Status points calculation Coles

How is the $100 Cole's purchase = 1 status point

1: is it the total months purchase
2: is it per purchase if it exceeds $100
3: are fractions if a $100 carried forward
A during the month
B to the next month
4: credit in the month of purchase at Coles
5: credited in the month following

1. Yes (Sum of all purchases each calendar month at participating stores)
2. No - see 1.
3A. Not really, see 1
3B. No
4. "Activity date" is the last day of the month, even though they do not post until up to a week into the next month.
5. Yes, but not relevant - see 4

It's $100 per point totalled across all of the associated merchants mentioned on the Velocity site - https://experience.velocityfrequentf...e-dine/flybuys. If you spend $1 every day in July at each of Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor you will have spent $31 at each of them for a total of $124. That will net you 10 status credits ($100 = 10SC) and you "lose" the $24 remainder. It is not carried forward to the next month

It's not quite that generous - SC earn is based on 1 SC for every complete $100 spent in a calendar month to a maximum of 10 SC's.

To get the 10 SC's monthly maximum you must spend at least $1000 in a calendar month across all the associated merchants.

If your total is $685 in a calendar month then 6 SC's are earned and the count starts from 0 on the 1st day of the next month.

If you spend $520 in the next month, another 5 SC's are earned.

I'm only just diving into the Coles-VA partnership, since they are now my closest supermarket. All questions answered, thanks serfty.

is the max of 10 per earner or receiver ie can you have the use of family grouping and get more than 10 SP in a month ?

Family pooling of SC's works ...

Surely that would mean you've got multiple independent FlyBuys accounts within the same family. Occasionally there's a "double SC" month although I can't remember one recently (not that I bother any more)
