Found 15th Dec 2017
I have personally done this 3 times to make sure it works before making my post or 'repost'. Once you get the hang of it, it won't take more than 1 minute to buy a ticket.

Put a note in your calendar to remind you about the bonus points.

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

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

  • Go to nectar.com/off…225 to see if you have the offer. If you have it, then follow the link to visit the Virgin Trains website (need to make sure your Nectar card is linked, you can add your nectar card just before payment)

  • Proceed to book a single child fare of £1+ for dates between today and 17th Dec. 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 West Coast train.

  • As an example Birmingham International to Birmingham New Street child single is £1.55 on Friday 15th December 10.51, 11.13, etc

  • Note needs to have the Virgin trains symbol next to it and needs to be a West Coast train

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

FAQ's adapted from a previous thread (thanks LankyChris and Chanchi32)

Which train should I book?
The cheapest ticket I could find was £1.55 for a child from Birmingham International to Birmingham New Street at selected times making a profit of £3.45 worth of nectar points. his needs to have the Virgin symbol by it. The virgin trains are at selected times e.g.10.51, 11.13, etc

Can I book any train between these stations?
Make sure it is definitely a West 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 virgintrains.co.uk/

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 17th December

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.

Yes I booked once didn't get the point
Mine was 1000 points last night and now its only 500!! They obviously have latched on. Not worth the effort for less than a £1 profit.
It worked on my first did not on my second.
