Yes, from the 5th of September 2023, you can now buy points to unlock rewards more quickly through Virgin Red as well as through Virgin Atlantic Flying Club. Whether you want to bag yourself concert tickets in the Virgin Red Room at the Manchester AO Arena or need to top up your balance to buy flights for a last-minute getaway*, there’s now no reason to miss out.
*Points should be credited to your account within 24 hours, though this may take longer in some cases.
Points cost £15/$25 for every 1,000 points plus every transaction comes with a one-off £15/$22 transaction fee. So, if you buy 1,000 points you will pay £30/$47, if you buy 5,000 points you will pay £90/$147 and if you buy 10,000 points you will pay £165/$272.
You can buy points in increments of 1,000 points, subject to an overall limit of 100,000 points in each calendar year.
You have the right to cancel any buy points transaction for up to 14 days after the date of the transaction, provided that none of the points have been redeemed. Please see the Virgin Red Programme terms and conditions for details on how to do this. If any of the points have been redeemed you will not be entitled to a refund for any of those points including those that have not been redeemed. Once the 14 day cooling off period has expired, any points bought and received are non-refundable and non-transferable, except as expressly permitted under the Virgin Red Programme terms and conditions.
- If points are to be used for a specific reward it is recommended that current availability of that reward is checked first.
