How long has it taken you to earn 400k points? Given you can only convert 138k per VFF per year, it would take 3 years to transfer them all out (or longer if using bonus offer of 15/20%), so wonder why they haven't been transferred out as you earn or when the bonuses come up. And if using them for cash, why not transfer for $100 or whatever denomination for discounts on shops rather than putting dollars in Coles pockets earlier. i.e You can't earn anything on stashed FB points.Suppose I’ve been lucky to be getting decent offers through both flybuys and wwr. I’ve got ~400k flybuys points in the primary account and it pains me not to be converting them to velocity points with the current promo which waives the transfer limit but I’m still not too confident in velocity. I’m hoping Virgin picks up and I can then convert them and use them for a partner airline like SG or EY like I used to. Absolutely worse case I’ll use them to pay for flights or accomodation directly through flybuys travel. I just hope flybuys travel don’t go the way of other travel agencies and shut shop otherwise there will be no way to use points for travel!
