I wasn't sure where to post this - I chose 'Technical Issues' but feel free to move it if moderators feel necessary.
This morning I received an email (from eBay) about linking my eBay account to my FlyBuys account. There was a link in the email, but I decided to be cautious and go directly to my eBay and FlyBuys bookmarks. I logged into both sites/accounts, but neither of them mention any such scheme. Is this genuine or a phishing scam?
I hava attached a screenshot of the email.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I would treat it as genuine.....in the past I was able to use my flybuys card when buying on ebay but it was a long drawn out process with the points not being allocated for nearly a month and I only got something like 1 point for every $3 spent.
It had to be done through the flybuys site.
This does sound like an easier option but I am still not sure that I would bother.

I felt the same - but just logged into flybuys and looked at offers - it is there - so it is Genuine - specifies first 100,000 applicants will get it - perhaps thats why it isnt very visible on the fly buys website.

I also received the email this afternoon after I posted my first answer.
I logged into my flybuys account and it was definitely there so I linked my accounts.
It is marginally better than the original short term link I used some time ago but it is still only 1 point per $2 spent and takes 4 weeks for the points to appear.
