Virgin Australia is offering Velocity Frequent Flyers a chance at earning double Velocity Points or double Velocity Status Credits. But there is a big downside – as this is a targeted offer, only a handful of Velocity members can take advantage of the promotion. At least that was the case at its launch this morning.

But it seems Velocity is playing musical chairs with their offers, and everyone’s hoping to land a seat at the bonus table! From all accounts, Velocity has since expanded the eligibility criteria, meaning more frequent flyers can enjoy their flight, their way. It’s likely this change was made in response to negative feedback, whereby some of the most loyal Velocity members weren’t able to take advantage of the promotion.

We’ve had a few readers reach out claiming that they are now able to ‘pick their bonus’ after being blocked earlier in the day. There are now three offers circulating, with most (but not all) members eligible for at least one of three.

  • Offer 1: Double Status Credits
