Virgin Flying Club’s online shopping portal, Virgin ‘Shops Away’, is offering boosted earnings at a wide range of popular retailers and travel businesses.
The earning rates (and bonuses) vary depending on the retailer, but some such as Evans Cycles, are offering as much as 4x the standard rate:
From a travel perspective, 6 Virgin Miles per £1 spent at Booking dotcom is pretty good. For comparison, cashback rates at TopCashback and Quidco are just 3-4% at time of writing.
That said, you can pick up 8 Avios per £1 over at the Avios estore, so it always pays to shop around.
Don’t forget that you can still earn Virgin Miles through ‘Shops Away’ when shopping in-store at Waitrose. That’s nowhere near as good as it used to be, but still worth knowing about if you’re a frequent Waitrose shopper.
Always remember to quickly check what the cashback sites and the BA/Avios shopping portals etc are offering too, as there might be other promos that offer better value for some retailers, despite Virgin offering boosted rates.
