American Express just announced that it will be adding Virgin America to it’s Membership Rewards program.
Beginning October 5, 2011 AMEX card members who are registered for the Membership Rewards program will be able to redeem their Membership Reward points for Virgin America Elevate points. The exact details of the tie-up are awaited.
This is a welcome addition to the program after they lost Continental which ceases to be a partner of the Membership Rewards program from October 1, 2011 onwards.
I will blog about further details as and when they become available.
