    Thank you!! Was checking for this almost everyday to wait for this promo. Will transfer soon.

  •  

    Will this be the best use for the Citibank points?

  •  

    bugger, just transferred my points across yesterday :(

  •  

    Do velocity points expire? No harm in transferring and not using them for awhile?

  •  

    It will come handy with my 110K points that I have been eyeing to transfer to Krysflyer. This may tempt me to transfer to velocity.

      Just did a similar transfer. Thats roughly an extra 5.7k in krisflyer (Citi>Velocity>Krisflyer) compared to a straight transfer from citi to krisflyer.

    The qualifying requirement for International Travel Insurance is to transfer 15,000 FF points in the 12 months preceding the trip booked with FF points. So if you are intending to use Velocity points for overseas travel in the future, you might want to take the timing and amount of your points transfer into consideration.

    I'm not convinced that this is worthwhile. I've compared them based on exchange of 20000 citibank points and based on redemption in each store for a $100 bunnings gift voucher. Here's my analysis.

    A $100 Bunnings voucher costs 20,900 Citibank points.
    So 20000 Citibank points is worth $95.69 in Bunnings vouchers.

    The transfer rate is 1 Velocity point for 2 Citibank points.
    So the 20000 Citibank points gets you 13000 Velocity points.

    A $100 Bunnings gift voucher costs 21800 Velocity points.
    So the 13000 Velocity points gets you $59.63 in Bunnings vouchers.

    So if you're using the points to get gift vouchers, it isn't worthwhile. Is there some other reason that people do it? Are Velocity points more suitable for flights than gift vouchers?

      Using the points for flight upgrades are considered the best value

      You're right for gift card redemptions it wont be worthwhile. Velocity points are definitely more suitable for flight redemptions. Even if you sell for cash at 1cpp, transferring to Velocity will work out better for you.

      You’re doing a double conversion which is the issue – each time you convert there’ll be a loss so if you want to get gift vouchers, get them in your starting program. There’s no need to convert on.

      You only convert if you need that destination points program e.g Velocity (for flights), or Krisflyer, and so on.

      Its also handy for those emergency flights where flights might be expensive but redeeming flights with points is fixed at a certain amount.

      Gift card redemption have the worst value.

    •  

      Points are definitely better for flight redemptions.

      For Eg Melbourne to Gold Coast one way on 1Dec cost $149 including tax or you can use 11,600 points + $21.87 tax. Hence 11,600 points is worth approx $127.13. Based on this rate, 13,000 velocity points is approx $142.47.

      It gets better when you have sufficient points to fly Business class :)

      Ummm yeah mate…

    •  

      13,000 Velocity points are worth at least $150

    Thanks . Great find.

    Silly question - when going through the transfer process, I only saw 2000 -> 1000, didn't see the extra 30%, when/where do you get to see the extra 30%?

  •  

    Thanks OP. Good deal. Just transferred a few points

  •  

    Probably stupid questions but I would like to take advantage of this deal but I don't currently have a velocity account. Would I have to make the account first before transferring?

  •  

    Do points expire if I don't end up using them for a long time?

  •  

    How long did it normally take for the transferred points to show up on Velocity?

    On my confirmation email from Citibank it says -"Thank you for your request to transfer your Points to Velocity Points. It will take 28 working days to complete the Points Transfer to Velocity".

    28 days! And will I still definitely get this 30% transfer bonus? No mention of it on the email?
    How annoying. So much for leaving the transfer to the last few days.

    Checked my velocity to see if the point were there and they weren't. Made my redemption on the 21st. Check my citibank rewards login to see the point magically back again.

    Called them and they did it over the phone. CSR said she wasn't aware of any promotions and I had to tell her the Url.

    I'd advise everyone to check their redemptions.

    May have been a bug where my citibank points went to -1. No error message nothing.

    Apparently supposed to receive an email confirmation which I did not.
