Virgin Red Boosts Earning Opportunities for Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Club Members
Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Cub members in the UK can now join Virgin Red with the option of linking accounts for more ways to earn and spend Virgin Points. Virgin Red is Virgin’s new reward program where members can earn on everyday purchases across the company.
On Monday (February 8, 2021), Virgin Atlantic announced that Virgin Atlantic Flying Club UK members can now join Virgin Red, with the option to link accounts for more ways to earn and spend Virgin Points. Virgin Red is the company’s new rewards club where members can earn points on everyday spending and save across the Virgin family brands and beyond. New and existing UK Flying Club members can enroll in Virgin Red and will receive 500 bonus Virgin points when they complete their first earn in the app, providing the points are earned and credited before July 31, 2021. Virgin Red introduces many new partners, allowing Flying Club members to access everyday treats and more experiences, some from only 200 points.
In Monday’s announcement, Virgin Atlantic’s Chief Digital and Marketing Officer, Siobhan Fitzpatrick said,
“We’re committed to rewarding those who choose to fly with Virgin Atlantic and we know how important Flying Club is to members old and new, so I’m thrilled to launch such an exciting proposition by adding extra benefits through Virgin Red for our loyal members. If you’re a frequent flyer or simply looking to join Flying Club, Virgin Red makes it easier to spend on the everyday, whether that’s using points from a family holiday for your daily Greggs coffee or collecting points by switching your energy account towards that lucrative cabin upgrade, our new partnership provides even more opportunities for our members to enjoy their hard earned rewards.”
Also commenting on the new program partnership, Virgin Red’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kelly Best, added.
“As the UK continues to be under a third national lockdown, we want to give Flying Club members the opportunity to enjoy rewards on the ground whilst there are (temporarily) fewer opportunities to earn and spend Virgin Points in the sky. Flying Club members can earn Virgin Points with more Virgin brands and carefully selected partners with Virgin Red and of course spend them on a range of rewards from everyday treats to extraordinary experiences or donations to good causes – as well as flights and holidays of course from Virgin Atlantic.”
UK Flying Club members will be able to earn points through Virgin Atlantic flights, switching their energy to Octopus Energy, Shops Away, Marks & Spencer, Etsy or by using the Virgin Atlantic Reward Credit Card. Virgin points can then be redeemed for everything from a from a Greggs Sausage Roll to theatre tickets through London Theatre Direct, lucrative seat upgrades, Clubhouse access, Virgin Wines and even educational lessons through Virgin Experience Days.
Finally, for the first time, members will be able to use points at select small businesses or to support charitable giving through Virgin Money Giving. Virgin Red also offers a ‘Points for Good’ category, where members can support eight national and regional charities and members will also be able to support Virgin StartUp companies by purchasing their products.
