Virgin Atlantic's has brought back the best points sale that we've ever seen it run and that means that for the next few weeks, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members can buy points from 0.89 pence each (UK accounts) or from 1.48 cents each (US accounts).
For those who weren't able to make the most of Amex's September Virgin Atlantic transfer bonus, Chase has been offering its own transfer bonus since early October. There are, however, less than 4 days left to get in on this deal so if a 30% bonus for transfers between Ultimate Rewards and Virgin Atlantic makes sense for you, you're running out of time to get this locked in.
Today is the last day on which you can book select Virgin Atlantic awards and get back 50% of the points that you use in the form of a rebate. I've made no secret of the fact that I'm not a big fan of this promotion but just in case anyone reading this can make the most of it, here are all the details that you need to know.

Big news in the world of airline loyalty - Virgin Atlantic has announced that it will join the SkyTeam Alliance next year and this means that Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members will soon have access to more routes and more elite benefits when flying with other SkyTeam airlines.
Virgin Atlantic has announced that its Flying Club loyalty program is following in the footsteps of the British Airways Executive Club and, with immediate effect, will release a minimum number of Economy Class, Premium Economy, and Business Class awards on every flight that it operates as soon as flights are loaded in the reservation systems. For fans of Virgin Atlantic, this will sound like good news but the harsh reality remains - this move doesn't go far enough.
Virgin Atlantic's has brought back the same points sale that we saw it running in December and for once, a lack of innovation is a good thing as this is one of the best deals that we've ever seen the airline offer. All Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members can buy points with a 60% bonus while Gold members are being offered a 70% bonus so, with points available from 0.89 pence each for UK accounts and from 1.60 cents each for US accounts, there's a lot of scope to book some great deals courtesy of points purchased in this sale.
Virgin Atlantic ran an excellent status match promotion in the first two months of this year but, unfortunately for most readers, it was a match that was aimed solely at British Airways Executive Club members. Now a new status match offer appears to have been launched which is considerably more inclusive.
Virgin Atlantic has just announced that it is lowering the elite status targets for the 12 months from 1 April 2022 as well as making elite status easier to earn for travelers who book through Virgin Holidays. The airline has also announced a gift and a nice bonus for Silver Card holders as well as a points promotion open to all that runs through March next year.
Following two 6-month status extensions in 2020 and 3-month extensions in February and May 2021, Virgin Atlantic has decided that the continuing barriers to travel faced by a lot of its customers warrant a 5th round of elite status extensions.
