If the Points Guy’s valuation of miles is correct, 5k Virgin America miles are worth between $75 and $115.
Virgin America’s wine division emailed me this offer yesterday: Buy 15 bottles of wine for $80, get 5k Virgin America miles.
Officially it’s 12 bottles of wine, but you get 3 bonus bottles of wine with the order.
I’m not a wine guy, but that’s a pretty good deal on miles if you need them.
And due to the recent marriage of Virgin America and Alaska Airlines, starting January 9 you’ll be able to convert your Virgin miles to Alaska miles at a 1.3 to 1 ratio, meaning this little wine promo would net you 6,500 Alaska miles.
Here is the link to the deal.
**Update: Right after I posted this, Virgin America tweeted about the deal, so it must be available to everyone.
Let me know if the deal works for you!
