Cole's supermarkets new fly buys promotion!

Coles are promoting a new fly buys deal where I think what you do is purchase five products that are on special that add up to at least $50, and with that you will receive a ten pecent discount. I noticed Dawn French is all over the tv and internet promoting this new offer. I couldn't help wondering why Coles did not hire a "typically Aussie celebrity" to promote this deal. I am already terribly tired of this ad being presented by Dawn French who is not only ridiculously wealthy, but I don't think she is Australian, am I wrong? or do you too wonder where Coles is coming from!

Butterfly says: I think that the number of points needed is higher because Flybuys has changed how points are earned. They say that you you can now earn points from the first $ (it was $5) and there are lots of ways to earn extra points. Therefore the value of the points is less, and more are needed to 'buy' a product or service.

About Dawn French ... I avoid her by not watching TV, and I ignoring her on the net :) Reply

Jeollie says: The actual Coles My 5 promo that you mention is actually a bit different to what you desribed. You choose 5 items, from logging into the website. It actually comesup with suggestions, which were MY actual most purchased items and then other items that I have purchased while on special. So it obviously monitors your sales on the Fly Buys card data for each member! But you choose 5 for your choice and then when you purchase any of those items and are spending over $50 you receive 10% off those items only. I have noticed it comes up on the bottom of the receipt as My5 discount.. Reply
