    Too many hoops for a measly 10%

    Will wait for the simple 15% for straight transfer methinks!

      I think like most people, you read wrong - this is 200 bonus VELOCITY POINTS per 2000 FB points transferred (2000 FB points gets you 870 VFF points usually). This is an extra 70 VFF points compared to the 15% deal, effectively being 23% (on the base 870 VFF points per 2k FB points).
      I think this is probs the best deal in the VFF/FB transfer history, provided you do meet the "shop at 3 partners" criteria

      •  

        Its like the best ever bonus for flybuy if i am not mistaken.

      •  

        My Bad! Agreed this promo provides more than the ~130 Velocity Points per 2000 FB points transferred during a normal 15%

        Pity the participating partner outlets is so limited but

  •  

    Is this targeted? I can't see it on the link

    I wonder how this will work

    Should we do the 3 purchases, then transfer flybuys?

    Is there a trigger that needs to be activated before we transfer flybuys?

    Thanks OP!

    So why the early Xmas ?

    $30 possible spend ( easy task) to exchange up to 138 k flybuy pts ( not a low amount ) at highest in history exchange rate !

    Isn't it 870+200= 1070

    Possibly flybuys response to the Woolworths/Qantas redemption change….

    Great to see Flybuys up the ante to WW, I've been hoarding flybuys for a deal like this!

    Looks like you can buy from Coles in-store(1 retailer), then click and collect(2 retailers), then pop over to First choice(3 retailers) and the jobs done?

    T&C's:
    Spent a minimum of $10.00 per retailer on an eligible purchase ($30.00 overall) in three of the participating retailers to earn 200 bonus Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred to your linked Velocity account.

    Your flybuys card must be presented at the time of purchase. The participating retailers include: Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor. An eligible purchase does not include the purchase of gift cards, iTunes cards and smoking/tobacco product purchases.

  •  

    Been waiting for a 20% bonus deal again but the highest there’s been in recent times has always only been 15%. This works out at 23% but a shame it’s capped to 138,000 flybuys points

  •  

    Does buying on coles ebay count as coles.com.au?

  •  

    So much work for little bonus with capped amount transfer compared to WW. Very confusing description, so in plain English, there are 3(4) shops that you need to do to trigger this bonus.

    1. If you just shop at Coles, coles.com.au or any of those in the list (Coles, coles.com.au, First Choice Liquor, First Choice Liquor Market and Liquorland) for at lease $10, you will only get extra 100pts
    2. You need to spend 2x $10+ at 2 different shops, i.e Coles AND First Choice Liquor to get bonus 150points.
    3. To get the max 200pts bonus, you need to buy 3x $10+ at 3 different shops i.e Coles, First Choice Liquor AND Liquorland.
  •  

    The optimum use of this deal cannot be made by teetotalers

  •  

    Any recommendations for the best $10+ spends on the liquor stores?

  •  

    I transferred 46000 points in a 100 bonus point offer two months ago and they gave me just 100 points for the entire lot, not the 2300 to which I was entitled. Have sent them an enquiry and had no reply. Anyone else ever had this issue? I will try calling them but last time I did that it was very difficult to get them to understand what I was on about.

    I'm surprised this offer hasn't gained more traction. This is the highest flybuys to velocity transfer rate ever offered, even if you have to work a little to get it (spend at 3 stores, $10 per store). Best to keep receipt copies in case the bonus doesn't come through, or perhaps Flybuys knows and it will say on the website when you transfer that you're eligible?

  •  

    I have a fair few Flybuys points saved up, and I don't know whether to cash in now, or to wait for the next time an offer like this rolls around (and hope it applies to Flybuys then…) https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/347038

    •  

      Even with offers like that flybuys was only the regular 15%
      Hopefully 2:1 will become standard to match woolworths.. then the occasional 15% bonus offer would be good value…
      Now would be a good time if you had 138000 to move.

    Further to my previous comment (see above) I called them and they told me that it is 100 bonus points per transfer!!! When I asked if they mean that you should transfer all your FB points (potentially 138000) in separate 2000 points transfers, I was told Yes, that is what I should have done!!!
    As they have been of no use via their feedback oage or via phone, have messaged them via their FB page. Apparently they are "looking into it"
    I have a screenshot of the offer. Nowhere does it state that you have to transfer every 2000

    •  

      Wow - that's not what I would have expected either!
      I'll wait until you hear back from them.

    •  

      Per transfer sounds incorrect. Here is the wording from the T&C's:

      Spent a minimum of $10.00 on an eligible purchase in at least one of the participating retailers to earn 100 bonus Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred to your linked Velocity account; or

      Spent a minimum of $10.00 per retailer on an eligible purchase ($20.00 overall) in two of the participating retailers to earn 150 bonus Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred to your linked Velocity account; or

      Spent a minimum of $10.00 per retailer on an eligible purchase ($30.00 overall) in three of the participating retailers to earn 200 bonus Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred to your linked Velocity account.

