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.
