    I don't see Virgin Australia mentioned anywhere and the fact they are partnered with Webjet means it's not happening I suspect

    I think Coles needs to do something we're over of the $2 milk wars.

    Looking at some of the benefits and pleased they finally got rid of points expiring after 3 years regardless of any activity. However if the new card goes live this Monday then why hasn't my new card come yet? I guess this is why I have been getting surveys from Qantas asking me about what retailers I would use. In the end, this is good for both flybuys and EDR users as hopefully the competition will be good for all of us.

    Looks like the points are being revalued. At the moment, a point is worth 0.8c, whereas it looks to be changing to 0.5c.

    Also, I note the the ColesMastercard site now says 2 points per dollar. Pretty sure that used to say 1 point per dollar.
    Something big is about to happen.

    It's no secret DJ and Coles were having big tantrums over a possible tie up. Coles felt like they were the ones doing DJ a massive favour but DJ thought they had the upper hand.

    It has been quiet though recently so maybe they sorted it and there is a big announcement coming?!?

    .... Or Coles told them to go jump.

    I'm hoping the former!

    What I have read so far doesn't look to be very enticing. My only hope is that it will stir Woolies up and make EDRs more rewarding.

    ok here is my 2c,

    ive generally avoided fly buys in the past because I couldnt believe how bad the program was, expiring points $5 for 1 or 2 points

    but now its $1 per 1 point, it makes it far better,

    HOWEVER, i find that the coles petrol is ALWAYS 1-2c more expensive then the woolworths petrol, so I dont refuel at coles petrol

    that being said, I have found that prices at coles and woolworths shopping are generally the same BUT the specials at coles seem to be far better and more frequent

    due to this change, I will now use my fly buys card to get $1 per 1 point, plus my cba amex to get 1.5 QFF per $1

    I heard that you need 80,000 points to get from sydney to melb via flybuys, which makes it ridiculous, but at least its on top of my 1.5QFF per $1,

    so I wont be expecting anything decent, but maybe in a few years, Icould afford a trip overseas. but no doubt by then the redeem required will go up as per usual of these programs

    It's about time, really needed a shot in the arm, even if the much-expected Velocity tie up didn't happen (My assumption is with Webjet being listed this is the case).

    I'm also hoping for a similar "pre loaded fuel voucher" system like the EDR program. I tend to keep leaving the paper vouchers at home instead of in my car, would be nice if they could be on the card! Seeing as they have got a "My5" promotion listed, this indicates to me that there is more to the card than just an identification number via barcode, as there must be somewhere on their system where that information is kept and accessed when you scan. Small step to then load any fuel vouchers, one would hope.

    Also, good to see it is now a more simple "1$ = 1 Point" system, as opposed to the $5 = 2. Though given the reported devaluing of points the actual benefit seems a bit murky.
