Earlier today, Virgin America and Starwood announced a new partnership, where Starwood members can now convert Starpoints into Elevate points at a 1:1 ratio, with a 5,000 point bonus for every 20,000 points transferred. That represents a fantastic value.
Virgin America has another cool promotion they’re launching today, where Virgin America Elevate members can enter to win a Hawaii vacation. Your chances of winning the contest are very small, of course. But the reason I’m posting about this is because Virgin America Elevate members can receive 250 free Elevate points just for entering the contest.
The process is super simple — you just have to enter your Elevate number, name, email address, and phone number.
Then you’ll be brought to a page which allows you to share the contest via social media, which potentially gets you more entries. However, if the goal is to simply get the free 250 Elevate points, just hit the “No Thanks, I’m Done” button at the bottom.
And that’s it — you’ll then be entered.
The promotion is valid through May 27, 2016, and is open to US residents who are 21 years of age or older. Bonus points should post 4-6 weeks after the conclusion of the promotion.
This is an easy free 250 Elevate points. Elevate points can be redeemed for ~2.2 cents each towards the cost of a ticket on Virgin America, so 250 points is worth ~$5.50. Also keep in mind that since Alaska will soon be taking over Virgin America, these points will eventually be converted into Alaska Mileage Plan miles.
Assuming you’re eligible, there’s no reason not to take advantage of this promotion!
