Introducing Archa Rewards

Since launching corporate cards we’ve known that rewards and benefits are a key factor when businesses choose how they manage spending. As a first step, we added travel cover with AIG Australia Ltd, ensuring our customers and their team members could travel with peace of mind. Today, we’ve taken another giant leap and released the rewards component of our offering: all powered by Velocity Frequent Flyer. 

Our customers have made one thing clear to us: they want to earn frequent flyer points when spending on corporate cards so that they can maximise benefits when traveling. By working closely with Velocity, we’re giving our customers exactly what they’re after: a leading corporate credit card and spend management platform, now coupled with a market-leading rewards program powered by Australia’s favourite airline.

“We’re super excited to announce this partnership and to be part of the business Velocity Points earning family” said Oliver Kidd, CEO and Founder of Archa. The ability for businesses to earn Velocity Points for their everyday spend has been one of our most heavily requested features and we’re delighted to work directly with the Velocity Frequent Flyer business team to make this a possibility. The partnership will allow Archa customers to earn Velocity Points for their business on everyday business spend, whilst also benefiting from some of the most generous Velocity Points sign-up bonuses for businesses ever seen in the space. We look forward to building further on this partnership over the coming years.”

We’re so excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Velocity Frequent Flyer to reward its customers with Velocity Points for their business when they use their Archa corporate cards to manage everyday business spending. We’re really proud to now offer one of the most attractive corporate card and rewards platforms available to Australian businesses.

Our partnership with Velocity Frequent Flyer comprises two key areas: (1) market leading sign-up bonuses and (2) ongoing earn for everyday business spend. This is designed to give businesses of all sizes the Points boost they need to start reaping the rewards from as close to day 1 as possible.

Businesses that issue an average of 20 or more cards across their team can earn up to 250,000 Velocity Points, which represents one of the most generous sign-up bonuses across any corporate or personal credit card program in Australia today. On top of that, each $1 spent on an Archa card earns businesses 1 Archa Reward Point. Every 2 Archa Reward Points can be converted to 1 Velocity Point. This allows businesses to accrue a substantial number of Velocity Points every month which they can redeem across flights, hotels and throughout the Velocity store. 

"We are thrilled to be working with Archa to bring the benefits of Velocity Points for business to their customers," said Nick Rohrlach, CEO of Velocity Frequent Flyer. "This partnership is also a significant milestone as it allows us to offer our valued business members the opportunity to earn Velocity Points for their business via a business Mastercard.”


Going forward, we’re working to expand our rewards offering to include a range of other benefits that customers are asking for. Our ambition is simple: build the best corporate card and spend management platform, and doing that means giving our customers best-in-class rewards. We’re super excited to have taken a massive step in that direction today, while also working with an extraordinary brand like Velocity Frequent Flyer.
