A quick heads up that MBNA has extended the current sign-up offers on three of its airline credit cards.
The impressive Virgin Flying Club offer has been extended from 30th June to 14th July. This offers 10,000 miles for the free White card and 30,000 miles for the £140 Black card. Remember that you can get both the White and Black cards!
The American Airlines bonus has been extended from 31st May to 30th June. This offers 15,000 AA miles for this free card.
The United Airlines deal has been extended from 30th June to 15th July. This offers 15,000 United miles for signing up – again, the cards are free.
My original posts on the deals can be found by clicking the links below, but ignore the closing dates in those articles:
There is also a new offer on the MBNA-run Etihad Guest card. This now offers 12,000 Etihad Guest miles as you can see here. I will analyse this offer in detail very soon.
The Lufthansa Miles & More credit card has not been extended. The bonus on that card has dropped back to the usual 1,500 miles.
