Is It Worth It?
If you are after a specific redemption with Virgin Atlantic or one of its partners, then this is one of your best options to boost your miles balance. Remember Virgin Atlantic is one of the few airlines that is partnered with all three major transferrable credit card rewards programs.
Transfer bonuses are a frequent benefit of Membership Rewards. This is the first time in 2018 we've seen such a transfer with Virgin Atlantic, the last time a 30% transfer bonus ending in November 2017.
Even though Virgin Atlantic Flying Club underwent some predominantly negative changes in 2016, the program still has some sweet spots and great redemption options with partners.
