Status gift and year-long extension for our Platinum, Gold and Silver members
What we are doing for our members
Status Extension and Preservation We'll be extending and preserving the current Status of all Velocity Frequent Flyer Platinum, Gold, and Silver members for a further 12 months. If you were a Platinum, Gold or Silver Status member between 4 March 2020 and 29 March 2020, you’ll receive a 12-month extension to your benefit period, starting from your Review Date (your Review Date is the last day of your Benefit Period). E.g. If you had a Benefit Period end date of 25 April 2020 we’ll be extending it to 25 April 2021.1
If you were a Platinum, Gold or Silver Status member and you downgraded between 4 March 2020 and 29 March 2020, you’ll have had your previous Status reinstated for a further 12 months.1
Once your complimentary year of Status begins, you’ll automatically receive a further 12 months of your current Status and the Review Date that appears on My Velocity and the Velocity Frequent Flyer App will be updated.
Any remaining but unused Status membership benefits associated with your Velocity account as at 29 March 2020 can be used up until your Review Date. Any unused benefits from your Benefit Period as at 29 March 2020 will expire on your Review Date as outlined in the membership Terms and Conditions. When the extension or preservation is applied you will receive a new set of Silver, Gold or Platinum benefits in accordance with the membership Terms and Conditions.
