Datapoints:
There is a $90 AF and one cannot earn the 90K in one year unless one does $25K spending.
Best way to add to initial purchase bonus of 20K is to add AUs (and quite a few of them, too!).

I think Virgin Atlantic miles are underrated.

It's borderline impossible to get a full family on award miles from LAX to Lon (or even LAS to MAN). They regularly have 2 upper class, 5 economy, and 5 economy plus seats open for flights. Economy plus while a slight rip off is always wide open, so if you need to score 4-6 seats, it's one of the few options out there.

BA is the only other airline to have so many seats open out of LAX, and the fees are worse on BA.

82.5k miles for $15k spend is pretty good. Does anyone know if we'll need to pay the annual fee again on the anniversary to get the anniversary miles? (assuming you hit the spend for those)

I got the same email and am seriously thinking about applying. I keep receiving their mailer about the 65000 mile offer (which I ignore) so this is definitely a better offer. Need to dig deeper into what other airlines I can redeem those miles though.

http://www.virgin-atlantic.com/us/en.../airlines.html There you have all partners.

I think it's a good offer, and will probably apply soon. Hit the minimum spend with an authorized user and you end up with 87k miles.

I have no BOA relationship, but this might push me towards it. By my calculations, I'd get:

20K signup
50K spend bonus
18K from spend
5K from AU

93K miles after 6 months, with the ability to earn another 12K (7500 + 4500 from spend) with an additional $3K spend, or another 34.5K (15K + 19.5K from spend) with an additional $13K spend, for a total after 12 months of 128K miles on $25K spend (5x).

Seems solid. Is this card worth keeping after the bonus? Anyone has experience product changing this card to another BOA card?

This seems like a great deal, although it’s really more of a 75K offer, I wouldn’t count the 15K miles you get at your anniversary. I am not too worried about the minimum spend since it can be spread out over 6 months.

Is it easy to transfer the points to Virgin America and do they transfer 1:1? I’ve been wanting to get more VA points couldn’t think of any efficient way.

Got this card today along with the BofA Alaskan Airlines card. Had to recon for the Virgin card, but I got approved with a 5k limit.
