Got the same offer with this being the last week. Spent yesterday just got 10k at 9.47 pm and then transferred to Velocity under the general 15% bonus offer by midnight tonight
Well done. I didn't think this would work and didn't bother. Silly me.

You do get the base flybuys in addition when they have a bonus flybuys offer on. T&Cs say no at other times but I've never been able to work it out in practice (particularly as WISH/WW is such a better option outside of offer periods). It does seem that the Big Green DIY store do give base (not sure about SCs) so its possible that other 3rd party GCs do in practice
Thank you Andye

Yes, I saw several posts saying you can get base points if you buy Bunnings gift cards, but you can not get points if you buy Myer gift cards. But I did not see any posts regarding only 1 visa and the perfect gift cards.

There was a eBay 20x points promo a couple days ago for one day only (31 July). I only noticed it an hour before midnight so I signed up for the eBay plus promo before the free trial ends which gives a point per $. Bought a Sony camera lens for $1000 so copped the standard 1000 points plus the additional 20,000 which was nice. If only we knew in advance with these promos I'd be able to schedule my eBay spending!

Ive been getting a lot of the 3x spends on my dockets lately.

Today I got one for spend $50 get 1000 points.
Now anyone know if I can give the docket to another flybuys member to use or does it have to be from the one which initially got the offer from?

Normally the docket says 'not transferable'.

I think I got 2 in a row before I had a spend (or pattern) that threw me off that gravy train. Even better when piggybacked to a spend $50 and bonus point offers.

Still awaiting 200 bonus points for Liptons Black Tea in my latest shop. Wollies are hardly getting a look in now (particularly with the Flybuys > Velocity 15% bonus offers).

This bring your bag thing is adding up. I didn't notice until I looked, but I generally make a couple of $2-4 shops a week as coles is the only supermarket near where I work and I'm getting an extra 30 points on all those shops.

Tomorrow Mastercard with 2000 points. Just wondering if I can get the base points and status credits as well?

Did anyone take up the recent 50x on Modi apples? I made a couple of transactions including those over a week ago and have seen no bonus points as yet. (Standard points for the shops overall were received.) Usually in my experience Flybuys points from Coles arrive within a day or two.

I also got this offer and bonus points do not seem to have posted yet.

I do love having an offer from the vouchers at $100 spend for 2K bonus points (that I hadn't triggered) then getting a shopping docket one for $60 for 2K. No prizes for guessing which one I used.

The only negative is that I went on to spend $228, so if I'd been smarter I'd have shopped twice and scooped them both up :eek:

Could you have stacked them? (that’s what I love about FB!!)
I’ve only seen triple points offers on dockets recently, nice find!

If I could have been bothered to split my shopping, or asked the check-out lady, but there were also 2 or 3 people in the line and I'm not too fussed about 2K bonus points (870 VA points isn't a lot to cry over). I can't go back and get it now, the $100 offer is now over.

I scored 2 triple point offers recently from my shopping dockets (one put to excellent use):

Thank you @PDog for making me log into my account, have another Triple Point offer one sitting there (must have been put there in last 24 hours - aaarrgh :(, just realised it's KMart and not Coles).

I've got 5 or 6 active Coles fuel offers that I will go and hand to people pumping petrol at the close by Coles Express. Random acts of kindness never goes astray in my karma.

I've been getting an assortment of both in-app coupons and docket coupons. Does anyone know if they can all be stacked? For example I have an in-app coupon of 1000 points for $100 spend in Coles, plus I also have two docket coupons of 2000 points for $120 spend and 2500 points for $150 spend. If I activate the in-app coupon, purchase $150 of groceries and then scan both docket coupons, would I essentially collect 5500 bonus points for the single shop that exceeds the min requirements for all coupons? I tried asking the lady at self-serve checkout and she seemed unsure.

I had to call about another issue a couple of days ago (they locked my online account, and that requires a call to fix) and mentioned the missing apple points and they were credited as adjustments a day or so later.
