Earn double Velocity Status Credits shopping at Coles and Liquorland
If you have linked your flybuys account with your Velocity Frequent Flyer membership, you can earn double Status Credits when shopping at either Coles, Coles Online, Liquorland and First Choice Liquor in December.
You will earn two Status Credit points for every $100 spent, up to a maximum of 20 credits. Haven't linked your account? You can do so here. Just make sure that the promotion appears on your flybuys MyOffers page.
Get 2,000 bonus flybuys points when you buy gift cards at Coles
You can score 2,000 bonus flybuys points when you pick up a $50 or $100 Uber gift card, Netflix gift card or Google Play gift card at Coles. Those 2,000 flybuys points convert to 870 Velocity Points. These types of offers come around every now and then but are often tied to higher value ($100 or more) gift card purchases.
EXTENDED: 15% bonus Velocity Points for converting partner points
Have you saved up a bunch of credit card, hotel or flybuys rewards? Now might be an opportune time to transfer them to Virgin Australia's Velocity Frequent Flyer Program. Extended until 9 December, you will earn 15% bonus Velocity Points when you convert your partnered reward points to your frequent flyer account. There's no registration process involved, you just need to transfer your points as you normally would.
The bonus Velocity Points are calculated as a percentage of the base number of Velocity Points you get once you convert your partner points to Velocity Points. Higher tier members won't receive more points than others.
For example, if you transferred 2,000 flybuys points outside of this promotion you would receive 870 Velocity Points. However, if you transfer the same amount of flybuys points before the end of November, you will receive 1,000.5 Velocity Points. Use our flybuys to Velocity Points calculator to compare points transfer bonuses.
Bonus points will become available within 72 hours. Check out the full list of participating rewards partners.
Score up to 120,000 bonus miles when buying American Airline miles
At the best value, you will pay 1.77 US cents per mile. It's helpful to know that the number of bonus miles will decrease on a daily basis until the promotion ends. All purchases must be made by 5pm, 14 December (AEST).
You can redeem AA miles with multiple global carriers, including oneworld partner Qantas.
