Virgin Money is offering double Velocity Frequent Flyer Points on settlement for eligible new home loans.
Customers who apply for a Virgin Money Reward Me Home Loan with an LVR of 90% or below will now earn 20,000 Velocity Points for every $100,000 borrowed at settlement, if they apply between 5 March and 31 May 2018 and settle by 31 August 2018.
