During May, Velocity Frequent Flyer is offering bonus points for transfers from participating card and hotel partners, and flybuys. Opportunities like this usually pop up twice a year and are a great way to make your points go further.

This time round, the exact bonus you’ll get varies based on which partner you’re transferring from and how many points you’re sending to Velocity.

First up, we have the following partners.

Transfers from the above partners earn a tiered bonus based on the transfer size, as follows:

  • 1-250,000 Velocity Points: 15% bonus
  • 250,001-500,000 Velocity Points: 20% bonus
  • 500,001+ Velocity Points: 25% bonus

With other partners, there is a flat rate bonus as follows:

  • ANZ Rewards: 20% + a 30% additional sweetener  = 50%
  • Commonwealth Bank CommBank Awards: 25%
  • Marriott Bonvoy: 20%
  • Accor Hotels LeClub Accor: 20%
  • Shangri-la: 20%
  • Hilton Honors: 20%
  • IHG Rewards Club: 20%
  • Flybuys: 15%

As usual, this promotion doesn’t apply to credit cards that automatically earn Velocity Points, rather it must be a rewards program where you manually transfer points to Velocity (for example, American Express Membership Rewards).

This promotion runs from 1 May to 31 May 2019. You can check out all the T&Cs on Velocity’s website here.

If you want to get a new card so you can take advantage of offers like this in the future, don’t miss the huge offer of 100,000 bonus Membership Rewards points with the American Express Explorer Credit Card.
