Why should I use a Velocity transfer promotion?

We’re a big fan of transfer promotions from flexible reward programs to Velocity Frequent Flyer, particularly when the offer is 20% more points (or higher!) and you have a specific flight goal in mind.

The bonus points usually credit instantly alongside the main stash of points you transfer over, so you don’t have to wait around for them to show up.

Planning on making a transfer to empty out one of your bank rewards programs or Flybuys account? Then you’ll probably want to wait as late as possible in the promo period to ensure you can transfer the most points possible.

Summing up

These Velocity promotions are usually a great deal if you have a stash of credit card or hotel program points you want to transfer over to Velocity. Virgin Australia is gradually boosting flights across Australia, with international routes also restarting this year. And you can use Velocity Points on airline partners such as Etihad, Singapore Airlines, Air Canada and more. So what are you waiting for?
