Australian pioneers of 24/7 no lock-in contract gym concept Jetts celebrates an Australian-first partnership with Velocity Frequent Flyer
In a week of big announcements for the brand, leading 24/7 fitness group, Jetts, has revealed a three year partnership with Velocity Frequent Flyer, the award-winning loyalty program of Virgin Australia.
The Australian-first partnership sees Jetts become Velocity’s first official fitness partner enabling members to earn Points with Jetts Fitness.
Benefits will include the ability to earn two points for every dollar spent on Jetts’ membership payments and one-off club access fee. Additionally, Jetts members who visit a Jetts gym five or more times each month will earn 60 bonus Velocity Points.
The partnership will also generate the largest Velocity Frequent Flyer Points earn opportunity currently available. As part of the launch, Velocity Platinum, Gold or Silver members who purchase a Jetts Franchise will earn 500,000 bonus Points.
Jetts CEO Martin Oliver said the decision to partner with Velocity is the result of 12 months of planning and discussions.
“We want to put our members’ needs first to ensure they continue to get the most out of their membership. By partnering with a leading Australian loyalty program like Velocity Frequent Flyer, we can ensure Jetts members’ experience continues to be nothing but rewarding,” said Mr Oliver.
Velocity Frequent Flyer General Manager, Sid Gokani said: “This Australian-first partnership is another example of the program’s ongoing quest to add meaningful partners and reward its members on everyday spend.
“At Velocity, we are proud to provide members with an extensive portfolio of partners across a range of categories, and from today, this will include our first fitness partner. We recognise the importance of health and well-being to our members and we are thrilled to welcome Jetts to the program, offering the ability to earn while you burn so to speak,” said Mr Gokani.
Velocity Frequent Flyer members interested in joining Jetts, during the launch offer period from 13 October to 30 November 2014, new Jetts members will receive 3,500 bonus Points when purchasing an Annual Membership, or 750 bonus Points on their first Freedom direct debit payment.
Points can also be redeemed for a one month membership and an advance 12 month membership on the Velocity Online Rewards Store.
The Velocity partnership further solidifies Jetts position as the number one fitness chain in Australia for customer satisfaction and Australia’s leading 24/7 fitness group.
Jetts currently operates over 250 clubs across Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.
