Weekdays are for earning and weekends are for fun – but what if you roll both into one? As a member of Virgin Red, Virgin’s sparkling new rewards club, you can earn points and have fun by doing the things you love on weekends, weekdays or anytime you like. 

That means you’re building up a wallet of Virgin Points as you go; simply by playing a quiz or a game, or buying yourself a treat. The beauty of this setup is that it’s a win-win for everyone. You earn reward points by having a ball, which you can then spend on more Virgin Red rewards (don’t say we don’t treat you). 

It’s so easy to top up your Virgin Points pot, in fact, that you can easily hack your way to 10,000 Virgin Points or more in the space of one weekend. We’re talking a bit of downtime on a lazy Sunday afternoon when you have 10 minutes to spare for games, quizzes or a few treat buys – all of which can get those points flowing in.  

In turn, 10,000 Virgin Points is your key pass to all kinds of fabulous Virgin Red rewards, from Amsterdam flights to language courses, a helicopter flight for one or a traditional afternoon tea for two.  

“How do we reach this land of wonders?”, we hear you cry. Well, hop onboard with us here as we show you instant and easy ways of earning points  – at a click of a button or the swipe of your thumb.
