Double Points and a Chance to Win a Trip for Two to Cancun With Virgin America
T wo separate opportunities are being offered by Virgin America simultaneously: one of them is a promotion where you can earn double Elevate Points for flights on which you are a passenger; and the other is a sweepstakes where you have a chance to win a trip for two to Cancun.
Double Dip Your Elevate Points
You can earn double Elevate frequent flier loyalty program points when you book your flights and fly as a passenger by Monday, February 29, 2016. You only need to register once prior to your date of when you first travel in order to participate in this promotion. You must be a member of the Elevate frequent flier loyalty program and correctly enter your membership number to your flight reservation prior to your date of travel.
This offer cannot be combined with any other earning promotions from Virgin America. If two offers are applicable for you, the most generous Elevate points offer will be applied.
Elevate members typically earn five Elevate points plus five elite status level points per every dollar spent on the base fare. With this promotion, you will earn ten Elevate points plus five elite status level points per every dollar spent on the base fare for all qualifying flights booked and flown between Tuesday, January 19, 2016 and Monday, February 29, 2016 between the following routes:

Terms and Conditions for Earning Double Elevate Points
Only tickets that are ticketed on a Virgin America prefix — VX — and operated by Virgin America will qualify for this offer subject to these terms and conditions. Bonus Elevate points will be posted to your account within four to six weeks after qualifying flights are flown as a passenger by you.
Any changes or cancellations might result in disqualification from the offer. All travel not normally eligible for earning reward points and status credits — including Elevate reward bookings — are excluded from this offer. Bonus Elevate points will only be earned if you have entered your Elevate frequent flier loyalty program membership number as a part of your flight booking. If you have chosen to earn points or miles with a frequent flier loyalty program of an airline partner, these flights will be excluded from this offer and no bonus Elevate points will be earned on your travel with Virgin America.
Posh Out in Cancun Sweepstakes
You have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a trip for two people to Cancun, which includes two round-trip tickets in the main cabin to Cancun International Airport in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico; and a stay of three nights in the Panoramic Junior Suite at the Thompson Playa Del Carmen — a luxurious resort property which was recently launched by Thompson Hotels, which is a partner of the Virgin America Elevate frequent flier loyalty program.
In addition to the flight and lodging accommodations for two people, this prize package — whose approximate total retail value is $4,300.00 — also includes breakfast every day either in the restaurant on premises or via room service; a credit of $100.00 for food and beverages; a complimentary poolside cabana for one day during your stay; and transportation to and from the resort property. Travel must be completed by Wednesday, December 21, 2016; and requires a minimum advance purchase of 14 days.
There are blackout dates in 2016 on which this prize cannot be used, which include:
- Friday, February 12
- Monday, February 15
- Friday, March 18 through Monday, April 4
- Friday, May 27

Official Rules for Posh Out in Cancun Sweepstakes
You must enter this sweepstakes by Friday, January 29, 2016 at 11:59 in the evening Pacific Standard Time for a chance to win; and there is a limit of one entry per person. No purchase is necessary, as a purchase of payment of any kind will not increase your chances of winning this sweepstakes; but you must be a resident of the United States who is 21 years of age or older to participate and is a member of the Elevate frequent flier loyalty program.
The drawing for the person to be selected as the winner will occur on or about Thursday, February 4, 2016
The winner is responsible for all transportation that is not set forth above, including without limitation, to and from the departing airports. All other expenses and costs not expressly stated in the prize description above including — but not limited to — ground transportation, meals, beverages, incidentals, taxes, passenger tariffs or duties, surcharges, airline or airport fees, service charges, facility charges, gratuities, optional excursions and purchases made during trip, are solely the responsibility of the winner.
Travel and accommodations must occur within the dates specified above and are subject to availability. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation, postponement or delay of any travel.
Other terms and conditions apply. See the complete official rules of this sweepstakes for details and additional information.
The double Elevate points offer is rather refreshingly simple in its terms and conditions and not needlessly complicated as seems to increasingly be the case with promotions offered by other frequent travel loyalty programs.
If I am going to enter a contest, I prefer that only one entry is permitted, as I dislike returning to an Internet web site every day for a month or two for a chance to win one prize — and this sweepstakes only takes a moment to enter.
Both offers are free of charge with no obligation and take little time on your part if you decide that you are interested in participating.
