2. EARNING VELOCITY POINTS

2.1    To earn Velocity Points, you must be a Velocity member and present a valid Velocity Membership Card (or use the My Card in the My 7-Eleven app as described below) when completing a transaction. Velocity membership and Velocity Points earn are subject to the Velocity membership Terms and Conditions, as amended from time to time.

2.2    Use of the My 7-Eleven app is governed by the My 7-Eleven app Terms and Conditions, as amended from time to time.

2.3    In general, Velocity members can earn Velocity Points on Eligible Purchases at 7-Eleven stores by:

  • swiping their physical Velocity Membership Card or scanning a My Velocity Digital Card - this feature is currently only available in stores located in Western Australia, or
  • scanning their My Card through the My 7-Eleven app that is linked to a Velocity Membership Account,

in each case, before completing payment for the same transaction.

2.4    7-Eleven customers who are not Velocity members can earn Velocity Points by joining the Velocity Frequent Flyer program and successfully linking their Velocity Membership Account in the ‘Settings’ tab of the app or alternatively (currently only in Western Australia) use their My Velocity Digital Card accessible via the Velocity Frequent Flyer or Virgin Australia app before completing an Eligible Purchase.  Details on how to link the accounts are available at www.7eleven.com.au/velocity

  • 2 Velocity Points per 1 litre of Premium Fuel; and
  • 1 Velocity Point per 1 litre of Regular Fuel.

2.6    The exact number of Points to be awarded to the Member’s account will be calculated after excluding any products or services which form part of a transaction which are not Eligible Purchases.  Fractions of Velocity Points will not be allocated. The total Points awarded on completion of a transaction will be calculated by applying the relevant Points earn rate to the actual number of litres of fuel purchased and the purchase price paid for in-store Eligible Purchases, before rounding the combined Points up to a whole number.

2.7    Velocity members should allow up to 24 hours for Velocity Points to appear in their Velocity Membership Account following an Eligible Purchase.

2.8    No retrospective claims for Velocity Points will be accepted at any time, even in instances where the claim arises out of technology malfunctions.

2.9    If an Eligible Purchase is made and later returned or exchanged, the Velocity Points earned for that purchase may be deducted from your Velocity account.

2.10     It is recommended that you, and your nominated recipients of Velocity Points, seek independent advice from your/their accountant or tax adviser so that any potential tax implications or liabilities, such as fringe benefits tax or income tax, that may arise from the earning and/or redemption of Velocity Points are understood. Any tax implications arising for you or your nominated recipients of Velocity Points are your and/or their sole responsibility and 7-Eleven and Velocity will not be responsible or liable for any taxes as a result of issue, receipt or redemption of Velocity Points.
