Virgin America will soon merge with Alaska Airlines, but for now the airline appears to be on a promo streak. First, Virgin announced that it would be partnering up with Starwood Preferred Guest, and now the carrier is offering opportunities to win one of two trips to Hawaii. What makes this deal especially appealing, though, is that Virgin will give you 250 Elevate points just for entering!

To enter the contest (and claim your points), head over to Virgin America’s giveaway site and fill out the entry form with your Elevate number, name, email address and phone number. You might want to uncheck the second box above to avoid getting VA spam.

You need to register by May 27, 2016 in order to earn the 250 bonus points, which should post to your account 4-6 weeks after the sweepstakes has ended. Naturally, the 250 points won’t count toward Elevate elite status, which you can get for free via a status match.
