Virgin East Coast Trains Superfly Seat Sale - many Leeds to London £5, Newcastle to London £10 and Edinburgh to London £15 each way includes peak times

Found 4th Jan 2016
Book by 8 Jan for travel from 5 January until 23 March. Many seats very very cheap. All routes on East Coast, so can also do say, Doncaster to London. Lots and lots of trains every day including ones which leave early in the morning, e.g. Leaving Leeds before 9am to arrive in London around 11.

Railcard discounts do not apply but most the the fares are cheaper than with railcard anyway.

Not sure you'll get a £5 fare at peak morning travel time, but good luck with that
Are these not normal prices for advance fares?
You can't click on it, it is greyed out. It does say there is some peak availability, but I guess they have either all gone or there are hardly any routes for peak.
Thanks I'll have a look at some dates later
Unsurprisingly not for half term which is when I need to go to Edinburgh! Still some good prices!

I'd say it probably only requires basic intelligence to realise he is suggesting it is good for people looking to travel from London to Edinburgh return.

Or were you being sarcastic? Seems a bit of a pointless remark to make if you were being sarcastic.
Already posted? Or is this something different?

I booked a return trip from Newcastle to Gatwick before Christmas (actually travelling next week) and it seems the fares quoted now for the same journey are higher.

I would strongly advise if you're doing say Leeds to Cornwall book Leeds to London with this offer and a single advance London to wherever in Cornwall. Will likely be tons cheaper than. Using cross country and on much nicer less cramped longer less smelly trains.

They are slightly better than some advanced fares, as far as I can tell, on the routes I've compared.

However.. you don't appear to get the railcard discount on top.. making these prices dearer if you do have a railcard.

For the train, absolutely. Always worth looking at flying if you're travelling that route though, often around £20 return with Ryanair.
I booked a newcastle to London trip for March for 2 costing just under £120, could of got them here for £40!!! Heat added and I'm burnt!!
Absolute bargain. booked 3 x london - edinburgh tix for £30 each. Thanks OP. Finally a sensible price for me to explore the nether regions of the UK for once.

I think my point is quite clear to right thinking people generally.

Right thinking people would understand that the fare being discussed was clearly not relevant for people looking to go to Cornwall so wouldn't need to make such a comment.
Awww man. Already booked my trip for the end of Feb costing just over £300. Could have had it for £80.
Just had to havit, a tenner each way Newcastle to London Great price

They are funding these promotions by massively increasing most advance fares. London - Dundee (booked 3 months in advance) has increased by 150% since Virgin took over.
