Frequent flyer hack: free membership in Qantas Epiqure wine club

Here's a top travel hack for Qantas frequent flyers: grab free membership in the airline's epiQure wine club, a deal valued at $99 or 13,000 points.

All you need is your frequent flyer number and a special promotional code – which is loungejoin – and one year's membership of epiQure is yours.

Qantas describes epiQure as "an online community offering you a wealth of wine, events and rewards", including three points for every dollar spent on wine orders as well as tickets to food and wine events promoted through the site.

Here's how to start earning frequent flyer points for your plonk.

1. Head to and click the Join now tile to the right of the page.

2. On the signup page, enter your Qantas Frequent Flyer number and the password to your online QFF account.

Not a Qantas Frequent Flyer member? Here's a handy hack that'll let you skip the $82.50 sign-up fee and join for free (valid until November 30, 2012)

3. When your information is confirmed you'll see a box where you can enter gift certificates and coupon codes. Enter loungejoin  and click the Apply button.

4. Voila! Enjoy 12 months of free epiQure membership.
