Most Citibank customers can convert their Citi Rewards credit card points into Virgin Australia Velocity frequent flyer points to use towards free flights or even upgrades to premium economy and business class.

But as to how many Velocity Frequent Flyer points you’ll get in exchange for your Citi Rewards balance, that depends on which Citibank credit card you have in your wallet.

Customers with Citi Prestige, Citi Signature and CitiBusiness Gold cards can convert their points across on a 2:1 basis – so for every two Citi Rewards points you have, you’ll get one Velocity point.

The conversion rate is less-generous for Citi Platinum and Citi Gold cardholders who may instead ship their points across at a 2.5:1 rate.

Whichever rate applies to you, points transfers can be requested after logging in to the Citi Rewards website. Just scroll through the list until you see Velocity Frequent Flyer and click ‘transfer points’:

Then it’s as simple as keying in how many points you’d like to ship across and confirming your Velocity membership number.

A minimum transfer amount of 20,000 Citi Rewards points applies to Citi Prestige, Citi Signature and CitiBusiness Gold cardholders, while a higher minimum transfer of 25,000 Citi Rewards points is enforced for Citi Platinum and Citi Gold customers.

There’s no upper limit to how many points you can convert across or how many times you can make those transfers, provided that each conversion meets the relevant minimum threshold.
