Velocity announces a record breaking Points bonus

From today, Velocity Frequent Flyer is offering members their biggest transfer offer ever. Members can earn up to 40% bonus Velocity Points^ by transferring their reward points from participating credit card partners and receive 20% bonus points on transfers from ANZ, flybuys and hotel partners.

Velocity Frequent Flyer Chief Executive Officer Karl Schuster said, “Our members are used to our 15% bonus Points offer but this time around we wanted to offer them something a little extra”.

“This May, Velocity is breaking records with the biggest Points transfer bonus on offer, so the more points you transfer to Velocity, the bigger the bonus will be. Use your extra Points for more upgrades or Reward Seats fares which you can redeem across Virgin Australia and our partner airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways and Delta Air Lines.”

For those looking to redeem their bonus Points on flights, current Guinness World Record Holder for the youngest person to travel to every country in the world, James Asquith, said one of the biggest mistakes when travelling was not collecting points.

“I’m trying to make up for not transferring my points now. If I’d transferred more reward points from my credit cards or hotel partners while travelling to every country I would’ve been able to fly for free to most places”

“I’m now always looking for ways to boost my points, but also to redeem them, so keeping an eye on deals like bonus points transfer deals has become a new hobby for me!” said Mr Asquith.

Velocity members can transfer points from today until 31 May 2018 to earn up to 40% bonus Points. Velocity Points bonus is based on the number of Velocity Points members receive when they transfer from participating card partners.

1 – 100,000 Velocity Points = 15% bonus
100,001 – 250,000 Velocity Points = 20% bonus
250,001 – 500,000 Velocity Points = 25% bonus
500,001 – 750,000 Velocity Points = 30% bonus
750,001 and over = 40% bonus

To give you an idea of where that could get you, take a look at the below:
• 750,001 points + 40% bonus – Melbourne to Hong Kong, Return, Business Class (6 times)*
• 500,001 points + 30% bonus – Family of 4, Sydney to Bali Economy Class, Return (twice)*
• 200,000 points + 20% bonus – Brisbane to Perth, Return Economy for two AND Brisbane to Hobart, Return Economy for two AND Brisbane to Melbourne Return Economy for two*

*Stated points value is based on a return economy/business (as stated above) reward fare and is subject to availability. Reward Seat Terms and conditions apply.
