3 easy ways to earn Velocity Points

If you’ve looked at the Velocity Rewards Store anytime recently, your might be getting excited by all the possibilities on offer.

There are some great deals in the Store, ranging from flights and hotels to gift vouchers and magazines. A question that might come to mind when faced with such an opportunity is: How do I earn these rewards?

Here are some great ways to earn Velocity Points if you have a Virgin Australia Velocity credit card.

Earn Velocity Points as you spend

Perhaps the easiest, most convenient way to start building your Velocity Points is to earn as you spend!

The Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Credit Card allows you to earn Velocity Points on every valid retail purchase you make using the card. For the first $1,500 of that month, you will be growing your points balance at a rate of one Point per $1! After that $1,500 has passed, you still earn Points, but at a rate of one point per $2*.

If you’re looking for a little bit more earning capacity, consider instead the benefits of the Virgin Australia Velocity High Flyer Credit Card. With this card, you will earn 1.25 Velocity Points per $1 uncapped on eligible retail purchases*, helping you reach your reward goals sooner.

*Of course, terms and conditions do apply and earn rates whilst accurate at date of publication may be subject to change, so be sure to check the Virgin Money Credit Card website for the latest Velocity Points information.

Your points are transferred into your Velocity Frequent Flyer Account at the end of each statement cycle, and they should appear within three business days of this time.

Earn big Velocity Points

On top of that, you might have taken up an offer to earn bonus Velocity Points immediately after approval of your new credit card, kick starting your Points balance from the word go.

These offers could net you potentially thousands of points within a shorter space of time, with additional chances to earn even more by performing simple tasks within set time frames, such as making an eligible retail purchase. Again, terms and conditions do apply to any bonus Points offers, so be sure to check the Virgin Money Credit Card website for the latest information.

Earn Velocity Points with an additional cardholder

Now here’s the kicker: You can earn points through the spending of a spouse, partner or other significant person.

You can have up to four additional people on your Virgin credit card, and every dollar they spend helps you earn more Velocity Points. Note, additional cardholder fees do apply.
