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.

Elon Musk secretly welcomed twins just weeks before his second child with Grimes was born last year

The world’s wealthiest man, Elon Musk is believe to have fathered 10 children after a top executive from one of his companies gave birth to twins last year.

The mother of the children is Shivon Zilis, a senior member of Musks’ artificial intelligence company, Neuralink.

Zilis is considered a rising star in the world of AI, after being listed on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2015, and LinkedIn’s 35 under 35.

According to her LinkedIn, she is currently the Director of Operations and Special Projects at Musk’s neurotechnology firm, Neuralink.

Court documents show the pair filed a petition to change their twins’ last names to Musk, and contain their mothers last name as part of their middle name.

The petition was filed in Austin, Texas which is also the birthplace of Zilis and Musk’s children where they were reportedly born in November 2021.

The two children will add to the six children Musk has with ex-wife, Justine Musk, and two children with Canadian singer Grimes.

The twins will also join Justine and Musk’s 18-year-old daughter, Vivian Jenna Wilson who has recently strived to cut ties with her father.

Amazon is being placed under the spotlight in Britain, with the nation’s antitrust watchdog investigating whether the company has engaged in unfair conduct

Britain’s CMA is wanting to establish whether Amazon’s own sellers have an advantage in its marketplace over third parties.

The CMA says it is looking into Amazon’s third-party data to see if it’s being used to boost its own retail business, and favour sellers who use the company’s logistics and delivery services.

The investigation follows a similar matter which is ongoing in Europe.

Amazon says it will continue to work closely with the CMA during the investigation.
