Win 2 return Business Class tickets to anywhere on the Singapore Airlines network this month

Velocity is offering you the chance to win a holiday of your dreams with Singapore Airlines every day in February. If you transfer your credit card points, flybuys points or Global Wallet points to your Velocity account in February, you’ll be in the running to win two return Business Class tickets to any of the 62 locations on the Singapore Airlines network. Velocity is giving away prizes every day this month, meaning there are 28 chances to win!

If you own a rewards credit card or belong to the flybuys loyalty program, every point you transfer and credit to your Velocity account will count as an entry to win. So, the more points you transfer, the higher your chances are to win.

So, if you already have Auto-Redemption set up and your credit cards rewards automatically transfer to your Velocity account, you’ll automatically be in the draw to win. If you haven’t opted into Auto-Redemption, you can sign into your credit card rewards account and follow the prompts to transfer your credit card rewards points to Velocity Points.

Velocity is partnered with some of Australia’s biggest banks including American Express, Commonwealth Bank, ANZ, Citi, Westpac and HSBC, meaning plenty of rewards cards are eligible.

With less than three weeks left to enter, though, you better get transferring if you want your crack at one of the remaining prizes! If you’re one of the lucky winners, you’ll be contacted by phone or email and will have until 30 June 2017 to book your flight.
