Worked in my App for myself and Husband, but for my two kids I get "offer not available in app"
Same app, same phone.
Similar, 3 of family worked and 2 didn't on the same phone. I didn't spend any more time on it.

Will this count as activity for the purposes of resetting the clock on 18 month point expiry?
See, it says the chance to win.
Edit: ah, I didn't read too deep into it, its not a "your chance to win" this time round, so everyone is guaranteed a share, ...
I am not downloading, till they say its a must for everyone, that its needed to do OLCI for all and every domestic flight.
So, its not a cert that everyone who downloads the app will get the points.
I didn't get involved in the previous chance to win, as mentioned above, so can't say.
Its hard to say too, if you do win a small amount of points, if it will count as activity, as there is nothing on a person's VFF account that signifies as activity, like what used to show on the QFF side, when we used to have the squiggle to show SC earnings, but that got removed.
Maybe if you do need activity, without flying, is to as mention on other threads, buy some knick knacks from the VFFstore.

I used IOS one and no issues. May be restart the app and try again.
I logged in with my daughters account and it came up with the error. Restarted the app and the offer is not available/visible

Considering the promo is for using the Velocity App, and check in is done in the Virgin Australia App...

and the ~ for qantas denoted an eligible flight against the requirement to do 4 flights to get status, not to show if points earning counted as activity.

Clear the data & cache of the app on your phone, log in again and it should work.

I think the over 18 caveat would be due to the words "promotion", which loosely constitutes gaming (gambling)?

Possibly. My guess is that during the last such "promotion", lots of parents who use family pooling also signed up their kids for the offer. Which defeats the main purpose of the promo, i.e. for Velocity to get an idea of how many individual members are actively engaged.

Mine received too. Same 159. So there are only 125,786 active velocity members?
