Virgin Red and Tesco are — once again — making it easy for members to earn bonus Virgin Points. The two have announced that members can earn 2,000 bonus Virgin Points when you sign up to have your Clubcard vouchers automatically exchanged to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.

This promotion for 2,000 bonus Virgin Points when switching to automatically convert your Clubcard vouchers to Virgin is only available for a limited time. You’ll need to set your preferences to auto-convert by 13 September 2021.

The existing rate of Clubcard vouchers to Virgin Points is such that £2.50 of Clubcard vouchers will get you 625 Virgin Points.

As an example, say you have £25 worth of Tesco Clubcard vouchers that you’re looking to turn into Virgin Points. If you sign up to have them automatically converted to Virgin going forward, you’d get a total of 8,250 Virgin Points for doing so. Based on TPG U.K.’s valuations, those Virgin Points are worth £99.

Note that according to the terms and conditions of the offer, you need a minimum of £1.50 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers to enrol in auto-conversion. Additionally, this must be the first time you sign up for auto-conversion in order to get the 2,000 bonus points, and you must remain enrolled in auto-conversion until at least 21 October 2021.

As part of this offer, members will be entered to win 40,000 Virginia Points when you enrol to auto-convert.

Notably, earlier this year, British Airways and Tesco ended their relationship. As of 18 January 2021, Clubcard holders can no longer be able to turn their vouchers into Avios. Virgin Atlantic is now the exclusive airline partner of Tesco Clubcard, and it looks to be something the Virgin Red programme is looking to capitalise on.

If you have a Tesco Clubcard, it could be a good time to switch to automatically converting vouchers to Flying Club. The 2,000 Virgin Points is a solid incentive to do so. To do so, sign into your Clubcard account, scroll down to Voucher Schemes and select Virgin Atlantic.

In case you missed it, Virgin Red launched officially earlier this year and is now available to everyone. With it, the cumulative Virgin Point currency used across most Virgin brands allows customers more flexibility with earning and redeeming their points. For example, you can redeem your Virgin Points for a Virgin Voyages cruise or a Greggs sausage roll.
