    Re: Earn up to 30,000 Velocity Points with the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card

    I'm tempted... This seems like a good deal at $129 for 30k points. Has it been any better via previous Velocity CC promos? I could care less for the four free partner flights or any of the other card benefits, I'm just after some quick, cheap n dirty VFF points.

    50K and 200 SC's for $99 late 2011 but for some ( myself included) it was more painful than childbirth to get them

    Yup, no doubt that was the best offer in the last year which I foolishly did not take advantage of. Disregarding those super promo specials, I can't think/find anything of similar value.

    Does any one know if its possible to cancel your card and apply again to get the points bonus? I missed out on the points bonus deal last year because Virgin Money screwed up my application.

    Just adding my data point into the thread - that I successfully got approved for the Virgin Money Visa Plat in Feb and the first bonus 10K VFF points were honoured and posted correctly in Velocity, I have until May to spend $6K on the card to get the bonus 20K VFF points so will let you guys know if they honour that.

    Apart from the "over the top" paranoid and intrusive security features online in particular - the card has been good and has done everything I need it to do.

    Same with us EastWest. We have had no problems with the Plat Visa...all points posting correctly

    May or may not be possible. You would need to close the account entirely I would think. The offer is still on - on a number of different cards so provided you have the time and inclination to go through re-application proccess I can't see why not.

    Did you try to talk to Virgin Money about the mistake made in your application, what sort of mistake was it?

    Re: Earn up to 30,000 Velocity Points with the Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card

    That is a decent offer but I notice the balance transfer rates have increased and the balance transfer period reduced.

    I applied in November when the offer was for 15,000 Velocity points and made a $50 purchase on the card and received 7,550 Velocity points. Not interested in the remaining points as the spend is too high. I will cancel the card when the balance transfer expires in November and then try and start again.

    Yes JohnK - a good example of YMMV as I was not transferring a balance at all - so the interest rate and balance transfer period did not matter to me. But it does matter to other people of course! Reducing the balance transfer period is a sign that maybe a lot of people in the past did the balance transfer and then churned the card once they picked up the bonus VFF points.

    I imagine that for some people, churning cards and picking up bonus points could be a full time occupation, really only limited to the effect it may have on your credit rating and the inconvenience/effort involved in the application/cancellation/re-application proccess - which isn't too bad except with PAYE salary people whom have to provide proof of employment via a phone number of their Employer HR manager. For this reason alone (not trying to drive my HR manager insane with contact from banks & credit card companies) I limit my churn.

    Any other PAYE employees found a way around this whole "for credit check purposes we want to ring and annoy your employer HR manager" problem?