      The way that's written suggests to me that the number of transfers does not matter and you shouldn't have to transfer in 2000 point blocks. Would be good to have extra confirmation though.

      •  

        I guess it depends upon your interpretation of "for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred".
        If you transfer 20,000 points (for example) shouldn' that mean bonus points for every 2,000 = 10 x the bonus?

      • +3 votes

        Confirmation?

        Also targeted apparently.

        •  

          they seem to have changed the postion to indicate it is not targetted. it would be much better if you could get confirmation you have met the conditions before transfering all the points.

      Wow… this now makes sense - not in a good way :). I did 7 x transfers during the promotion period and got 700 bonus points. 6 of 7 transfers were 2000 FB points each - so nothing lost here. But the last transfer was more than 20k FB points, and I only got 1 x 100 bonus pts for that. I have the offer email from 6 Aug:

      "The Bonus Points offer is not transferrable, and is only available to the named recipient of this email and/or members that receive the offer in the flybuys app and/or members that receive the offer on the flybuys website. For the promotional period Tue 6 Aug to Sat 31 Aug 2019, linked households will receive 100 bonus Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys points transferred to Velocity Frequent Flyer Points."

      I never thought transfers need to be separated in to blocks of 2000 points each! When I called FB call centre, they asked me to contact Velocity since the bonus points are velocity points. I then contacted Velocity and they advised my issue needs escalation which can take 5 business days to process.

      I hope the latest offer differs from this!

  •  

    So, checking, the process is:

    Shop at one of the partners , min $10.
    Repeat at 2 other shops. limited choices
    Then : Go to flybuys app. Transfer 2000 points. Get 200 bonus.

    Repeat.

    Is this correct?

    •  

      Almost correct. Last step should read…
      Then: Go to flybuys app, transfer at least 2000 points, get 200 bonus for every 2000 you transfer.

      You don’t have to repeat the $10 spend at 3 shops.

  •  

    Have to transfer 2000 points each time

    I finally got an email back from Velocity and they have said that there was a problem with the August promotion and that some members did only receive 100 points per transaction but they are working to rectify it and the correct balance should be in your Velocity account in 3-5 days. So if you were affected keep an eye on your points balance.

  •  

    I've just tried my first transfer and it only showed 870 points.I was told by the help desk it can take up to 24 hours for the points to come through. Did anyone get any sort of notification that the extra points would apply?

  •  

    Agree, I have made purchases at each store but verification that the bonus is activated would be helpful..

  •  

    Can anyone confirm if we have to transfer in blocks of 2000 points?

  • +1 vote

    I got an email today from Velocity that says it is 200 bonus Velocity points per transfer of 2000 Flybuys points.
    What a debacle.

    • +1 vote

      This is my understanding too, but the trouble is there appears to be no way to confirm you have met the criteria before you transfer all your points - 2000 at a time. I was told that it will show 870 at the flybuys end but will show as a bonus on velocity in roughly 24 hours. So far I'm not seeing my bonus points on velocity. I do agree this is somewhat of a debacle.

      •  

        You won’t see your bonus points until at least November. Read my comment above.

        •  

          I got my message directly from the help desk supervisor but I, suspect, you are correct on this. I, suppose, I send the points and hope it comes through.

  • +1 vote

    You need to meet the spend requirements by 31-Oct but when do you have to transfer the points by? I couldn't find it in T&C.

  •  

    So how many of us are taking the leap of faith and transferring our flybuys for this?

    •  

      I’m giving it a go. I figure I can argue with them if ypthe extra points don’t show up.

    •  

      I did, but I waited until the 3 lots of flybuys showed up in my flybuys account and then did 21 x 2,000 point transfers just to be sure. Didn't take long.

  •  

    Just wanted to clarify that after pushing them, and struggling to get a straight answer about the August points, my missing bonus points (2200) finally arrived in my Velocity account.

    Let's hope that they get it right this time around. Although I cannot even get the FlyBuys website to do the transfer this morning!
    Anyone else having trouble transferring today?

    •  

      no problems here with transferring today.
      We will make a class action if they don't cough up. I think if we have the evidence on the flybuys account that the 3 transactions happened, it will be fine.

      • +2 votes

        Not sure how they reflect it because Coles Online and Coles shopping for the same shop only reflect with the shop name in Flybuys account. Hopefully they configure it correctly.

  •  

    Anyone seen points yet?

    • +1 vote

      The standard points were in my velocity account the next day after transferring, the bonus points are yet to arrive.

      •  

        Yup, that is what I have as well. Just wondering how long to wait before putting in a request to them.

        •  

          I would send a request on December 13 if the bonus points don’t arrive or arrive incorrectly. They have allowed a 6 week period in the terms and conditions.
