Home theatre and soundbars
We have officially entered the golden age of television – with a saturation of streaming services, free to air, cable and on-demand content, home theatre systems have never been so important. Set yourself up for some extreme entertainment with a soundbar or surround sound. A soundbar is the best choice for smaller rooms or those on a budget – shop Bose, Samsung, Sony and more. If you want something more comprehensive, then opt for surround sound in either a traditional or wireless system. The Qantas Rewards Store has a great range from big names like Sonos, Denon, Klipsch and LG.
Drones, cameras and camcorders
Capture the moment with one of our still or video cameras (and their many accessories), and if you want to see the world from up high, we’ve even got drones! Otherwise known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), drones really are as functional as they are fun – take breathtaking images, shoot videos and perform serious aerial stunts. We have a great range of drones from DJI, the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems. What about a good old-fashioned camera? Although there’s nothing old fashioned about the DSLRs and mirrorless cameras on the market right now – Canon, Nikon and Olympus have everything you’ll need to take the best photo from entry-level to professional setups.
Smart home tech essentials
The smart home is no longer a thing of the distant future, it’s very much a thing of right here, right now. Smart home lighting from the likes of LIFX and Philips Hue, lets you create unique experiences in your home, wirelessly. The range includes bulbs and downlights, plus security, outdoor and feature lighting. You can install smart home security too. The Qantas Rewards Store stocks Arlo – an internet-connected camera brand – think cameras, security lights, audio doorbells and more, all completely controlled with the Arlo App. And then there are smart home speakers and smart home displays. The big players in this area are Amazon Echo (just ask Alexa!) and the Google Home Hub or Google Nest Hub Max.
Computers and gaming consoles
There’s a lot to think about when buying a new computer – what kind of processor, how much RAM, storage limits, touch screens versus no touch screens, portability and of course operating systems (the age-old Mac vs PC debate). The Qantas Rewards Store has offerings from big brands like Apple, Microsoft, and Lenovo. Are you looking at investing in a video game console? The Nintendo Switch is thought to be the best for families and younger gamers, while the Xbox One and Xbox Series X are a great option for older children, teens and Minecraft fans in particular. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 4 and Playstation 5 (soon to be released) are perfect for teenagers and above, plus they have an amazing selection of platform-exclusive and single-player story-led games.
Bluetooth headphones and speakers
Earbuds like the Apple Airpods are very popular – they’re portable, great for exercise and perfect for anyone who prefers a more discreet look. Over-ear headphones, like the iconic Bose, offer perhaps the best “listening” experience and are a must-have for most frequent flyers. Or perhaps you’d prefer a pair from Beats, Sony or Sennheiser? Packed with premium sound quality, they really let your music fit your lifestyle.
On the other hand, Bluetooth speakers are super easy to install and can be used by themselves or added to an existing setup – check out our range from JBL. But if you want to take the sound wherever you go or need a speaker that will withstand something more rugged than your backyard, then have a look at Ultimate Ears (UE Boom). They are designed to be exposed to dust, dirt and the wet without damaging the speaker or the sound quality.
