Virgin Card

Virgin Atlantic Airways has teamed with Bank of America to launch the “Virgin Atlantic American Express Card.” Under the new program Virgin is offering a “White” and a “Black” card. Both cards offer three miles for every $1 spent on Virgin Atlantic purchases. The “White Card,” which has a $49 annual fee, offers one mile for every dollar in purchases, while the “Black Card,” with a $90 annual fee, enables cardholders to earn 1.5 miles per dollar spent in purchases with more opportunities to earn bonus miles. The new program also offers a 20,000 bonus miles after the first purchase, plus up to 15,000 annual bonus miles with a $25,000 spend and up to 5,000 bonus miles for additional cards. Additionally, cardholders earn one tier point for every $2,500 in purchases and additional tier points when flying Virgin Atlantic toward “Flying Club” status. There is also a 10% discount on published Virgin Atlantic “Premium Economy fares” through December 31st. Between now and the end of January 2009, for every $10,000 in spend, a cardholder is automatically entered for a chance to win a trip into space on “Virgin Galactic.” For more information visit: “”:
