Velocity frequent flyers can now earn reward points on electricity bills with EnergyAustralia.

Virgin Australia's Velocity loyalty program has announced its partnership with EnergyAustralia today, giving frequent flyers yet another way to collect points on everyday costs. From tomorrow, the union will reward new and existing EnergyAustralia customers who link their energy account with their Velocity membership.

If you’re not already an EnergyAustralia customer, you can earn up to 20,000 Velocity Points if you sign up to an eligible gas and electricity account and link it with your frequent flyer account before 3 May 2017. Current customers will also enjoy a smaller bonus of 1,000 Velocity Points when they join Velocity and link their memberships before this date. Plus, existing customers can look forward to a $100 Virgin Australia Holidays voucher to use towards flights and holiday packages when they link their accounts.

Both new and existing customers who have linked their EnergyAustralia and Velocity accounts will receive a bonus 2,000 Velocity Points every year on the anniversary of when they signed up to each of their energy accounts.

This partnership will give Velocity Frequent Flyers another way to earn points on utilities and energy bills now that the loyalty scheme is no longer partnered with Lumo Energy.

It’s been a big week for Velocity, who today announced that they’ve reached 7 million frequent flyer members and also announced a new partnership with Kaligo to let members redeem points for hotel stays yesterday.
