This offer comes up from time to time but on the Nectar app is showing 1000 bonus points (base value £5) with Virgin Trains East coast.

So if you are looking at a cheap way to earn some Nectar points steps as follows:

  • Go to nectar.com/off…724 to see if you have the offer. If you have it, then follow the link to visit the Virgin East Coast website (need to make sure your Nectar card is linked)

  • Proceed to book a single child fare of £1+ for dates between today and 3rd April. Needs to be £1 as spend under this amount may cause the bonus points not to track. Please note it has to be a Virgin East coast train

  • As an example Edinburgh to Waverley (selected times) is for £1.20. Note needs to have the Virgin trains symbol next to it and needs to be an East Coast train.

  • Proceed to book and choose free collection or free mobile tickets

FAQ's adapted from a previous thread (thanks @LankyChris@Chanchi32 & @tungle106 )

Which train should I book?
The cheapest ticket I could find was £1.20 for a child from Edinburgh to Haymarket at selected times (example in pic above) making a profit of £3.80 worth of nectar points.

Can I book any train between these stations?
Make sure it is definitely a East Coast train service you're booking so that you qualify, not a different train operator. Look out for the Virgin train symbol

There may be cheaper available journeys between different stations but make sure spend is at least £1 as may cause issues with bonus points

Which website do I book at?
If you are using the suggested journey above use virgintrainseastcoast.com/

How to avoid postage costs
Select 'Ticket on Departure at the station' and select your local station to collect tickets from to avoid paying postage. Alternatively choose mobile tickets.

Do I need to collect the tickets?
Has been reported that you dont need to actually collect your tickets but up to you

Does anyone actually get the points from these offers?
Yes has worked for members in the past

When will I get the points
T&Cs below state within 28 days of ending the promo which I make as 1st May

What happens if I don't get the points by then?
Contact nectar customer support who are usually good about adding missing points: nectar.com/con…ct)

Is there a minimum spend?
Not in the T&Cs but it might be £1 to ensure you get at least 1 nectar point for your purchase so that nectar can track the offer.

I know some people have complained that sometimes point don't reflect for them, FWIW chatting with CS has always resolved the issue for me.

Hope it helps someone.

Shambles of a company. Offers rarely track, every time you go on to webchat with "Johnny" from Bangalore, it has to be "investigated".
Something should be done with them, fraudsters.

No probs vassy, gotta vote based on the fact that if a deal works for you or not -:) shame you had bad experience ther
and me
I have the offer on Nectar but does not work
I tried the Daily Mail sign up offer, 1000 points, never to be seen so maybe not worth the aggro with a virgin offer.
Only 250 points on mine. I have done this offer before though, so maybe that's why.
