Flybuys is Australia’s most extensive loyalty program with many partners. These partners sometimes have amazing promotions that will nab you tens of thousands of Flybuys Points – which could be enough to score some serious rewards. Think of a Virgin Australia Business Class flight or a few hundred dollars off your supermarket shop.

20x Flybuys points on Ultimate gift cards

Expiry: From 21 February to 27 February 2024

For one week, collect 20x bonus Flybuys points on all Ultimate Birthday, Celebrate, Home, Everyone and Teens gift cards. Of particular note is the ‘Everyone’ card that can be used at a wide range of retailers, including JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys and IKEA.

Important: This week, you can earn points on up to five gift cards per Flybuys account. Gift card denominations range up to $100, so this promotion is good up to $500 worth of gift cards.

Check the latest Coles catalogue in your area for more details.

Example: points earned with a 20x bonus:

For offers with a 20x bonus points component, here are some examples of the points you can earn (subject to the weekly limits):

  • $50 gift card: 1,000 Flybuys Points (worth $5 or 500 Velocity Points).

  • $100 gift card: 2,000 Flybuys Points (worth $10 or 1,000 Velocity Points).

  • $200 gift card: 4,000 Flybuys Points (worth $20 or 2,000 Velocity Points).

  • $500 gift card: 10,000 Flybuys Points (worth $50 or 5,000 Velocity Points).

Example: what you can do with a 20x bonus:

If you purchased $2,000 worth of gift cards to help cover the price of your next purchase, you’d also earn 40,000 Flybuys points. That’s easily worth $200 at the checkout, or 20,000 Velocity Points – more than enough for a free domestic Economy or Business Class reward seat on certain routes (plus taxes).

  • Perth-Sydney one-way in Economy (17,800 pts + taxes).
  • Brisbane-Darwin one-way in Economy (17,800 pts + taxes).
  • Adelaide-Melbourne one-way in Business (15,500 pts + taxes).
  • Hobart-Melbourne one-way in Economy and return in Business (23,300 pts + taxes).

The cheapest Virgin Australia reward flight is 7,800 points + taxes (converted from 15,600 Flybuys points). You’ll need to buy at least $780 of gift cards to have enough Velocity Points for a reward flight if starting from a zero balance.

Summing up

Big Flybuys points offers can be found with its various partners – especially the bigger companies that want you to sign-up for an ongoing service.

Be sure to check the promotion terms and conditions carefully and shop around with other providers. It mightn’t always work in your favour to earn more Flybuys points on a product that’s overpriced compared to its competitors.

But if the deal fits your needs, then it could give your Flybuys balance an extra boost, which will help you reach those coveted travel goals sooner.
