8000 Virgin Points opening Virgin Money ISA

This is what you can earn:

New customers to Virgin Money

Being a ‘new customer’ means that you have none of the following with Virgin Money:  a Stocks and Shares ISA, a personal current account, personal savings account, personal credit card, Investment Account, cash ISA, personal mortgage, personal loan or pension.

  • £2,000 – £4,999 – 1,000 Virgin Points
  • £5,000 – £9,999 – 2,000 Virgin Points
  • £10,000 – £19,999 – 10,000 Virgin Points
  • £20,000 – £49,999 – 20,000 Virgin Points
  • £50,000+ – 50,000 Virgin Points

Existing Virgin Money customers

If you had a Stocks and Shares ISA, a personal current account, personal savings account, personal credit card, Investment Account, cash ISA, personal mortgage, personal loan or pension on 15th January 2024, you can earn AN ADDITIONAL:

  • £2,000+ – 1,000 Virgin Points

…. for a total bonus of up to 51,000 Virgin Points.

The rules

Here are the full rules for the offer:

  • you must open your Stocks & Shares ISA by 30th April
  • you must invest at least £2,000 by that date OR submit a transfer application to your current provider by 30th April (transfer must complete by 31st July)
  • you must keep your deposit in place until 31st October
  • you will be emailed a promo code for your Virgin Points in November 2024 which you need to activate via the Virgin Red app

Obviously the maximum amount of new money you can invest in one tax year is £20,000. Anyone who wants to transfer £50,000 to receive the full bonus must transfer an existing ISA.

This is obviously an investment and so could lead to the loss of your capital.

As always with financial issues, take proper advice if necessary.

You can apply here.
