Thanks to everyone for your support over the years! To show our gratitude, Emily and I are giving away 4,000 Virgin America points!
I’ll show you how to enter!
You can convert your Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines at a ratio of 1:1.3! But you will NOT be able to transfer your points back if you change your mind!
And, you can book Virgin America flights through the Alaska Airlines website!
Virgin America and Alaska Airlines have different methods for pricing their award seats.
Virgin America prices according to the cash price of the ticket. So the value of Virgin America points depends which Virgin America flight you choose. But you’ll usually get a value of ~2.15 cents per point.
Alaska Airlines prices award seats according to zones. The price of the ticket does NOT affect the amount of miles you’ll pay.
So you can examine both award prices and decide which program will give you the best return for your points! If you’re purchasing an expensive ticket (last-minute fare or First Class seat.), you’ll probably get a better value by transferring your Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines.
And if you enter this contest, you’ll have a chance to win 4,000 Virgin America points!
