It’s November. And like clockwork, Velocity has launched a promotion offering a 15% bonus points on transfers from a range of partners.
Running throughout November, the promotion includes transfers from credit card partners, hotel partners, and flybuys. But that’s not all. This time around, they have added a bonus when transferring points from Krisflyer.
Once again, ANZ is offering its customers an additional boost. Anyone transferring from ANZ will be in line for a 30% bonus.
Bonus Velocity Points offer
The transfer bonus is valid for transfers made between 1 November and 20 November 2019.
It is a style of promotion that Velocity runs a ones or twice a year. The 15% bonus has become the norm for the bonus, although there are some partners that occasionally offer a boost.
The main thing to watch out for is that some programs have limits on the number of points you can transfer. While these are mostly limits on the minimum points transfer, Flybuys also has has an annual maximum.
First up, we have the credit card partners. Most of the participating cards are offering a bonus of 15% when transferring to Velocity. As usual, ANZ is offering an additional booster amount.
Keep in mind that the bonus doesn’t apply to credit cards that automatically earn Velocity Points. It only applied to cards where you manually transfer points to Velocity.
- The following Credit Card Partners are offering the standard 15% bonus points
- American Express,
- Citi Bank,
- Diners Club,
- Card Services,
- Bank of Queensland and
- Credit Card Partners offering a bonus boost
- ANZ – 15% bonus + 15% boost
Next, we have hotel partners. Transfers from the loyalty programs of the following chains will attract a 15% bonus.
- Accor Hotels
- Marriott Rewards
Flybuys is offering its usual 15% bonus points. The standard transfer rate from flybuys to Velocity is 2000 flybuys points transfers as 870 Velocity Points. When you take the 15% bonus into account, this becomes 2,000 flybuys points transfers to a total of just over 1,000 Velocity Points.
There is also a bonus on offer when transferring from KrisFlyer. This is the first time that I can remember KrisFlyer being a participating partner.
Krisflyer normally transfers at a rate of 1.55 Krisflyer Points to 1 Velocity Point. The 15% bonus makes this approximately 1.35 Krisflyer Points to 1 Velocity Point.
Further details on the promotion may be found on the Velocity website.
