flybuys offers FREE Velocity Gold status

velocity-explore-gold

As part of the new and exciting partnership with Velocity Frequent Flyer, flybuys is sending out invitations to certain members inviting them to Explore Gold with a free 3 month Gold status.

To be eligible the flybuys member must:

  • Be a Velocity member
  • Have linked their flybuys and Velocity memberships within their flybuys account
  • Be a current Qantas Frequent Flyer Silver, Gold, Platinum, Platinum One or Chairmans Lounge member

Eligible members have just 10 days to submit their application.

This campaign reflects a similar (and very successful) status-match campaign Velocity ran back in 2011 when CEO John Borghetti made a strategic and aggressive play for Qantas’ corporate business travellers.

This may be a taste of things to come as Velocity & flybuys exploit their tie-up to take the fight to Qantas and Woolworths Rewards. There will be blood, with the likely winner being consumers who will benefit from the increased no-holds-barred competition.
