Spend & Fly FAQs
Spend&Fly is the Flybe Credit Card's exclusive loyalty programme. As you may have several questions about the Spend&Fly programme, we hope to answer all of these in the section below. However, if you have a query that is not addressed please contact our Spend&Fly team who will be happy to help.
What is Spend&Fly?
Spend&Fly, is our loyalty programme exclusive to Flybe Credit Card holders. With Spend&Fly you can earn flights with your spend on your Flybe Credit Card.
How does it work?
Simply use your Flybe Credit Card and, when you’re ready to redeem your flight voucher, visit flybe.com/spend-and-fly. Oh, and did we mention that there’s no limit to the number of flights you can earn in a year? The more you spend, the more you can redeem – it’s that simple.
Every penny you spend on your Flybe Credit Card counts towards a Flybe bonus flight (where you just pay taxes and charges). But the difference is, there are no more points awarded. It’s simply about the amount you spend, and when you decide to redeem your voucher.
Spend&Fly is closing on March 11th 2019 for collection as a result of the closure of the Flybe & Creation co-branded credit card.From 11th March 2019 you will no longer earn Spend & Flybe rewards when you use your credit card.
In March your points balance will be frozen allowing you 6 months to redeem vouchers without points expiring.
As of 8th December 2018 all new issued or requested vouchers will be valid until 20th September 2019.
After this date you will no longer be able to make a booking using a Spend&Fly voucher and your Spend&Fly account will be closed.
Do I have to do anything?
No you don’t have to do anything – you can continue to use your card as normal. Creation Financial Services will be in touch with you regarding your credit card.
Will I receive a new card?
Yes – although only when your current card expires will you receive a new card. This will be Creation branded rather than Flybe branded.
What do I do with my Flybe Card?
Creation will send you a new card just before your current card expires, you can continue to use the card as normal until then. However, from 11th March, 2019 it will no longer accrue Spend&Fly points.
What else is changing?
Everything else remains the same – your credit limit, payment dates, statement render dates and your Online Account Management will all be the same.
Can I still earn Spend & Fly rewards?
Yes you have until the 11th March 2019 to earn Spend & Fly rewards. After this date the Spend & Fly loyalty scheme will close for collection.
