Most Head for Points readers know that you can earn frequent flyer miles, in Virgin Flying Club, when you shop in-store at Waitrose.
(If you didn’t know that, read our article on earning Virgin miles at Waitrose here.)
Another supermarket deal has now launched.
You will earn miles in Virgin Flying Club for every £1 you spend in-store at Morrisons.
Full details are here.
You need to log in to see how many Virgin miles you will earn. It will vary from person to person. I get:
For purchases under £20, you earn a flat 1 Flying Club mile per £1
For £20+, you need to log in to your Virgin Flying Club account and check. I am currently earning 8 Flying Club miles per £1 until 26th February.
This is very generous.
In theory, you cannot earn on:
“Morrison’s cafes, petrol stations, garden centres, pharmacies, cash offices, gift cards, flower world, seasonal stores or on dry cleaning.”
However, since gift card purchases are processed at standard tills, I struggle to see how you will not be awarded the miles.
This offer is part of the Virgin Atlantic in-store shopping scheme. To sign up, you need to register your credit and debit cards via the link above. Make sure you register your partners cards as well if they are also likely to visit Morrisons.
If you don’t already have a Virgin Flying Club account, you may want to sign up purely to take advantage of this deal. At the very worse, you can redeem 12,500 miles for a £50 voucher valid at many Virgin Group companies or for Theatre Tokens. It is also worth remembering that you can transfer Virgin Flying Club miles into Hilton Honors points (at 2:3) and IHG Rewards Club points (at 1:1) with a minimum transfer of 10,000 miles.
