In September there were two opportunities to earn free Virgin America points by signing up to receive emails from two Virgin-family brands (the first was through Virgin Hotels, and the next one through Virgin Sport).
Well, there’s yet another opportunity to earn 500 Elevate points for signing up to receive emails. This time around you can earn 500 free Elevate points if you sign up to receive emails from Virgin Produced by October 26, 2016.
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 October 26, 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.
By subscribing you agree to our terms and conditions. Virgin Produced has the right to email news, promotions, event information.
Other Elevate program terms and conditions apply, as detailed at https://www.virginamerica.com/cms/elevate-frequent-flyer/member-guide.
This is a no brainer, so be sure to register!
