Looking to boost your Virgin America elevate balance for free, with minimal effort required? The airline is currently offering 500 bonus points via this promotion — simply sign up for Virgin Hotel email alerts by September 30 and you’ll see an additional 500 Elevate points in your account within 10 days.

You’ll need to agree to receive Virgin Hotel promotional emails in order to fulfill the terms of the carrier’s “Dirty Little Secrets” promo, but you can sign up in one easy step:

Virgin-America-Free-Points
Just enter your personal information and Elevate number, then click submit!

One caveat worth noting is that these points will not count toward Elevate Gold or Elevate Silver status. And while 500 points won’t get you a free flight, they could get you closer to an award, or can extend the expiration date of any other points you already have in your Elevate account.
