Will be keeping a close eye on this with a review date in July, ideally if i get the points challenge can do a flybuys transfer while there's the 15% bonus. But don't want to transfer if my account isn't eligible, or get a challenge to do it later and have no fb points left to do it with!

Gold and Platinum tiers have never been easier or cheaper to obtain or maintain IMO.

Can maintain Platinum for under $1500 and Gold for easily under $1k

Exactly .. anyone who cannot breeze it in, with a these double SC to end June, which have applied for most of this year really has no real interest in higher status and certainly does not deserve having it.

Fly the airline, give them some money, and you get some status. Or do not. Simple option!

The last two years of auto status extensions are finally over this year folks. Virgin are trying to run a business.

Anyone got the full 12 months showing on their Velocity Account?

Mine is currently showing 28 Jan 2023 only.

Did you get the Fly/5000 pts offer?
No, received "your Gold Status will be extended" additional 12 months email.
Email does note;
"Please note: We will be applying your 12 month extension on 1 June 2022 and this may be after your current review date. You may see varying dates in your Velocity account whilst we process this change. Rest assured that you will still have access to your Gold Status membership benefits while we are adding the extension to your membership."
