Elevate® Silver and Elevate® Gold Status are your tickets to special treatment on the airline that makes flying good again. Learn more about how to raise your status and experience flight in the fast lane.
As an Elevate member, you’ll earn status points toward Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold Status when you fly with Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic, and Virgin Australia, or spend $25,000 or more a year with your Virgin America Visa Signature Card.* It’s simple. The more you fly, the more you spend, and the more you use your card, the more status points you earn.

Terms and Conditions:
*Qualifying status points: Each year, Virgin America Visa cardholders will earn bonus status points if $25,000 in eligible purchases have been made using the credit card during the applicable year. Cardmembers that have an annual fee will earn a 10,000 status points (provided the annual fee has been paid) and Virgin America Visa cardholders not paying an annual fee will earn 5,000 status points. Each year will be measured based on billing cycle end dates beginning in January and ending in December of the applicable year, regardless of account open date. Any eligible purchases made after the December billing cycle end date will be applied to toward the next year’s status point earnings. Approximately 6-8 weeks after the billing cycle end date in which the $25,000 in eligible purchases threshold has been reached, the 10,000 or 5,000 Status Points earned, as applicable, will be posted to the cardholder’s Elevate account.
