Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer program is back with one of its regular points transfer promotions, this time offering up to 40% bonus points on transfers from a range of partners – as well as potentially a free serve of status credits.

This promotion applies to transfers from today until 30 November 2020.

For transfers from American Express Membership Rewards, NAB Rewards, Citi Rewards, Diners Club Rewards, Card Services Rewards, Suncorp Bank Rewards and BOQ Q Rewards, the bonus will be as follows:

  • 1 to 100,000 Velocity Points = 15% bonus Velocity Points
  • 100,001 to 250,000 Velocity Points = 20% bonus Velocity Points
  • 250,001 to 500,000 Velocity Points = 25% bonus Velocity Points
  • 500,001 to 750,000 Velocity Points = 30% bonus Velocity Points
  • 750,001+ Velocity Points = 40% bonus Velocity Points

Transfers from Commonwealth Bank Rewards, Westpac Altitude Rewards, Marriott Bonvoy, Accor Live Limitless, IHG Rewards Club, Hilton Honors, Shangri-La Golden Circle and Choice Privileges will earn 20% bonus points, while transfers from flybuys will earn 15%.

In addition, Velocity members will receive 50 bonus Status Credits when they transfer the equivalent of 50,000 Velocity Points in a single transaction from one of the above partners. You can only redeem this offer once per partner – but you can earn multiple 50 status credit bonuses if you transfer from multiple partners. 

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.
