Other hacks to earn flybuys points

Here are three other ways you can earn more flybuys points as you spend.

Use a rewards credit card

Coles has a range of credit cards that offer flybuys points for every $1 spent on the account. The Coles No Annual Fee Mastercard offers 0.5 points per $1 spent (or 1 point per $2 spent), while the Coles Rewards Mastercard rewards 2 points per $1 spent on eligible purchases. These cards sometimes offer thousands of bonus points on sign up, so you should check out the specific card review for the latest promotions.

If you use one of these credit cards at a retail partner, you can earn points twice: once with your flybuys card and once through the credit card. You can compare Coles credit cards on Finder for a full overview of the rewards, fees and features you can expect.

Transfer partnered points

If you have a Citi Rewards credit card, you can exchange your Citi reward Points for flybuys points. You must transfer a minimum of 2,000 Citi reward Points and the exchange rates will vary depending on the type of credit card you have.

  • Citi Premier card. 1 Citi reward Point = 1 flybuys point.
  • Citi Rewards card. 1.33 Citi reward Points = 1 flybuys point.
  • Citi Classic and Citi Gold cards. 2 Citi reward Points = 1 flybuys point.

Look for bonus points deals

Flybuys and its partners regularly run bonus points promotions. Depending on the offer, you may be able to earn more points per $1 spent with a partnered retailer. You can see the latest bonus points offers when you log into your flybuys account.


Now that you know how to earn more points as you shop, you can use Finder's guide to flybuys points for tips to redeem them.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you are referring to adding flybuys points to your Weight Watchers account, that may not be possible.

      However, if you have flybuys account, you can earn one point per dollar spent on a weight-loss plan from Weight Watchers. You can also get 5,000 bonus points for signing up to an online coaching or group coaching plan before 30 June 2017.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
