I am sneaking this in as a ‘day’ article because the arbitrage expires tonight!
If you have a Virgin Flying Club account, you probably got an email today promoting their new Virgin Trains deal. Basically:
…. and select Flying Club miles instead of Nectar points as your reward …..
…. you will receive 500 Virgin Flying Club miles with your first transaction during this period
…. which will be credited by 31st August
The reason you book tonight is that the Virgin West Coast sale ends at midnight.
And, during that sale, you can buy train tickets for as little as £4. London to Birmingham is advertised at that price, one way.
So …. go to the Virgin West Coast website, book yourself a £4 train ticket, add in your Flying Club number and hopefully 508 Virgin Flying Club miles will arrive by the end of August.
Of course, if you actually need to book a West Coast or East Coast train ticket before the end of July, there is no rush!
