You can now earn Velocity Points on your Internet bill
Earn 15,000 Velocity Points on your Internet bills with iPrimus.
In a first for Virgin Australia’s Velocity, frequent flyers can now pick up points as they use the Internet. From today, Velocity has partnered with iPrimus to allow members to earn points for every $1 they spend on their Internet bill.
If you sign up for the $80 24-month unlimited data plan until 31 July 2018, you’ll score 15,000 Velocity Points. That’s enough points to redeem an economy flight from Sydney to Melbourne (7,800 points plus AU$21.11 taxes) or Melbourne to the Gold Coast (11,800 points plus AU$19.39 taxes)!
You’ll receive your points after you pay your second invoice, and from the third month onwards you’ll also pick up 2 points per $1 spent on your iPrimus plan. After the introductory points offer, you’ll also receive your points within a week or so after paying your invoice.
Unfortunately, you won’t earn points on add-ons such as Fetch TV and mobile plans, late payment fees or charges, connection fees or delivery charges.
Although this is an exciting first for Velocity Frequent Flyers, make sure to check out the details of the plan before you’re enticed by the promise of points.
At this stage, Velocity is currently the only frequent flyer program offering points for Internet plans.
"Velocity is thrilled to partner with iPrimus, who is the first Internet provider in the Velocity program," said Dean Chadwick, Velocity Frequent Flyer's chief marketing officer.
"We’re continually looking at new ways for our members to earn Velocity Points on their everyday household expenditure and iPrimus is just another example of that."
Although Qantas Frequent Flyer has a partnership with Vodafone which allows you to earn points on data through your mobile plan, it currently doesn’t have any Internet provider partners.
