As at 1 July, Christmas is just 177 days away. That means you still have 25 weeks and 1 day to stack up some more Members Advantage points before they expire at the close of trade on Christmas Eve.

Previously members could convert 5,500 points for $50 cash in the month of December; this has now ceased. This year, Members Advantage introduces a new program whereby members can convert 5,000 points for a $50 Gift Card in a range of choices, including Coles, Woolworths and Caltex.

Perfect timing to stock up on Christmas goodies, use as a Christmas gift, or fuel up the car for the Christmas holidays. Better still, treat yourself to something special, just in time for Christmas.

If you don’t have enough points to convert to a Gift Card, remember you can use your points to purchase food, beverages and entertainment at the Club. If you are a few points short for your purchase, top up with a little cash. You can do this all year round.

However you decide to spend your points, don’t forget the expiry date – 24 December 2018 – and start planning to use or cash in your points on time this year.
