Chase isn’t the only one offering a 30% transfer bonus to Virgin this month – Capital One is now doing the same.
- Get a 30% bonus when transferring Capital One miles to Virgin Red.
- Expires October 31, 2022.
Although both Chase and Capital One are now offering a 30% transfer bonus to Virgin, there’s a slight difference between them in how it’s done. Chase transfers Ultimate Rewards to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account, whereas Capital One transfers your miles to Virgin Red.
Virgin Red is Virgin’s all-encompassing loyalty program covering all their services. Points in Virgin Red can be used for award flights booked through Flying Club, while your existing Virgin Atlantic Flying Club mileage balance will also show up as Virgin Red points once you’ve linked your Virgin Red and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club accounts.
It’s straightforward linking your accounts. Unless you’ve already created a Virgin Red account in the last few months, you’ll need to create one here. I did that last night and it immediately prompted me to link my Flying Club account. Creating the Virgin Red account and linking my Flying Club account didn’t take much more than a minute, so it’s not a lot of hassle.
As for this transfer bonus, the 30% bonus means you’ll only need to transfer 39,000 Capital One miles to book Delta One one-way to Europe when there’s availability among other Virgin Atlantic sweet spots.
