Virgin America is offering 500 Virgin American Elevate points to new members of the frequent flier program. Additionally, if you are already an Elevate member, you can refer up to 5 friends to the program and get 500 points for yourself (in addition to the 500 points they will earn).
The link is my own, but once I hit my 5 referrals I’ll be happy to help others get their own free points, so feel free to leave your link in the comments (I’ll delete mine once I hit my 5).
Here are the full terms & conditions of Virgin America’s offer
Terms & Conditions:
Refer-A-Friend Bonus Points Offer
This offer is open to existing Elevate® program members (Referrer) who refer non-Elevate members (Referee) to join the Elevate Program via the ‘Flights with Bennies’ promotion microsite. The referee can also self refer. Referees are required to enroll in the Elevate program via the email, Facebook, or Twitter referral link as received by the Referee.
Elevate program administrators, secondary contacts, travel agents, or any other travel bookers making bookings on behalf of third parties are not eligible to participate in this offer. You may not enroll on behalf of new members; they must enroll using the referral link directly at virginamerica.com and accept the Elevate program terms and conditions. Offer ends March 31, 2016. May 31, 2016
Referrer Bonus Points
For every person you refer who enrolls in the Elevate program, up to 5 people, you will earn 500 bonus reward points. You can also refer yourself and earn 500 bonus points, which counts towards the 5 person limit. Bonus reward points will be credited to the Referrer’s account within 4-6 weeks. Bonus Points earned by the Referrer in this offer will not qualify towards Elevate Gold or Elevate Silver status. Bonus Points cannot be transferred between accounts.
Referree Bonus Points
Referees will earn 500 bonus reward points upon enrolling in the Elevate program. Bonus reward points will be credited to the Referee’s account within 4-6 weeks. Bonus Points earned by the Referee in this offer will not qualify towards Elevate Gold or Elevate Silver status. Bonus Points cannot be transferred between accounts.
Virgin America reserves the right to change, suspend or cancel this offer at any time without notice, and the bonus point levels listed are subject to changes at any time. Membership in the Elevate Program is offered at the discretion of Virgin America. Participation as an Elevate Member is subject to any terms and conditions, rules, policies and procedures that Virgin America may at its discretion change at any time without notice. Virgin America reserves the right to terminate the program or change the program terms, benefits, conditions of participation or points levels, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.

It’s a straightforward bonus offer, and a nice opportunity to start a new account with a few points in it, or a way to keep your current Elevate balance active if you’ve already earned some points. You have until May 31, 2016 to join and/or refer friends.
