Your credit card could get you to Canada.
If you’re going to spend money anyway, you may as well earn Velocity Points.
Delightful as it would be for us to have you on board our planes all the time, we know that most people spend more time in the car than the cabin. That’s why we don’t expect you to be airborne when it comes to earning Velocity Points.
That’s right – you can earn Velocity Points without going anywhere near the tarmac. All you need to do is buy stuff. Yes indeed, it’s that simple. There are ways to turn everyday purchases and payments like bills, groceries, fuel or even your Friday night drinks into Velocity Points using credit cards. So, if taking to the Canadian slopes is on the agenda, you’ll be on the way faster than you can say ‘100 per cent pure maple syrup’. Here’s how.
Velocity Co-branded credit cards
When you spend with our Co-branded credit cards you can earn Velocity Points for the things you pay for. You don’t have to do a thing – the Points will appear in your account each month. Just sit back and let your spending earn you rewards. That’s not a bad result, considering you’re probably just picking up the things you need anyway.
There are some perks, too. Some of our Co-branded credit cards come with a Virgin Australia gift voucher, a complimentary return domestic flight or lounge passes. You can also double dip on Points when you spend with Velocity’s partners. For example, if your tank’s low, fill up with our partner BP at participating service stations nationally*, and earn Velocity Points on both your Co-branded credit card transaction and when you swipe your Velocity card in-store. The best way to keep up with our latest credit card offers is to check out the Member Offers page on the Velocity website.
Same goes with a range of online purchases you can make via the Velocity eStore with the likes of our pals at David Jones, Mecca Cosmetica and more. You can double dip at thousands of hotels and with plenty of travel partners too.
Transfer reward points from an eligible credit card
To transfer existing credit card reward points to your Velocity account, just check and see if your card is eligible. If it is, you can – and should – transfer your points to Velocity today so you can redeem them for that dream holiday.
We’re partnered with many major credit and charge card providers, and it’s flexible, so you can decide when to transfer to Velocity. You can also set up auto redemption with some partners so you have less life admin to deal with and more time to think about your next Velocity Points-funded travel itinerary.
