Get 12,500 Velocity Bonus Points for a Referral!

[We've been busy of late, so haven't had time to post.  We appreciate it if you choose to use our links to sign up for new cards!]

I had to get off a short post about the Velocity co-branded American Express card.  I covered the numerous benefits in a post not long ago.  The card also has a top spot on the left banner of my blog, because I feel it ranks among THE best Aussie card on the market right now!

Two friends of ours used our links to get a card each, since they need to go to the same Melbourne convention we are all attending later this year.  Their approvals gave them each 20,000 Velocity points, and also rewarded us with 12,500 for each approval, for a total of 25,000 points.  Without a friend's referral, the regular offer is just 15,000 for a new card, and no one gets a referral bonus!

But you can get your own referral link so that anyone you refer who signs up, will net themselves a total of 20,000 points, and you'll get the 12,500 yourself!

If you don't already have a card, use my link to get one.  Then once you've received it sign into your American Express online account to create a referral link for anyone you feel should get one also, as explained below.

Go to this web address.  American Express expects you to refer your friends via Facebook, so if you don't have an account create a free one to be eligible for this promo.  Facebook referrals are the ultimate free advertising for American Express and follows the growing trend toward social media advertising.

Scroll down the list until you find the card you have.  In this case we'll assume you already signed up using my link and now want to create your own for your friends.

Next, you'll see this screen:

NOTE: The terms say that if your friend has had another AMEX product within the previous 12 months he will not receive his full 20,000 points.  However, in practice, I found this isn't true.  But, it is a chance you'll have to take.

Next, you'll have to enter details such as:
  • Your name
  • Current Gold credit card number
  • Email 

After this step you'll be connected to your Facebook account to "share" the American Express marketing message with the promotional message with your friend.  

Then, any person you refer who signs up, and is approved, automatically rewards you with 12,500 points, and they get the full 20,000 points, and not the regular 15,000!


Use my link to net an extra 5,000 points for a new card, and then create your own link to get even more.  This is a great deal in my opinion, since even getting just 15,000 points for $99 is sweet.  To net an extra 12,500, and an extra 5,000 for your friend, is just incredible!
