What is the definition of happiness? We don’t know about you, but we’d say it has a lot to do with great food, loved ones and laughter. A long, leisurely brunch with bubbles and baked eggs. A picnic by the river, with French loaves, cheese and a hint of sunshine in the air. A chocolate-making masterclass, with all the pralines you can eat and Martinis on the side.

For all these fabulous foodie moments and many more, Virgin Red awaits. Our new rewards club is the place to be if you love grub as much as we do, with points to earn on takeaways, cooking classes, Michelin-starred meals and more. 

Fancy a taste of the good life? Whet your appetite with our pick of just a few fantastic food-related rewards you can earn points on with Virgin Red – a tasty paradise awaits.

Takeaways are the magic potion of life: they just make everything better. And with Virgin Red, you can earn up to 4 points for every £1 you spend at Just Eat. That’s a whole load of local and delectable meal ideas at your fingertips, with over 27,000 restaurants to choose from. Plus you’ll earn points in the process for more treats (afternoon tea for two, anyone?). 

Earn points at Domino’s Pizza

When the going gets tough – or even when it’s good – make room for Domino's Pizza. Whether you’re a pepperoni person or more of a ham and pineapple convert, this time-honoured takeaway is guaranteed to give your day a lift. With Virgin Red, you’ll earn 1 point for every £1 spent, too, which means double the reward.

It’s not just takeaways that come with point earning potential at Virgin Red. You can also dial things up with a fancy night out, with 10 points for every £1 spent at Virgin Experience Days. These folks have a maze of dining experiences to dazzle your loved ones with, from destination restaurants to Michelin-starred cuisine. 

For an iconic London outing, why not try a three-course lunch for two at Gordon Ramsay's Savoy Grill? Or for something more adventurous, you might like the idea of a six-course dinner for two with wine pairings on a high-end double-decker bus. The choice is yours.

Earn points on foodie masterclasses and workshops

Of course, seasoned foodies may be in the zone for something a little more hands-on; and here again, Virgin Experience Days can oblige. Luxury chocolate workshops, tapas cooking lessons, a wine-tasting masterclass: you name it, they have it all. 

And don’t forget, Virgin Red members have an extra crunch of the biscuit with 10 points for every £1 spent on foodie forays – or indeed any experiences – at Virgin Experience Days,

Do the words “balanced diet” equal a chocolate in both hands? If so, you’ll delight in Selfridges’ collection of the good stuff. The famous department store could rival Willy Wonka’s factory with its edit of chocolate-y greatness, featuring everything from white chocolate tennis balls (with a marshmallow centre) to praline sushi, pink champagne truffles and lavish presentation boxes from Ladurée. For an extra sweet touch, you’ll earn up to 9 points with every one £1 spent via Virgin Red.

Earn points on luxury hampers

Fortnum and Mason have some of the best hampers in the business – so if you’re looking to up your picnic game this summer, or celebrate a special occasion, this is the place to come. 

Stock up on posh chutneys, creamy cheeses, salted caramel biscuits and more, all presented in Fortnum and Mason’s trademark wicker hampers with a box to suit every celebration. Shopping here is a beautiful experience, made all the better by the fact that you can earn 3 points for every £1 spent with Virgin Red. Get in.
