American Express is currently offering a 30% bonus on points transfers to Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club. This is valid until September 12, 2018

Is this a good deal? While I’d never speculatively transfer, you can find some great uses for Virgin Atlantic miles. The most notable use is to use for round trip first and business class flights on their partner ANA.  This means you can fly ROUNDTRIP in ANA’s luxurious First Class from the US to Tokyo for 85,000 – 93,000 Amex points. 

Booking Delta transcons from LAX/SFO-JFK can be a good deal as well. Always find availability before transferring miles…. but luckily Amex transfers are (generally!) instant.

Bear in mind that all of your transferable currencies (all card programs + SPG/Marriott) transfer to Virgin. So it’s important to consider your balances in all before deciding which to use for Virgin redemptions.
