Nowadays there are so many ways to earn points and ironically, most of them aren’t from flying. Credit cards, dining & shopping portals, buying them etc, the list goes on.

On top of those listed, there are often some that are a little more crazier like buying a car for points or taking out a home loan just for the points but this may top them all.

Well now Defence Housing Australia if offering 300,000 Velocity points when purchasing a property from them.

The bonus of 300,000 Velocity points is pretty damn impressive, considering it’s much easier to get long-haul redemptions on Virgin than it is Qantas.

Terms & Conditions:

  • You have to purchase a property by the 11th of April 2017
  • You have to settle by the 30th of June 2017
  • You must be a Velocity Frequent Flyer member, if not sign up here
  • Velocity points will be credited to your account 14 days after payment has been processed

How Should I Use The Velocity Points?

Fantastic question. Velocity points are quite useful in most areas but especially in upgrades and long-haul awards.

My favourite way to use Velocity points is on the long-haul services to and from Los Angeles. The awesome part about Velocity is that as soon as it’s 48 hours from departure seats are almost guaranteed to open up. If you want to learn how and when to book the seats click here.

Keep in mind there are services from Sydney, Melbourne (In 2 days time) and Brisbane.

Now possibly the best feature of the Velocity program is the ability to transfer points to Singapore Airlines Krisflyer. Sadly, the transfer rates isn’t 1:1, it’s 1.35 Velocity points to 1 Krisflyer point, but transferring is instant and opens up a massive range of redemption opportunities.

You can even redeem for the fantastic Singapore Suites onboard the A380.
