    Hi, are there any bonus frequent flyer points with this offer?

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for contacting Finder.

      Unfortunately, there is no bonus frequent flyer points included in the introductory offer of Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card. You may compare the other Credit Card at this page that comes with Bonus Rewards points and No Annual Fee.

      Kindly make sure though to read the eligibility criteria, features and details of the card, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the card before making a decision and consider whether the product is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Please do not hesitate to reach out again to us if you have additional questions.

      Cheers,

    What do you mean by the 14 months 0% on purchases?

      JhezDecember 15, 2018Staff

      Hi Rashed,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Please be advised that 0% purchase rate credit card means you won’t be charged interest on purchases as long as you pay the minimum amount listed on each statement during the introductory period of 14 months from card activation.

      Alternatively, you may read our guide and compare cards that offer 0% rate on purchases.

    I was wondering what the cool-down time is to be eligible for the bonus points offer? E.g. the offer is not available to anyone who has held the card in the past 12 months (I couldn’t find any wording for this). Thanks!

    Hi just wondering does the 80% transfer limit mean if i have 12500 in cards now i can only transfer 80% x 12500 ?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      JohnDecember 10, 2018Staff

      Hi brendenjwilliams@hotmail.com,

      Thank you for your question.The Balance transfer % will depend on the approved credit limit given to you by the bank. As an example, if you are approved for $10000 as your credit limit, you may be able to transfer $8000 of your existing debt onto the card. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,

    I will be using this credit card primarily for an overseas holiday. The fees and foreign exchange rate that are incurred with purchases made overseas. Are these fees included in 0% interest free purchases?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      HaroldApril 14, 2017Staff

      Hi Jodie,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      When making purchases while travelling overseas, a fee equal to 3.3% of the transaction amount is charged. Fees charged will be reflected as a single amount on your credit card statement.

      I hope this information has helped.

      Cheers,
      Harold

      Hi Stuart,

      Glad to hear from you again.

      Anyway, this issue might be similar to what you’ve encountered before.
      Have you tried clearing your cache yet?

      Cheers,
      Ally

      I figured out that there was something wrong with my PC that’s why I was getting errors.
      I always clear cookies and cache that is the first thing I do then I try different browsers.

      Anyway…
      Again I know this is an exclusive offer with card finder but is there a phone # I can contact virgin at to ask some specific questions to about this card.

      Also I was told by other card companies that have applied to and was approved that a 457 visa is not considered a temporary visa. They consider temporary visas student visas, holiday visas, etc. and even a visa that is actually called a temporary visa.

      I have applied to 2 card companies that plainly said on a product details page like this one that said no to temporary residents but after I called them they said I would be eligible because I have a 457 and a permanent contract for Australia. (btw I have only lived in AUS 9 months). So it was a combination of how much $ I made per year, my contract length, credit history, and 457 visa that got me approved. Just figured I put that out there.

      Hi Stuart,

      I see.
      It’s good to know that you’re finally able to figure out what the problem was.
      I hope it’ll allow you to go through the application forms this time.

      As you’ve requested, I just emailed you a link to Virgin Money’s contact details.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,
      Ally

    Hi, can I earn points for payments made to the ATO with this card?
