Virgin Australia Velocity Credit Cards
Virgin Australia has two credit cards that earn Velocity Points, both offered by American Express. If you're looking to earn a solid amount of points across your purchases, both cards are great options.
Earning Velocity Points with AU Credit Cards
Outside of using the two Velocity credit cards that Virgin Australia offers through American Express, you can also earn Velocity Points by using credit cards offered by transfer partners. This means you can use transfer partner credit cards to build up points and then transfer those earned points directly to your Velocity account. This provides a great alternative to building points and opens up a bunch of additional opportunities to earn points across other popular bonus categories.
Velocity has 15 transfer partners which are:
- American Express Membership Rewards (2:1)
- Amplify Rewards (2:1)
- ANZ Rewards (2:1)
- BOQ Q Rewards (3:1)
- Citi Rewards (2:1 or 2.5:1)
- NAB Rewards (2:1)
- Westpac Altitude Rewards (3:1)
- Singapore Airlines (1.55:1)
- ALL Accor Live Limitless (1:1)
- Choice Privileges (20:3)
- Hilton Honors (10:1.5)
- IHG Rewards Club (5:1)
- Shangri-La Golden Circle (1:1)
Several of these partners offer credit cards that you can use to build points transferable to Velocity. If you want to maximize your rewards, I recommend checking out each transfer partner to see if they have credit cards that would fit your spending and if they offer benefits that cater to what you want in a rewards card.
