Has anyone else had a total loss of targeted offers? Last year in the last 6 months to Xmas I consistently got 2k, 5k and 10k offers for various small and large spend options, same for the missus on our shared account. Since Christmas a few boosters and small offers, since April, zero offers and zero boosters. Pretty similar story with Woolworths too, not sure what I’m doing wrong...

Not really.
I've just finished a 4 x $80 spend for 10,000 points, I've had a couple which I ignored before that as they were $150+. I've got boosters, and random offers- all that's been missing for us is the one large spend for xx,xxx points (sadly, they were great!)

How many accounts do you have?

If you don't have at least 5 then that's what you are doing wrong.

Just received an offer of 2000 points for $150 spend. I have had several of these and ignored them all.

I haven't spent $150 in one shop since Christmas

Just finished a 4 week/$60/10,000 point run.

Now received a $60/2000 point offer.
Also have a 50x points offer for Palmolive and a 3x points "biggest shop" offer.
That'll all stack nicely.

Received a 2000 points for $90. 2 accounts both got $50 for 1000 points and another account received squat, although did just come off a 10k for $60 * 4.

Just finished a 4 * 50 for 10k points. Rewarded with offer of 250 bonus points for buying Morning Fresh dish washing liquid. Offer can be redeemed TWICE. This is unusual for me as usually offers can be redeemed once or unlimited times. New strategy perhaps?

They're looking to achieve repetitive behaviour, as patterns becomes a habit. Will probably mean 14 days + of continued usage, viewing brand name during each use of product. Clever marketing IMHO

Checked the phone app and saw I had these offers. If I met the $170 spend today would they stack for 5000 points?

I would check the validity dates of the 4 days left'' offer in case it doesn't start until tomorrow.

Strange but this offer above ended up being able to stack. The spend dates missed overlapping by 1 day. So nice surprise to see 5000 points instead of 2500. Does this happen regularly for others? I don’t often get deals with dates so close together.

I've received two 2000 points for $100 spend within a week, being away and not spending over Easter comes with its advantages! Also great timing having the bonus on the transfer in May so effectively 10 velocity points per $1 spent.

Ugh, Re-read the TandC from the Palmolive offer after the points landed as they weren't there.

Offer not available in conjunction with other bonus offers. Boo. At least I didn't buy a lot of it.

Do people still get printed coupons in the mail? haven't got any for six months, would be great to have them to stack with the online offers..

There is a batch of coupons out at the moment but the deals aren't any good.

Flybuys usually slow down the bonus points in the last financial quarter. Look out for good offers after July 1.
