Get 15% bonus points when you transfer your credit card rewards points to your Velocity account during May.

This May, Velocity is giving Frequent Flyers the chance to get more rewards from their everyday credit card expenses. If you transfer your credit card or charge card points to your Velocity account between 1 May and 31 May 2016, you’ll receive 15% bonus Velocity Points.

If you’re with one of the nine participating partner banks, your everyday spending could reward you in the air if you choose to transfer your points to Velocity.

Compare how many points you’d regularly earn and calculate how far the 15% bonus could take your bonus points below.
