1000 bonus nectar points for any Virgin Trains booking (from £1.25)

Now that nectar have moved all promotional details behind the login screen, I can’t guarantee this offer will be available to everyone. However I currently have an offer of 1000 bonus nectar points for ‘any train booking’ with Virgin Trains (east or west coast).

While nectar points are often mocked for their redemption value, 1000 points should always worth at least £5 – and all my recent redemptions have been at 1p value (or better) making 1000 points worth £10.

And you can book Virgin Trains tickets from just £1.25:

A popular cheap route is Birmingham to Coventry, which comes down to just £1.25 with a railcard. Of course, you don’t have to actually travel.

The offer (if you are eligible) can be found here:


Although you need to be logged into your nectar account.

Bookings must be made by tomorrow (Wednesday 25 Jan 2017) with travel between 20 Jan – 31 Mar 2017

Are you eligible? do you have any other variations of the offer?

(Just last week there was apparently 500 point offer limited to the west coast franchise, the offer listed above, if eligible appears to explicitly cover both).

  1. I not only have that offer, but also another for 250 points for an East-Coast only booking before 08 Feb 2017 – https://www.nectar.com/offers/66B0F02721

    That said, neither my last Virgin Trains East Coast bonus points offer, nor my last GWR bonus points offer have posted to my Nectar account. They’re pretty good about base points, seems pretty terrible on the bonus ones 🙁

    • Interesting, I don’t have that one (and I can’t access it to read the T&C). Wonder if they will stack for you.
      Have to say, when I’ve chased missing points recently they have given them to me. (Had to be escalated, but they appeared without notification later).

  2. T&C reads:

    1. To qualify for this promotion you must book your journey on or before the expiry date, however travel does not need to fall within these dates.

    2. To be eligible for the bonus Nectar points you must book your Virgin Trains East Coast tickets at virgintrainseastcoast.com.

    3. Bonus Nectar points will be awarded on the first booking made during the promotional period. No further points for multiple bookings are available.

    4. Bonus points will not be applied if the booking is cancelled.

    5. Usual Nectar terms and conditions apply and can be found by visiting http://www.virgintrainseastcoast.com/rewards/rewards-terms-and-conditions/.

    East Coast Mainline Company, Friars Bridge Court, 41-45 Blackfriars Road, London, SE1 8NZ

    Coupon ID: 662721

    I’d guess that means it should stack…
