Have you joined the hordes of weekend DIYers visiting Bunnings to knock out a pet project? Since December 2021, you’ve been able to earn Flybuys points for every dollar spent in-store.

But now, that capability has been expanded to online purchases! Bunnings carries a much larger range of ‘Special Orders’ online – so for savvy shoppers, you’ll be able to earn points even faster.

Meanwhile, you’ve already been able to earn Flybuys points with Officeworks purchases online and in-store. Convert Flybuys Points to Velocity Points and fly on Virgin Australia or its partner airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Etihad and Air Canada.

How do I use points at Bunnings and Officeworks?

You can redeem your Flybuys points for Bunnings and Officeworks gift cards at the standard rate of 10,000 Flybuys Points = $50 (that’s still 0.5 cents per point). So if you save 72,000 Flybuys Points, you could enjoy $350 worth of gift cards with some points spare.

Of course, at Point Hacks we still recommend you convert your Flybuys points to Velocity Points and enjoy a trip somewhere for greater value. Those 72,000 Flybuys points convert to 36,000 Velocity Points, which could fetch you a trip from Brisbane to Fiji in Business Class worth $875. That’s more than twice the value of gift cards!

Fly Air Canada Business Class from Sydney to Vancouver for 104,000 Velocity Points (equivalent to 208,000 Flybuys points).

Summing up

Bunnings is a great one-stop-shop for anything hardware, of course. And you might not know it, but Officeworks is worth considering when you’re shopping for tech. Thanks to the price guarantee policy, Officeworks will beat a competitor’s price by 5% if its own price is higher. I’ve used this multiple times to save hundreds of dollars. Earning one Flybuys point per dollar on top is just the icing on the cake.

We’re not surprised that Bunnings is joining the Flybuys program, and Officeworks is rejoining after leaving in 2009. Both companies are owned by Wesfarmers, which has strong ties to the Coles Group and Flybuys. This news is a great win for Flybuys’ eight million members, as Bunnings and Officeworks are popular stores with many locations around Australia.
