Members of the ANZ rewards are currently not able to transfer their reward points to Velocity Frequent Flyer program, though ANZ has promised that users will be allowed to do so “in the not-too-distant future”.
This was after the company and other major banks in Australia postponed point transfer to Velocity Frequent Flyer from its reward card when Velocity’s parent company Virgin Australia entered administration in 2020.
But at the time, Velocity had already pressed pause on all its redemptions of reward points after it entered administration.
As the company slowly brought back nearly all of its redemption options and most of the credit card reward programs in Australia resumed enabling users to transfer points to Velocity Frequent Flyer.
However, ANZ Rewards is yet to lift the ban on the transfer of points to Frequent Flyer.
Normally, you would convert your ANZ Rewards points at a 2:1 rate to Velocity points, with a cap minimum of 2,000 ANZ points per transfer.
Note that cardholders cannot cancel their credit card during this pause before transferring the ANZ points because then the points will go with the canceled account/card after a while.
So if you are planning on canceling your card, ensure you transfer all your points before canceling.
But as you wait for ANZ to resume its point transfer to Velocity Frequent Flyer.
