We are feeling soooo unloved 😭 After 2 sets of 4wk 10Ks, nothing for 3 weeks.

Not even a one-off shop offer but we did get 4x coupon mailing - cost saving? Runs through to Marh 2021. In all the years of the coupon mailing we've never had one that went past Xmas!

Just started a 4 week/$60/10,000 points.

Been getting a few free sample offers as well last few days trying to get me to try some new brands that just launched.

Your pets are crying out to have accounts opened in their names.

Of course they need to be over 18 though. :)

$70 per week for 3 weeks at Liquorland = 10,000 bonus points. Will do this one.

4 accounts received this type of offer:
1 for $70
1 for $80
2 accounts had spend targets of $40. I will go at least one of these.

Great offer, although I see my "reserves" are increasing - perfect for XMAS!!
Post automatically merged:

Also, I see Liquorland currently have a 2000 points for $50 spend this week, so can stack with that.

I had an offer for 4800 bonus on $120 spend between 28 Nov and 1 Dec 2020. Shopped on Saturday. Normally these points get credited straight away, but this time I only got the regular bonus. See what happens after the promotion finishes. I bought 2 x mobile recharges which are not excluded per the terms and conditions (unlike Woolies).

A bunch of offers coming through for the next 3 days starting tomorrow. Two of them received a few low spends which I haven't seen before - $30 spend for 1800 points. One less attractive of $160 spend for 6400 points.

Spend $110 for 6.6k ($33) points which is a 30% return.
Datapoint - what would your typical weekly/main shop spend be? $80-90?

Going through posts for the last few months make it obvious that the 'algorithms' have been enhanced, as well as existing spending variants being tweaked to create varying gaps between successive offers.

Perhaps the CV shutdowns saw one C employee too many delve into social media & make an alarming (for C) discovery. :(

Seems some offers are taking longer to be credited than others. I hit three separate product offers within my last $60/3600 point offer, but only one product offer has been credited. Slightly annoying as I bet I'll have to follow this up.

Since start of October only been doing top-up shops (under $20) at Coles. Before that I had been spending up to $100 weekly plus taking up some gc offers.

A warning my flybys number mysteriously dropped off my account. When trying to add it back in it won't work. Have escalated to customer support.

Are you talking about Flybuys account?? That would seem odd as that is your ID (and email of course). That said, I've noticed my First Choice Liquor Accounts losing their Flybuys ID and I keep on having to put them back in again. It hasn't caused me any grief with points posting however.

You probably already know this..
FlyBuys has TWO numbers per card - member {account} number and {individual} card number where the final two digits are different {eg 0117 account / 0112 card on this account}

I was talking about it dropping off my FC account. Unsure now about whether bonus points will post.
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Having to follow these ones up. Very annoying. I also realised I hadn't been given my second lot of 3600 points.

Spend $50 at Liquorland for 2,000pts.

This will stack nicely with the final week of the $70 each week for 3 weeks = 10,000pts.
