Chase Ultimate Rewards to Virgin Points 30% Transfer Bonus
Until November 15th, transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, receive a 30% bonus on your transferred points.
Spending Virgin Points
The best use of Virgin Atlantic points is a Round trip to Japan on ANA in Business or First Class. Round trip in First is just 145,000 – 170,000 miles, which is fantastic for more than 24 hours in ANA First Class. Even more of a value (if you get the brand new Room product) is Business Class for 90,000-95,000 Virgin points.
You can also fly to/from continental Europe (but not the UK) for just 50,000 miles each way in business class if Delta has Delta One partner award space.
Using partners KLM or Air France to Europe can still be a decent deal as well, for example New York to Amsterdam on KLM in Business Class for 48,500 Virgin points + $296 in tax. Or New York to Paris for 48,500 points + $315.
You can also mix awards on Virgin + Delta/KLM/Air France.
Lastly, you can book Delta operated flights in North America (when available to partners) for a steal. In a recent trip I needed a last minute MEX-JFK flight. Delta wanted 57,000 miles. I paid 15,000 Virgin miles.
This has been added to our current and historical list of transfer bonuses.
