Virgin America wants you to join their frequent flyer program called Elevate and/ or invite a friend to join. They’re also hoping to reward you for it.
With the current offer, new members can earn 500 Elevate points just for signing up for an Elevate account. You can earn an additional 7.500 bonus points after you take your first flight.
They would also like for you to invite friends to join their frequent flyer program. If you invite a friend to join and they take a flight by February 28, 2015, you will both receive a bonus of 7,500 Elevate Points.
Looking closer at the offer, it might not be as lucrative as it seems. To earn the highest amount of bonus points, you or your friend will have to be flying in First Class. If you’re flying in main cabin or main cabin select, your bonus will be lower for each level.
From Virgin America:
