Save $300 on Virgin Atlantic bookings with this targeted Amex offer

American Express has launched a new offer for transatlantic travel with Virgin Atlantic, following a similar offer with British Airways. Cardholders have the opportunity to save $300 on select bookings, with a maximum rebate of 15%. This article will explore the details of the offer and provide some quick thoughts and recommendations for targeted cards.

The headline details of the offer state that cardholders can receive a one-time $300 statement credit by using their enrolled eligible Card to spend a minimum of $2,000 in one or more purchases online at virginatlantic.com by January 12, 2024. The flight must originate in the US and be charged in USD to qualify.

The key terms of the offer include enrollment limitations, the requirement to add the offer to the Card before redemption, a limit of one enrolled Card per Card Member across all American Express offer channels, and the fact that the offer is only valid for one-way and round trip purchases made directly with Virgin Atlantic Airways, online at virginatlantic.com, or through the Virgin Atlantic Airways mobile app. The offer excludes desk ticket and call center bookings, in-flight purchases, luggage charges, and meals. Additionally, the offer is only valid for purchases made in US dollars.

A notable aspect of this offer is that multiple purchases totaling $2,000 or more will trigger the rebate, meaning cardholders do not have to spend the entire amount in one transaction. Additionally, the offer is valid until January 12, 2024, allowing ample time to plan a trip.

However, there is one limitation to be aware of – the rebate is only available on trips originating in the United States and fares paid in USD. This excludes any cheap premium cabin fares originating in Europe. Despite this, the offer covers flights into December 2024, as it requires payment by the deadline, rather than completion of the flight.

For those considering a Business Class booking, it is worth noting that Virgin Atlantic now operates aircraft with newer Business Class seats, which are considerably more comfortable than their previous offerings. It is recommended to aim for flights with these newer seats.

The targeted cards for this offer include The Platinum Card(R) from American Express, which offers 5 points per dollar on up to $500,000 of spending directly with airlines or on flights booked through Amex Travel. This represents an additional rebate of 7.5%. The American ExpressĀ® Green Card is also a good option, offering 3 points per dollar on most travel purchases. If neither of these cards is available, The Blue Business(R) Plus Credit Card from American Express offers 2 points per dollar on up to $50,000 of spending annually.

In conclusion, if you are planning a transatlantic trip in the near future, it is worth checking if you have been targeted for this offer. By spending $2,000 with Virgin Atlantic, you could save $300 on your booking. Remember to check the terms and conditions for full details and enjoy your travel experience with Virgin Atlantic.
