1. Double dip with our partners
What could be a better hack than making your purchase work twice as hard?
Let us paint you a picture. You book part of your trip – like flights, accommodation, car hire or insurance – through one of our partners and you use your Velocity Points earning credit card to pay for it. Now, these are things you probably already do, just not necessarily together on the same transaction, right?
But this way, when you log into your Velocity account – winner! – you’ve been rewarded twice over. It’s like all (okay, two) of your Christmases have come at once.
There are loads of ways you can double dip on the day-to-day stuff you charge to your Velocity Points earning credit card: doing your weekly Coles grocery shop, for example – just make sure you scan your flybuys card when you go through the checkout, pay with your Velocity Points earning card and then transfer your flybuys points to Velocity.
The Velocity Points you can earn vary from partner to partner, but rest assured you’ll earn Points twice on the same transaction.
2. Transfer your existing loyalty program Points
Look, we know it might be slightly hypocritical given they’re called ‘loyalty’ programs, but there’s nothing to stop you shifting reward scheme points from flybuys, our partner hotel loyalty programs and potentially even your everyday credit card over to Velocity.
You can move points over from any of our partner programs whenever you like, or some allow you to set up what we call “Auto Redemption” to transfer points to your Velocity account on a regular basis (so you can just set and forget). We also occasionally run limited-time transfer bonus offers, where we’ll give you an extra percentage of Velocity Points on top of those you’re transferring over. So, time it right, and you could turbo-boost your Velocity Points balance.
3. Appy life, happy life
You probably already have the Velocity app downloaded (and if you don't, we'll give you a second to download and install before we continue...), but you may not know all the ways you can put it to work.
Not only can you use the app to access your My Velocity digital card, browse your latest offers, activate exclusive offers, and view your latest account activity, but you can also browse and "favourite" your most-loved brands so that you'll never miss a special offer from them ever again. Simply navigate to "Offers" and "Brands", then find your fave and tap the love heart to add to your favourites.
Love that for you!
And that's it - with these three little hacks in hand, you've essentially tripled your Points earning potential. Look at you go!
