There are 2,000 bonus Virgin Points up for grabs for all Tesco Clubcard members to celebrate Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club becoming Tesco Clubcard’s exclusive frequent flyer partner.

With the UK back in lockdown, fewer travellers are earning Virgin Points in the air, so earning Virgin Points on your weekly Tesco shop is the perfect way to give your balance a boost.

To claim their bonus Virgin Points, all Clubcard members have to do is set up an auto-exchange for the first time to change their Tesco Clubcard points into Virgin Points. Plus, those who auto-exchange for the next three statements (May, August and November) will be entered into three prize draws to win one of 15 prizes of 40,000 Virgin Points – that’s enough for two return flights from London to New York.

Tesco Clubcard members can exchange as little as £1.50 in Clubcard vouchers, which will get them 375 Virgin Points. That’s 2.5 Virgin Points for every Clubcard point they have. There are more details on the Tesco website about how to set up auto-exchange.

Richard X Moore, director of partnerships at Virgin Red – the Virgin Group’s exciting new rewards club, said: “We know Clubcard members love to travel and whilst people may find themselves less able to get away this winter (due to temporary lockdown restrictions), we’re delighted to offer them this exclusive deal. The Virgin Atlantic Flying Club is proud to be Clubcard’s travel partner – offering reward flights across Europe and beyond – with Virgin Points that never expire.”
