Members of Virgin Australia’s Velocity Frequent Flyer will soon earn points on bill payments made through Australia Post.
From June 6, every bill payment of $50 or more through MyPost Digital Mailbox earns 50 Velocity points – although regular bill payments made through Postbillpay aren't part of the offer.
A free service of Australia Post, MyPost Digital Mailbox allows customers to securely receive letters, documents and to pay bills from anywhere in the world, earning Velocity points at the same time.
Sweetening the deal and encouraging paperless billing, Velocity members can also earn a bonus 1,000 points when signing up for a digital mailbox from June 6 to July 6, 2014.
Telstra, AMP, Sydney Water and Brisbane City Council are among those already using the MyPost system, launched just last year.
Virgin Australia CEO John Borghetti said: “While Australia Post is one of Australia’s oldest companies, it is now leading the way with innovative self-service tools and maintains a strong affinity with its loyal customer base.
These are values that align closely with Virgin Australia as we continue to drive innovation through our loyalty program.”
Later this year, travellers will also be able to receive their monthly Velocity statements through the MyPost system.
