Offer 1: earn 1,000 Velocity points on your next Virgin Australia booking

Update: this promotion may be targeted. No harm in giving it a try.

Register for this promotion and you will receive an additional 1,000 points on top of the regular points earn on your next Virgin Australia booking for travel until 19 March 2019.

You must activate the offer and make your booking by the end of 29 April and it is only valid for flights marketed and operated by Virgin Australia, i.e. partner and codeshare flights are not eligible.

Offer 2: earn 10,000 bonus Velocity points on flights to Hong Kong

This promotion is valid for travel on both Virgin Australia’s existing Melbourne – Hong Kong and new Sydney – Hong Kong services (launching 2 July).

An eligible flight is a Virgin Australia-operated and -marketed flight between Melbourne and Hong Kong for travel between 17 April 2018 and 14 March 2019 inclusive or Sydney and Hong Kong for travel between 2 July 2018 and 14 March 2019 inclusive.

You must activate the offer and book your flight between 17 April and 1 May 2018 inclusive.

You will earn 5,000 bonus points for a one-way flight or 10,000 points for a return flight (on top of your regular earn rate). This promotion applies to both Economy and Business Class tickets.

For example, on most sale Economy Class fares, you earn just over 4,500 Velocity points for a return flight from Australia to Hong Kong, meaning that with this promotion, you more than triple your earn rate, which will be almost enough to get you a one-way Business Class redemption between Sydney and Melbourne (15,500 points).
