IN BRIEF | Virgin Australia is running another double status credits promotion that'll help travellers fast-track their way to Gold or Platinum status or retain their current status for the next 12 months.
But there's a catch: the offer is open only to selected Velocity members who receive an invitation email from the airline.
The email's gone to many AusBT readers who are Gold and Platinum, but several others report a 'no show' as yet.
However, some emails are still being received by Velocity members so this is clearly a progressive rollout of the offer – so keep an eye on your inbox!
If you're among the fortunate frequent flyers then you'll earn twice the usual number of status credits for travel booked and flown from March 27 to June 30.
Don't forget that you can also score a 15% point bonus if you transfer bank reward points from your credit or charge card into your Velocity Frequent Flyer account before March 31.
