They sent me a cheeky spend $100 for 2K bonus points earlier this week (but with a limited mid week date range)- their system would have known I've already met Week 1 on my $80/week for 4 offer

but I chose not to bite. Instead I did a $60 shop for work (staff amenities) and secured a "triple points offer" on the docket valid until 4 September (nicely falls within my Week 2 requirement). Love playing the game.
I've had basically the same scenario this week with just the dollar amount varying. I've completed Week 1 of a $50/week for 4 weeks offer. Was sent a "Spend $70 mid-week for 2000 points" which I didn't take up. Spent $1 in a Coles today and received a triple points coupon which will still be valid for my Week 2 shop...

15,000 points for $250 spend.
Expires Friday and I’ve already hit my status credit limit, so might leave this one & cross my fingers for another next week.

Wow, that’s an offer worth considering @PDog but understand your thoughts for letting it lapse. Pity it’s not transferable :(

Received a 6600 points/$110 spend. Tempting, but I'm on a 4 week/10000 points run already on another card.

Absolutely. And I took advantage of a couple of these (admittedly not quite as good) recently, so we’re stocked up!

I got offered a get 1000 points per $100 Coles Gift MasterCard with a max of 10,000 points.

However after buying 7 on the 25th Aug and 3 on the 28th.

I have only received 1000 points.

I think there is something setup wrongly with the offer.

How do I fix this? Is there a support email?

They usually respond to facebook messages.

But, if my memory is correct, there were often delays with processing the bonus points for these cards. This may not occur until AFTER the end of the promotion.

I've been flooded with increasingly larger bonus point offers from Liquorland and FirstChoice, but have enough wine already...

I activated another one from Liquorland ($30 for 1,500 bonus points) to try and get them to desist...

I wouldn't bother contacting them yet.

Points don't post until the end of the promotion from my past experiences.

I only got 525 points from a purchase I made of 5 cards 3 days ago.

14,400 points for $240, 1-Sep to 4-Sep

Activated and earnt :) This card had a 4 x week offer that I let lapse in week 1, this popped up in week 2.

Made the 4 weeks x $80 for 10,000 on a second card not worth doing this week, I wonder if an offer will pop up on this card next week

Bold assumption if you think their systems are in sync and keeping up with your spending habits.

Nice one.
After skipping my 15,000 for $250 offer at the end of last month they repeated it immediately so I too shopped up a storm yesterday!

They’ll have now seen that I didn’t bite on the mid week offer but did a $210 shop on Saturday. Did piggy back a number of individual offers (selected items and other bonus point offers).

Big data points for Coles algorithm to ruminate and cogitate over and let’s see what they offer next. Love playing the game - makes shopping so much more fun.

I was spending at the $70 level, they've now pulled that on me and the last offer I got was for $90 x 4.

I let it go. Hopefully not a sign of offers to come.

Their systems are so far out of sync it's not funny. I didn't bite at $110 offer early in the week and they increased offer to $130 for second half of the week.

There has to be some disconnect if they keep increasing offers when a person doesn't spend.

I'm about to signup my wife to Flybuys in the hope the realistic spend offers return.

Apart from the 4 week offer for 10,000 points, I have noticed that the product offers have all but dried up. Didn't even get the boosters last round.
