Want to elevate your Velocity Points balance? Whether you’re travelling for business around Australia or venturing out on holiday to the States, there’s an offer for you. Here are the latest bonus points deals with Virgin Australia.

Note: this article appeared in our email newsletter on 8 June 2022. It incorrectly stated the description as “Take out a Velocity Points-earning credit card, and you could be rewarded with extra perks such as 40,000 bonus points or six months of trial Gold status!” That offer ended on 31 May and should have been removed from the email. Please disregard the description. The correct offers are mentioned below.

Offer 3: 50% more Velocity Points

Activate by: Activate now and book by 14 June for travel by 4 September 2022

If you’ve got plans to fly on Virgin Australia soon, then you can walk away with 50% bonus base Velocity Points. This flash offer ends soon – activate and book an eligible flight by 14 June 2022 to earn the bonus points on your next flight before 4 September 2022.

The 50% bonus applies to the base points rate only, not the bonus points you get with having Velocity Silver, Gold or Platinum status. So a Platinum frequent flyer who earns 1,250 base Velocity Points will also get another 1,250 points through the Platinum 100% bonus, and an extra 625 points through this 50% bonus offer.

Yay for more bonus points.
