My wife & I currently hold Bank of Melbourne Amplify Platinum cards linked to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, which we have become disenchanted with.

If we wish to start putting our points to the Virgin Velocity program through a Bank of Melbourne Amplify Platinum card linked to the Virgin Velocity program can we just transfer our allegiance to the Virgin Velocity program through the Bank of Melbourne or do we need to apply for a new Bank of Melbourne for a new Bank of Melbourne Amplify Platinum card?

Hi Ross,

You can contact Bank of Melbourne and request to switch from earning Qantas Points to Amplify Points on your existing card. Amplify Points can then be transferred to your Velocity Frequent Flyer account. I hope this helps.

Hi Ian,

Yes, there are banks and other lenders in Australia that accept credit card applications from people on a pension. You can compare cards in Finder’s guide to credit cards for pensioners, which also has more details on what you need to provide for an application. I hope this helps.
