Barclays Virgin America Card

Barclays has a limited time offer (until August 31st) for a Virgin America Visa Signature card that provides 20000 bonus points after first purchase, up to 5000 points with a balance transfer, $150 off a companion ticket each year and all this for a $49 annual fee.

Obviously, 20k bonus points seems somewhat small compared to the now-regular 50k offers coming out of Chase and Citi but it is worth mentioning that this is coming from Barclays, a bank not known for offering exceptionally huge offers.
