Why you need to buy a Netflix gift card this week
Get 2,000 flybuys points for something you're already paying for anyway.
Supermarkets regularly run promotions where purchasers of Netflix gift cards get bonus supermarket reward points. As I write, Coles is offering 2,000 flybuys points on a $50 Netflix gift card, which is as generous as I've ever seen this offer get. Often I see 1,000 points for the same dollar amount, or a requirement to buy a more expensive card to get any points.
The hack: Pick up a gift card this week
To score those sweet bonus points, just pick up a $50 Netflix gift card at your nearest Coles before Wednesday 3 March 2020, and make sure your flybuys card gets scanned before you pay. You can use a self-serve checkout, but the attendant will need to authorise the purchase.
Our detailed guide to Netflix bonus points offers explains how to add that gift card to your account. Don't panic about messing up your subscription; once your gift card credit is used up, Netflix just goes back to your existing payment method (usually a stored credit or debit card).
A bonus tip: convert your flybuys points into Velocity Points to maximise their value. They're worth more when you redeem them for flights than for anything else. Happy viewing!
