If you’ve been collecting Flybuys points, keep an eye on your email inbox this month! Flybuys and Velocity Frequent Flyer have been sending targeted offers to Flybuys members with linked Velocity accounts during April. Some members have even received offers of bonus Velocity status credits for Flybuys transfers.
There are a few different deals on Flybuys transfers to Velocity going around this month. Some members have received an offer of 10 bonus Velocity status credits for transferring 10,000 Flybuys points to Velocity. 10,000 Flybuys points are worth 4,350 Velocity points. This would be a great offer if you were just short of the status credits required to reach a higher Velocity status tier.
Other Flybuys members have received offers of bonus Velocity points on Flybuys transfers for the month of April. These bonus amounts range from 5% to 15%.
These offers all expire on 30 April 2018. The promo terms & conditions state that the bonus points or status credits could take up to 4 weeks from the end of April to post.
If you’ve already linked your Flybuys account to Velocity Frequent Flyer, be sure to check your emails! And if you haven’t already, link your accounts now to ensure you don’t miss out on other special targeted offers in the future.
Don’t worry if you didn’t receive an offer this month. It’s widely anticipated that Velocity’s twice-yearly 15% bonus on transfers from Flybuys – and most Australian credit cards – will return in May.
Until Etihad Guest transfers return, the best use of Flybuys points is to transfer them to Velocity Frequent Flyer. There, they can be redeemed for valuable reward flights and upgrades with Virgin Australia.
