Earn bonus points on everyday purchases with flybuys, Velocity and Qantas.

Pick up extra reward and frequent flyer points on everything from unlocking your phone to servicing your car with this week's Rewards Roundup. Happy points chasing!

Earn flybuys points when you unlock your phone

Flybuys has launched a new way for members to earn points just for opening their phone. As we reported earlier this week, flybuys partnered with Aussie startup Unlockd to release the new Unlock Rewards app.

If you have an Android smartphone, you can download the app and collect flybuys points when you opt in to view curated ads, content or offers when you unlock your device. When the ad pops up, you can either swipe to dismiss it or click through for more info if you like what you see.

When you view the ads, you’ll have the chance to earn up to 1,000 flybuys points per month. So over 12 months, you could earn 12,000 flybuys points just from looking at a few ads. That could get you $60 off your shop every year. This isn’t a massive reward, but it’s an easy way to pick up bonus points without spending anything.

Plus, since we’re constantly bombarded by ads anyway, you may as well earn some flybuys in the process!

How to earn a bonus 3,000 Velocity Points on your next car service

Getting your car serviced isn’t the most exciting purchase for most of us, but Velocity is giving frequent flyers an extra reason to do it this month.

If you book and complete an eligible service with Midas by 2 September 2017, you’ll collect a bonus 3,000 Velocity Points. This is on top of the standard 2 points per $1 you’d usually earn on your service! So, if you got an extensive service valued at $369, you’d score 3,738 Velocity Points. Not bad, huh?

You can make your booking by calling 13 MIDAS, booking online or in any Midas Service Centre. Once the service is completed, you can expect that sweet, sweet bonus points bounty in your Velocity account within 7 days or so.
