Who doesn’t love free and easy miles and points?! If you are a fan of free and easy miles then here a few opportunities to add some free points to your stash…and while you are at it, you can do it for the whole family!

Get 1,000 Free Virgin America Elevate Points

Via two different but similar offers you can get up to 1,000 free bonus points from Virgin America. Elevate points are often worth around 2.1 cents each in my test searches, so this is a decent return for a few seconds of your time.


Also remember that Virgin America has been acquired by Alaska Airlines, so these free points are probably worth getting even if you don’t currently utilize Virgin America.

Get 250 Free Avios for Pre-Registering for Aer Lingus AerClub

The Irish airline, Aer Lingus will be joining the “Avios family” in the coming months via a new program called AerClub. Avios will then be the rewards currency of the British Airway’s Executive Club, Iberia Plus, and the yet-to-be-launched AerClub.

If you are not currently an Aer Lingus Gold Circle Club member, you can provide your name and email address to get 250 free Avios for pre-registering your interest in AerClub. Once the program eventually launches you should be able to move Avios between AerClub and British Airways and/or Iberia Plus just as you can between British Airways and Iberia Plus.


Thanks to Head for Points for this tip.

If you come across any other free and easy opportunities for miles and points, please let me know so we can spread the word.

  1. Any idea whether they’ll start charging higher fuel surcharges after switching over to Avios? We’ve been planning a trip a Ireland for next year and wonder whether we should book our award flights on Aer Lingus sooner rather than later. What are your thoughts?
