Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program has teamed up with 7-Eleven to let customers earn Velocity Points whenever they shop for food, coffee, convenience items and fuel at 7-Eleven.

Point of sale Velocity card readers, enabling members to simply swipe or scan their physical Velocity membership card or My Velocity Digital Card when shopping at 7-Eleven, will gradually be implemented at all 7-Eleven fuel and convenience stores, starting with stores in Western Australia, from today.
After a tough 12 months that saw Virgin Australia go into administration before being taken over by Bain Capital, Virgin Australia Group CEO and Managing Director Jayne Hrdlicka said Velocity was committed to providing members more value and more opportunities to earn Velocity Points on everyday spend.
“Today is an incredibly exciting day for our 10 million Velocity members as we welcome 7-Eleven to the Virgin Australia Group family,” said Ms. Hrdlicka.
“7-Eleven is Australia’s largest independent fuel and convenience retailer with over 700 outlets across Australia, so whether our members are shopping at a city convenience store or filling-up their cars with fuel, 7-Eleven’s strong presence and great in-store experience will give Velocity members more opportunities to boost their Points balances, to fly.
“We’re focussed on providing Velocity members value by delivering some fantastic rewards as well as continually looking at how we can bring new engaging benefits to our members. Our partnership with 7-Eleven is a great example of that,” she said.
This partnership replaces the Velocity-BP tie up that ended in 2019. BP now partners with Qantas.
