Fly Buys and Torpedo7 are running a bonus Fly Buys offer for members who make a purchase online or in-store until midnight 18 June 2018.
This offer effectively works out to be a minimum ~1.9% rebate on purchases, based on Fly Buys having a value of 16.6 cents NZD where redeemed on flight rewards with helloworld.
Note that while you will not earn Fly Buys points on gift card purchases, you will earn Fly Buys when paying with a gift card.
Guide to earning Fly Buys at Torpedo7
You can earn 1 Fly Buys point for every $25 you spend at Torpedo7, either in-store or online.
Just show your physical or app-based Fly Buys card in-store, or enter your membership number online when you check out.
Once you’re on the final check-out page, you’ll have the option to enter your Fly Buys membership number
Online, the number of Fly Buys points you will earn when purchasing an individual item will be displayed next to the product listing, or on that item’s product page.
These pants will see you earn 15 Fly Buys points under the current promotion. That’s about $2.50 NZD in value where put towards a domestic Air New Zealand flight redemption.
To see the total number of points you’ll earn based on all items you plan to purchase, you’ll first need to click ‘Add to Cart’ to add the item(s) to your shopping cart, and then go to the shopping cart itself.
Given you can ‘click & collect’ for free, I would personally use this as a way to be sure of how many points I will earn on my purchase before heading to the store. If there is no Torpedo7 store near you, they offer the ability to collect your purchase from The Warehouse stores across the country.
Summing Up: Key points you should know
- You’ll earn 1 Fly Buys points per $25 spent in-store or online
- To earn Fly Buys points in-store, customers will need to present their physical membership card at the register. If purchasing online, just enter your number when checking out.
While the earn rate is nothing spectacular, it’s still a chance to earn some extra points from everyday purchases.
Torpedo7 accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners) with no transaction fees, which provides a good opportunity to double dip and earn points through card spend too.
If you’re like me and use an American Express Platinum Edge to maximise flexibility with your points earn, you should first purchase a Torpedo7 Gift Card from any of the following supermarkets:
- Farro Fresh
- New World
That way, you’ll earn 3 Membership Rewards points per $1 spent on your planned purchases, as opposed to only 1 point per $1 if using your Amex with Torpedo7 directly.
You can use your gift card in-store or online.
