    Good morning everyone, I needed to book a Virgin America flight from SFO to SAN and luckily there are 2 transfer bonuses currently running for Virgin America. Through October 8, American Express has a 25% transfer bonus when transferring Membership Reward Points to Virgin America miles (Doctor of Credit). Unfortunately, I have 2 complaints about AMEX Membership Reward Point transfers. To complete a transfer, you must enter the 4-digit (front) and 3-digit (back) security code on your Membership Reward earning credit/charge card (I selected my AMEX Platinum Charge Card). If you do not have your Membership Reward earning credit/charge card available, you will not be able to go past this screen and complete your transfer. This is incredibly annoying when you need to make a transfer and do not have the card in front of you. I much prefer using Chase Ultimate Reward Points and Citi Thank You Points which can be transferred much faster/easier since you do not need to enter any card information to complete the transfer.
