new year, new you.
For real this time.
No matter one’s capacity or willpower to actually stick to new year’s resolutions, with the dawn of a new year always comes the ritual of setting them. (Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?) But when there’s a clear incentive involved - one you can actually see (almost) immediately - well, now you’re talkin’.
Here at Velocity, said incentive comes in the way of Points, which can literally take you places (very good places!). That’s as good of a reason to stick to resolutions, if you ask us. So, how are you setting yourself up for a great 2019?
I want to: exercise more
Working out doesn’t come naturally to everyone, but a reward at the end – albeit small – can be the missing motivating ingredient. If you aren’t already part of a gym, new members who sign up to a Virgin Active Australian club and visit three or more times every week for the first 12 weeks will receive up to 10,000 bonus Points. On the other hand, if you’re already a member, visit 12 or more times per calendar month to earn up to 500 Velocity Points1. And if you’re in need of new fitness threads, head on over to peruse Onsport or the Velocity eStore.
Now, drop and give us 10 - we can see those abs already.
I want to: eat healthier
Succumb no longer to the tasty-yet-high-calorie-inducing meal for lunch or dinner because you’re strapped for time. The secret? Meal-prep, which has become a bit of its own discipline these days. Account for all your weekly meals and plan your regular grocery shop at Coles. You’ll be able to collect up to 10 Status Credits per month when you use scan your flybuys card at Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor2. Oh yeah, and collect a load of flybuys points which you can transfer to Velocity.
I want to: stay on top of life admin
Ah, the mundane but the inevitable, and all part of being a Functioning Adult. However time-consuming these chores may be, tackling them when there’s a pot of gold (read: Points) at the end of it can ease the load. Whether it’s car servicing with Midas or getting insured with Bupa health insurance, when you can earn with partners like these, we dare say such tasks may even be enjoyable.
I want to: tick off the bucket list
Bungee jumping in New Zealand or seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland? If you’ve got more sights saved than seen, it’s time to start booking some trips. Use the Velocity app to pin some trips, see the world and earn Points and Status Credits with Velocity’s range of partner airlines like Virgin Australia, Delta Airlines and more. After all, you only live once, and let’s face it, that Instagram grid ain’t gonna fill itself. Just don’t forget to enter your Velocity membership number on those bookings!
