My partners Velocity account pools to mine and today I noticed a random 10 status credits go in (no points).

On their account the transaction is described as:

Pay day - VA Status Credit BONUS 0 Points and 10 Status Credits Pooled to Velocity Member XXXXXXXXXXXX.

Any idea what this is??

Yep, I got it too. My daughter's account is pooling to mine, she has no flight activity at all and yet 10 SCs pops up. Same for my wife's account. I just checked my other daughter's account (not pooling to me as you can only have one adult) and there is nothing yet, which of course makes me wonder if a quick switch-a-roo is a good idea or not. Hmmm, maybe not.

I have now received this, recorded as pooled from my wife's account. Nothing directly into my account, or the kids' (also pooling to mine) though.

Yup. Got this one too on 1 out of the 4 accounts in our family. Surely has to be the "something's coming" promo, which is all about 10 million members. I think someone in IT stuffed up and started posting the SCs early...

My father's account (pooling to me) got some too.

I wonder if it's something like giving all Red members 10sc?

That might make sense with the red members. I got it for my kids pooling to me but not my husband who is Platinum like me.

Mr Clipped just got 30 - 10 each from myself and two sons (under 18). That brings his no-flying SC haul this year to 84 :)

I got a Pay day - VA Status Credit BONUS of 10 SC as well as another 10 SC pooled. Definitely linked to the 'Three exciting rewards on the way'...
