Transferring Flybuys points to Velocity is quite a popular option for Velocity members. Until the end of August, Flybuys and Velocity have a targeted promotion, offering an additional 100 Velocity Points when transferring 2,000 Flybuys Points.
Under the standard transfer offer, 2000 Flybuys Points will land as 870 Velocity Points. This offer bumps that up to 970 Velocity Points. This represents an increase of 11.4% over the normal transfer rate,
