AMEX OFFER: Spend $500 with Virgin Atlantic and Earn 10,000 Points

Article By:

Just a couple days ago I wrote about an American Express Offer to save 15% off Starbucks purchases (that offer is still good through September 30, 2017 if you’re interested). AMEX is out with another great targeted offer this morning. Targeted cardholders can earn 10,000 Membership Rewards points after spending $500 or more on Virgin Atlantic.


The $500 can be spent in one or more separate transactions, they just have to be charged by Virgin Atlantic by October 31, 2017. Also note that only flights originating in the USA are eligible for the Offer. The bonus points should post to your American Express account within 90 days of October 31, 2017.

Since this is a targeted Offer, not every American Express will be eligible. Be sure to check if one of your credit cards has the offer. The Platinum Card from American Express is the ideal card to use for this as it earns 5X points per $1 spent directly with an airline. I’m happy to report my Platinum card does have this offer, though I don’t anticipate purchasing a Virgin ticket by October 31.
