Who should get AMEX Velocity Gold?

Are you considering the AMEX Velocity Gold card? They are currently offering 20,000 bonus points for those that sign up, so we ask, who are the people who would find this offer most attractive?

  • If you fly Virgin a lot The Velocity Gold card gives you 2.5 velocity points for every dollar spent with Virgin
  • If you fly Virgin at all You will also receive two complimentary entries into the Virgin Lounge which have recently been upgraded in Brisbane and Melbourne. These are normally worth $35 per entry but apparently you need to be flying Virgin to get into the lounge so no point getting this card if you won't be flying Virgin this year. 
  • If you fly at all The card also comes with free travel insurance when you purchase your tickets using this credit card, for international and domestic flights.
Is there a similar AMEX offer?
If you don't fly much, this card isn't worth the annual fee of $199 as there are plenty of other credit cards that offer rewards points for less. If you are interested in getting an AMEX card, perhaps the AMEX Platinum Edge which is only $149 per year would be better. This card also comes with a free return domestic flight on Virgin Australia.
