Gift cards and eVouchers: 0.27 cents per point.
Q Rewards Points can be redeemed for gift cards and eVouchers in the BOQ Rewards portal which will give your points a value of 0.27 cents each. Redemptions start at 7,200 points for a $20 gift card or eVoucher.
Do note that the cost in points can vary depending on which card you have. Some redemption values may change once you're logged into your BOQ Rewards account. The table below lists the amount of points needed for basic redemptions.
While it's not a "big" difference, some of the higher denominations will give you slightly (and I mean slightly) more value. You'll also want to note that some denominations may not be available with select retailers.

Redeem points for Apple products: 0.21 cents per point.
You can redeem you Q Rewards Points towards purchases in the Apple catalogue which includes products like the iPhone, iPad, Macbook, and Apple Watch. This will give your points a value of about 0.21 cents.
Point transfers to partners: 0.25
If you have the BOQ Platinum Visa Card, you'll be able to transfer points to Flybuys and Virgin Australia Velocity.
Virgin Australia Velocity points can be worth as little as 0.5 cents per point and as much as 3 cents per point or more depending on how you redeem them. This means that converting Q Rewards points to Velocity points can produce a wide range of values. I highly recommend finding a great redemption with Virgin Australia before transferring your points so that you can ensure you're getting solid value.
As for Flybuys, I am unsure of the transfer ratio for it is not listed on the site nor on the world wide web.
