Earn frequent flyer points for Deliveroo and Menulog takeaway delivery
It's not widely known that Deliveroo and Menulog Australia can see you earning frequent flyer points for takeaway home delivery. UberEATS had a partnership Star Points (Starwood Hotels) but that ceased on December 17, 2017. Unfortunately, there are currently no alternative ways to earn bonus points for UberEATS.

While earning points is a simple way to top up your frequent flyer accounts, they are not significant enough in this case to give preference to one delivery network over another. As is often the case, there is no need to be loyal. Just use your preferred delivery company and keep the points as a small bonus.

If you are seeking to maximise points through different avenues, we advise people to join three major frequent programs which is discussed in more detail at Which frequent flyer program should you join?. This will allow to scoop up points from either service which is particularly useful if your preferred restaurant is listed on one of the services and not the other.

Affiliated Airline: Virgin (Velocity Points)

Earn: 2 Velocity frequent flyer points per dollar spent, making it the higher earner for takeaway home delivery

Net benefit per $100: 200 points

How to earn points: For each Menulog order, you will need to start by visiting the Virgin eStore and log-in to your Velocity account. Importantly, if you don't follow this first step, you won't earn Velocity points. Once on the eStore, search for Menulog or follow this direct link New Window and log in. Click the Start Shopping button and you'll be redirected to the Menulog site, then order as per normal.

Affiliated Airline: Qantas (it's hardly surprising the flying kangaroo and Deliveroo are partners)

Earn: 1 Qantas frequent flyer point per dollar spent.

Net benefit per $100: 100 points

How to earn points: Download or open the Deliveroo App then go to My Account and add your Qantas frequent flyer number. Then order as per normal. Points can take a long time to reach your account (3 months).
