Just a heads up that the 15% velocity bonus is on again, in case anyone is sitting on the motherlode of flybuys.

Bonus is applicable on a wide ranger of partners, including most credit cards, Hotel Loyalty Points & Flybuys ofcourse. Can anyone with AmeX Platinum please advise if their bonus is 15% or higher?

With AMEX, it's 15% across all Membership Rewards cards. No extra bonus for Platinum or Centurion this time.

Interesting, perhaps a targeted offer... only showing as 15% in Velocity's calculator (even when choosing Plat/Cent as the product).
Seems it is indeed 20% for AMEX Platinum & Centurion (Ascent Premium) - but there's also an offer of free Velocity Gold or Platinum status if you send enough points across! https://www.ausbt.com.au/american-express-offers-instant-velocity-gold-platinum-status

There must be a lot of really annoyed loyal Velocity members out there, myself included, that made sure they transferred their hard earned points by the deadline Nov 30 to qualify for the 15% bonus only to find out the very next day Velocity announce an even better offer ! From 1st to 10th Dec up to 30% bonus on all card transfers.
