~30% off most Virgin Australia reward flights in all classes[Migage]

Source

This is not yet announced, but currently most reward seats for Virgin Australia-operated flights are at a discount of up to ~30% off on their website.

Includes Economy, Premium Economy and Business class on most routes operated by Virgin Australia themselves.

Seems to be most dates from March until the end of the year. Some routes may be excluded. Eligible reward flights will have a 'promo tag' (red ribbon) above their pricing.

A small tax component (usually $15 to $100 depending on flight) applies to each one-way segment. A ~1.5% credit card fee applies to these payments.

Example routes:

Flight Length Class of travel Normal points cost Sale points cost
Short (e.g. SYD-MEL) Economy 7,800 5,400
Short (e.g. MEL-HBA) Business 15,500 10,800
Medium (e.g. PER-SYD) Economy 17,800 12,400
Medium (e.g. BNE-PER) Business 35,500 24,800
Long (e.g. MEL-LAX) Economy 54,800 31,300
Long (e.g. LAX-MEL) Business 111,500 95,500

My personal sweet spot is Perth to East Coast in Business class for 24,800 points. It's a substantial saving over the normal cost, and if you're on an A330, you'll get an exceptional experience.

There is also good availability domestically over the Christmas travel period. My friends traveling from Perth to Launceston economy return redeemed just 24,800 points for flights which are already at $740 cash. $0.029 value per point is pretty good.

This deal has been 'active' since the start of Monday, 12 February, and that's when I made all my bookings.

Velocity confirmed yesterday that this sale is legit and will be officially announced soon.

Post will be updated with more details when available. Happy travels.
