VIRGIN AUSTRALIA: Last Chance for Double Status Credits!

VIRGIN AUSTRALIA: Last Chance for Double Status Credits!

You have just one day to take advantage of this Double Status Credits promotion before midnight (AEST) on Thursday, 3 August, 2023.

You need to already be a member of the Virgin Australia Velocity Frequent Flyer program or sign up for it.

If you are already a member, log in, navigate to the My Offers page, and look for the ‘Bonus Status Credits’ offer. You need to press that ‘Activate’ button before you start booking

On your phone

I’m old school and would take advantage of this offer via my computer. If you are more modern than me – you will probably access it on your phone via the Velocity App. Head for ‘Offers’ and select the Bonus Status Credits tab.

Eligible flights to earn Double Status Credits

You need to book a flight on Virgin Australia metal, not another airline. But it can be domestic, across the ditch to New Zealand, or short-haul international like Bali or Japan. You can also book flights that depart until 31 December 2023 – nearly six months away.

Fast-track your Velocity status.

Suppose you are heading to Gold or Platinum. In that case, this promotion is particularly valuable, as those status levels give you free access to the Virgin Australia lounges as well as other benefits.

Velocity status levels are low compared to Qantas. 250 status credits get you Silver, 500 for Gold, and 1,000 for Platinum, all earned in 12 months.

Fine Print for Double Status Credits promotion

Just remember there are some exclusions, but they are to be expected:

  • Current bookings – those you made before the offer don’t count
  • Points redemption flights don’t qualify
  • Flights travelling on partner airlines such as ANA, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines and United don’t qualify either.

2PAXfly Takeout

I’ve decided to give this a miss myself. That’s mainly for budgetary reasons and because I have a credit card that gets me into the Virgin Lounges – a benefit I value. I will miss the other perks of being Gold, but c’est la vie.
