VIRGIN Australia’s Velocity loyalty scheme is making a concerted push this month for members to boost their points balance, with a bonus of up to 40% of the points transferred.
The promotional blurb notes “it could be the difference between Melbourne and Montreal” in terms of flight redemption.
A sliding scale applies, with a 15% bonus on transfers up to 100,000 Velocity points, 20% for 100,001 to 250,000 points, 25% for 250,001 to 500,000 points, 30% for 500,001 to 750,000 points and 40% for transfers equivalent to 750,001 Velocity points or more.
VA says it’s the best offer ever in terms of points incentives, with a range of partners participating in the up to 40% program including American Express, NAB, Citibank and Diners Club.
There’s a separate bonus of up to 20% available from other partners such as flybuys, ANZ, and a number of loyalty programs from hoteliers such as IHG, Hilton, AccorHotels, SPG Starwood, Choice Hotels & more.
Points must be transferred by 31 May to participate, and Virgin has confirmed that the transfer offer is open to all existing and new Velocity members without any registration requirement.
