It’s the most wonderful time of year – especially if you’re a member of Virgin Red and can earn points on your Christmas shopping. 

Virgin’s new rewards club has a sleigh-load of great partner brands to earn Virgin Points with, so you can top up your balance whenever you buy from your favourite retailers. 

The more you spend, the more points you rack up: which means your festive shopping list becomes a happy hunting ground not only for your loved ones but for you, too. 

By shopping online through Virgin Red’s specially selected partners, you’ll earn points for yourself in the process. Points that can be spent on anything from afternoon tea or a flight to St Lucia

Just like that, your Christmas shopping becomes that bit more extraordinary, with rewards that cover spectacular experiences, sun-drenched holidays, simple pleasures and more. 

Are you in? Get inspired with just a few great gift ideas for all tastes and budgets that you can earn points on with Virgin Red, below. That Caribbean hammock has your name on...
