Didn’t want to start a new thread…

But has anyone had a slightly dodgy looking emails from Virgin business flyer asking to click a link to complete a ‘maintenance’ form?

Unsure if it’s a phishing scam or glitch..?

Not here. Did you inspect the email address?

I don't believe bus flyer will send out any emails asking for "maintenance" via a link.

Any updates/changes should be done directly at Virgin Australia B2B Portal

Got something back in September that looks similar, but this was go into the draw for 5 millions points by activating the offer. The link takes me to an update contact details form. populated with ABN

At Nintex automation website...

My question is the email I got today to say a glitch meant you business wasn't getting points, we've fixed it now.
No idea what this was. I might log in to see if any points have come in

"It was recently brought to our attention that over a number of months your business was not awarded Velocity Points and benefits (if applicable) that your business was entitled to. This was due to a glitch within our external vendor's system."
 
Anyone have this kind of relationship with your children?

I got this email about a glitch as well. No idea what the issue was, and nothing looks changed in my account.
 
I have recently closed my Virgin Business Flyer account and would like to know if I reopen the account whether I'm eligible for the tier one bonus of two pilot velocity gold after spenting $2K in the first three months of reopening the account.

Not if you are using the same ABN/ACN.

I flew with VA yesterday and the flight has credited to my Virgin Australia Business Flyer account as "Not eligible to earn points".

It's a regular J fare that I booked on the VA website - the only thing that's special about it is that I used a promo code (ZXW75) to get a 7% discount. Does this exclude you from earning points through Business Flyer?

FWIW the flight I took the day before, also booked with a (different) promo code, did earn points through Business Flyer.
 
Don't think this warrants a new thread, but......

Other than the discount for Flex and J fares, is there a difference between booking through the business portal and booking through the VA website with an ABN added?

Extra Velocity points, effectively doubled, and extra bonuses when you reach 2nd/3rd tier, such as awarding Gold Status to other Velocity members on your account.

I think you get all that if the booking was made through VA with an ABN added? That is, such a booking would count towards and accumulate points to the BF account.

Here is what constitutes an eligible flight for the current new sign up bonus:

A. a one-way domestic or short haul international flight marketed and operated by Virgin Australia, with a VA flight number, booked through virginaustralia.com adding their ABN number to the booking before travel, the Virgin Australia Business Flyer booking portal or via the member’s nominated Travel Management Company,
 
Has anybody had any issues signing up for the VA Business Flyer?

I have a current ABN and I applied last Monday, no email or anything so I applied again the next day. Same, nothing and I applied again yesterday, no acknowledgement of application of details of an account? The details I put in were all via the drop down boxes, so I believe I stayed withing the safety rails. Not sure what has happened. :(

I recall it was processed pretty quickly for me a few years ago.

But if it’s any consolation, even as an existing member I still get invites to join….🤷‍♂️

Haha, I'm still getting invites regularly, but no processing. :)
 
How do you go about claiming the pilot gold when you spend the $2000 in the first 3 months? I'm the admin in our business account, but I can't see where to do it?

I applied a week ago and I still haven't heard anything!
