While there’s plenty to enjoy during the chillier months, British winters can be long, dark and wet, so who can blame you for wanting to hunker down until spring? But staying indoors doesn’t have to be dull, especially when you can earn Virgin Points from the comfort of your own home. From takeaways and shopping to playing games and shaking up cocktails with Virgin Wines, the options are endless. 

So say goodbye to boredom and let Virgin Red be your guide to ensuring that the entertainment doesn't take a winter hiatus…and earn points whilst you’re at it. 

Take a cooking break with a takeaway 

If running the kitchen over Christmas has you hankering for a break from pots and pans, as a Virgin Red member you can earn points with every curry, pizza and cheeky Nando’s. Order whatever you’re craving directly to your doorstep with Just Eat, Deliveroo, and Domino's Pizza and enjoy the meal knowing you've earned valuable points with every bite. 

Shop without the crowds 

With the sales still in full swing, now is the time to grab some bargains. Earn points with every purchase, whether you're hunting for the perfect coat at Selfridges, diving into a long-awaited DIY project with Homebase, or settling in for a reading marathon with Waterstones.  

Get gaming  

Whether you fancy a quiz or a game of speed, Virgin Red provides plenty of opportunities to score points with competitions and games. Updated weekly, you can test your reflexes with ‘Don't Drop the Shops’ or test your trivia knowledge with ‘Let's Get Quizzical’, along with other ways to win extra points. If you’re a lucky winner, the Virgin Points will be credited straight to your account. Good luck!
