These offers went away for a little while but are now back until 31 October 2021.
Cheers, hadn’t seen these offers. Looking for a non Amex deal. Not many about, but good points bonus on these, but wary of only 0.66 points per dollar spend on Flyer card.

Does anyone know whether VA SC earned through credit card signups will transfer through family pooling?

Took a week for partners to be approved, PITA, like a lot of signups. Statement was issued 1 month after approval date, so lucky we had met $1500 spend in the 10 days we had access to the card! 26,000pts credited to Virgin same day as statement. Working well. Note: VirginMoney not accepted into google pay, so had to pay $19 for additional card. All good, minor inconvenience.

I note this offer valid until 20th December. I wouldn't mind on giving this another go (the Flyer for 100k for $64 first year fee), although I have a few too many open cards at the moment. I will close a few in the coming weeks, but by the time they appear on my credit report as closed 20th Dec will be long past - not sure if they will extend the offer or not.

Maybe I should just apply and hope for the best, but dealing with Citi makes me a bit nervous.

Approved. They did follow up with some dicky questions however gave me 5k extra VFF points for the trouble on top of the promotion - very un Citi like. Given this is my 5th open CC at the moment, I thought that may have caused me some problems. I'll start closing a few before going a 6th.

Does anyone know if there is a 12 month block out on this? I can't see it on the T&Cs so appears to be for any new customers irrespective if they've held Citi or Virgin products? Appears to be good deal.

I think you're as Flash as Michael Jackson - I see this in the TC's

Offer is not available to existing Virgin Money Credit Card holders (including upgrades).

If it was going to be mentioned it would be here.

True to their word, after 1st month statement 25k plus 5k points landed in my VFF account plus around 2k for spend. Better than a poke in the eye.

$3500/month for 4 months? Possibly a record spend requirement! Looks like a good deal though.

I had opposite negative experience.
Have velocity high flyer card (Citi) and didn't get approved for another Citi backed card few months back.

Opposite to opposite to @MooTime I have the Velocity Flyer Card and was recently approved for another Citi card a few weeks ago. The application approval appeared automatic rather than somebody making a decision as was approved immediately upon completion of activation.
