Virgin Australia has revised the rates at which its Velocity members earn frequent flyer points, with all partners now offering at least two Velocity points per dollar spent.
It's especially good news for eBay shoppers, as earlier this month the online auction site's earn rate was just one point per dollar.
But other favourites such as online florist Roses Only and web hosting company Go Daddy are no longer part of the Velocity program – quite a shame, especially when Go Daddy was previously worth a massive 14 points per dollar.
Other anchor partners such as Dell, the Apple Store and iTunes remain on the roster, with each offering the same earning rates.
The changes have been revealed in Virgin's overnight refresh of its Velocity Global eStore, which now sports a cleaner design which also makes it easier to keep track of your most recent spending.
Virgin's Global eStore allows Velocity members to earn points when shopping with a number of online partners, and unlike most other frequent flyer stores it doesn’t require you to enter your Velocity number on a partner's website.
Of course, it pays to keep an eye on your transaction history and submit a manual points claim (if necessary), as there are certainly times when everything doesn't go according to plan.
