      It is all determined by your Ozbargain K:D average.

      Velocity will allocate an even distribution of the 20 Million Points between Velocity members who have successfully participated in the Promotion. There is a limit of one share per Velocity member. No part Points will be awarded. If the number of Points awarded is a decimal, the Points awarded will be rounded up to the next whole number.

          Game theory :) If I didn't post it, you wouldn't have the chance, so you'd potentially get 0. But by posting, you have a chance and > 0. So on basis of you not knowing about it, it's better for you for me to post it.

              @jv: Being appreciated by the ozbargain community is worth more than 20,000,000 velocity points.

    Nice, thank you! New C-suite members announced today, will be interesting to see how they hold up in the coming months.

  • +16 votes

    So I guess we'll all be getting roughly 170 points if the 10 million points giveaway was anything to go by …

    •  

      $1.36 value if 1 point = $0.008

      Deliberating whether I should be bribed to get the app at this price.

      • +3 votes

        I could be bribed for less points than that.

      •  

        What can we buy with that? ;-)

    •  

      That was back when people were still flying places and collecting Velocity points.

  • +1 vote

    Done. Looking forward to getting my 10 points about a month from now.

  •  

    Excellent! Last time I think we got like 127 points each or something. Woo.

  • +3 votes

    Thanks OP! This is great to extend the life of my points. I was worried about the expiry of my points as haven’t used Velocity for a while.

    •  

      You really should cash them in before they get devalued again.

      •  

        I thought about this as we have a few thousand dollars worths of points from our home loan. But cashing out in gift cards seems such poor way of using the points. Really not sure what to do!

        •  

          Free money is not poor value! I only ever accumulate QFF or Velocity points for free, so I guess my view is a little different to others that have paid fees and what not to get the points.

      • +3 votes

        When did they get devalued? Reward flights seem to be the same price as prior to Covid or is it the dollar to points value?

    •  

      Can anyone confirm this would be the case?

      i also am about 12 months into the period of earning 'no points' so would be great if getting 100 odd points as part of this reset the clock

      •  

        transfer from flybuys to velocity would do the trick too.

  • +7 votes

    Not working for me? I'm getting "This offer is not available in the app"…

    •  

      same, I tried logging out and logging in again and still doesn't work, guess it must be Ozbargained atm.

      •  

        Keep trying. It took a few goes. System must be having a coronary from all the ozbargainer registrations!

      It worked for me and my 18yo daughter. Not for my 16yo or 12yo though.

      • +9 votes

        To participate in the Promotion, you must be a Velocity member, 18 years or older

    •  

      I had this issue to. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and logged in, the offer was there and was able to be activated without issue.

      1. Close app
      2. Go to app settings and force stop
      3. In app settings: clear the cache + stored login.
      4. Update to latest version of the app if you haven't already.
      5. Launch app and login, there should be a full screen ad on the promo to greet you.

    Many CC promos are usually from Qantas. It's hard to find decent Velocity ones.

      Hard to offer a deal for something that was in administration.

    •  

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/597816

      This one, very good deal if you are not holding or have not held AMEX card for the past 18 months.

      •  

        Tempted by that and now that Air Canada has come on board could be very lucrative later on.

      •  

        Very nice! Thank you!

    Stop everyone. Don’t download the app. Allow me to test it out

  •  

    Happened last time, got something like 70 points out of it.

    •  

      I got 86 points out of the 10M last time round 😁

  •  

    they took away christmas and cocos keeling islands :(

    •  

      really? if i could have made the timing work, they were the only places I were keen to go.

      •  

        yep had it booked for october last year, who the hell would pay $1500 return other than a desperate local.

  •  

    edit: Just saw that you have to be over 18 to claim the offer, thanks @muncan.

    Pretty stupid idea, kids fly too.

    •  

      Probably due to it being a 'givaway' or 'promotion' and legislation prevents them from entering children.

      I'm sure they'd allow kids if they could.

    Hmm. Didn't work for me, an error popped up stating "Sorry this offer is not available in the app".

    •  

      same for me.

    • +1 vote

      Same, but clearing the app cache/data and logging in again worked fine.

      •  

        this works - thanks!

      •  

        Thanks this fixed it for me too!

    •  

      I uninstalled/reinstalled the app. Then it worked

    • +1 vote

      Thanks that worked for me too.

      I get the feeling the error may be related to accounts for under 18s (e.g. if you're part of a family sharing group or something). Because it worked for me and the missus, but then when I logged in as my kid then I got the error again.

      • +2 votes

        Yes same error for my child.
        Then I found out the T&C says offer only for > 18 y.o.
        App's not smart enough to use a more specific error msg.

    has anyone been able to install the app on an emulator? I can't get it to work on Bluestacks.

    Got 86 points from the last giveaway.

    • +2 votes

      Me too - 86 points from the Oct 19 giveaway worth 10M. That's 116k entrants.

      • +1 vote

        Hopefully we'll get 182 points this time with the 20M giveaway.

  •  

    A tiny step towards my 1 millon point target.

  •  

    Not seeing the offer on iOS. Deleted and reinstalled the app too.

  •  

    So value the pts at .5 cent = $100,000 total .
    Probably will get less than $2 assuming 50k+ members = waste of time for the effort `^ing around .

      Sir, this is an Ozbargain

  •  

    For anyone else who can't get this offer to load on their Velocity App:

    1. Close app
    2. Go to app settings and force stop
    3. In app settings: clear the cache + stored login.
    4. Update to latest version of the app if you haven't already.

    Doesn't work for me on iOS - tried to logout / uninstall & install again - no dice :(

    •  

      Does iOS have an equivalent of deleting app data without deleting the app? Sometimes reinstalling the app won't clear the app data, so you have to do that (first).

      •  

        Not that I know of… but when I delete the app I got a message informing all data will also be deleted.

        Perhaps the iOS app has not been updated yet?

    •  

      Same boat. Let me know if you have any luck

  •  

    Worked fine for me on Android -
    1 install app
    2 login
    3 activate offer
    4 uninstall app
    5 profit??

  •  

    Thanks OP. Activated.

  •  

    @Orpheon Thanks for the steps

    EDIT: it worked after 2nd attempt!

      The Points will be credited to the Member’s Velocity account by 28 February 2021, however, Velocity reserves the right to extend this timeframe without notice.

    Got 159 points, lol. How'd you guys fare?

    •  
      •  

        Ah right, so it's evenly distributed. Thought some people could win more or something.

      •  

        wow, you were close!

    •  

      yep, 159…
