Velocity Frequent Flyer’s Velocity eStore is one of the handiest sites out there for increasing your Velocity Points balance.
They have a wide range of partner online retailers, and if you have plans to shop online for gifts for family and friends, then figuring out what you can earn in return either by using the Velocity eStore or as cashback through CashRewards is worth a couple of minutes of your time.
Online Malls, like the Velocity eStore, work by ensuring you log in with your Frequent Flyer program credentials before then being referred out (with a click) once logged in to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.
The Velocity eStore is here, and you’ll typically earn at least 2 Velocity Points per $ spent with any of the partners within the eStore—on top of the usual points you’d earn from your credit card.
Some of the key partners include:
- David Jones
- The Iconic
The Velocity ‘eStore’ Online Mall has a wider range of retailers than Qantas’ offering. They have brought on partners in a range of categories, containing a wide number of local and international merchants, and this has been my ‘go-to’ Online Mall for the last few years to earn points—from eBay, primarily.
You can also pick up dedicated coupons and vouchers to use from the Velocity eStore at this page.
The Velocity eStore just ‘works’ too—it is very functional and stable and gets you out to your destination online store fast, even though it is not mobile-optimised.
While its earn rates are a little lower than Qantas’ on, say, iTunes, for example, the pure variety of retail partners still, in my view, makes it one of the best destination for Australians to start earning points online.
