Card Promotions New Offer 30k Points or 200 status credits with CC Sign-Up

Hi All,

I just saw online that Velocity has a 30,000 Velocity points or 200 status credit for opening certain credits cards.
  • First, choose your exclusive benefit (30,000 bonus Points OR 200 Status Credits) by 31 March 2024. Be sure to choose wisely because once your choice is made you will not be able to change it.
  • Then, apply for a Velocity Points earning credit card with an annual fee by 31 March 2024.
  • Be approved for your chosen card and meet the minimum spend criteria as specified by the provider.
  • Your chosen benefit will then be applied to your Velocity account after the minimum spend criteria as specified by the provider is met.
The promo can be found here.

Wow wasn't expecting the offer to come back so quickly. Looks like although the offer ends 31 March, Velocity Flyer Card first year annual fee discount end March 4.

8. Annual Fee 
Virgin Australia Velocity Flyer Card half annual fee offer is available to new customers that apply by 4 March 2024. The annual card fee is $64 for the first year, then $129 will be charged on the anniversary of your card account being opened with Virgin Money.

$64 annual card fee for the first year and then $129 after that8 (Annual fees are subject to change. Effective March 2024, the annual fee is increasing to $149 for new applicants.)
I'm tossing up between Velocity Flyer and Velocity High Flyer
 
Posted over in OzB.

I applied for the Westpac Altitude Platinum Card - took five minutes for the application and approved straightaway. They then sent an information pack via email and I could set up a digital card on my phone immediately, whilst waiting for the physical card to arrive in several days. I’ve already started to spend on this card.

Will hopefully meet the $4K spend criteria then sign up my wife on the same card before the promo period ends in March.

I'm tossing up between Velocity Flyer and Velocity High Flyer
I just applied and received preliminary approval for the Velocity Flyer, it was immediately after selecting the SC bonus so hopefully no problems with eligibility.
 
The days of 100k bonus points on the Velocity Flyer card are probably gone, but 90k + $129 VA voucher is not bad as well.
 
Does anyone know what the exclusion periods are for past card holders?

Is it 18 months for Amex, 12 months for Westpac?
 
This promo is back. This time, it is 30K bonus points or 200SC. Shows both on Velocity & VA app on iPhone.

However, when I wanted to activate this offer - I only get the 30K bonus points options and not the 200SC option. There is no information in the T&C that prevents some members from selecting the 200SC option, unless, I have missed something?

On iPhone, the promo card shows in the home page, click on it, shows the details (30K bonus points or 200SC), click Select Benefit, does a quick FaceID check and then ONLY shows the 30K bonus points benefit, not the 200SC.

I was able to select the 200SC via the website on a computer/laptop though. So iPhone users beware and use a laptop/computer instead.

I'm now looking at various cards that I can apply. I have zeroed in on the Virgin Money Flyer card


There is a statement on the above link that the offer is applicable to new customers only. However, when I looked at the variety of guides Virgin Money have in this link, there is no mention of or clear definition of who the new customer is. Usually CCs have 12-18 month exclusion period, however, where is this documented?

Anyone have any idea? or experience in finding the criteria for a *new customer* for Virgin Money?

No idea, but I've had a virgin money CC 3 separate occasions, all coming with ~100k bonus points and been a virgin money account holder for many years continuously.

What was the gap between the 3 separate occasions that you held the card?
 
I just got offered 200k Amex Business Velocity card + this bonus. They're really going hard right now.
 
Took out the virgin money flyer just before the last promo expired and got that additional VA bonus 30k points in Jan on first statement. Second statement seems to have triggered this months 30k VA bonus.
If I take out another card can I get it twice 🧐

It's based on citibank issued cards, isn't it?
 
Anyone received an email confirming enrolment in the offer? It says you're supposed to wait for that email, but been waiting 24 hours for it ...

Enrolled Monday this week and have not received any emails so far. However, if I log into to my Velocity account, go to the offer and select the bonus, I can see that the selection I did on Monday is saved.

Damn....applied and approved for Amex Velocity card very recently....still awaiting for card to arrive...if I sign up.now for extra 30K Velocity pts, wonder if will also get it? Any experiences from previous offer?

I get the same, so I assume I'm good to go.
 
What was the gap between the 3 separate occasions that you held the card?
6-12 month gap, had each card for 12-15 months as was my preferred card for a while, especially the high flyer.
Few years ago there wasn't this 12-18 month restriction per card for the bonus points.
 
Does anyone know if you can use this offer multiple times? I should be able to hit the spend criteria by end of this month for the first card that ive been approved for. This then then gives me another month to apply for an additional card before the promo ends.
