I am happy using Flybuys, but I do think if you aren't careful you could end up worse off. For example with their 'bonus points if you buy xx product', you are only in front if you were going to buy it anyway.
The main way we get points is via our NAB credit card which we pay off in full every month.
As far as them knowing our spending habits, I would imagine these things would be fairly easily tracked these days anyhow. It does annoy me, but not enough to stop me using their system.

I saw an episode of four corners about the way information is used. Back ally when you are a flybuys or rewards customer, you are signing away your information.
Couldn't care less about $300 when it comes to identity theft.

I stopped using all rewards bar my credit card (and only if necessary ) because of the data selling that goes on. I appreciate there may be savings by using them but I'm not prepared to have them track what I'm buying, what method I use to pay and any other info they collect.

You don't really need to supply your data. You can tick off anything/write anything on the forms when signing up to reward cards. Tick that you are a 50 year old single man with no kids when really you are a 30 year old married woman with kids. Your purchases would probably look odd to them but you would still be entitled to the rewards points.

Do ppl who are opposed to flybuys have Facebook? Your signing your rights away to any privacy whatsoever then too. Same thing but no monetary rewards for doing so.
