Velocity celebrates its first rebrand in 11 years by rewarding credit card holders with up to 50% bonus Velocity Points.

New month, new look. Virgin Australia’s Velocity frequent flyer program has kicked off May with some new branding. Created by brand and design partner Hulsbosch, you’ll notice that everything from member welcome packs to member cards, brochures and luggage tags have all had a makeover. You can expect your new Velocity card to have a fresh design and a matte finish and you can check out some examples of the schmick rebrand below.

To celebrate their fresh new look, Velocity is giving frequent flyers a chance to receive their share of 1 billion Velocity Points this month. If you transfer your credit card rewards points to your Velocity frequent flyer account by 31 May 2017, you’ll receive a bonus 15% Velocity Points. So, the more points you move, the bigger your bonus.

Velocity boasts a vast array of banking partners, so you can look forward to receiving bonus points if you have a rewards credit card with American Express, ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, NAB, Westpac, Citi, St.George, Bank of Melbourne, BankSA, HSBC, Diners Club, Card Services, Suncorp Bank, Bank of Queensland, Coles and flybuys.

Plus, good news for ANZ credit card holders. If you move your ANZ Rewards to Velocity Points during May, you’ll receive 50% bonus Velocity Points! That’s 35% more points than what everyone else can earn.

Exactly what you can redeem with your bonus points will depend on the number of points you’re transferring, but let’s say you’re transferring 10,500 ANZ Rewards from your ANZ Rewards credit card. This could earn you an economy flight from Sydney to Melbourne, the Gold Coast or Brisbane. You can use the points calculator on the Velocity website to determine how far your bonus points could take you this month.
