Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win one million Membership Rewards points and one million Virgin Points!

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

Two easy competitions to enter:

Win 1 million American Express Membership Rewards points

If you have an American Express Preferred Reward Gold card, American Express is keen for you to download the Amex Experiences app.

One cardholder will win 1 million points simply for trying it out.

Holders of The Platinum Card have had access to the Amex Experiences app for some time, making it very easy (perhaps too easy, given subsequent demand) to apply for tickets to Platinum events. Gold cardmembers now get access to their own events, offers and competitions.

If you have Amex Gold and have downloaded the Amex Experiences app, or do so, you will see a form in the app to complete.

You need to submit this by 7th December for your chance to win 1 million Membership Rewards points (worth 1 million Avios, of course, or lots of other bits and pieces).

Win 1 million Virgin Points

Not to be outdone, Virgin Red is offering its own competition to win 1 million Virgin Points.

There will be three winners and you have until 11th December to enter.

Open the Virgin Red app and you should see a link somewhere on the home page. There is one quiz question to answer (it’s not tricky) and that’s it. You don’t even need to input your personal details.

    I am a supplementary cardholder on my wife’s Gold card. I assume only the main cardholder can enter the promotion?

    • Rob says:

      Good question. I would assume if you can log into the app using your Amex registration details then it would count.

      • Indy500 says:

        Doesn’t work. See this at last stage:
        “I confirm that I am the main account holder on an active and valid American Express® Preferred Rewards Gold Card *”
        Oh well… 😉

    Why would you need to enter your personal details when you are logged into an account you created by providing your personal details?
