Extraordinary rewards are better with friends, and with our new Refer a Friend programme you can earn a bonus Virgin Points code for a limited time when you introduce a friend/loved one/acquaintance to the wonders of Virgin Red – 1,000 to be exact. As soon as your chosen person has signed up and earned their first points, they’ll receive an extra 1,000 points and you’ll get 1,000 points, too.  

It couldn't be easier: just share your link via email, Facebook, Messenger or WhatsApp and when your friends sign up and earn points with one of our partners, we'll send you both a code for 1,000 Virgin Points.  

But you don’t have to choose between your neighbour and second cousin for the bonus points, as members can refer up to 10 people in a year – meaning there are 10,000 potential points with your name on them. 

Need some encouragement for what to do with your bursting balance? Read on.
