You are reading into the delay in posting way too much, as you can see by the thread it has occurred previously. Velocity can hardly afford to lose a partner at this time (I.e purchased points = income).

As for your comment on who is going to swipe, your assumption is that everyone is equally engaged in the program and activates all the offers etc. In reality that isn’t the case. No different to how QFF has 10m members and not all of them are equally active within the program.
No I'm not doing anything of the kind. I clearly stated that I know that my own experience is obviously not representative of all flybuys members.

I do however believe that a good portion of flybuys members are savvy about such matters, the ones that aren't probably don't even bother with flybuys in the first place.

Regardless, I was asked why it wouldn't surprise me if flybuys disappeared. All I did was relate what I've noticed. They may or may not be writing on the wall. To be honest, not too much would shock me as the next 6 months unfolds. That's not to imply that I feel confidently about flybuys stability one way or another, I'm hardly in a position to have a concrete opinion on that. Just that it wouldn't surprise me.

Only the 9th of the month but no Coles status credits have appeared.
Usually the 3rd or 4th of the month for me.
Same. Nothing yet and I had 10 coming my way.
Well, with the reasonable likelihood of Virgin and Velocity vanishing by August, status will be irrelevant.

My 10 credits for the month of March came through early this morning. Little late but no big deal really considering the current state of earth..

Ahhh dammit they were dated 31/3 and I set up pooling to my wife last week so they have gone to my account not hers :(

As mentioned above by our colleague, FB and VFF and VA are different entities.
Things can change, and like ebay now no longer a FB partner, you can still earn VFF points by buying from the VFF store, which is like ebay.
FB is owned/linked to Coles directly.
The relationship might go off, like FB and EY (Etihad), (they used to be partners), so FB and VFF (liaison/relationship) might be kaput in a few months, touch wood hope not, but but FB will always be there, unless Coles closes it down, or the company that runs it closes it down.
Maybe the time will come when we will see, that we won't be able to transfer FB points to VFF points, I guess that will be that the "it" ie, finality of the relationship, have to wait and see.
