View your Status Credit Balance

Your Status Credits balance is calculated daily, based on the number of Status Credits you have earned in the previous 12 months.

For Status Credits earned through a linked flybuys membership, allow up to 2 weeks after the end of each calendar month for your Status Credits to be credited. The Velocity member linked to the flybuys household (as at the end of the calendar month) will be awarded the Status Credits.

Every Status Credit you earn is valid for 12 months, which means your Status Credit balance will not be reset to zero at your Review Date.

To view your current Status Credit balance, log in to your Velocity Account.

 

 

Upgrading and maintaining your membership tier

Upgrade to the next level of membership

We assess memberships on a daily basis, to determine whether you are eligible for a membership upgrade.

You will be automatically upgraded to the next level of membership as soon as your Status Credit and Eligible Sector balances reach the required number to upgrade. Once you upgrade to the next level of membership, you will enjoy your new benefits for a period of 12 months. 

The table shows the number of Status Credits and Eligible Sectors required to upgrade to the next level of membership:

Level of membership status credits required to upgrade eligible sectors required to upgrade
Silver 250
2
Gold 500
4
Platinum
1,000
8

Maintain your level of membership

Once you upgrade to a higher level of membership, you will have 12 months, from the day of your upgrade to your new Review Date, to achieve the required number of Status Credits and Eligible Sectors to maintain your membership.

The table shows the number of Status Credits and Eligible Sectors you need to earn within your 12 month benefit period to maintain your membership:

Level of membership status credits required to maintain eligible sectors required to maintain
Silver 200 2
Gold 400 4
Platinum
800 8

If you do not earn the required number of Status Credits or travel the required Eligible Sectors, you will move down a level of membership.

Remember, your Status Credits and Eligible Sectors are valid for 12 months from the date they are earned, so with our daily status review, you could quickly upgrade if you reach the required number of Status Credits and Eligible Sectors. Please note for Status Credits earned through a linked flybuys membership, allow up to 2 weeks after the end of each calendar month for your Status Credits to be credited.
