Virgin Atlantic has a new promotion for their Shops Away-online shopping mall. You can get 1000 bonus miles for your first purchase of $40 or more before April 30, 2013. You can also receive 250 miles for downloading their Mile Finder.
You need to make first purchase using the Shops Away online site being logged in OR using the Shops Away Miles Finder. You can access Virgin Atlantic’s Shops Away shopping mall here.
I am not huge fan of these browser add-ons that just consume system resources, but wouldn’t mind download it to get get the 250 miles. There is a note in the terms and conditions that they reserve the right to remove these 250 miles IF you remove the Mile Finder, but doubt that this is enforceable.
This is a nice bonus for relatively small purchase. I have plenty of Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles, but these may come handy at some point. These will also move the expiry date of the miles that you may already have in your account.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
