It’s back; transfer your flexible points for any of the participating programs to Velocity Frequent Flyer and receive a 15% boost on your points balance.

Your transfer must be initiated before November 30, 2018, to get the 15% bonus points credited.

Update: I looks like ANZ has joined the party and is now offering an extra 15% on top of the 15% Velocity is already giving. This means you could get a 30% bonus if you hold an ANZ rewards credit card!

Which Credit Cards / Hotel Programs / Retail Programs are participating?

Note that this deal doesn’t include credit cards which earn Velocity points as a standard. The promotion is there to persuade those with flexible points (the best kind of points) such as Amex Membership Rewards and ANZ Rewards to send their points to Velocity Frequent Flyer.

Here’s the list of participating partners:

  • Australian American Express Card Members, including David Jones American Express Card Members enrolled in the Membership Rewards program (this offer excludes American Express New Zealand Card Members)
  • ANZ Rewards and ANZ Business Rewards
  • Citibank Citi Rewards
  • Diners Club Reward
  • Bank of Queensland Q Rewards (Platinum credit card holders only)
  • Suncorp Bank Rewards
  • Card Services Rewards
  • HSBC Rewards (Platinum and Premier credit card holders only)
  • NAB Rewards
  • Flybuys
  • Shangri-La
  • Accor Hotels
  • Hilton
  • The Ritz -Carlton Rewards
  • Marriott Rewards
  • SPG Starwood Preferred Guest
  • IHG
  • Choice Hotels

Should You Transfer?

If you’ve got a Velocity Redemption in mind, now is an excellent time to send those points across. However, keep in mind that Velocity is de-valuating the transfer rates to Singapore Airlines as of next year. The other thing to remember is that in the past, Velocity has increased the transfer bonus towards the end of the promotion. So unless you’re in a rush, I wouldn’t show my cards just yet and see if there’s an extra bonus up for grabs.

Bonus Tip

Velocity Frequent Flyer has just launched a campaign to promote its Frequent Flyer program. The promotion is encouraging users to flex their savvy points tips/redemptions etc. All you have to do is highlight a benefit of Velocity Frequent Flyer on social media (Facebook or Instagram) and tag Velocity Frequent Flyer + use the hashtag #earnbassador

They will be selecting winners based on the quality of the entry and credit their accounts with points. If you want to know more about this competition, you can get the full details here.
