Travelers can earn rewards while they eat. MOGL was selected as Virgin America’s first dining rewards partner for the carrier’s Elevate frequent flyer program. The new partnership allows Virgin America Elevate members to accumulate reward points when they eat out at one of the thousands of California restaurants affiliated with MOGL.
The new partnership with MOGL, a restaurant loyalty program on the west coast, offers Virgin America’s flyers greater options to earn reward points whether they are on a business trip or a vacation getaway. Virgin America Elevate members can sign up at virgin.mogl.com using their Elevate account number. They can earn 10 percent cash back on every bill from a partner restaurant. This will automatically be exchanged for Elevate points each month, at a rate of 30 points per $1 cash-back.
Bonus points through end of February
Elevate members who use MOGL for a restaurant transaction through February 28, 2013 will earn double points, so they will get 60 Elevate points per $1 in cash back rewards. Current MOGL members will still continue to earn 10 percent cash back in their MOGL account, but now also have the option of exchanging their cash for Virgin America Elevate points.
Elevate members can redeem points for any unsold seat on any Virgin America flight at any time. There are no blackout dates. Members can earn a reward flight for as 2,500 points, or as few as four roundtrips. Virgin America upgraded its Elevate program last summer adding Elevate Gold and Elevate Silver status levels, which provide greater traveler perks and enhanced social rewards for virtual check-ins. The Elevate frequent flyer program has over 2.6 million members. See here for more details on Virgin America’s Elevate frequent flyer program.
