I would act immediately if not sooner. I speak here from experience with Ansett, when NZ raped it and sent it broke I lost not only thousands of points but life membership.Hi All,
I need some advice from the brains trust on this forum.
I, like many on here, have hundreds of thousands of points sitting with velocity. With the current COVID-19 situation and virgins financial position I’m concerned that if the airline was declare bankruptcy points may disappear..
What’s the likelihood of this happening and should I withdraw my points by purchasing gift cards to get some cash value at what I have..?
am I making a mountain out of a mole hill.. or is there a real threat to my velocity points been wiped out..?
It worked as of 5pm yesterday... transferred 8000 flybuys points to velocity to reduce some cost for an IPadDo transfers between flybuys and velocity still work? I've noticed flybuys offers have decreased greatly which is surprising as I reckon Coles are making more money now than ever before.. but I suppose they don't want people to be making the minimum spend by bulk buying essentials that are hard enough to find.
Was one flight away from that ... cancelled due to Victorian shutdown.I got the points transferred to SQ at 1.30 pm est, it was only through reading this thread that made me act. I suppose the black metal platinum bag tag can now be retired in the shoe box next to the Golden Wing tag.
where you short on sectors or status credits or bothWas one flight away from that ... cancelled due to Victorian shutdown.
Have to admit I am a bit pissed about not getting one after a year trying to achieve it.
Helped by people who claim they don't panic.
I transferred over 3 times that 200K SQ, my partner a lot too, and many others will have too, so his figures may not be too fanciful. And many had balances many times ours.
The writing has been on the wall for weeks now, to all with eyes.
Have to remember when you are redeeming Velocity points for Virgin flights, Velocity isn‘t really paying Virgin that much for the flights.Of course it would.
