Up to 40% bonus on transfers to Velocity Frequent Flyer throughout May 2018

Velocity Frequent Flyer has strengthened its regular May transfer bonus by giving members up to 40% in bonus points throughout May 2018 on transfers from some credit card programs and 20% on hotel program transfers.

Credit card transfers

Unlike the flat 15% in past years, this year the bonus on qualifying credit card transfers is based on the amount of points being transferred, with transfers under 100k points receiving 15% and over 750k points receiving the full 40%.

The following credit card providers are participating:

  • Australian American Express Card Members, including David Jones American Express Card Members enrolled in the Membership Rewards program (this offer excludes American Express New Zealand Card Members)
  • NAB Rewards
  • Citibank
  • HSBC Rewards (Platinum and Premier credit card holders only)
  • Diners Club Reward
  • Card Services Rewards
  • Bank of Queensland and Q Rewards (Platinum credit card holders only)
  • Suncorp Bank Rewards

Hotel program transfers

Hotel program transfers get a boost this year as well with a flat 20% bonus applied throughout May 2018. This also applies to ANZ card transfers and flybuys:

  • ANZ Rewards
  • ANZ Business Rewards
  • flybuys
  • Shangri-La
  • Accor hotels
  • Hilton
  • SPG Starwood
  • IHG
  • Choice hotels

This is one of the best Velocity transfer bonus’ we’ve seen recently and hence I would recommend taking advantage if you are considering a Velocity redemption in the near future. Obviously you lose flexibility once the points are in Velocity so keep this in mind if your card offers transfers to other airlines.
