For a limited time, Bank of America has increased the sign-up bonus on the Virgin Atlantic card to 70,000 miles. Plus, you’ll get 5,000 more miles for adding 2 authorized users to your account.
Even though it’s marketed as a 90,000 mile card, you’ll only get the last 15,000 miles on your card anniversary, and only if you spend a lot. So this is really a 75,000 mile offer!
And you’ll have to spend $12,000 in the 1st 6 months to get the full bonus. But there are lots of ways to do that!
You’ll Get up to 90,000 Miles With the Increased Virgin Atlantic Sign-Up Bonus
Is it worth meeting such a high minimum spending requirement for this card? Let’s find out.
Million Mile Secrets reader Bryce comments:
I’m wondering about eligibility to get sign-up bonuses again. If I had a credit card, used it, got the bonus, and canceled the card, is there a possibility to apply for the card again and get the sign-up bonus again?
If so is there a time period you have to wait to apply and get the bonus again?
This is 1 of the most common questions asked by Million Mile Secrets readers. If you’ve had a credit card in the past, can you re-apply and get the sign-up bonus a 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th…) time?
Thank You, Come Again! Which Cards Let You Get the Sign-Up Bonus More Than Once?
I wrote several years ago that getting the bonus again depends on the bank that issues the card. And that’s still true, but the rules have changed!
The US credit card market is saturated, so banks offer large sign-up bonuses to get you to apply for their cards. And they hope that you’ll use their cards even after getting the sign-up bonus!
Do you dislike paying checked bag fees as much as I do?
Many airlines charge a $25 fee for your 1st checked bag when you fly coach between the US, Canada, Mexico, and certain Caribbean islands.
(Although my favorite airline for inexpensive domestic travel, Southwest, gives you 2 free checked bags!)
Here’s a List of Cards That Will Let You Check Your Bag for Free!
That’s $25 each way, so if you’re traveling with a companion you could have to pay $100 extra for a round-trip flight (Business and First Class passengers usually don’t have to pay this fee, along with some airline elite status members). And if you travel frequently these fees can really add up!
Luckily there are credit cards that will give you your 1st checked bag for free!
