Virgin America is offering 500 free Elevate points if you register to receive emails about Virgin Hotels between now and September 30, 2016. Bonus points should post within 10 days of the end of the promotion.
I value Virgin America Elevate points at ~2.2 cents each, so to me the 500 points are worth ~$11. That’s super easy for signing up to receive emails, especially since you can cancel your email subscription in the future. This will also extend the expiration of your Virgin America points, which otherwise expire after 18 months of inactivity. Also keep in mind that since Alaska will soon be taking over Virgin America, these points will eventually be converted into Alaska Mileage Plan miles.
The full terms of the promotion are as follows:
* Offer valid until September 30th, 2016. Only one email address is allowed and only one set of 500 points will be awarded per Elevate account number. Bonus reward points earned in this offer do not qualify towards Elevate Gold or Elevate Silver status. Please allow 10 days for your points to post from the promotion end date.
