Hi,

there’s a 7 day 15% flybuy bonus from today (18-25/2).
I transfer 138000. And got them immediately in my Velocity account. And also got another 20% again? Not sure why but not complaining!

Cheers
And thanks for the heads up. Hubby was suffering from some point loss anxiety so this put him back where he was before I raided his account last week.

I had 137k ready to go (so close!) pending the next bonus. So after testing one 2k batch I moved a total of 136k with 20% and 15% bonuses for 79870 Velocity points. I did a few large transfers (sacrificing ~30 points from rounding-up on 2k transfers) because I didn't want the bonus bonus to get fixed before I was done. Thanks all for the heads-up.

Got email offer for 15%, transferred 2,000 and got 15% (870+131).
i am Velocity Red. Only had 5,000 flybuys points.

Brother who pools to me got 20% email.
he is also Velocity Red and had about 5,000 flybuys points
transferred 4,000 flybuys but only got 15% (1,740+261) rather than 20% which was shown in his email.

Same. So not only short changed by FB, we're missing out on all this extra goodies everyone is getting.

My email: 15% bonus
Mrs AS email: 20% bonus

Transferred mine and got 15%
Transferred Mrs AS and she got 15%

Sounds like they might be trying to fix it - and not doing a very good job......

Velocity gold here - email said 15% and that’s what I got.

Seems like this may have been fixed, but I forgot to include the datapoint that I'm Gold and my invite email mentioned the customary 15% rate.

I got no email and the flybuys page does not indicate any bonus points, previous promos have had a little badge/logo indicating the bonus points. I tried minimum points transfer and got 15% bonus (red level Velocity member). Transferred my remaining points and got the 15% bonus.

Strange that they didn't email all members about this offer, but appears to be valid for all members. No advertising on Velocity or flybuys about the offer.

Thanks to AFF. :)

Been now pointed to this thread and as advised in the other VFF 15% thread. I received 20% offer and are gold. Rest of the family who are Red didn't not receive an email.

I did a 2k transfer and only got 15%, not the 20% advised, so I've been ripped. About to travel O/S so too hard to follow up, but I'm sure many others will and hopefully be fixed in some remediation.

Wow! The difference in points for a 2k transfer is like 43.33 velocity points.

I don't think status matters. Red across 4 accounts. About 250k Flybuys across 4 accounts transferred yesterday, got 15% + 20% bonus.

Glad to see everyone scoring double bonuses but this does not reflect my experience.
I responded to a 20% bonus offer, open until 25 February. Clicked through and did the transfer today but only received 15% bonus in my Velocity statement. Grrrr.
