points logged on to check for a friend and found out I have enough points for the airtags, needed them but didn’t want to pay for them this worked well, free delivery too
Is this the cheapest way to get an iPhone 12 Pro?
Is this the real world?
Thanks OP, purchased AirTags!
Anyone received airtags from the Qantas Store yet??
