Virgin Atlantic is currently offering a bonus of up to 70 per cent for Flying Club members purchasing Virgin Points.

The promotion runs until March 11, and sees elite members benefit from an enhanced bonus points structure compared to non-elite members.

Standard members will receive a 15 per cent bonus when purchasing between 5,000 and 24,000 points, rising to 20 per cent for points purchases of between 25,000 and 69,000, 40 per cent for purchases between 70,000 and 119,000, and 60 per cent when purchasing between 120,000 and 200,000 points.

But Silver and Gold members will receive higher bonus percentages, as follows:

  • 5,000 – 24,000 points purchased = 20 per cent bonus
  • 25,000 – 69,000 points purchased = 30 per cent bonus
  • 70,000 -119,000 points purchased = 50 per cent bonus
  • 120,000 – 200,000 points purchased = 70 per cent bonus

Virgin Flying Club miles were rebranded as Virgin Points in September 2020, as part of a move to a unified rewards currency for all Virgin companies.

Flying Club members can now join the Virgin Red loyalty scheme, and link their accounts together, expanding earn and burn opportunities.

Commenting on the bonus points offer Richard X Moore, partnerships director, said:

“To start the new year, we want to ensure even more members are recognised for their continued loyalty, which is why we are offering a bonus of up to 70 per cent for Flying Club Gold and Silver Tier members, giving them the opportunity to purchase up to 200,000 Virgin Points.

“All other members can also take advantage of a very generous bonus of up to 60 per cent, enabling them to quickly top up their balance and start rewarding themselves with the things they need, want and love!

“Across both Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club and Virgin Red, there are hundreds of rewards to suit everyone, whether that’s a small everyday treat to put a smile on your face or a bigger extraordinary experience for yourself or the whole family – the possibilities are endless.”
