Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win One Million Virgin Points with Virgin Red and HfP!

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

For just the second time in Head for Points history, we are giving away one million points to one lucky reader!

We have teamed up with Virgin Red to run an exclusive competition for HfP readers.

Virgin Red is Virgin’s Group-wide rewards club where you can earn and / or spend points across Virgin companies & other brands you love, including:

  • Virgin Atlantic
  • Virgin Voyages
  • Virgin Limited Edition
  • Virgin Experience Days
  • Virgin Hotels
  • Virgin Wines
  • The Virgin Red Room at the AO Arena, Manchester
  • John Lewis
  • M&S
  • SpaceNK
  • Bloom and Wild
  • Lego
  • …. and Greggs!

When you sign up to Virgin Red, you can earn and spend Virgin Points with Virgin Red’s partners. All of your Virgin Points sit in one place rather than being spread out across the separate companies.

It’s free to join Virgin Red and your points will never expire.

If you already have a Virgin Flying Club account, you can join Virgin Red and link the two accounts. Your existing points balance will show in your Virgin Red account.

What does one million Virgin Points get you?

With 1,000,000 points our lucky winner can call the shots and choose from hundreds of rewards on Virgin Red!

Some of the bigger rewards won’t empty your points balance. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, you have the opportunity to stay in unique retreats and luxury hotels around the world with Virgin Limited Edition.

Mont Rochelle

You could stay at Mont Rochelle, South Africa and enjoy the finest of wines in an idyllic setting, available for two from just 110,000 points for three nights. Wind down with a soothing dip in the outdoor pool or a trip to the spa for some TLC. For the more adventurous, take a hike or rent a bike and explore 100 acres of breath-taking scenery.

Other Virgin Limited Edition experiences include:

  • Kasbah Tamadot – a Moroccan retreat in the High Atlas Mountains, from 220,000 points for three nights based on two people sharing
  • Ulusaba – a luxury safari lodge in the private Sabi Sand game reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park, from 540,000 points for three nights based on two people sharing
  • Mahali Mzuri – an even wilder 12-tented safari camp in in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, from 540,000 points for three nights based on two people sharing

Wherever you’re going, you can use your Virgin Points to redeem flights on Virgin Atlantic or any of Virgin Atlantic’s new SkyTeam partners including Delta Air Lines, Air France, KLM, Korean Air, Vietnam Airlines and more. A long-haul redemption in Upper Class will cost you between 75,000 and 155,000 Virgin Points per person, return, plus taxes and charges.

If you’d rather redeem closer to home, you can spend your points on concert tickets for the Virgin Red Room at the AO Arena in Manchester, West End theatre tickets with London Theatre Direct, or any number of Virgin Experience Days experiences, such as a Top Gun flying experience in a real fighter jet.

You can also spend your Virgin Points on cases of wine with Virgin Wines or, if you’re feeling peckish, a Greggs sausage roll!

How to join Virgin Red

As we’re giving away Virgin Points, you’ll need a Virgin Red account to enter the competition and to redeem the points if you win.

If you are already a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club member, Virgin Red unlocks more ways to earn and spend points. All you need to do is join Virgin Red and link your existing Flying Club account. You will also be able to monitor your Virgin Points transactions via the Virgin Red app instead of having to log in to the Flying Club website.

If you are not a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club member, Virgin Red is still for you. You can join and access hundreds of ways to earn and spend with Virgin companies and beyond. Rewards start from just 200 Virgin Points so you don’t need to be a big spender or a big flyer to get yourself a treat.

Virgin Red is free to join and open to anyone in the UK or US aged 18+.

  • Geoff says:

    The Top Gun experience is neither a fighter, nor a jet – it is in a T67, a piston engined, propeller-driven aircraft.

  • Aron says:

    Many thanks for the competition.

  • ThinkSquare says:

    “Please note: we ask for your date of birth to verify that you are over 18.”
    Is that all you need it for, or does it need to match the one we used when signing up for Virgin Red?

    • Rob says:

      It’s not linked back to Virgin Red. It’s purely a check which allows your entry to be submitted. I’m not sure it is even stored.

  • Sam says:
