Well I just seem to be racking up the Virgin America points recently, without ever having flown a Virgin America flight!  Previously I was not all that interested in Virgin America because they have no flights near me and charge pretty hefty fuel surcharges on their partner awards.  But now that Alaska is buying Virgin America for $2.6 BILLION, I have a hope that my Virgin America Elevate points will at some point be converted to (much more useful) Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles.  So while I don’t know that I would transfer other miles to Virgin America speculatively yet, I’m more interested in getting any free Elevate points that are out there

Today’s news comes courtesy of The Gate and One Mile at a Time (and others).  Virgin America is offering a “Hawaiiscape” promotion


You get 250 points for just signing up.  You can also share it on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn (seriously?) for additional entries, but if you don’t feel like doing that, you can just say “No, thanks I’m done”, and walkaway with your 250 points.

Every little bit helps!
