Qantas and Virgin Australia have both launched bonus points offers for manual transfers into their respective frequent flyer schemes this month.
Velocity Frequent Flyer is offering 15% bonus Velocity Points when you transfer from one of its participating card partners, flybuys or hotels.
A whole bunch of partners are participating – you can view the full list here.
Qantas meanwhile is offering up to a whopping 45% bonus Qantas Points on transfers from cards – but before you get too excited, note that this is scaled according to the transfer size and only a handful of cards in Australia allow you to manually transfer points to Qantas (eg the Amex Platinum Card).
Here’s how it works:
|Bonus Points||Points transfer|
|45% more Qantas Points||2,000,000 Qantas Points and over|
|25% more Qantas Points||500,001 – 1,999,999 Qantas Points|
|15% more Qantas Points||Up to 500,000 Qantas Points|
More information about the Qantas offer is available here.
As usual, these offers don’t apply to cards that automatically earn Qantas or Velocity Points, rather it must be a rewards program where you manually transfer points.
Both promotions end on 30 November 2018.
