250 Free Miles from Virgin Atlantic Flying Club

If you collect miles from Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, you are probably interested in receiving 250 miles for free.  All it takes is thirty seconds of mouse clicking…

You simply need to visit Shops Away, the online shopping portal that offers Flying Club miles instead of “cashback”. You can jump there by clicking here.

Once you’ve logged in, you need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and click on “Miles Finder”.

Once there, you should see this banner…

Miles Finder is a toolbar that alerts you to opportunities to earn Flying Club miles by visiting the Shops Away shopping portal first. A useful reminder if you find yourself on the verge of purchasing something without having investigated cashback options first…

Now perhaps the best news for those wanting to avoid clutter on their computer / browsers… My attempt to download and install the toolbar failed with both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Yet I still received my free 250 miles a few days later. Perfect…

    I followed the instructions and came to the Screen box “Continue to download Mile Finder”.
    I clicked the box, a new browser tab opened but is completely blank.
    (I am using IE10 – the ‘blank screen’ problem is a frequent occurrence !!)
    I’ll check my account balance in a few days to see what happened.

    Their link for the Opera addon is broken (404). I assume Virgin’s IT team have never thought of actually testing things before they put them live.

    The Miles Finder toolbar has not been downloadable for either Firefox or Opera for over 12 months now. It did work when I had older versions of the browsers installed.

    Thanks very much Craig. This worked for me as well. I simply followed your instructions, downloaded the toolbar, but didn’t actually install it in my browser. Miles arrived 5 days later.
