Founderscard Adds Virgin Atlantic Elite Status Benefit
FoundersCard is a private membership club, with close to 50,000 members. It offers discounts at hundreds of merchants and travel partners. It also gives you elite status at hotels, airlines, and rental car companies. The membership costs $595 and also has a $95 initiation fee. But there are usually discounts, and when applying through referrals, you only pay the preferred rate of $395, and the $95 initiation fee is waived.
The membership is often updated with new benefits. The latest addition is free Virgin Atlantic Silver Status fast track to Gold Status. FoundersCard members can now receive:
- Complimentary Flying Club Silver Elite Status upgrade for one year, after completing one flight
- Fast Track to Gold Status (earn 500 Tier Points within 6 months)
Here’s how it works:
- Enroll here if you are not a Flying Club member already
- Submit the form and your Flying Club account is eligible to be upgraded to Silver status once you have completed at least one leg of a Virgin Atlantic flight. Once you submit this information, please allow up to 6 weeks for processing.
- To qualify for this Flying Club offer, you must register your existing membership or join Flying Club (link provided on the offer page).
- Your status will be applied within 10 business days of your first flight.
- Upgrade is applicable for one year of FoundersCard Membership. (Standard mileage re-qualification requirements apply. Other Terms and Conditions may apply.)
- Receive Fast Track to Flying Club Gold Elite Status when you earn 500 tier points within six months of joining.
