How long should I be waiting for the email to link velocity account? Have only spent about $150 at the moment, does it come before/after meeting minimum spend?
It comes after you make the required spend. After you submit your VA number through the email, took about 3-4 days for me to receive the bonus points.

Yes $225 per year but you can easily make that pay with the free return flight (which in my experience pays points and status credits). It's particularly good for Syd-Per, which isn't allowed on eg the Amex Velocity free flight. The drop in rewards after $2k spend per month (0.75 VFF goes down to 0.25) is quite painful though.

Yes. Can get it up to $4k if carefully straddling the statement date (I'm thinking o/s spend coming up), but still painful.

do a closure by consolidation of black card limit once new card is approved. win win

Applied & approved today. Called as per @coolstepslg excellent advice to say I was planning on closing my black card, but they told me I was approved before I could even mention it.

I’m on my 2nd year as I paid the fee last month and haven’t received my new lot or virgin lounge passes yet. Need to call?

Not sure what you mean by lot but you have to call for the lounge passes - same number as for the free flight - 1300 367 763.

It comes after you make the required spend. After you submit your VA number through the email, took about 3-4 days for me to receive the bonus points.

I applied for the card (through the Point Hacks link of course), got approved after numerous requests to upload payslips (even though that was done at the point of application), went in store to verify ID in person, and now have made the required minimum spend (exactly $1500), on Friday last week.
The charge has posted to the account, and my ANZ Rewards account shows 2,250 ANZ Rewards points. However no correspondence has been received regarding Velocity or the 80,000 points and I'm worried I've just wasted a credit file hit, as well as $1500. Any ideas how to go about this, before I call up and enquire (in my experience, the call centre agents don't know about Point Hacks or promos such as this so it'll be a frustrating waste of time)?

Thanks heaps!

Applied for this on the 12th. I'm assuming if the application was lodged before the 14th all good for the points? Looks good value for the annual fee, plus as I have no SC the lounge passes will come in handy.

I have applied for this card (via points hacks) and been approved. Looking forward to the 80,000 points bonus, however there was a comment on the points hacks site (or maybe facebook post) to the effect that the email addresses held by ANZ and Velocity should be the same. Mine are not. Can I expect any grief?

When I rang up enquiring about when I would get the points back mid last year, the call centre guy through ANZ Rewards actually was aware of the promo I was using (wasn't PointHacks, AusBT's from memory - 40k points, silly me just missed out on the 80k promo by a month).

I think between reaching the spend and getting the email was about 1-2 weeks, and then a few business days to get the points in my account (definitely was not two months).

Gday

Nothing but praise for the bonus points processing with this card. Got the card in the mail 8 days ago. Bonus points hit my velocity account today.

I got my complementary flight upgraded to business using points so definitely worth it even though the T&Cs say it is not eligible for an upgrade. So my transcontinental business class flights cost me $225 plus the 60000 points so it is essentially a very cheap business class flight!

The 80k velocity points have now hit my account. Very happy about that.
ANZ makes their rewards program a bit complicated, but we got there in the end :)
Cheers everyone for the insights.

Similar experience. Minimum spend hit last Friday night, SMS yesterday (Thursday; asking for Velocity number) points arrived today. Seamless, AMEX-style experience, well done ANZ!
