Flybuys recently launched a new mobile game, Shake 'n' Shop, that allows members to score bonus point offers from partner businesses including Coles, eBay, Target, Liquorland, flybuys travel and First Choice Liquor.
How does it work? Download the flybuys app and "catch" deals that fall from the sky into your virtual trolley. You need to shake your phone for deals to appear. There are over 50 different offers available including up to 10x points on eBay purchases and 20,000 bonus points when you book any trip with flybuys Travel. Members can play the game three times per day and can claim one offer per day, which needs to be activated in the offers tab.
These offers are in addition to bonus points you can already claim through the flybuys app, online or in-store.
Hurry, this offer expires Sunday 17 March, 2019.
Score 100 bonus points when transferring flybuys points to Velocity
Velocity is offering members a 100 point bonus on points transfers from flybuys rewards. This equates to an 11.4% transfer bonus. Normally you would receive 870 Velocity Points when you convert 2,000 flybuys points.
It's important to note that this offer may be targeted. Check your registered email address for the offer. Additionally, bonus points earned can take up to five weeks after the promotional period to be credited.
First home buyers receive double Velocity Points with Virgin Money
New Virgin Money customers who apply and are approved for a Virgin Money Reward Me home loan with a loan to value (LVR) ratio of 90% or below will receive 2,000 Velocity Points for every full $10,000 drawn at settlement.
This is double the regular bonus points offer of 1,000 Velocity Points per $10,000 drawn. For construction loans, Velocity Points will be paid after the first drawing (paid in $10,000 increments). Points will be credited to the primary borrower's Velocity account. These points may take up to 60 days after settlement to appear.
