So. How does Fly Buys mark its 21st birthday? Unlike other 21 year olds, they decided that it’s not all about themselves, it’s about their members, it’s about loyalty, and it’s about the chance to give. We’re thrilled that they’ve chosen to partner with Points for Purpose, so their members can use their Fly Buys points to help someone in need.
Such a decision takes a lot of foresight and a whole lot of heart. By partnering with Points for Purpose, Fly Buys has shown just how committed it is to helping New Zealanders. We are excited to be working with a true kiwi institution, a business that boasts 2.5 million members, one with an appetite to do good.
So from today, Fly Buys members can choose one of the Points for Purpose charities and purchase a Fly Buys reward requested by that organisation.
Items are selected like a regular redemption at flybuys.co.nz and are then sent directly to the charitable organisation on behalf of the member.
The causes involved with Points for Purpose are the Neonatal Trust, Women’s Refuge, Barnardos, Auckland City Mission and Compassion Soup Kitchen.
Points for Purpose Founder Dave Drury says:
“We’re really excited about the potential Fly Buys members have to create real change. New Zealanders can choose exactly where their gift goes because they use their Fly Buys points to buy a specific item that charities then provide to the people they support.”
“We’re helping families, people without a place to call home, people living through violence and children living in poverty.
Dave Mansfield, Acting CEO of Loyalty NZ, the company that runs the Fly Buys programme, says “the Points for Purpose partnership is part of many new ways for Fly Buys members to use their points easily.”
“We are excited about this new opportunity for members to choose how and where they use points from their favourite loyalty programme, and we look forward to seeing the difference we are able to make together for the Points for Purpose causes.”
“It is great to be able to show that at Fly Buys, “we love to give”, and to help people throughout New Zealand in such a direct way.”
So, Fly Buys – let your hair down, have a party, and give yourselves a long, loud 3 cheers, because frankly – you deserve it.
