For a limited time, Virgin Australia is making every economy seat on every domestic flight available for the lowest number of Velocity Points. Effectively, five million Velocity Reward Seats are now on the market without any blackout days – not even Christmas Eve.
Virgin Australia’s domestic Velocity Points Reward Seat redemptions have been broken into several distance-based zones. While short commutes like SYD-MEL and SYD-BNE require only 7,800 points (plus taxes), a flight between Melbourne and Queensland’s Gold Coast will set you back a total of 11,800 points (plus taxes).
The offer will allow Velocity members to make the most of their current points transfer promotion, which currently sees the conversion of your credit card’s own rewards points into Velocity Points; and can net you an additional 20-30% worth of points, depending on what card you’re using. On top of this, Reward Seat bookings earn you another 5-10 status credits per flight as part of an ongoing loyalty promotion.
The offer is headlined by ANZ cards – which racks up 30% more Velocity Points – while transfers from Amex will score you a 25% bonus. Other cards will scrape you 20% extra Velocity Points.
“This is a Reward Seat frenzy at a scale not seen in our history and our biggest ever Velocity consumer promotion,” says Nick Rohrlach, CEO of Velocity Frequent Flyer.
“There will be more than five million Reward Seats available from today, for Velocity members to book using their Points, which is great news for our members who are planning on travelling between now and early 2022.”
“We’re literally turning every available Economy seat across the Virgin Australia domestic network into a Reward Seat for the next 48 hours. This means we’re essentially making every Virgin Australia domestic aircraft a Points Plane.”
While the Virgin Australia Velocity Points offer is only set to cover travel from December 1st 2021 to March 31st 2022, the seats must be booked before the midnight cutoff on Tuesday, November 23rd.
