20% Off Virgin America Coupon & $15 Live Nation Concert Cash From SPG

Just saw these both of these offers on Dan’s Deals and thought that FFU Readers might find them useful.

Virgin America 20% Off Coupon

I just booked a flight to LA 2 days ago, so I wish I would have seen this coupon because I’ve been dying to fly Virgin America.

To get the coupon, you just have to submit your email address and they will send you a 20% off code.

Travel has to be booked by July 31, 2012 and travel has to be between August 28 and November 14, 2012.

Labor Day weekend is unfortunately blacked out.

$15 Live Nation Concert Cash Via Starwood Preferred Guest

This offer will probably be more useful to the younger demographic but since SPG is a partner with Live Nation, they are offering $15 Concert Cash dollars to SPG members.

It’s unfortunate SPG / Live Nation changed the offer to only $15, because last year it was $50 and lets just say thanks to StubHub, my $1,500 Macbook Air was paid for in full due to that promotion.

Anyways, the concert cash is good for concerts and merchendise, so I’d suggest getting in on it since it is free!

10% Off British Airways Flights With British Airways Visa Card

British Airways 10% Off With Visa Card

Sam from Phoenix sent me an email today saying he signed up for the 100,000 Avois Points offer from British Airways and his Card just arrived in his mailbox today.

He was looking over the marketing material that came with his new British Airways Visa and to his surprise, it looks like when you use your British Airways Visa to book your flights on BA.com, using code CARDOFFERU, you get 10% off BA flights!

Full details can be found here.

From the BA website:

10% off when you book through BA.com/Chase10:

  • Discount is off the total cost of the fare (including taxes, fuel and surcharges).
  • Choose from any of British Airways 300+ destinations.
  • Travel in any cabin—World Traveler, World Traveler Plus, Club World or First.
  • Book up to eight friends and family members traveling on the same flight.

If the 100,000 mile sign up bonus wasn’t already enough of an incentive to sign up for the British Airways Visa, than this 10% discount certainly is icing on the cake.

For anyone who has looked up tickets to Europe this summer, you are aware how high it is. I ran a Kayak.com search and it was over $1,000 a ticket in Economy.

Basically if you took 1 paid trip on British Airways a year, the 10% off discount would easily cover the cost of the annual fee for this Card.

Also since 1 Card can be used to book up to 8 tickets, if you are a Family of 4 visiting Europe, on the example above, you would save almost $400 on your tickets.

Additionally, with the British Airways Visa, you earn 2.5 Avios Points per $1 spent on BA.com.

Chase is really stepping their game up with the benefits on this Card and if you haven’t already signed up to take advantage of the 100,000 Avois Points sign up offer, I would strongly suggest doing so!

If anyone from Chase is reading this, I think it is safe to say that everyone would also love the United MileagePlus Explorer to have a similar discount on United flights!

1,000 Free Virgin Elevate Points

New Girl In The Air points out that if you register for Virgin America’s Facebook “yearbook”, you get 1,000 free Virgin Elevate points! I don’t understand the promotion, but I will take 1,000 free points any day.

I have never flown Virgin, but have heard great thing and would love to fly them in the future (on miles of course)!

Not to mention their marketing is HILARIOUS! Read the headline of the newspaper below ; )

These are photos from the inaugural Chicago to San Francisco flight last year!

When was the last time you saw United or American show such enthusiasm for a new route or really any route for that matter?

 

439 Free United or American Airlines Miles

Now as I always say, if the miles are free, you are dumb not to take them.

Case and point is that yes I may never fly on Virgin or collect enough miles on Virgin to get a free flight, HOWEVER as Just Another Points Traveler points out, you can use Points.com to convert these 1,000 free Virgin Elevate points into 439 free United or American Airline miles!

These types of free mile promotions -> Points.com conversions are great for keeping your United or American account active with activity so your miles don’t expire!

I did not previously have a Virgin Elevate account, so I quickly made one and entered this promotion, which all together took less than 2 minutes.

Then just so I won’t forget my username or password, I added my new Virgin account to AwardWallet!

30% Stackable Virgin America Coupon

As Dan’s Deals points out, you can actually stack the AMEX Virgin America 10% off statement credit promotion with a Virgin 20% off coupon for a total of 30% off your flight.

I’ll let him explain it, but it seems like a good deal especially since you can earn some Elevate points!
