Yesterday at around 3:30PM EST, I received an email from Citi with the subject line:  “Cameron, where can 30% bonus Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles take you?”.  (Maybe not so) ironically, this Citi transfer bonus comes hot on the heels of a current Membership Rewards 30% transfer bonus!  When transferring Citi points to Virgin Atlantic, you’ll typically transfer in increments of 1,000:1,000, with a minimum of 1,000 points in a transaction.  This promotion bumps that rate up to 1,000 ThankYou Points to 1,300 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles.  Virgin Atlantic is a transfer partner of Membership Rewards, Ultimate Rewards, ThankYou Points, and Marriott Bonvoy points, meaning you can stock up on points fast for a great redemption.

Fine Print

  • Promotion Period: ThankYou Point Transfers to Virgin Atlantic completed between 05/19/2019 12:00 AM ET and 06/22/2019 11:59 PM ET.
  • You will receive 30% more Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles for ThankYou Points transferred during the Promotional Period.
  • In order to transfer ThankYou Points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles using the Points Transfer feature on, you must be a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club member, and the first and last names on your ThankYou account and your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club membership must match.
  • Points can only be transferred in 1,000 ThankYou Point increments.

Virgin Atlantic offers some fantastic partner award redemptions as well as some great rates on their own metal.  Check out some of these sweet spots the team over at AwardWallet put together!
