2,500 Velocity points when you open a Virgin Money Go and Boost Saver account and make one purchase

Open a Virgin Money Go transaction account bundled with a Boost Saver account and you’ll earn 5,000 bonus Virgin Money points after you make your first debit card purchase, direct debit or BPAY payment in the first 30 days.

Virgin Money points can now be transferred to Velocity Frequent Flyer at a rate of 2:1, allowing you to instantly convert your 5,000 Virgin Money points to 2,500 Velocity points.

Alternatively, you can redeem the 5,000 points for $22.50 in cashback or convert them to Marriott Bonvoy or United Airlines MileagePlus at a rate of 2:1 and 3:1, respectively.

The Virgin Money Go account allows you to earn 8 Virgin Money points on every transaction (not per dollar, per transaction) and you can also receive bonus points when spending with selected partners.

Whilst only new customers can receive the 5,000 points joining bonus, existing customers can earn 5,000 points for themselves every time someone signs up using their code and meets the welcome offer criteria (maximum of 5 referrals per month).

You won’t earn any extra points by signing up via a referral but if you’d like to anyway, you can use my referral link or enter the code H597HH when joining.

  1. Thanks for this! Is there a way to retrospectively add a referral code? There wasn’t a field on the application but after visiting your site for more info – realised I should’ve used your link instead!!


    1. Thank you for the offer but I don’t believe you can add them retroactively. In any case, I’m quite sure I’ve used up my five referrals for this month.


  2. How long did it take for your points to be credited folks? My first transaction had been pending for a few days but has come good now – but no points (not even base points).


    1. They say the points can take up to five business days to arrive so I’d give it a week before messaging them in the app.


  3. How long till the bonus points hit the account? I have made the spend criteria and it has all gone through.


    1. If you don’t receive them after five business days then you can send them a message from within the app.
