Grass is Greener for Fly Buys Business Partners

Grass is Greener for Fly Buys Business Partners

Fly Buys for Business Partners have an edge over their rural competitors during these tough economic times because of the wide appeal of collecting Fly Buys Points on purchases, Fly Buys CEO Andy Symons said today.

“We’ve got a strong presence in the rural space, including partnerships with CASE IH, Summit Quinphos, Northfuels and Southfuels, Blackwoods Pakyels, and NZ Safety so we’re thrilled to be supporting them all at National Fieldays this year.

“I’d encourage Kiwis who haven’t joined up yet, or linked up their family farm account as a Fly Buys for Business account, to do so, because it’s a great way to get a little bit back from your fertiliser, tractor servicing, or farm spend, on top of what your household might collect day-to-day on groceries, or bills.

“Collecting points more quickly means getting rewards sooner, benefiting you and your family or your staff for loyalty.”

Summit Quinphos General Manager Willie Thomson says they have just celebrated their first year anniversary of offering Fly Buys, as well as their 20th anniversary of operation.

“We weren’t sure what the response would be, but we now have about 90 percent of our loyal customer base signed up. It is clearly something farming families want to be part of and we will look at further ways of enhancing our Fly Buys offering,” says Mr Thomson.

“We like to be a little bit different. It doesn’t take long for a typical farmer to earn a significant number of points, so Fly Buys are yet another advantage of being a Summit Quinphos customer.”

Frans Onland, Operations Manager from Case IH adds, “In the highly competitive tractor and combine harvester market Fly Buys is often the difference between getting the sale or losing it to a competitor. We know it influences our customers and with 2.3 million New Zealanders as active card holders it’s the best loyalty programme to be a part of.

Three giant rewards are zooming around Fieldays visiting Partner’s sites and encouraging visitors to enter a competition to win 10,000 Fly Buys Bonus Points.

There are more than 1000 Fly Buys rewards to choose from, and 800,000 are redeemed by New Zealanders each year.
