Rewards Credit Card

November 24th, 2016 at 09:12 am

I got my Virgin credit card statement today and was happy to see that for the last month I've been using it regularly and repaying it regularly and no interest was charged this time. After the balance transfer was repaid a couple of months ago I used it pretty much straight away and interest got charged so I held off on using it, now I'm glad to see that interest is not being charged just the way it should be.

Apparently I now have 602 velocity points. These can be used towards Virgin Airways flights or redeemed for gift cards. I looked up points to redeem gift cards, for 9000 points you can get a $50 shopping gift card.

When I get a spare second (like after the exam), I will look into ways to boost points. Four days of studying to go, hopefully I can remember everything.

Oh I have 6 NSDs now and I know tomorrow will be a NSD (unless an unforeseen and unavoidable emergency happens).

I don't know when your thanksgiving is but I am reading posts about it, so I hope you all have a safe and happy thanksgiving!

    Thank you! In the U.S., Thanksgiving is today; it's always on the last Thursday in November.

    I should say the fourth Thursday in November.

    Two tips I'm aware of; one where time is of the essence Smile
    Til 30 November, you get a 15% bonus on transferring flybuys points to velocity.

    Check velocity's estore before buying anything online - 2 pts/$ if you go via there to a site you were visiting anyway! Plus, some bonus offers.
    https :// estore.velocityfrequentflyer .com (remove spaces).

    Good luck with your study 👍

    Thanks for your well wishes everybody! And thanks for your tips Bluesfemme - I'm not fussed about the Flybuys because while I have a card I use it only very rarely, I'm pretty sure those points would have expired. I will definitely look into the Velocity estore though! I may link up Flybuys to Velocity and start using it though depending on what you can get when you spend at Coles compared to the Safeway rewards program.
