    Hi all,

    Will also post this in the AmEx section - please delete one if you think inappropriate to "double post".

    This just in from my AmEx Centurion RM - am assuming it is going to be a general public offer, and not just limited to Cent -

    "Further to my previous email, I would also like to advise you a special offer for Velocity from the 1st to 31st May . You can transfer Membership Rewards points during the promotion period and receive 10% bonus points. Plus when you book a reward seat within the same period, you will get a 10% off discount."

    Cheers,

    Brooke

    Sweet thanks. Been waiting for this.

    Hopefully includes other credit card partners like the last few times.

    The bonus keeps decreasing every time they do the offer! I think the first was 35%?

    I think you're right, then the bonus fell to 25% in late 2008 or early 2009. Lots of us were hoping for the 5000/5 and 10,000/20 transaction bonuses to use when VA launched. (The launch was delayed though). When you were entitled, like some were, to 2,500,000 points, just a 5% loss was 125,000 points.

    Indeed VA's very first MR transfer bonus was 50% but that was when Velocity was initially launched. Right from day 1 Velocity ret J redemptions MEL-LAX were 180,000 Vel pts - I transferred 240K pts into Vel and netted 120k bonus to get to 360K total pts = 2 x J ret redems.

    I proceeded to book first J ret redem and did not check acc bal - Vel forgot to deduct 180K pts. A few days later I realised I had stuffed up return date and called them back to change ret date by 1 day. It was at this point that Vel realised they had not deducted the 180K pts - they were in such disarray in those early days I am quite sure it would have been a freebie had I not sought to amend original booking - double D'Oh!

    But I digress.
