Virgin America has launched their own shopping portal called Elevate Fly Store and they are offering all users 500 bonus Virgin America Elevate miles for making their first online purchase through the store by September 30. All you need is your Virgin America frequent flyer account details to log into the Elevate Fly store. It seems to have most major retailers so it should be relatively easy to find something you were going to buy anyway to get the extra 500 bonus miles.
I titled this post “500 Virgin America Elevate Miles for $.99” because even if you had no plans to shop through this new shopping portal, you could still get the 500 mile bonus for simply buying a single $.99 cent song in iTunes since the terms and conditions do not specific a minimum purchase amount. This is most likely the cheapest and easiest way to take advantage of this promotion. Make sure you search for iTunes and NOT the Apple store.
Here are the full terms and conditions of the offer (which surprisingly isn’t long at all). Note there is no language on the minimum purchase amount.
Bonus Point Offer Terms & Conditions:
The First Purchase 500 Bonus Point Offer is valid on your first purchase made via the Elevate Fly Store site from August 27 through September 30 2014.
Please allow up to 50 days from the date of purchase for bonus points to be credited to your account. If bonus points have not been credited within 50 days, please fill out the missing points claim form which can be accessed by visiting “Contact Us” on the Fly Store website.
