30% Transfer Bonus From American Express Membership Rewards to Virgin America

Get 30% more Elevate® points when you transfer Membership Rewards® points to your Virgin America Elevate account. Offer ends April 30, 2014. Terms, conditions, and restrictions apply.

Instead of the normal 200 Membership Rewards points to 100 Elevate points, the limited time bonus turns that ratio into 200:130.

You can calculate how many points you need for partner redemption on this page.

Transferring MR points to Elevate points rarely makes sense due to the non 1:1 transfer ratio. Hopefully, this is just an appetizer of Membership Rewards transfer bonuses to come.

Let’s hope for better transfer bonuses in the coming months (come on, Avios!), especially with great new products out in the EveryDay & EveryDay Preferred credit cards.
