Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn Virgin Flying Club miles with a new Virgin Money life insurance deal

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

You can now earn Flying Club miles with Virgin Money life insurance.

(EDIT: this offer has been extended to 4th September)

Until 28th March Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members who take out a life insurance policy from Virgin Money will receive up to 25,000 Flying Club miles.

The number of miles you can earn varies by the monthly premium you choose:

The small print says that the miles will arrive up to 60 days after the sixth consecutive monthly payment.  You will therefore be paying £300 to earn 25,000 miles if you pick a £50 per month policy.

It isn’t worth taking out unnecessary insurance purely for the miles.  On the other hand, if you are currently paying for cover and can get a similar policy from Virgin Money for a similar price, this could be an easy way of picking up 25,000 miles.

The application website is here.
