Pay day?

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??

I also now got my 10 in addition to the 10 pooled to me earlier.

10 SC's arrived in the last 30 mins ... perhaps no good to me as I would requalify WP (just) anyway with existing bookings.

How corny. :(:(:(

Got 10 SC, and my review date is in 2 weeks, so of course all my SC are earned already to renew Plat - months back.

What possible excitement will this be for most?

If one had the option to roll it into the next year's account, WHOOPPEE it saves flying one domestic segment. Better than nothing, which this deposit is

A coupon for 10% off all flights to celebrate 10 million members makes some SENSE and creates some REVENUE.

Ah yes my theory is out the window as I (WP) received the SC as well. Though like serfty was all set with forward bookings to retain...

Lol, grumpy much?!

I imagine for every person like you two weeks out from renewal there’s someone like me 2 weeks into renewal. Family pooling means 20 SC landed in my account, I value that as an annoying Melb -Syd day trip for work I can comfortably skip! Excitement is too strong a word, but I’m pleasantly surprised.

Hope the other two offers are more suited to you :)

Both Mrs Jase and I (both Platinum) received the 10SC’s. Not much good to me but Mrs Jase is only 120SC’s away from being able to gift a gold

I already earned the 800 sc to requalify for plat halfway through my year so not sure what the point of giving an extra 10 sc is. Might have been useful if Velocity gave some warning so I could have pooled to my partner instead of them sitting in my account.
