Been stockpiling reward points in anticipation of Velocity’s next points transfer promo? The moment you’ve been waiting for has arrived – and the clock is now ticking for you to complete the transfer and rake in those points.
From now through to 11:59pm on May 31, Virgin Australia is casting its transfer promo net far and wide, inviting members of more than 20 loyalty and rewards programs to boost their Velocity Frequent Flyer balance and enjoy a bonus of up to 20%. Details can be found on the promotional page.
In just a few clicks, you could be winging your way onto that next points-based award flight on either Virgin Australia or its partners such as Air Canada, Etihad Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways and United Airlines.
On the list is American Express Membership Rewards, which enjoys the highest points bonus of the bunch, in addition to ANZ Rewards, Citi Rewards and HSBC Rewards. There’s also Marriott Bonvoy and Accor ALL in the mix for those who’ve saved up from hotel stays.
