For a limited time, you can earn more miles for signing up for a cobranded Virgin Atlantic credit card. Virgin has reintroduced the increased sign-up bonus for new applicants of its Virgin Atlantic Reward+ Credit Card for a limited-time only.

New customers who sign up for and are approved for the card by 28 February 2020 will be eligible for a total of 25,000 miles — that’s enough for a one-way flight in economy to Hong Kong.

The sign-up bonus is tiered. The first level is the same as usual — you’ll get 15,000 miles after the first purchase on the credit card within 90 days of opening the account. You’ll get the second, additional bonus of 10,000 miles after spending a total of £3,000 in the first 90 days. In total, you can earn a maximum of 25,000 miles.

As per TPG U.K.’s most recent valuations, the maximum 25,000 bonus Flying Club miles are worth £300 — a solid bonus for a good product. Typically, the credit card offers a maximum of 15,000 miles as a sign-up bonus. Plus, you’ll earn miles for every pound spent in working to meet that minimum spend.

Virgin Atlantic has two Flying Club miles-earning credit cards. This offer applies to the Virgin Atlantic Reward+ Credit Card, which has an annual fee of £160. Along with the increased sign-up bonus, you’ll also earn 3 miles for each £1 spent on the card with Virgin Atlantic or Virgin Holidays and 1.5 miles per £1 spent on all other purchases. It’s a great option if you’re looking for a non-American Express-branded card.

The airline also has a second, fee-free card, the Virgin Atlantic Credit Card, for those who prefer not to pay an annual fee.
