I stumbled across an eBay listing and seem to recall this being discussed on AFF and on Ausbt recently, it looks like someone is having a crack at selling VA platinum membership on eBay.

I wonder how the seller arrived at that price. :confused: For the record this is not me selling it.

I think $946 is a very reasonable price for Velocity Plat...I'm not buying but for eg I'm spending nearly the same amount doing a SC run with Dble SCs Syd-Mel-Lst rtn In Nov to get to Velocity Plat!

@Denali I have no idea why you got this message after I clicked on my own link I just received an auction/ sale end message. All those tiles that you show above I have no idea were they came from.

Its just the algorithm so dont be concerned. I looked at a item for sale that was frequent flyer related and then all the hotel status items popped up.

Im not overly concern. If I go back to looking at cactus then similar items will start popping up.

I think the item has been pulled rather than sold.

Actually it sold.

The no longer available message comes whether it sold, or the item ended another way (including time finished).

How is it even possible to sell WP status? The mechanics of getting status to another person? Change names by deed poll?

Velocity Platinum who earn a significant number of SC betond that for requalifying can gift platinum to any one. (They are not supposed to sell it.)

Facepalm!

Of course - partner platinum. I've given partner gold to my wife in the past so should've known.

Yep I will be able to do this during the year. My VA rollover was in late May 19 and I am already north of 1300 SCs.

I'm giving Gold (no, not the real stuff can't afford that) to my wife sometime in the next 12 months, just achieved the give-away in my recently-finished status year.

I do not think so, I have given away VA SG on AFF over the past 2 years and a lot of other stuff. I have little or no interest of adhering to eBay rules when I can just give stuff away on this site.
Jokes...... :)

It's interesting because it's so easy to phone help desk, give name, Velocity # and ta dah, gifted gold or platinum.

Pretty sure I wouldn't risk points balance/suspension over $900.
