Do I get Velocity status credits by redeeming Virgin travel vouchers?

Hi there

Does anybody know if I redeemed velocity points for Virgin Travel vouchers and then booked flights using these vouchers if I would collect status credits on the fights ?

I know we do not collect points or status credits if we redeem the flight’s via the velocity website but I’m wondering if this is a work around ?

Yes, gift vouchers are just a payment method, and allow you to book whatever class of airfare you desire. So if you book a points-earning fare, but pay with a gift voucher, you’d earn points. Whether this is a good deal or not though depends on the fare, points redeemed for the voucher, and how much you value / need those status credits.
