All the bonus points earned from this promotion count towards Elevate Silver or Gold qualification.

It took me a while to get this promotion and I had to read the terms and conditions of both of these promotions. Both of the promotions are valid for non-stop or connecting traffic, but thru flights are excluded.

You will get double points for the first two round trips and triple points from third round trip for flights between:

San Francisco – Austin

San Francisco – Philadelphia

Los Angeles – Las Vegas

Los Angeles – Philadelphia

San Jose – Los Angeles

The number of Elevate point that you earn is based on the base fare. You earn 5 elevate points per dollar. When you redeem, the number of points required is based on the available fares. One Elevate point is worth around 2.15 cents in airfare.

Conclusion

This is a nice promotion for Virgin America Elevate fliers on these routes. I also like the fact that these bonus points count towards the Silver and Gold elite status qualification.

Here are the full terms and conditions of these promotions:
