To celebrate Virgin America’s 9th anniversary, the airline is offering a bonus of 999 Virgin America points after you register for the promotion, book any paid flight, and travel by September 30, 2016.
The bonus points are worth ~$21. So it’s probably not worth changing flight plans to get the bonus. But if you’re already planning to fly Virgin America this summer, it only takes a few seconds to enroll in the promotion.
I’ll share more details about the offer!
What’s the Deal?
To earn the Virgin America bonus points, you’ll need to:
- Be enrolled in Virgin America’s frequent flyer program (free to sign-up)
- Register for the promotion before taking your flight
- Book any paid Virgin America flights and travel by September 30, 2016
- Award flights are NOT eligible
You will not earn the bonus points for any flights booked before August 8, 2016.
The bonus points are great. But they’re not worth booking a flight unless you already have travel plans.
Virgin America often has cheap one-way flights. For example, I found a one-way flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for $39.
So you’d have to spend $39 to earn the bonus points, which are worth ~$21.
Earn More Virgin America Points
Or you can earn the sign-up bonus from the Virgin America Signature Card or the Virgin America Premium Signature Card. We don’t earn a commission from the Virgin America cards, but we’ll always tell you about the best deals!
So I don’t recommend getting your Virgin America points this way, unless you just need a few more point to top-off your account for an award.
