If you’ve joined Ve­loc­ity Fre­quent Flyer it’s prob­a­bly be­cause some­one told you it in­volved be­ing re­warded with flights, up­grades or gift vouch­ers for the things you’re al­ready do­ing — and we’re here to de­liver.

Here are five sim­ple things you can do — in fact, most of them are things you prob­a­bly al­ready do — that can go to­wards ‘pay­ing’ for your next hol­i­day, from the fun stuff (on­line shop­ping) to the ever-present lifead­min tasks (like pay­ing bills).

Check your Ve­loc­ity num­ber

Dou­ble check your mem­ber­ship num­ber as you book flights. You can al­ways go back and claim Points for el­i­gi­ble flights taken with Vir­gin Aus­tralia and our global part­ners in the past three months, but we sug­gest you down­load your dig­i­tal card so you al­ways have your num­ber with you.

Check your credit card

Credit cards can be the fre­quent- and non-fre­quent flyer’s se­cret to boost­ing Ve­loc­ity Points. A Ve­loc­ity Point-earn­ing credit card al­lows you to earn Points per $1 spent2 and, de­pend­ing on the card, give you ex­tras like bonus Points, com­pli­men­tary flights and lounge passes.

Put all your Points in one place

Did you know you can trans­fer your credit card re­ward points from bank part­ners to your Ve­loc­ity ac­count and con­vert them to Ve­loc­ity Points in­stead? 3 You can also trans­fer your points from Sin­ga­pore Air­lines’ KrisF­lyer or ho­tel re­wards pro­grams like ShangriLa’s Golden Cir­cle Awards, Star­wood Pre­ferred Guest, Le Club Ac­corHo­tels, Hilton Honors or IHG Re­wards Club.

Don’t for­get your fly­buys

Link your fly­buys card to your Ve­loc­ity mem­ber­ship and shop at Coles, Kmart or plenty of other fly­buys part­ners, and you can put fly­buys points to­wards flights when you trans­fer them to Ve­loc­ity4. To ‘dou­ble dip’ and get re­warded with two lots of Ve­loc­ity Points in one shop, scan your fly­buys card and use a Ve­loc­ity Points-earn­ing credit card, then trans­fer the fly­buys points to your Ve­loc­ity ac­count.

Get Points for on­line shop­ping

Turn your new wardrobe into your next get­away by log­ging onto Ve­loc­ity when shop­ping on­line. Earn Ve­loc­ity Points at more than 200 re­tail­ers by nav­i­gat­ing to the Ve­loc­ity eS­tore. Log in, so we can track your pur­chase, then hit the on­line shops. If you’re ask­ing your­self whether this is a good rea­son to add a new pair of jeans or that sound sys­tem you were eye­ing to your bas­ket — yes. Yes it is.
