Get it Faster – You Lucky, Lucky Thing

New Zealand's Top Mummy Blogger Parenting Travel Blog Family Saben Tilly

There are certain items you covet for a while, quite sure that you need them but ‘Life’ forces you to bump them down the wishlist over and over again.  Usually these are the pretty things, the luxe things, basically the things that don’t feed your kids or put new tyres on the car!

The classic Saben Tilly has been on my list for far too long, sadly overruled by the boring-things-first list but the wait is over.  She’s mine! 

As is usually the case, I remember to check my Fly Buys balance around twice a year and have a quick look around, adding things to my wishlist as I go. This time, Tilly didn’t need to go on my wishlist; :::::::::: s h u t   u p ::::::::::: I said to myself when I realised that I could use Points + Cash and order her right away!  $100 dollars and 729 points later, Tilly is here.  I treated myself without blowing the bank and the best part is the kids won’t be eating baked beans until payday because mama got a new purse.

Everybody wins!

There’s no denying that as a consumer, patience is quickly becoming a virtue better suited to a bygone era.  We want instant customer service, overnight delivery (if same day isn’t available), the ability to do everything online and we don’t want to have to wait for reward points to trickle in when that Saben Tilly had already been waiting far too long!  Fly Buys Points + Cash is flexible, you can use it to make the most of your Fly Buys points and save money by not paying full retail for those wishlist items.

Next year will mark my 20th Anniversary as a Fly Buys member.  So, since 1997 (Fly Buys launched in 1996 – early adopter?  YES!)  I’ve been saving up and treating myself to rewards simply by shopping at my favourite stores and keeping my business with Fly Buys brand partners.  I was interested to find out how many rewards I’d actually redeemed over my long membership so put a call through to the call centre.

Twenty rewards!  More than one each year.  

There‘s been a lot of perfume, candles and skincare, but also on the redeemed list was a toaster, a blender, a dehydrator and toys for the kids (I always redeem points before Christmas to help ease the expense of ‘Santa’).  It’s fair to say I’m a loyal member lol.

As such, I’ve got a reward for you too!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
