If you decide to sign up for a Founderscard membership and use my referral link, it is much appreciated. Here’s a link to my full video review of the Founderscard and a complete list of the 2021 benefits.
It’s nice to see Founderscard Offer another free airline status benefit. It’s pretty cool that you’re able to enroll and then take one flight to get a full year of free status. Even better than that- the Gold status fast track is an awesome offer because it’s only 500 Tier points as opposed to the usual 1,000 points required. There are two current promotions that make this a really good deal. First, Virgin is awarding tier points on award flights right now and second, until further notice you’ll have two years to re-up whatever status you earn rather than the usual 12 months. (So basically you can get their top tier status until 2023 without actually paying for a flight.) I am pretty happy with Founderscard and if you can take advantage, this is a great benefit! Silver status has some good benefits, including free seat selection, priority boarding and bonus points on flights.
