In the spirit of the holidays, Virgin America is offering members 500 free Elevate points.
Virgin America Elevate has a revenue-based program, meaning the cost of an award ticket is based directly on the cost of a revenue ticket. Each Elevate point can be redeemed for roughly 2.2 cents towards the cost of a Virgin America ticket.
To receive your 500 bonus points, follow this link to the registration page. Even if you didn’t receive the email you can enroll, and the entire process took less than a minute.
The full terms are as follows:
* The typical earn for Elevate members is 5 points per $1 spent on the base fare for Virgin America flights — in this offer, you will receive a one-time bonus of 500 Elevate reward points. Guests must be enrolled with an active account in the Elevate frequent flyer program and claim their bonus by correctly entering their Elevate number online on or before December 31, 2014. Only one bonus points award will be credited per Elevate member account. Eligible Elevate members will receive their bonus reward points up to 3 weeks after submitting their claim. Bonus reward points do not qualify towards Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold status. Bonus reward points cannot be transferred between accounts and will only be posted to the Elevate membership account as detailed in the notification email. Other Elevate program terms and conditions apply, as detailed at https://www.virginamerica.com/cms/elevate-frequent-flyer/member-guide. Points required to redeem an Elevate travel reward on Virgin America will be publicly available on a seat and flight-specific basis and are subject to change. Domestic reward bookings are subject to a security fee of $5.60 per segment, payable by credit card or Virgin America credit file. The Passenger Facility Charge and Segment Fees are waived for domestic reward bookings. For international reward bookings, Virgin America guests are responsible for the taxes and fees incurred from international travel. These taxes and fees are subject to change at the discretion of each country’s government and also vary from country to country depending on the origin and destination. Reward redemptions for Partner Airline flights are subject to availability and capacity control. Partner Airlines may limit the number of reward seats available on any flight and may prohibit travel on certain days. Partner Airline reward flight redemptions do not include any applicable passenger taxes, fees, charges and surcharges, which may cost up to $2,000 and which will be charged to and payable by each guest. The amount of such fees is subject to change and are payable at the time of booking.
This is a nice gesture, and while 500 Elevate points won’t go all that far on their own, they’re free points!
