This one has quietly crept back again this year. Didn’t receive an email but saw it in my Velocity offers.

For the promotional period 1 December 2018 to 31 December 2018 the earn rate for Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits will be 2 Status Credits for every $100 (including GST) spent in total across Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor each calendar month
FLYBUYS Link to turn your flybuys points into Velocity Points and earn Status Credits when you shop

Just noticed this myself when checking for Christmas Promo credits.
2xSC T&C said:
Double Status Credits: Velocity Frequent Flyer members must link their Velocity membership to their flybuys household to earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits. Only one Velocity membership can be linked to a flybuys household at any one time. For the promotional period 1 December 2018 to 31 December 2018 the earn rate for Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits will be 2 Status Credits for every $100 (including GST) spent in total across Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor each calendar month. No fractions of Status Credits will be allocated, only whole Status Credits. The Velocity Frequent Flyer member linked to the flybuys household (as at the end of the calendar month) will be awarded the Status Credits. During the promotional period, the nominated linked Velocity member may earn up to a maximum of 20 Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits.

Thanks for the heads up .This might come in handy for me, I'll be not far off renewing WP. Might mean cash saved on a status run :)

Formal email just hit my inbox about it. Assuming everyone else will have received too.

If your supermarket bills are large can also use family pooling to advantage

Hi RP, Mrs Mac and I also received 10 SC for over $1k spend each, glad I’m not alone. A large portion of both our spends was around the $105.95 mark, not sure if this isn’t being counted for double SC’s? Would be interested to hear from others...

I suspect the bonus SC's will arrive in a few days or so as a separate entry.

Spends on GCs don't usually trigger SC but there is hope that the promo may stir up the programming
I too only have single serve of SCs at present

Only single SC here, and as per Flyinfish all my previous Coles DSC offers have see the doubles value arrive in one go.

Someone it's best to leave others to bring it to attention. Lest attention be focused on details...

Apparently VA and Flybuys are aware of the issue and the double SC will arrive by the end of next week.
