Just got another reply from FlyBuys support:

"Please be advised that we have just received notification from our suppliers that this reward will be active online this Friday (26th November)."

Looks like their games are couriered out though. I was hoping they'd be like other rewards, where you can make a trip down to Noel Leeming as soon as you've claimed them online. Here's hoping the courier lag isn't too great. :-)

xpd: Yup, Im using Twitter more and more now for following up purchases etc.

MightyApe are good at following up emails tho, I get responses from them within a couple of hours.


Mighty Ape are bloody legends when it comes to customer service. I've reached out to them a few times and they've always come through for me (the last time was to help me secure a highly sought after collectors edition that was sold out elsewhere, including being listed as so on their website). 


+1 to that.
Mighty Ape ALWAYS respond to any queries I have in a fast and friendly manner. Their customer service is absolutely excellent.

Sorry back on to GT5 topic.

I wonder how the online/multiplayer is going to be set up in GT5?
Will you be able to race specific people/PSN friends?
If it's possible, anyone keen on a geekzone group of some sort?

Now that I bought it without my wife knowing, have to think of whether to ask her for Black Ops or NFS for christmas

So excited that NFS has gone back to it's old roots, still have the original NFS disk here for both PC and PS1

We have our FlyBuys account attached to our mortgage, so we build up points pretty quickly. Got lots of free stuff from FlyBuys thanks to this :-)

I'm hoping Santa has a Move under the Christmas tree for me. We already have the Eye Camera, thanks to a copy of EyePet for the kids (which they rarely play anymore), so the barrier to entry should be lower. I've also tried telling the wife that it would turn the PS3 into a "Wii +". Hasn't stopped her wanting a Wii though (we argued about that when we bought the PS3. I won :-))

4 games for 1?!? Thats a bit steep. The last (and only) time I did a JB HiFi game trade (BFBC2) they only required 3.
