American Express Membership Rewards has announced a 30% transfer bonus when transferring Membership Rewards to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club. The offer is valid through May 22, 2017, at 23:59 Mountain Time. Despite Virgin Atlantic and Virgin America cutting ties a few months back, there are still some sweet spots to be had.
Sweet Spots to be Had with Virgin Atlantic
Looking around the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, you can find plenty of great options for which to redeem your miles. Some of the best deals on using your miles include the following:
- Business class awards to Europe with Delta—for 90,000 to 100,000 miles round-trip (depending on origin)
- Business class on Virgin Atlantic between London-LHR, and Atlanta, Detroit,
- Business class awards on Virgin Atlantic between the UK and Los Angeles or Las Vegas
- Intra-South Africa Awards with Virgin Partner South African Airways
To find out exactly how many miles you'll receive when you transfer your points, just head over to the Membership Rewards promotion page and enter the number of points you want to transfer and you'll see how many miles you will receive.
The function works the other way as well so if you know how many flying club miles you need for a particular award, you can enter them to find out exactly how many Membership Rewards points you need to transfer.
Transfer bonuses from American Express Membership Rewards are always a sweet treat. If you have any travel planned on Virgin Atlantic or some of its partner airlines, it is well worth looking at. Any offer that increases the leverage and value of The Platinum Card® from American Express or your Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express is welcome news.
