25% Velocity points bonus when you transfer your reward points

24 October 2008

I think this is a pretty good offer to consider if you currently have a rewards program with:
* American Express® Membership Rewards
* ANZ Rewards Visa
* Commonwealth Awards
* Westpac Altitude Rewards

The offer is not, of course, without some terms and conditions, which I have listed below.
One to watch our for is this: "Relevant Card Partner rewards program enrolment required (an annual fee may apply)"
Now there is a not a lot of info given about this clause and I am suspecting they are referring to the rewards programs listed above as the velocity program is free.

I think you may need to contact your actual rewards program to find out any hidden details

    Above are the terms and conditions. One other thing to consider if what the the conversion rate is for the reward points given in each program. Some may be better than others. Sorry - something I am not sure about

    Never been a big fan of reward program transfers. Direct earning all the way! :thumbsup:

    I see them as an incidental reward :D If you use your CC a lot and it is attached to one of the programs then you can get some decent points.

    But better value and much easier if it's all done automatically. :)

What do you think?
