Bank of America reintroduced the Virgin Atlantic credit card as a Mastercard in August, but only had a sign-up bonus of 25,000 miles.
I suggested waiting until the 50,000 mile offer came back. And the 50,000 mile offer is back!
This is marketed as a 65,000 mile offer, but it really is only for 50,000 miles.

1. 25,000 Mile Virgin Atlantic
Bank of America used to issue a Virgin Atlantic card (no longer available) under a license from American Express card with a 50,000 mile sign-up bonus after spending $2,500 in 3 months and adding 2 authorized users. You can transfer Virgin Atlantic miles to Hilton hotel points in a 1:2 ratio, so this was one of the best ways to earn Hilton points.
Virgin Atlantic also reduced the fuel surcharges on coach awards, so it could be worth using Virgin Atlantic miles for coach flights to London. You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards to Virgin Atlantic, but I prefer saving my Ultimate Rewards points for United, Hyatt, and Southwest.

There have been updates to miles and points credit cards in the past weeks, so I thought I’d summarize them in a separate post. I’ve updated the Airlines, Hotels and Bank Points credit card tabs with these changes.
