1. Check your Velocity number, then check it again
It sounds obvious, but we’re all guilty of getting a little distracted while we check our name’s spelt right on our flight booking for the umpteenth time, aren’t we?
If you’ve had a bit of a memory lapse (re. your Velocity membership number, not how to spell your name), we've got you covered.
You can download your My Velocity card to your digital wallet, or via the Velocity app (find out how in this article) so that you always have your Velocity membership number with you when you need it most.
Given you'll also need to quote your number in order to earn Points with many of our partners, it's worth downloading now to avoid a moment of memory loss induced anxiety in the future.
2. Don't forget your flybuys
You know that flybuys card sitting in your wallet? Well, link it to your Velocity membership and use it whenever you do your grocery shopping at Coles, stock up at Kmart or a bunch of other stores, and you can put any flybuys points you earn towards actual flights when you transfer them to Velocity^.
If you want to “double dip” and get rewarded with two lots of Velocity Points for a single purchase – a completely ripper idea, to be fair, simply swipe your flybuys card and use a Velocity Points-earning credit card to pay for your haul, and then transfer your flybuys points to your Velocity account to be doubly rewarded.
So, forget about giving up those avos so you can afford to buy a house. Buy them by the bucket load and let them pay for a holiday instead.
3. Velocity Points for indulging your online shopping habit
Likewise, turn your new wardrobe into your next getaway by logging onto the Velocity eStore whenever you want to do a spot of online shopping. You can earn Velocity Points at over 200 retailers on the stuff you were going to buy anyway just by navigating to the eStore first, logging in and searching for your online store there so we can track your purchase.
So, if you’re asking yourself whether that’s a legitimate reason to add a couple more pairs of jeans, tops or that new sound system you were eyeing off to your basket – yes. Yes it is.
4. The (View by Velocity) library is open
Given you've found your way here, you may already be aware that View by Velocity is your one stop shop for all the best tips and tricks to making the most of the Velocity program.
Whether you're looking for the best ways to earn Points while spoiling your pet, getting your Points balance holiday ready from the comfort of your home, or looking for a little inspiration for domestic trips right in your own backyard, there's something for everyone, at all levels of the program. We've even split the articles into four categories, The Basics, Get Points, Use Points and Frequent Flyer, so it's even easier to find what you're looking for.
And the more you know about the program, the more you can take advantage of it. Because, let's face it, reading is fundamental.
5. B-b-bonus Points
Here’s one final bonus tip for boosting your Points balance, and actually, probably one of the best. Two simple words, but a wealth of opportunity. That's right, we're talking about Special offers.
If you want to supercharge your Points earning potential, simply bookmark the Member Offers page on the Velocity website, log in regularly to your My Velocity account dashboard or download the Velocity app, and keep an eye on the latest special and targeted offers just for you (well, just for you and a select group of other Velocity members). Ka-ching!
