One of few flybuys offers on the market, the 70,000 bonus flybuys points offered on the Citi Rewards Platinum could be redeemed for $350 worth of flybuys Dollars to spend at Coles and other partners. Ongoing, it earns 1 Citi reward Point per $1 on eligible spend and 1.33 Citi reward Points can be exchanged for 1 flybuys point (you must transfer a minimum of 2,000 points at a time).
