Velocity "Gold Explorer" for free via FlyBuys


The flybuys and Velocity partnership is offering a taste of Velocity Gold level for three months, under the name “Explore Gold”. This includes:

  • Access to over 150 lounges
  • 75% Velocity Points bonus when flying Virgin Australia
  • Priority Check-in
  • Priority boarding
  • “And more”.

All you seem to have to do is link your flybuys and Velocity memberships, then fill out the form at the following address:

If you get 80 Status Credits and fly at least one Eligible Sector (in the three months while you are an “Explore Gold” member), you will unlock full Gold membership for a further 12 months.

Must be completed before 11:59PM on Sunday 21 May 2017.

EDIT: This is a targeted offer, sorry for not realising! Interesting to know that it’s something they are either trialing or rolling out, and keep an eye on your inbox for emails from flybuys!

I previously hadn’t linked my accounts so potentially this is targeted at those customers.

  • I think the offer must be targetted, I just get redirected to the home page when trying after confirming my password.

  • Ah, I didn’t realise! The email seemed fairly generic, and although it did say “your invitation” they use that language all the time. I’ll update the post.

  • We had the offer twice – the second time after qualifying for the extra year of gold!

  • How long does this take to come through? said up to 4 weeks on the email however am curious what others have found as I will be flying on monday 12th and would be great to use the lounge!

  • I received this offer and was accepted (quite some time later). It took a long time to recieve my gold card in the mail, however this was only required for partner airline lounges. To use the Virgin Lounge I only needed to show my red card and the system knew that it was “explore gold”.
