Ideas for a quick way to earn 80 Velocity Status Credits out of Brisbane?

Hi
I need to quickly earn 80 status points on my Velocity card to move up to Silver (I’m new to this game!). My anniversary is 16 Sept and I have a international flight booked early Oct so just miss the cut off.  I’ve just read about Family pooling and activated (wish I knew that a few months ago). I live in regional queensland which makes life a little more difficult, but can travel out of Bris..
Any guidance would be much appreciated … or do you think I should just let it go?
Many thanks in advance..
 

  • Hey Willougs – what’s your closest airport? I’ll have a dig around.

Hi Willougs,

Completely agree with the others that there’s generally not much extra value in Silver but you have to start somewhere 🙂   Maybe it’s the extra 10kg on Etihad or the bonus points?

Either way if you decided to go for a “status run” (or three) have a look at the “Trade & Exchange Forum” on this very site you may be able to pick up one or two of the Amex Complimentary Flights at a reasonable price.

Update:  Sorry Willougs,
I’ve just remembered there are some caveats around the points/credits earning conditions of those flights. You must check if you do intend to try it.

Good luck!

Andy

Have you had a good look at the actual benefits of Silver?  I’d be surprised if it was really worth it.  There may well be lots of ways to get them cheaper, but I would bet on paying roughly $80-100 per 10 status credits through flying.  The benefits of silver are pretty slim, I wouldn’t pay more than $100.

  • Agreed – noticed Willougs was chasing Silver, not Gold, now. Not really worth a large additional investment.
