We need a new slow cooker as previous one now EOL.
I thought that might be a good use of the Fly Buys points that I have accumulated. So, browsed their site looking at various models. Literally all of them that were more expensive than the amount of points I have required more in cash to 'top up' the purchase than the same item could be purchased for from a shop!
One glaring example was a fancy Kitchen Aid device that was much more than just a slow cooker: with 750 Fly Buys points, it required another $750 to buy it.
Order it from Kitchen Aid NZ and you can buy it for $650...!
This seems somehow wrong - it is tantamount to the Fly Buys points actually being worth zero.
