NEW HFP COMPETITION – Win an Apple Watch AND 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles with Rocketmiles!

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

Today I am launching a fantastic new competition which will run all week on Head for Points.   In terms of being a ‘must win’ prize, I doubt I could have secured anything more exciting at the moment.

One lucky Head for Points reader will, at midnight on Friday, win a brand new Apple Watch plus 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles!

With an Apple Watch selling for £479, and roughly 1p of value from each Virgin Atlantic mile, you are looking at a prize pot of £1,000!

The sponsor of this generosity is hotel booking site Rocketmiles.  It has just launched a new partnership with Virgin Flying Club and wants you to know all about it.

About Rocketmiles

Rocketmiles is a specialist hotel booking site which allows you to earn a substantial amount of airline miles with every room booking.

The company has a deep inventory of rooms available across the world.  Both cancellable and non-cancellable room are available (all bookings must be prepaid but cancellable rooms are fully refundable).

Each booking earns you a generous amount of miles in your chosen airline programme.  Whilst this competition focusses on promoting the new Rocketmiles partnership with Virgin Flying Club, they also work with 29 other airline programmes.

As with any third party hotel booking, you will usually not earn any stay credit or points from the hotel stay where you stay.  You may get your elite status recognised, depending on the hotel.  This is, of course, offset by the generous amount of miles that Rocketmiles will deposit in your airline account after your stay!

Celebrating the new Virgin Atlantic partnership

To promote their new partnership with Virgin Atlantic, Rocketmiles is offering 3,000 bonus Virgin Flying Club miles to new customers when they make their first booking.

This is valid on any booking of any size.  It is on top of the standard amount of Virgin Flying Club miles you will earn.  This is clearly a very attractive deal – and if you book a cheap one night stay to trigger the miles, it will be an excellent deal!

The terms and conditions of the ‘first booking bonus’ can be found here.  You have until July 31st to make your booking and the stay can be for a date even further into the future.

For clarity, you do not need to make a booking to enter the competition.

How can I win the Apple Watch and 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles?!

It is very simple indeed.  It really could not be easier.

Enter your email address and that’s it!  You’re entered!

Please read the rules carefully!

The full rules for the competition are here.

Here is a summary of the important bits, although please note that the official rules take precedence over this summary:

You must be at least 21 years old to enter

There is one prize consisting of an Apple Watch (probably black as in the photo but the style may vary) and 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles

Strictly one entry per person

Entries will close at midnight on Friday, London time

There are NO geographic restrictions – the competition is open to Head for Points readers wherever they live

There is NO requirement to make a hotel booking via Rocketmiles in order to enter

Existing Rocketmiles customers can enter the competition, although they cannot earn 3,000 bonus Virgin from their first booking

Rocketmiles is responsible for fulfilling your prize.  Neither Head for Points or Virgin Atlantic are responsible.  Employees of Virgin Atlantic cannot enter (sorry Katie!).

Good luck!  The winner will be announced on Head for Points 7-10 days after the closing date and I will remind you again about the closing date before Friday.

    Entry form doesn’t work on Android 🙁

    • Hywel says:

      It won’t work on the mobile site which is accessed by default on Android. Tick the box in Chrome that says “request desktop site” and then the full site will load.

    • Worked on my Android

  2. Did the competitions people get rid of that rule about non-skill competitions (that’s raffles, Raffles) only being for charities or are Rocketmiles just rebellious?

  3. I just checked some random dates against lateroims and there were at least 15 hotels on laterooms half the price of those on rocketmiles. I’ll be giving them a miss

  4. David Barron says:

    Another great competition Rob. Fantastic! Plus a great way to boost Virgin points now I’ve ditched BA. Fingers crossed!

  5. Corrine says:

    Thank you ! fingers crossed, if I win I can upgrade us from cattle class to PE 😉

    • Frenske says:

      Pizza Express!?

      • Corrine says:

        lol ….virgin premium economy seats ! ….but I wish Virgin did ‘pizza express seats’ this would beat the airline meals hands down ! 😉

  6. Fenny says:

    Huzzah for Virgin miles 🙂

  7. Dave H says:

  8. Morning guys O/T sorry, I am trying to book award flights on alaska 1st or 2nd Jan to 4th or 5th Jan from SEA or PDX to OGG or HNL depending what is available.

  9. thomas says:

    Works fine and well done Raffles, that is an excellent prize on offer.

  10. Doesn’t work on Chrome. Box just sits there.

    • Mmmm working now

    • I had something similar in Firefox and Chrome, the box just sat there while a wheel spun in the background, I got an e-mail welcoming me to Rocketmiles though so I assume that something happened!

  11. David says:

    Link doesn’t work. When you try to enter your email window closes and opens a different window with a different rocket miles promo

  12. Lindsey Morris says:

    Appears to be working 🙂

  13. I’m also having problems – the entry doesn’t seem to be accepted – I can see a spinner underneath the modal window but it never moves on.

    Don’t want to keep trying in case I’m submitting multiple entries and disqualifying myself.

    Rob – do you have an email address at RM to contact about this?

  14. Easy to enter. Good luck, everyone.

  15. Ian Jones says:
