If you are wondering how to top yourself up to a balance of 120,000 (or 240,000) Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles, to take advantage of a window of opportunity to visit Japan in First Class, this promotion might interest you…

Between now and 8 March, 2020, you can acquire Virgin Atlantic miles incredibly cheaply, as long as you’ve recently flown on Virgin Atlantic, or plan to… This opportunity is due to the return of the Miles Booster bonus, where you can receive:

  • a 20% bonus on a “1x” boost
  • a 30% bonus on a “2x” boost
  • a 40% bonus on a “3x” boost

What is Miles Booster?

Miles Booster allows you to buy miles for 1p a mile, but the number of miles you can buy is based on the actual number of miles flown on a Virgin Atlantic flight (paid or reward). You are able to retro-actively “miles boost” for any Virgin Atlantic flights you’ve taken within the last six months. You can also “miles booster” for any future flights you will be taking with Virgin Atlantic. (the miles won’t arrive until three days after your flight – this prevents people from doing “miles booster” on a full-fare ticket, then cancelling for a refund)

You can also do Miles Booster for rewards flights on partner airlines, but only if you booked via Flying Club and can see the reservation on your Flying Club account. The transaction will go though online, but if you call Flying Club you will be told that the flights aren’t eligible for Miles Booster.

With Miles Booster – and the 40% bonus available until 8 March, 2020 – your net cost would end up as 0.71p per mile.

That screenshot of my offer to buy 49,000+ miles is a result of a reward flight to Tokyo on All Nippon Airways. 120,000 miles is already a bargain, but £350 + 71,000 miles (net)? Ridiculous!!!
