‘Well I was just told that you receive an extra 50 fly buys points for doing so! The checkout person said to make sure you always ask the cashier to put it on and it’s under heavy items. I know it’s not huge but every point counts and it’s something I’m doing anyway!’
Nadine went on to explain that the code Coles cashiers use is ‘YouPack’ - and while it shows up as 1-cent on your receipt, she explains that ‘1c is a code generator to get the 50 points as you can see it is then credited.’
The hack went down a treat with other savvy members on the Facebook group.
‘I am pedantic about how my bags are packed and always do them myself anyway so this is hugely useful info!! Thanks!’ said one. Added another: ‘Really? I never knew that! Thanks for sharing!’
Added a third: ‘Wow I’ve been missing out on a lot of points!’
Some shoppers were quick to point out that the hack is only available at some Coles stores - but another Coles fan pointed out that if you share the code with the cashier, they may oblige.
‘So giving this a go!’ said another shopper.
