Virgin Atlantic Flying Club launched a Flying Club Miles with up to 70% bonus (tier level and threshold dependent). The offer is valid for purchases made through March 11, 2022.
Flying Club has increased the number of Virgin Points you can buy during this sale before the bonus from 100,000 to 200,000, and the lowest price is in British Pounds (requiring a change of the account address).
You can access this offer on Virgin Atlantic’s website here.
Price at 60% Bonus
Gold & Silver Flying Club members can get up to 70% bonus, but the maximum bonus is 60% for general members. The price of a mile under the 60% bonus is 1.7 US cents each.
Keep in mind that the pricing for the miles depends on where your account is registered. If your account address is in the UK, the purchase is priced in British Pounds and significantly cheaper.
There are some very reasonable Virgin Atlantic partner awards, like the ANA redemption I did the other year (read more here). If you plan to use the miles for Virgin Atlantic’s flights, consider that the fuel surcharges/carrier fees are high.
