If you are sat on a pile of Virgin Points, here is a chance to redeem them for something a little different.
Virgin Red has commissioned 1,000 Virgin-branded Crosley turntables. To quote:
“Each limited edition record player is individually-numbered from one to 1,000 with beautiful imagery including the infamous Tubular Bells symbol and iconic Virgin balloons, aeroplanes and slogans. The brass-copper foiled finish is complemented with exclusive-to-Virgin brass-copper buttons, and a one-off collaboration stamp on the front.”
The full specifications are:
- 3-Speed Turntable (33 ⅓, 45 & 78 RPM)
- Built-in Full-Range Stereo Speakers
- Adjustable Pitch Control
- Cueing Lever
- Aux Input
- RCA Output
- Headphone Jack
- 35cm x 26cm x 11.99cm
The turntables cost 20,000 Virgin Points including delivery (presumably UK addresses only). Given the c £100 pricing of typical Crosley turntables – albeit this is a limited edition – the value is in line with other Virgin Points redemptions at around 0.5p.
You can order via the Virgin Red app or website. If you are not already registered for Virgin Red, you should download the app to your smartphone and follow the instructions to link your Virgin Flying Club account.
