Virgin America is celebrating its four million members by giving out more points! Essentially, all new members will earn 500 bonus points by signing up for an Elevate account through an existing members referral linkElevate is the name of the Virgin America frequent flyer program. The referring member will also earn 500 points for every friend/family member that registers for an account, up to 2,500 points.

If you end up referring the maximum 5 people, the bonus 2,500 points will get you a free ticket worth about $55. Virgin America works similar to Southwest and JetBlue where the higher the ticket price, the more points required – it is not a fixed redemption program like American, Delta, United, etc.

If you do not already have a Virgin America account, you might as well sign up for one and get the free 500 points to start you off. You never know when you might start accruing their points! Also, you might as well find 5 friends to sign up via email, Twitter, or Facebook. Here is my referral link for those interested, but feel free to leave your referral link in the comments section as well for other readers!

This promotion runs through March 31, 2016. All bonus points earned will be deposited within 4-6 weeks. You can learn more about this “Friends With Bennies” promotion here.

  1. I am an existing member. How do I get a referral link? It seems that Virgin America has removed the button to sign up for this promotion? Weird.
