Keep Vs. Cancel: Virgin Atlantic Card


What a quick call this was:

TPOL: I would like to close my card.

Agent: Why?

TPOL: Because of the annual fee.

Agent: Reads Disclaimer and adds, “You’re account is now closed.”

I signed up for the Virgin Atlantic card and met the incredible 24k spend to receive the 93k sign up bonus. Then I transferred MR’s using Amex’s 30% bonus to reach the 120k threshold for a RT to Japan on ANA first from the east coast. Now that the card is closed, the only thing left to do is book my trip. I’ve been to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. While I would like to see other cities, I wouldn’t mind going back, especially if I can stay at the St. Regis Osaka again.

Hibiki anyone?
