Forums Payment cards Virgin Atlantic Buying Virgin Points using Virgin Atlantic Plus card – treated as purchase?

  • uklzk

    It may be a silly question, but can I use VA CC to buy virgin points? Will I get normal 1.5 point/£ for this purchase?

    I would appreciate if anyone can shed some lights as I am worried to get charged for Cash advance fee by doing so.

    Many thanks,

    Fine to buy and treated as a purchase. Normal purchase points earned; no VS spend bonus

    As with most points purchases – it comes through as a purchase from, not from virgin – hence no bonus earning as BWS says above.

    Points booster/miles booster purchases are the same.


    Thank you both to confirm. Much appreciated.
