Tick everything off – including your next getaway.

Here's how.

If you’re anything like us, you have a love/hate relationship with life admin. While we’ll put it off for as long as we possibly can, we also know there’s nothing better than that smug feeling of accomplishment once we’ve ticked everything off our to-do list.

Well, get ready to feel your smugness levels soar. Because there are plenty of ways for savvy travellers like you to turn those everyday mundane tasks into something that actually is exciting. Say, your next holiday.

Here's how.

Get shopping at Coles

You’ve done the meal planning. Now you just need to tackle the Coles shop. But, hey, what’s that nestled next to your veggies? Oh yeah, a basket-load of flybuys points that you can conveniently turn into Velocity Points. Just link both accounts and convert your flybuys points to Velocity Points whenever you like (we’ll give you 870 Velocity Points for every 2,000 flybuys).1 Plus, you could be closer than you think to earning Velocity membership status because you’ll earn 1 Status Credit for every $100 you spend at Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland or First Choice Liquor, up to 10 per month!2.

Make sure your pet is looked after

Parent to a fur baby? Get them covered with petinsurance.com.au, and you’ll earn 3 Points for every dollar you spend on premiums5. Points, plus peace of mind. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Send that parcel (without a trip to the post office!)

For most of us, squeezing in a trip to the post office can be challenging in the working week, and chances are it’s closed by the time your Saturday sleep-in is over with. That’s why we’re obsessed with Sendle – a courier service that picks up from your home, and costs less than a trip to the post office.

Schedule a time for collection and Sendle will pick your parcel up from your door, and deliver directly to its destination – whether that’s down the road or on the other side of the world. Better yet, you’ll earn 5 Velocity Points for every domestic parcel sent and 10 Velocity Points for every international parcel sent when you're an ‘Easy’ or ‘Premium’ Sendle account holder7, and you can feel real good about the fact your delivery was 100% carbon neutral, too.
