If you have your dockets - check to see if Wk 4 had 'Congratulations' section at the bottom. If not, look through the previous weeks to see which one did not scan. Then call up and ask nicely, 'I did the shop, I have the docket number if you want to look it up to confirm...."

Otherwise you are most unlikely to ever see the 10K points.

They all scanned. I have the points for all 4 shops. Just not the 10,000 bonus points.

They were all using the same FB account weren't they(which your post included above suggests they were)?

Did you get the "Congratulations" on the bottom part of your 4th week's docket?

Call them, if it did not say "Congratulations" then it is unlikely to ever get posted to your account.

I don’t have the dockets anymore but recollection is week 2 had the acknowledgement on the docket but for some reason the offer did not reappear the next week as they usually do. I went and did the weeks 3 & 4 shops anyway fully expecting nothing to post. Always figured I will need to query it. Prefer not to waste my time calling if possible though. Do we still have @flybuys here to assist?

Datapoint - what would your typical weekly spend (in one transaction) average?
Per transaction around $40 as I do multiple small spends.
Post automatically merged:

No 4 week promotion instead a $150 for 6,000 points for Saturdays to Tuesday.
So they dropped the offer by $10 spend to $140 and took 400 points bonus points.

Over this and last week there've been (last week) offers of either $70 for 2,800 points or $80 for 3,200 points - none activated.

This week so far have seen a couple of $90 spend for 3,600 points.

Given weekly spends always (just coincidentally of course) $50.ZX - curious that they're trying to tempt by increasing the single spend amount from $70 to $90.

4*50 on both of our accounts
last week this stacked on my account with a $110 for 4k and $90 for 2k that had date overlaps (unusual but welcome)
So got the 4 week offer off to a good start!

Curious to see what your next 4 wk offer spend will be. The $110 spend & $90 spend were on the 1 a/c?

Yep. I'll trim back spend for the next three weeks to only be just over the $50 threshold, unless I'm tempted higher. But couldn't resist spending an extra $60 to get $30 back, on top of the 4 week offer.

Interesting one today; 7000 points for spending $20 on health and beauty in one shop each week for four weeks.

That's a big ask, especially considering that anything of value in that category has such significant, regular discounting that I've effectively been trained to only buy things when on sale.

Edit, for reference: Health & Beauty categories: Skin Care, Hair Care, Hair Accessories, Cosmetics, Toiletries, Soaps & Body Wash, Womens & Mens Deodorant & Grooming, Dental Health, Medicinal, First Aid, Vitamins, Sanitary Protection, Health & Beauty Travel & Gifting

So not as good as buying when on their regular half price specials!

Lack of love continues with offers of 3,200 for $80, or 3,600 for $90 spend when normal spend per account is $50.XY

Also, considering we've made perhaps 2 purchases in a Coles Express in the last decade - last three weeks have seen more than 6 offers per account for Coles Express spending.

As buying petrol there virtually ceased once they removed the ability to use Coles cards to pay for it - we're not exactly prime candidates given so long between (car) drinks.

Good one. I've had that in the past, but not on any of my accounts. Have two 4 week offers on the go at the moment for 10k points.

Is Coles kidding me? After a $80 x 4 weeks offer of 10K points, I just got a $100 x 2 weeks for 3K points. Wtf? Need a 10% return minimum

I haven’t have a 4 week offer for a while but got the same $100 x 2 weeks for 3k offer as you did.
