Hi all! 


I'm in the fortunate situation of having more than enough Status Credits to maintain Velocity Gold this year. Can I somehow use my extra Status Credits towards requalifying for Gold next year, even though I've accrued them in my current 12 month appraisal period? Would family pooling be my best option to get some use out of them? I'm not going to be aiming for Platinum Status. 

thanks for your help!

Short answer I do believe is no.

Best way to "use" extra status credit is either family pool another member to silver or companion gold at 500 SC.

The answer is yes. Velocity has a rolling 12 month calendar (unlike qantas), where your status credits are reviewed and assessed every day for the prior 12 months. So for your next goal, as long as you hit the requirement for platinum on any date (i.e. you have hit the required  status credit amount in any 12 month window) you will go up to platinum.

He is referring to gold not platinum
