Flybuys Hacks to Earn Free Flights
If you're a Flybuys member and shop at Coles every week, you're probably disappointed with the lack of meaningful rewards. Sure, you might score $10 off your shopping every once in a blue moon.

Upcoming Webinar:
How to Redeem Points to Europe
**Bonus webinar for Premium Economy, Business & First Class members**

Want to redeem your frequent flyer points for a holiday to Europe? You're not alone! Many Australians save up their points in the hope of travelling to Europe in Business or First Class... but the competition for award seats is intense, especially if you wish to travel during the peak European summer period of June-August.

It is most definitely possible to fly from Australia to Europe in comfort and style, using your frequent flyer points - even during the school holidays. But some preparation, skill and a bit of luck is required. The key is knowing when to book, which frequent flyer programs to use and how to find award availability on flights that aren't shown online.

In the upcoming Frequent Flyer Solutions webinar at 8pm (AEST) on Wednesday 28 August, Matt will show you how to effectively redeem your points to destinations across Europe in all classes of travel. As well as how to redeem Qantas and Virgin Velocity points, he will also introduce several excellent international frequent flyer programs.

This is an exclusive bonus webinar for Premium Economy, Business Class & First Class members of Frequent Flyer Solutions! Learn more about Frequent Flyer Solutions membership →
