finder Rewards Roundup: Amex, Velocity, Qantas
Score up to 70,000 bonus points with these frequent flyer deals from American Express, Velocity and Qantas.
Whether you're travelling, buying groceries or getting a new credit card, here are the latest bonus points deals from three of Australia's favourite loyalty programs.
Earn 70,000 bonus Velocity Points with the American Express Velocity Platinum card
Calling all Velocity Frequent Flyers: You can score 20,000 extra bonus Velocity Points without spending extra with the American Express Velocity Platinum card. Exclusive to finder users, you’ll get 70,000 bonus Velocity Points when you receive approval and spend $3,000 within the first 3 months of card membership. That's 20,000 more bonus points than you’ll earn if you apply anywhere else!
It's also enough points to fly from Sydney to LA in Premium Economy or to Fiji in Business Class, just to give you some holiday ideas. This card also offers one of the most competitive Velocity Points earn rates on the market. You’ll collect 1.5 Velocity Points per $1 spent on eligible purchases and 0.5 points per $1 spent with government bodies. And good news for loyal Virgin Australia flyers, you’ll also get an extra 1 Velocity Point per $1 you spend on eligible Virgin purchases.
Designed to suit frequent flyers, the card also comes with a complimentary domestic return flight as well as two complimentary single entry passes to Virgin Australia lounges and American Express Lounges each year.

Earn up to 3,000 bonus Velocity Points with Global Wallet
Planning an overseas trip? You could reward yourself with up to 3,000 Velocity Points without spending anything this month. If you activate your Velocity Global Wallet card in September and use the promo code 'GW_SEP', you can earn 1,000 bonus Velocity Points every month you load AUD$1,000 or more into a foreign currency wallet. This offer is available for up to 3 months, so you could pocket 3,000 Velocity Points in total.
The Velocity Global Wallet supports 11 currencies, including EUR, USD, GBP and NZD. You’ll also collect 2 Velocity Points per $1 spent overseas and 1 point per $3 spent in Australia. This bonus points offer is only available if you activate your Global Wallet by 30 September 2018, so you only have a few weeks left to take advantage of this deal.
Earn more Qantas Points at Woolworths this weekend
You can treat yourself to bonus Qantas Points when you buy the groceries online this weekend. Until 11.59pm Tuesday 18 September 2018, you’ll score 3 Qantas Points per $1 spent at Woolworths online.
To get the points, make sure you shop at Woolworths through Qantas Online Mall. You won’t earn the bonus points if you head to the Woolworths online store directly.
This bonus points offer also presents better frequent flyer value than if you were to shop in-store and exchange your Woolworths Rewards for Qantas Points. With a transfer rate of 2,000 Woolworths Rewards for 870 Qantas Points, this means you’ll only earn 0.43 Qantas Points per $1 spent in store.
Before you hit the checkout, you should note that you won’t earn Qantas Points if you’re purchasing or paying with a gift card.
