Virgin Atlantic comes in Black

Black credit cards are always a turn on and maybe a way to find a date when you are purchasing something big or small. You do not exactly have to be carrying the AMEX Black Centurion Card to get noticed when you can have the Virgin Atlantic AMEX Card which is also black. This card looks a little futuristic to me with the hint of the fun Virgin logo. Who can turn down 20,000 free Flying Club bonus miles after just one purchase? Now if we could only get one of these hot cards for the US based Virgin America. If you like to travel to Europe you can now get your passport out for more vacations or business trips and fly with an Airline you actually enjoy. Better design and atmosphere for transatlantic flights is what we hear most about this fun airline. 20,000 bonus miles will help me get started to saving up for that first upper class seat to London Heathrow.

This card may be called a Virgin but it has obviously researched its shoppers carefully. The fact that this card gives you more than any other airline on regular retail purchases which is 1.5 miles per $1 is just fantastic. You also get three Flying Club miles per spend on Virgin Atlantic purchases. All of these goodies pay for the annual fee of $90 instantly and make this card more valuable than the cards from American Airlines or United.

Now you can also choose to have the white version of this card and it still looks fabulous as anything with the Virgin brand. I prefer the black version of the card since it sets itself apart from all the other credit cards. The picture above of the plastic says Richard Branson’s name so if you really do get his card please send it over to me and I will take care of it – kidding of course!
