Undervalued 75,000 Mile Credit Card Offer Returns for Virgin Atlantic

The increased offer for the Virgin Atlantic card has returned until January 31, 2019 (Hat tip Doctor of Credit).  This card’s bonus can be worth up to 90,000 miles after the first year of card membership but the true welcome bonus is for 75,000 miles.  I think this is one of the more undervalued cards out there and one that I got last year.

Credit Card Offer Returns for Virgin Atlantic

Why This Card Is Undervalued

I signed up for this card last year and I think it is one of the more undervalued cards out there.  The bonus requires a lot of spend but they also give you ample time to complete it.  Plus the 1.5 miles per dollar earning structure is better than almost every other airline credit card.

Living in a Delta hub I like using Virgin Atlantic miles to fly Delta for a fraction of the cost. In my guide I showed that you can book first class flights to Europe for 100K round trip plus $50 in taxes and fees.  The availability can be tough to find at times but with proper planning there is value to be had.  And if you need hotel points in a pinch the Virgin Atlantic program offers somewhat reasonable transfer rates.

Conclusion

This is a compelling offer worth consideration but make sure that you have a use for the miles before applying.  Bank of America is also the toughest approval in the business these days. This was the last personal card I was able to get approved for from them so maybe this approval is a little easier than their other cards.

  1. You state here that you can’t have more than 4 personal BofA cards. I thought that you were limited to 4 cards per rolling 24 months.

    • Yes for there 2,3,4 rule I believe it is 24 months. Although I believe they also closed many peoples credit cards accounts that had over 4 cards to reduce their numbers down as well.

  2. So are you able to get your anniversary bonus upon the end of year #1 and then close the card and have the AF refunded and keep the miles?
