Food delivery services have exploded in popularity in recent times. To entice people to start using the service, Deliveroo is offering up to 500 bonus Qantas Points for the first two orders placed before Friday 3 March 2017.

  • 200 bonus Qantas Points with your first order
  • 300 bonus Qantas Points with your second order

The bonus points are in addition to the usual 2 Qantas Points per dollar that Deliveroo customers receive.

I have used Uber Eats and found the service to be good but haven’t tried Deliveroo. In Brisbane, they both seem to offer a fairly decent selection however when I’m not in the mood to cook my preference is to usually eat out instead of ordering in.

Ingogo is currently offering riders the chance to score 250 Qantas Points for each of their first three taxi rides using the service, until 31 March 2017. That’s a total of 750 Qantas Points up for grabs.

I created my Ingogo account in 2014 but hadn’t actually used the service to request any rides until this week. On Tuesday, I took one taxi in Brisbane and one in Melbourne. I found the service and app itself to be great and the bonus points posted within 24 hours.

The advantage Ingogo offers over just making a regular taxi booking is that (1) fares are prepaid, (2) you can contact your driver again after the trip for lost items, (3) invoices are emailed automatically and (4) your credit card is saved on file so there’s no payment hassle upon arriving at your destination. Unlike Uber, Ingogo connects you with registered taxi drivers, making it more acceptable for work related travel.

After the promotional period, Qantas Frequent Flyers can earn 1 Qantas Point per dollar spent on the service.

Earn points with 28 day Qantas Assure trial

Qantas has recently begun offering a free 28 day trial of the Qantas Assure app that allows you to earn points without having a paid Qantas Assure policy. 

Qantas Assure is a health insurance offering launched by Qantas and NIB in 2016. Policy holders can earn Qantas Points on their policy spend (1 point per $) in addition to the unique ‘Wellness Rewards’ program, which offers Qantas Points in return for being active. 

Wellness Rewards works on your iOS or Android device and allows you to set daily and weekly walking and cycling challenges that’ll earn you Qantas Points. Qantas has recently begun offering a free 28 day trial of the app that allows you to earn points without having a paid Qantas Assure policy. After the 28 trial, any additional points you accumulate will be locked (up to 3000) and can only be unlocked by purchasing an insurance policy.

As a long time Fitbit and now Apple Watch user, I really enjoy using this app and think they’ve managed to balance the reward and earn rates well. The app is well designed and offers a solid amount of data and history tracking.

I am fairly happy with my current health insurer and so haven’t yet taken the plunge into a Qantas Assure policy, but earning points for your fitness activities is certainly a fun and addictive game. It’s worth noting that the various policies have an annual limit to how many points you can earn through the Wellness Rewards program, which is worth checking before buying a policy.
