5 easy ways to earn Virgin Points with a treat just for you
When was the last time you treated yourself in life? If the answer is, “I can’t even remember”, it’s high time to change tack. Virgin Red, the new rewards club from Virgin, is full of pick-me-ups – both large and small – to bring joy to your daily routine.
Better still, you can earn Virgin Points by buying something special for yourself, so there’s every excuse to dial up the self-care and indulge. In fact, by doing so, you’ll earn more points for more rewards, to keep the feel-good circle going. From fresh bouquets of flowers to French Riviera getaways, here are five great ways to treat yourself with Virgin Red AND earn points in the process.
Buy yourself a bouquet
If you’re anything like us, you probably spend your life ordering flowers for other people – but how about a bunch just for you? Luxury online boutique Appleyard Flowers is all ready to light up your living room with its collection of autumnal blooms, featuring fiery orange roses, oak leaves, glossy red berries and more. Virgin Red members can earn up to 14 points for every £1 spent here.
Book a flight to the French Riviera
With many of us dipping our toe back into travel this autumn, the sunshine city of Nice – the capital of the French Riviera – is a great place to start. Sandwiched between the Alps, Provence, Corsica and Italy, this elegant hub offers a taste of the good life with warm Mediterranean days, balmy sea views and top-notch cuisine. As a Virgin Red member, you can earn up to 5,128 points with an Air France flight to Nice.
Shop for new-season handbags
When we were little, we started autumn with a new pencil case – but nowadays, it’s all about handbags. Selfridges has a fab edit of tote bags, clutches, briefcases and more to see you through the colder months in style. Whether you’re a designer maven or prefer something more practical, you’re sure to find your forever bag match here. And, as a Virgin Red member, you’ll earn 8 points for every £1 spent.
Order a case of Virgin Wines
Our friends at Virgin Wines specialise in independent-label wines, carefully sourced from vineyards all over the world. As we head towards December, we particularly like the look of its Christmas All Wrapped Up Mixed Wine Case with Prosecco and 12 Wines of Christmas Red Wine Case. As a Virgin Red member, you could order these cases now (it’s only right you do your homework before your guests arrive, after all) and earn Virgin Points in the process.
Become a member of the National Trust
The National Trust looks after some of England, Wales and Northern Ireland’s most treasured estates and landscapes. Places you can visit with the organisation include Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian farmhouse, the childhood home of John Lennon and Basildon Park, where Downton Abbey was filmed. As a National Trust member, you get free entry to over 500 of these gems, with 2 points for every £1 spent on the membership via Virgin Red. That’s all the reason you need to get exploring this glorious land of ours, with a series of fascinating weekend adventures.
