That means that if you transfer 1,000 Membership Rewards points, you get 1,300 Virgin Points.
How to Transfer Membership Rewards to Virgin Atlantic
American Express makes transferring Membership Rewards to their partners easy. To transfer your points, simply login to your Membership Rewards account and click on the transfer option under “travel”. You will see all of the transfer partners listed and the Virgin Atlantic 30% transfer bonus will be automatic. You can also go directly to the transfer page.
Keep in mind that you will need to link your Virgin account before you can transfer points and the minimum you can transfer is 1,000 points.
Transfers are normally immediate, but it could take up to 72 hours for the transfer to be completed.
This is a good deal for anyone who was planning on using Virgin Points for a specific redemption or those that use the program regularly and will have a redemption option in the near future. You shouldn’t transfer points speculatively.
