Today Amex and Velocity Frequent Flyer launched an interesting promotion for those that have American Express cards enrolled into the Membership Rewards program (the flexible; and arguably most valuable points program by Amex).
How the Amex bonus transfer works
To transfer Membership Rewards points for Velocity Points you must be enrolled in Membership Rewards Ascent, Gateway, Premium Ascent, Business Ascent or David Jones Membership Rewards program and be a member of Velocity Frequent Flyer.
To receive 15-25% Bonus Velocity Points plus Gold or Platinum Status, you must transfer Membership Rewards points to Velocity between 15/02/2019 and 15/03/2019. A minimum amount of 2,000 points transferred is required.
To receive an upgrade to Platinum Velocity membership for 12 months, you must transfer a total of 500,001 Membership Rewards points in one transaction during the Promotion Period. To receive an upgrade to Gold Velocity membership for 12 months, you must transfer between 250,001 and 500,000 Membership Rewards points in one transaction during the Promotion Period.
The 12 month period will commence from the end of the Promotion Period. In order to maintain your Status at the end of the 12 month period (on your Review Date), you will need to have earned the required Status Credits and flown Eligible Sectors. Your new membership pack will be mailed to you within 4 weeks of the end of the Promotion Period; please ensure your address details in your Velocity account match the details of your Membership Rewards account.
You can access this promotion by visiting https://catalogue.membershiprewards.com.au/partner/Velocity/Velocity/ while logged in.
Note that this may only be targeted to Platinum Card holders; check your transfer page first to confirm you will receive the status benefits before transferring!
With the upcoming Amex Membership Rewards devaluation, will you be tempted by this offer?
