The Flybuys double status credit offer is back for December 2018. Under the offer, you will earn 2 Status Credits for each $100 spend at eligible retailers – up from the usual 1 Status Credit for each $100 of spend.
The normal spend maximum of $1,000 per month will still apply during the promotion period. So, while you would normally earn a maximum of 10 Status Credits in a month, during December you will be able to earn 20 status credits.
Earning Status Credits with Flybuys
Under the partnership with FlyBuys, you can earn 1 Status Credit for each $100 of spend in eligible merchants each month. The spend is calculated by totaling the spend at Coles, Coles online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor each month. As mentioned, only the first $1,000 of spend across the eligible retailers is counted.
To earn status credits with Flybuys you need to link your Flybuys account to your Velocity account. If you haven’t already done so, you can link your accounts from the Flybuys site.
After linking your accounts, Status Credits are offered only on spend from the day of linking. So, if you were to link today, any spend earlier in the month will not count. Linking accounts does not affect any other aspect of earning through FlyBuys, so there is little reason not to do it.
Once linked, they will tally your spend each month, and will then apply the Status Credits to your Velocity account. Usually this occurs within a few days after the end of the month, but can sometimes take up to two weeks.
You do not need to spend $100 in single transactions. It is just the total across the month – any size transaction will do.
