A few Membership Rewards transfer bonuses ended recently, but a couple of new ones showed up today. One of those is a 30% bonus when transferring your Amex points to Virgin Atlantic.
- Get a 30% bonus when transferring American Express Membership Rewards to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account.
- Expires December 28, 2019.
American Express offers transfer bonuses to Virgin Atlantic fairly frequently, but it’s always nice to see it return.
Virgin Atlantic has a few sweet spots, so those are made even sweeter by this bonus. For example, it normally costs 120,000 Flying Club miles to fly round trip in first class from New York to Tokyo which is a great deal in and of itself. This bonus though means you only have to transfer 93,000 Membership Rewards for that same award which is incredible value.
You can also book direct flights from the US to Europe on Delta for 50,000 miles each way in business class. If you can find availability in both directions, you’d only need to transfer 77,000 Membership Rewards to book that round trip business class award.
This transfer bonus is available for the next four weeks, so you have plenty of time to find some awards if this bonus interests you.
Such is award life sometimes – booked two seats SEA-SHA 13 hours in Delta One suites on A330-900neo for 120K + $11.20 .Ahead of Labor day weekend. Wish I could have waited but award space that works can change quickly.
I had iust locked in a pair of AC lie flat MEL-YVR and F NS from AU to NA. found a pair of seats Biz seats early October 2020 with points transfer.
That said you can find VA award seats in Delta One suites if you can stage from ATL, SEA or LAX to SHA and or PEK next year. For 46 MR with 30% bonus or 60K.
With AA you can book F on QF to Perth for 50k or 40K in Biz to Fiji (NAN) AKL, SYD, MEL, BRI to get get to Australsia (AU, NZ Fiji). you will have to double check for mixed cabins and find all first or biz for connecting flights.
You can also use SHA or PVG or PEK to stage on shorter flights to other nearby destinations in Asia. – its the intercontinental flights that are the killer
