The 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. It’s useful if you have plans to shop online for gifts for family and friends. You can figure out what you can earn in return either by using the Velocity eStore or earning cashback through Cashrewards.

Current double points offer

I received the following email from Velocity this morning:

Get paid double Points from hundreds of retailers

Earn [up to] 4 Points per $1 on your everyday spend through the Velocity e-Store. Shop at over 200 stores like Catch, David Jones and THE ICONIC for all of your favourite brands and amazing deals (excluding eBay and Booktopia).

Velocity eStore double points promotion

Velocity usually offers 2 points per $ spent on purchases through its online store, but you’ll be earning 4 points during this promotion. Given our valuation of Velocity Points at 1.8c each, that’s like earning ~7% cashback on your purchases.

  1. Make sure cookies can be tracked on your browser
  2. Log in to the Velocity eStore
  3. Click Shop now on your selected retailer
  4. The retailer’s website will open and Velocity will track your purchase to award you the bonus points

What are online malls?

Online malls, like the Velocity eStore, work by firstly ensuring you log in with your Frequent Flyer program credentials. Then you’ll be referred out to make a transaction over on the retailer’s website.

You’ll typically earn at least 2 Velocity Points per $ spent with any of the partners within the eStore. That’s on top of the usual points you’d earn from your credit card.

Some of the key partners include:

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. This has been many readers’ ‘go-to’ online mall for the last few years to earn points.

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.

It also has competitive earn rates as well, which can be a higher than Qantas’ on, say, iTunes, for example. This, along with the pure variety of retail partners, in my view, makes it one of the best destination for travellers in Australia to earn points online.

Summing up

Velocity’s eStore online shopping portal is handy for picking up bonus Velocity Points on purchases that you were going to make anyway.

It’s important to check if another frequent flyer program’s portal can earn you more points on your specific purchases, though. The tool below can help you do that easily.
