8 surprising ways you can earn Velocity Points

Wondering how you can earn Velocity Points without booking a flight? Whether you’re a Points junkie, or you’re just beginning your Velocity journey, here are 9 super simple ways to boost your Velocity Points balance.*


1. Buy your groceries.

Thanks to our partnership with flybuys you can transfer your flybuys points in multiples of 2,000 for 870 Velocity Points. That’s up to 138,000 flybuys points per calendar year per household (equivalent to 60,030 Velocity Points)*. Which means you can grocery shop your way to your next reward! Bonus tip: You can also earn 1 Status Credit for every $100 spent, up to 10 per month*. Velocity Status Credits help you to reach or maintain a higher level of Velocity membership giving you access to the best of Virgin Australia’s premium products and services.

2. Dine out.

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? With OpenTable you can choose from hundreds of restaurants, and reserve a table in minutes. Not only will you get instant confirmation, you’ll earn 300 Velocity Points for every honoured booking. Bonus tip: Don’t want to leave the house? Get dinner delivered with Menulog via the Velocity eStore and earn 2 Velocity Points per $1 spent.

3. Work out.

Get a more satisfying workout with Jetts Fitness! You’ll be rewarded when you join through Velocity and will receive 2 Velocity Points per $1 spent on your ongoing membership, as well as 60 bonus Velocity Points if you make 5 or more visits to any Jetts gym in a month. If you ever needed more motivation to exercise, this is definitely it.

4. Pay your bills.

Let’s face it – bills are a part of life. So why not use them to earn Velocity Points? Sign up to Australia Post’s MyPost Digital Mailbox (it’s simple and free); add your service providers and you’ll be rewarded with 50 Velocity Points every time you pay a bill to the value of $50 or more.

5. Tick something off your bucket list.
