The Flybuys double Status Credits offer is back for December 2019. Under this offer you will earn 2 Status Credits for each $100 of total spend during December at eligible retailers.
The normal limit only counting the first $1,000 of spend for the purposes of calculating your Status Credits earn will still apply. As a result, you can earn up to 20 Status Credits per flybuys account during the promotion – double the usual 10 Status Credits.
Earning Status Credits with Flybuys
To earn status credits with flybuys you need to link your flybuys account to your Velocity account. If you haven’t already done so, you can link your accounts from the Flybuys site.
Once you have linked your accounts, you will be eligible to earn Status Credits. Keep in mind that you will only earn Status Credits from the day of linking. As a result, if you link your accounts today, any spend prior to today will not count.
Under the partnership with flybuys, you can earn 1 Status Credit for each $100 of spend in eligible merchants each month. Your total spend takes into account your monthly shopping at Coles, Coles online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor.
Once linked, flybuys calculates your total spend across Coles, Coles online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor each month. This is the total spend – you do not need to spend $100 in single transactions.
Velocity will then award the appropriate number of Status Credits based on your total spend. Usually this occurs within a few days after the end of the month, but can sometimes take up to two weeks.
The full details of the offer are:
*Velocity Frequent Flyer members must link their Velocity membership to their flybuys household and must remain linked until 31 January 2020 to earn Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits. Only one Velocity membership can be linked to a flybuys household at any one time.
For the promotional period Sunday 1 December 2019 to Tuesday 31 December 2019 the earn rate for Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits will be 2 Status Credits for every $100 (including GST) spent in total across Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland, First Choice Liquor and First Choice Liquor Market. No fractions of Status Credits will be allocated, only whole Status Credits. During the promotional period, the nominated linked Velocity member may earn up to a maximum of 20 Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits.
Members who have selected family pooling will have their Status Credits pooled from Contributing Accounts to the Beneficiary account. Your flybuys card must be presented at the time of purchase.

Please allow up to 4 weeks after the end of each calendar month for your Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits to be credited. Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits will not appear on your flybuys statement, see your Velocity account for your Status Credit balance. Velocity members also need to fly on Virgin Australia marketed flights to earn Eligible Sectors in addition to Status Credits to upgrade or maintain a new level of membership.
