Earn 500 – 1,000 Virgin Flying Club miles per stay with Marriott.

Yesterday we covered a new Marriott / British Airways promotion. This offered 500 or 1,000 bonus Avios, depending on brand, on European stays for the rest of 2019.  More details are on marriott.com here.

It turns out that there is an identical Virgin Atlantic offer – see here.  The same rules apply:

Stay by 31st December

No minimum stay required

Get 500 or 1,000 bonus Flying Club miles when you switch your earning preference from Marriott Bonvoy points to airline miles

Bonus is on top of your base earnings of 2 miles per $1 spent, which is explained on this page of the Virgin Atlantic website
