    Aside from the above conditions, and some other ones e.g. you can only get the discount off 5 items in each transaction/each day (even if you buy more), it takes 3 days to set up and then can't be changed, this offer also expires 31 October.

    I saw this on A Current Affair too last night....

    My address should still be valid, since I claimed a $25 giftcard less than a year ago.... :D

    I haven't been shopping much at Coles lately, as there is only a Caltex station near me.

    Wish they will open up more Shell/Coles Express stations!! :p

    Wonder what ideas and offers Woolies has to jump on the band wagon with next. All good though for me, as I prefer shopping at Coles as my docket is usually correct-Woolies has been out so many times for me-with wrong Deli labels, the scales incorrectly weighing, mouldy strawberries and capsicums etc.

    Does it say anywhere if your current points will rollover?

    Also wonder what groups you can pick for the discount... hope there is a nappies/baby wipes category.

    I saw in the paper that the new card will carry over points from its existing FlyBuys card.
  • queenshrew2012/04/20 19:09:14
    Yeah, on their facebook page, it does say your existing points will be adjusted to reflect the new rewards program too.

    On top of that, your points will never expire!
    In the past, I had lots of my points expire.. It was really hard to save up for something decent as I kept forgetting to claim. Quite annoying to be honest.. :(
    Glad they fixed that this time around!

    I have heard your old points will be multiplied by 1.6 (sorry i cant confirm this just yet)

    Under the new program points will be worth half a cent each.

    Just another program that you might as well join up and be a part of as it's free - but you never really get much out of.. at least this is a 10% off bonus, even if only on a few items. oh WHY can't they be as good as Buckscoop?!?! in a few years on Buckscoop I've gotten over $500 in cashback - and I think I have enough flybuy points to get a $25 voucher (in roughly the same time)

    in this news.com.au story, they have a link to the list of products covered by the my5 scheme. (eg Bananas are included, but grapes not). Coles estimate this scheme will save shoppers $4 per week on their shopping bill.

    The ad I just saw said that to get the 10%, it's a minimum $50 shop.

    Yes it is $50 minimum spend.

    Rant Warning -

    What really gets me about these schemes is how they keep scamming the public into thinking that its a good deal. Both Coles and Woolies make gazillions of dollars each year so for me to have to spend $10,000 just to get a flight for one person from Syd to Mel is bloody ridiculous! Buckscoopers have posted bargain flights for not much more than a beer at the local pub so I figure that for me to spend $10k at Coles just to get a flight is just mental. I make a heck of a lot more in Buckscoop cashback than what I will with Coles or Woolies loyalty points...my loyalty lies with the best prices and the Buckscoop cashback that I get :)

    They will actually.

    Here's what they say:

    "Your points will NEVER expire. Simply earn or redeem at least once a year"

    What this "marketing speak" actually means is:

    "Your points WILL expire if you do not earn or redeem at least once a year"

    I consider their wording as misleading advertising and wish it would be stamped out.

    I guess what they really mean is "Your points will never expire - as long as you are our customer!" ;)

    I actually don't mind this offer. We don't shop at Coles or Woolies alot maybe once a month as our nearest store is an hour away. But when I do shop its a big shop and alot of the more expensive items so hitting the $50minimum spend won't be an issue and on things like drynites at $16 a pack i'll be saving $1.60 each pack I usually buy 2 a month so I can see real savings to be made on items like these.

    As for flybuys its self we usually get aprox $100 voucher a year but with the new way of doing it its alot easier to claim and use points, there is also more ways to earn points eg telstra mobile recharge we will now do through coles, target etc to get the bonus points.

    All in all I'm happy something for nothing is always good :)

    When it was announced, it was stated it would end at that date.
