From Dan’s Deals, Virgin America is offering 500 points to anyone who enters their Elevate frequent flyer number on or before December 31. There are some reports in the comments that there is a cap on how many accounts will be accepted from a single electronic device, so maybe keep a couple extra phones or computers around if you are trying to get them for your whole family.
A sample $204 fare from Seattle to San Francisco could be booked with points instead for a cost of 8,791 points and $5.60 in fees, putting the value per point close to 2.2 cents each. But circumstances vary, and redemption values definitely change if you are booking on a partner airline. This offer is worth about $10 in free points but is better viewed as a way to keep your account active — so your miles don’t expire — if you don’t fly Virgin America very often.
Partial Terms & Conditions
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.
