American Express has been offering a 30% bonus on transfers between Membership Rewards and the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club for a little under 2 months but the deal is set to expire tonight - if you need to top up your Flying Club account or want to book a great premium cabin ANA award now may be a good time to transfer some points.
Virgin Atlantic has been running a mileage sale since the beginning of the month in which the airline offering bonuses of up to 40%. This sale ends on Sunday (30 June) so you have just a few days left to makes the most of this offer and, potenially, book some amazing premium cabin awards.
Virgin Atlantic has launched a miles sale which is offering bonuses of up to 40% through 30 June 2019. Don't let your dislike of Virgin's often outrageous surcharges put you off buying miles because, if you know where to look, there's a fantastic use for Virgin Atlantic miles that offers truly great value.
Right now American Express is offering a 30% bonus when you transfer its currency (Membership Rewards) over to the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club through 1 July 2019 (no hurry!) and, if you know where to look, this can be a very good deal to jump on.
Virgin Atlantic has recently undergone a reorganization in its ownership structure which has left Delta as the owner of the largest stake (49%) and Air France/KLM as an owner as well (31%). Alongside this reorganisation, Virgin, Delta & Air France/KLM have applied to form a transatlantic joint venture (along similar lines to the joint venture already in place between a number of oneworld transatlantic airlines) and, a few weeks ago, that joint venture moved closer to reality as the European Union gave it the go ahead.
Avis and Virgin Atlantic are running a promotion in which you can earn up to 1,000 miles/day for rentals made by the end of May with maximum earnings of 10,000 miles.
Virgin Atlantic Flying Club is a transfer partner for all three of the major credit card issuers (Amex, Chase and Citi) but, because the airline applies surcharges to its awards, Virgin Atlantic miles get very little love....but you shouldn't dismiss their usefulness too quickly.
No sooner has Amex's 40% transfer bonus to British Airways and Iberia ended and we get a new transfer bonus to Virgin Atlantic....only this bonus isn't nearly as friendly. Personally I'm not seeing any kind of bonus in my Membership Rewards account but Doctor of Credit has seen offers of bonuses ranging between 10% and 20% and at least one commenter has claimed he/she is seeing a bonus of 30% in their account.
Virgin Atlantic may not be an airline which automatically springs to mind when you’re considering air travel but its Flying Club loyalty program can be very useful if you know what to look for – that’s why transfer bonuses between Amex Membership Rewards and Virgin Flying Club are always worth a closer look.
American Express has been offering a 30% bonus on all Membership Rewards transfers to Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club for a few weeks now but the offer expires on 30 November so there isn't much time left to make the most of this.
