Buying wine through Qantas can be a great way to top up your Qantas points balance quickly.
Qantas epiQure has recently rebranded to ‘Qantas Wine’.
This week, Qantas Wine is offering up to 15,000 bonus Qantas Frequent Flyer points on purchases. That’s a sizeable serve of bonus points – more than enough to book a one way Qantas economy award ticket on Zone 1 and 2 routes or to redeem a Qantas business class upgrade on a Zone 1 ticket.
Which wines are currently offering 15,000 bonus points via Qantas Wine?
The current 15,000 bonus points offer is attached to nine different Australian still wines, including five reds and four whites (no champagne).
As always, we’d encourage you to compare Qantas Wine pricing with other wine retailers before deciding to purchase a particular product, to ensure a purchase via Qantas offers good value for you. Having said that, bonus point offerings of this size don’t come around very often, and a wine purchase can be a handy way to ‘top up’ your Qantas points balance quite quickly.
Depending on how you choose to spend them, we’d value 15,000 bonus Qantas points at least $1 each ($150 in total).
What is Qantas Wine?
Qantas Wine is the recently re-branded Qantas online wine store which sells an extensive range of predominantly Australian wines to Qantas Frequent Flyer members. This includes wines served in First and Business cabins.
Qantas Wine also offers a wine plan subscription service and have recently branched out into gourmet food offerings. The site used to run an extensive calendar of food and wine events across Australia. However, in the past few years, this has been whittled down to just a couple of events each year in major cities.
As I’ve previously written about here, I buy a fair amount of my ‘everyday’ quaffing wine through Qantas Wine. I often take advantage of their bonus point offerings on cases, so long as the cost per bottle is relatively comparable to other sites and, where relevant, at the cellar door.
Who can purchase through Qantas Wine?
Customers are eligible to purchase through Qantas Wine if they’re a Qantas Frequent Flyer member aged 18 and over. Simply head to the Qantas Wine site here to log in with your Qantas Frequent Flyer details and start purchasing. Bear in mind that delivery is only available within Australia.
If you are not already a member of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, find out how you can join for free here.

If you’re likely to buy wine regularly, you may wish to consider a ‘Premium’ membership. You can currently obtain a free Qantas Wine Premium membership via the Qantas AMEX Ultimate Card.
Premium membership can also be purchased outright for $99. You’ll be gifted a bottle of wine or the option of frequent flyer points, helping to offset the cost of membership. In the past, gifts on offer have included Pommery Brut Royal Champagne NV (selling for $76.99 at Dan Murphy) or 3,000 Qantas points. If available, we’d pick definitely pick the Champagne!
Premium membership entitles you to free delivery year round, regardless of how much you spend on the site. You’ll also earn 3 points per $1 and score invites to gourmet food and wine events around Australia.
