    Default Qantas or virgin points which would you focus.

    I'm with both programs, plan to save points to pay for flights for holiday, unsure of destination yet.
    QF I have aprox 150,000 points, virgin i have 15,000 HOWEVER i won't be earning many more QF as woolies no longer really offers that program and thanks to my fuel, electricity provider and other program I'll be earning 20,000 plus a year in virgin.
    I have a debit card with both and both I can earn 1 point for every $2 spent. I'm thinking of transferring bills money to one of my cards ea week and paying bill via credit to earn points. If I include daycare in this then I'll be able to earn at least 200+ points per week ( just over 10,000 per year).
    So if you were me would you focus the cards on the qf and have balance increase 10,000 points per year ( so being already larger balance more travel options) or focus all points to Virgin to build the balance up.

    I have only Qantas points. My credit card has linked American Express which is 1 point every $1, so I use that as much as I can.

    Woolworths is bringing back a similar way for rewards to collect points. It says $10 Woolworths dollars can convert to 870 points which seems better than currently. http://www.ausbt.com.au/woolworths-b...s-for-shoppers

    Ha ha issue is I don't buy the crap that they want me to buy to get woolies $$.
    I know the rewards will be higher with an official credit card, however we are avoiding cards at this stage of our lives

    I don't buy their crap either 😜 Maybe just keep a look out for specials you actually need. I remember once seeing really high dollars for something useful lol

    I have an Amex card that is $0 annual fee and is 1 point for every dollar with Qantas. I would get one of those and use that where it's accepted.

    I've been a Qantas member for twenty years now, so maybe I'm a little biased. I've flown free four times now. Just deciding on the next trip as DH and I have enough points to again. Last two times was taking whole family. Next time will be also 😄

    Yep Qantas but find a better card that gives you better bang for your buck
