My sister just told me she got a 4 week $130 spend for 20,000 points. Given her normal spend is $150+ she is happy to take up and get $100 discount.
Gotta dip your toes in everywhere...And just after posting that I preferred EDR came my offer of a $50 spend for 4 weeks for 10000 points plus an extra 1000 points per week if $10 of that was on Coles branded products.
This one we can do.
Abstinence works - I have finally got my offer down to $50 per week.
I assume you have more than one FB card. This allows you to rest cards when the offers are too high until they reach an amenable level.This just arrived landed for me:

I wonder if I should bother with this offer (representing a 12.5% cash-back) or wait it out for a lower offer. In fairness, though I suspect I could probably spend $100/week on groceries at Coles, although the concern then is that they raise it up to $130 or $160 or some other god awful amount for minuscule points.

Re: the email address, I've used it many times and it is painful. They take so long to get back to you, ask for extra details that have already been provided and just drag it out. If you persist they are generally pretty good. but I'm hoping @flybuys can confirm or otherwise my suspicions that it is a strategy to ask further questions on the hope people will give up. The direct call help is not an option for the majority and the email experience is deplorable.My experience is actually quite different. Woolies often has the more lucrative offers (e.g. earn 6000 points by spending $30 in week 1, $40 in week 2 and $50 in week 3 meanwhile all the Coles offers for a couple thousand points expect me to spend over a hundred for several weeks). I will agree that Woolies is easier to chase down for points although FlyBuys does have an email address you can use if you just want to jot off a quick message about missing points and aren't in a rush for points to appear in your account. In terms of Coles vs Woolies, Coles tends to have a better selection of ready made food (e.g. "fresh" pizzas and Youfoodz selection). However, for me the clincher is the free home delivery from Woolies which I get since I'm in a high risk group.
I agree but most consumers are not reading AFF or OZB so are likely to be unaware how less generous their individual offers are compared to others.Does seem that the higher spenders don't get rewarded as they generally recurve the standard 10k for their level of spending.
I realise it's all about getting the consumer to spend whatever amount their data says at Coles, just the usual happening of they loyal don't get rewarded.
You might want to keep a watch on this, I just finished the same ofer. Got a reminder each week via email, offer status was printed onthe docket each time and 10,000 points after the final spend posted within 1 day.I just finished an offer for $50 x weeks = 10k points. Noticed I didn't get a reminder email this (the final) week and couldn't find the offer activated in the app or on the website. Spent $60 last week and it's in my activity, so didn't void the offer.
Spent $50 yesterday regardless, but no points yet. Will be interesting to see if they show.
