News You Can Use – AMEX Transfer Bonus, 0% Plastiq Fees Ending, 300 Free La Quinta Points, $20 Off at UnderArmour

When you transfer 80,000 American Express Membership Rewards points to Virgin America anytime through December 31, 2015, you’ll earn Virgin America Gold status.

You do NOT have to transfer the 80,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points all at once to qualify.

Your Gold membership will be good through February 2017!

With Virgin America Gold status you get perks like:

  • Free Express seats (sit up front and get off the plane quickly)

  • Priority check-in and boarding

With Gold Status, You Can Kick Back and Have a Drink in the Virgin America Loft While You Wait for Your Flight

Plus, you’ll get a 25% bonus on AMEX Membership Rewards points you transfer to Virgin America through October 8, 2015.

However, this isn’t a great deal for most folks.  That’s because even with the transfer bonus, you don’t get a favorable transfer ratio.  On top of that, you’ll have to pay a fee on the points you transfer.

For example, when you transfer 80,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points you’ll pay a $48 fee and only get 50,000 Virgin America points.

That said, Virgin America has good deals on inter-Hawaii flights, and this is a nice deal for folks who already book a lot of paid flights on Virgin America.

See my series on Virgin America points for more ideas on how you can use the points.
