Virgin Australia: Velocity points giveaway – Ends 26 January 2021
Velocity, the frequent flyer program of Virgin Australia is running a promotion that will distribute 20 million points to program members who download the Velocity App.
What you need to do
Download the app which is available from the Apple App store, or from Google Play.
Finally, you need to activate the offer, and you have until midnight AEST Tuesday 26 January 2021.
According to the promotion:
‘Every member is a winner at Velocity Frequent Flyer, with the loyalty program of Virgin Australia giving all members the opportunity to obtain a share in 20 million Velocity Points . . .’

I love digital, except when my phone dies, which happened to me on the last night of my recent visit to New Zealand
This is a marketing ploy obviously, to get people to download the app, and join the Velocity program. Once they have all that info, they can then start marketing flights and whatever else they want to you, not to mention send your details on to third parties.
If you, like I did, got rid of your Velocity points by swapping them with another program (Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program in my case), then this might help restore your balance.
Is it worth it? Well, what have you got to lose other than your personal details – which you might have already given away, anyway.
I’ve activated the offer.
