Complete list of Australian VIP and discount reward clubs

Free tips No Spend Challenge Save Money

Most Australians know of FlyBuys, Everyday Rewards, Qantas Frequent Flyers and Velocity, but did you know there are so many more VIP clubs you can get freebies and discounts from? Ask every shop you go to, every cafe, restaurant or anywhere you spend money if they have a loyalty or member program. While many have cards to carry in your wallet, others have moved to apps and if they haven’t there are apps you can download to store all your loyalty cards in instead of carrying all the cards.

This post shares all the loyalty programs we have found in Australia, but they aren’t the only way to get freebies. We have listed all the Australian birthday freebie options here and a full list of Aussie freebies here.

Loyalty and VIP programs aren’t the only way to live for free or improve your finances, we have loads of options on this site including 50 ways to live for free, we share the best Australian online survey sites to make over $1,000, we are doing a 6 month no spend challenge and have 10 ways to make $1,000 a month you might want to check out as well as the complete list below of Australian VIP, loyalty and reward programs. Plus, check out our free pdf with 51 ways to make money from home.

Do you know of any more VIP or loyalty programs for Australians?

  1. It seems that when I lose the aged pension I will also lose my hearing aids and their maintenance.Please correct me if I am wrong.

    1. A lot of those things are determined by the state you are in, but in general, yes, you lose those benefits when you come off the age pension.

  2. CGU Privilege Card if you have insurance with CGU. AGL Rewards Program, Lumo Energy (Lumo Ameego Shopping Program) if you are their customer for your utilities but for Lumo Energy it depends whether the energy plan you choose gives you access to this loyalty program. Red Energy Rewards™ Membership, Australian Unity – Wellplan Rewards Program, Medibank Private – Medibank Choose Your Reward and RACV membership card. Depending on the program the discounts can range from gift cards at reduced prices, to reduced movie ticket prices, to discounts off meals at restaurant to discounted prices for state or interstate attractions in Australia like theme parks.

  3. Plenty of local businesses offer rewards cards also, too many to name even! Some others I can think of that are more widely known:
    -Chemmart pharmacy (earn points on non-prescription items to reduce costs at the register),
    -the Co-op book shop is widely distributed ($20 one time fee to join, then get member discounts for life- great for university students. They also have free postage),
    -EB games have been around for a while,
    -RACQ (& other state equivalents),
    -Petbarn,
    -Red Cross (buy/donate 10 times for a 25% discount).

  4. Dymocks has an amazing one. Free signup, special offers and gather money to spend, 5% of every purchase goes onto the card as store credit and when you reach a certain level 20%.

    1. Oh, I didn’t know this and when I spent a few hundred there recently, no one told me! I usually order books online but every now and then I go into a store. Thanks, Greg!

  5. I also check the following: union memberships, club memberships (eg RACQ), insurance company offers (sometimes they’re part of a chain or group of some kind).

  6. Salvos stores have a store card. Every dollar spent is a point, which then can be redeemed on instore purchases. Not sure what the conversion is, but if you’re a regular it’s worth it.
