Aussie Supermarket, Coles is shaking up the online grocery shopping game

Coles Online customers can now get up to $50 off their shop by using Flybuys points to help pay for their groceries using flypay.

In a statement, Coles says: Flypay is a fast, easy and secure digital wallet that allows customers to check out faster when shopping online and collect Flybuys points at participating eligible partners on qualifying transactions along the way.

Previously only available online to Coles liquor customers and selected retailers, the flypay payment option is now available on Coles Online, with added features that allow Coles Online customers to redeem Flybuys points in real-time.

Coles Online customers can simply select flypay when checking out and follow the instructions to part-pay using their Flybuys points, from $10 (redemption of 2,000 points) up to $50 (redemption of 10,000 points) per transaction.

The new redemption offer via flypay makes it far easier for customers to use their Flybuys points by enabling Coles Online customers to redeem Flybuys points as part of their online shop for the first time.


Coles Chief Executive of eCommerce Ben Hassing said Coles was committed to giving customers a seamless omnichannel experience as more Australians embrace digital shopping.

“We want to help our customers shop more easily anytime, anywhere, anyhow, and with a growing number of our customers choosing to shop with Coles Online for the convenience and great value, we want to make the checkout process simpler,”

Chief Executive of Emerging Businesses George Saoud added the rollout of flypay to Coles Online was part of Coles’ strategy.

“As Australians increasingly shop more online, we need to help make their shopping journey more convenient and digitally connected across all our Coles businesses and with flypay this includes access to other great retailers,”

flypay was developed by Coles in collaboration with Flybuys and Token ID – a Visa solution. flypay speeds up the online checkout process for customers, who no longer need to enter their payment, Flybuys and delivery information separately when shopping with flypay-enabled retailers.

Once customers set up their secure flypay account, all they need to do is select flypay when completing their transaction.

Jaguar Land Rover is developing a hydrogen-powered car

Published

Jaguar Land Rover will develop a new hydrogen-powered prototype of its iconic Defender SUV

The prototype program, known as Project Zeus, is part of JLR’s larger aim to only produce zero-tailpipe emissions vehicles by 2036.

Hydrogen only emits water making it ideal for larger vehicles with longer driving ranges, according to the car-maker.

It follows the company working towards cutting its tail-pipe emissions to zero by 2036.

The venture will be partly funded by the UK Government and will begin testing by the end of this year.

The UK plans to ban car sales that run entirely on combustion engines from 2030.

JLR has also made a commitment to have zero carbon emissions across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039.

The automaker has also tapped AVL, Delta Motorsport, Marelli Automotive Systems, and the UK Battery Industrialization Center to help develop the prototype.

The testing program is designed to help engineers understand how a hydrogen powertrain can be developed that would meet the performance and capability (like towing and off-roading) standards that Land Rover customers expect.

Emirates has recorded its biggest yearly loss in three decades.

In a tweet the Emirates group announced it lost $6 billion USD for the 2020/2021 past year.

The airline blamed the worldwide travel restrictions as the main driver of the slump.

The group’s revenue was $9.7billion USD, a decline of 66 percent over last years results.

Emirates revealed their current cash balance is now at $5.4 billion USD which is down 23 percent from last year mainly due to the weak demand in air travel caused by multiple pandemic-related lockdowns.

Emirates also confirmed in a statement that they did receive a capital injection of $3.1 billion USD from the Dubai Government who is the ultimate shareholder of the Middle Eastern Carrier.

Way of the future: The Flying Taxi

Published

on

Instead of booking an Uber to an airport how about a flying taxi to get to your flight on time?

Virgin Atlantic is the latest company to explore whether it could launch a flying taxi service.

The airline suggests electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles could fly between towns and major airports.

Several companies have promoted the idea of “flying taxis” that could pick passengers up from rooftops in city centres and take them to a variety of locations but Virgin Atlantic’s suggestion is slightly sleeker.

The proposed craft will carry four passengers and a pilot up to 100 miles as well as being emission-free and quieter than a traditional helicopter.

What is the idea?

Several companies have promoted the idea of autonomous “flying taxis” that could pick passengers up from rooftops in the city and then take them to the main transport hub such as an airport.

Virgin Atlantic’s suggestion is slightly tamer.

It has proposed that an eVTOL aircraft could pick people up from a city such as Cambridge and fly them to a major airport such as Heathrow Airport in London.

Vertical Aerospace says its VA-X4 craft will be able to carry four passengers and a pilot up to 100 miles, as well as being emissions-free and quieter than a helicopter.

The company claims it will be “near silent” when cruising.

It has already partnered with American Airlines to bring out these new taxi’s as well as Avolon, an aircraft-leasing company.
