Christmas shopping earns flights at Woolies

The new Woolworths Everyday Rewards Qantas Mastercard credit card is offering a remarkable upfront deal for a card that has a generous points scheme with Qantas. This is a platinum chip and wireless credit card with a barcode on the back for our everyday money rewards as well. There are extra points on offer for putting your shopping on credit at Woolies right now. “We are not encouraging people to put their Christmas shopping on credit,” said Ms Dhun Karai. “We feel we now have a full range of card products. We have pre paid cards for the budget conscious a credit card and now this platinum card.

Dhun said the new card was targeted at people with an income over $50,000. Woolworths has banned the credit option at the checkout for six or seven million Australians who use “combo cards”. They are cards that feature the Visa (or Mastercard) logo and the word “debit”. These cards are linked to a transaction and are Eftpos cards with the added functionality of global scheme (Visa and Mastercard) cards.
