Keep on top of what you've got
The first step to taking your Points balance to hello-holiday-heights is taking stock of what you've already got in your Velocity account by logging into your Velocity account on our website, or via the Velocity app. From there, you can take a look at your Activity Statement to see how many Points you have now, what Points you may have coming in regularly (from your Velocity Points earning credit card, for example), what purchases you may have earned Points on in the past, and start thinking about where you could earn Points in the future.
By regularly assessing your Points balance, you can better understand your membership and earn behaviour in order to make sure you don't miss out on Points on purchases you would have made anyway. And with our help, you'll become a bona fide Points Junkie in no time.
