100,000 Velocity Points with American Express Velocity Platinum Card

100,000 Velocity Points with American Express Velocity Platinum Card

Regular spend with the card will generate 1.5 Velocity Points per $1 spent, except government bodies in Australia which will only yield 0.5 Velocity Points per $1 spent. A bonus point 1 Velocity Point per $1 spent with Virgin Australia is a nice perk for regular Virgin travellers.

I consider the card to offer fairly good value for its $375 annual fee, with the following additional features included:

  • A complimentary Virgin Australia return domestic flight each anniversary year after your first Card spend in that anniversary year
  • Two complimentary single entry passes to the domestic Virgin Australia lounge each anniversary year
  • Two complimentary single entry passes to the American Express Lounge each anniversary year at Sydney International (Kingsford Smith) Airport
  • Complimentary Domestic and International Travel Insurance

As always, the offer is only available to new card members, which includes customers that only have an existing bank-issued American Express card.
