Virgin America Twitter promotion gives 50% off ticket prices

[Editor's note: this deal has expired! Congratulations to those who scored a ticket!]

When Virgin America puts on a sale, they really go all out. Get ready to save, Virgins… err, flyers…

Virgin America’s latest promotion is via their Twitter account. The Red Hot 50% Off Promo is only available for purchase on Tuesday, April 13, 2010 between 1:30 p.m. and 7:59 p.m. EDT. All you have to do is give Virgin America your Twitter account name, or sign up on Twitter, and you’ll be rewarded with a 50 percent off coupon code.

The Red Hot 50% Off Promo must be used for two guests traveling on one itinerary only, and is valid for flights to and from any Virgin America destination. Availability is limited to the first 500 people to book.

Here’s the deal:

  • Login with your twitter account using this link.
  • If you are a @virginamerica follower, then you’ll get your discount if one is still available when you go through the process. If you are not a @virginamerica follower, then once you login, you’ll automatically become a follower.
  • After login, click “Grab a Seat” to use your discount.

We did a quick check of the promo’s validity and found it to be true – we grabbed a promo code and signed up for two round-trip tickets from Los Angeles to San Francisco at the discounted price of $65 per ticket. Stay tuned for more updates from @virginamerica or search #VXRedHot to get more flight deals from Virgin America.
