  1. Hi does anyone feel that this is going a bit flat. They promised new and exciting things were in the pipe-line, but where are they? Even the Reverse Auction has gone with no replacement. Jackie

    1. Hi Jackie,

      It doesn’t cost me anything and its a bit of fun. Loads of people do win and a couple of people who follow my blog have won big prizes. I think the reverse auction wasn’t a great structure for the Virgin Red app as people weren’t on there to spend money.



      The Reverend

      1. Hi. I wasn’t complaining about not winning, just that it has gone a little flat. Same thing each day and each week. I remember last years twelve days of Christmas was good fun. The reverse auction was really for people who didn’t mind spending a pound or two for a great prize, it was a choice for us to decide if wanted to participate or not, there was no pressure. Maybe with the results from the forum they have been operating they will make it a little bit more fun to play. Sometimes you are only on the site for around a minute and you have finished for the day. Thanks Rev. Jackie

  2. I have been taking part in a focus group/forum with VR and, after asking people’s preferences, ideas etc, I think that there will be a pretty good revamp soon.

  3. Bonfire Night Quiz answers:
    Guy Fawkes Night
    5th November

    Hope there’s another ‘code’ for Bonfire Night like Halloween.

  4. Can hardly contain my excitement – I won a VIP Vault prize from last month! No idea what it actually is yet as will be posted in a week or so! Wow.

    1. Hi Johnt,

      Always great to hear about another winner. I really should do a page with just the details of what peopel who follow my blog have won.



      The Reverend

    2. Don’t build your hopes too high – I won August’s VIP vault and like you I felt very excited – weeks went by and I hadn’t received anything so I dropped the VR team an email, they said it would be with me by end of week, but after two more weeks I had to email them again. I finally got a £15 Amazon voucher emailed to me. The whole experience did not feel VIP. I know the VIP vault is different every month but most draws where the last prize is significantly less value to the rest refer to it as a boobie prize not a VIP prize!!
      I hope you have a better experience.

      1. I agree Ang. Maybe it’s worth another email stating your feelings! I’ve won a whole box (12 bottles) before now fairly recently and I’m sure it was a VIP vault prize!! You never know, they might feel guilty and have a rethink on tour prize.

      2. Ang, I had the same experience in April after winning the March VIP vault. I was so excited but didn’t receive anything for several weeks. After emailing I was sent an Amazon voucher which like you said, is not very VIP…
        I mean, it was free and I enjoy playing along every day but considering the commitment and loyalty to virgin required to get into the VIP vault, I was expecting a little more.

        1. Argh Emma thanks for sharing that – it makes me feel slightly better that it wasn’t just an unfortunate month when I won. I know I won’t be stressing about the last few points to get into the last vault ever again!

          Makes me wonder if there’s actually a prize assigned to the last vault at all, it all feels a bit haphazard to me!
          Fingers crossed that our next win is a bit more exciting and worthy of the Virgin name!

          Good luck!

          1. My VIP vault prize was a £25 Amazon voucher – I too was very disappointed as I looked forward to the postman delivering something, even a bottle of champagne! Seeing now that some people are only receiving £10 and £15 is very disappointing. I would have preferred £25 of Virgin airmiles.

          2. Hi Julia,

            The VIP Prizes have never been the ‘top’ prize but I do think the name is a little misleading!



            The Reverend

      3. I too won a vip back at the beginning of the year. Eventually got a voucher for a tenner I think, but only after chasing.
        Agree, vip prize should be a one off, money can’t buy jobbie. Doesn’t have to be valuable, just something that cannot ordinarily be purchased!

      4. Yes overwhelming excitement as the VIP prize was a Naked marshmallow kit (6 marshmallows and a little flame warmer in case anyone getting the wrong idea). But for a free comp, better than nothing! Mind you 40k miles would be fun!

    3. I’ve been doing the app for over a year and have won 2 bottles of fiz, 2 ice cream vouchers and a pair of virgin sunglasses. Not bad for free and fun with it

    1. Hi Thalia,

      Thanks for the note – I’m loving my new header! And it 100% looks like me IRL!



      The Reverend

    1. Hi Zipster,

      I added these to the blog.

      I thought they might give us some more bonus points on the 5th November but they didn’t.

      I guess the next batch of bonus points will be during December.



      The Reverend

  5. Great to see when someone wins something. I’ve been doing Virgin Red app since it was launched and won exactly nothing to date but no complaints as it is free and only takes a couple of minutes to complete every morning. Given the number of people now taking part every day only a very small percentage can be winners and I keep my fingers crossed that it might be my turn one day.

  6. Kendal Mountain Festival quiz answers
    1) 14-17 November
    2) Four
    3) £500 holiday voucher

    Congratulations Johnt!
    Love the new header Reverend!

  7. I have just downloaded the latest App update on my iPhone running iOS 13.2.2 and it won’t open! Am attempting to contact their techies.

    1. Hi Ian,

      I’ve just seen I’m on 13.1.3 so it looks like I’m a few updates behind (I’m sure I have autoupdate on!).

      I’ll update tonight and try again.

      Always worth deleting the app and re-installing if you have issues with it.


      The Reverend

      1. i have auto-update on and so far it has never updated automatically! Certainly not straight away when the latest updates come out. I wonder whether it deliberately staggers it so not everyone hits the download location at once..

  8. Morning All – is it just me or are details against today’s (13/11/2019) ‘Show And Tell’ missing?
    What am I meant to be sharing? haha

    1. Hi Paddy,

      Its missing for me also – I just added some text and completed it.

      If they reset it then I get a bonus 50 points.
      If they don’t, then I dont have to remember to enter it later.


      The Reverend

  9. I had the same problem, had to delete the app and reinstall and it works fine again. Just a little annoyed as I’ve missed out on 50 points as a result and that’ll probably be the difference between getting into VIP this month.

    1. Hi, I also won the VIP prize in August and I also didn’t receive anything within the time limit they specified.
      I too, upon querying the whereabouts of the prize, received a £15 Amazon voucher, which I too am struggling to equate to being a VIP. Every other prize in August was worth more than £15, some considerably more.
      I don’t want to whinge as it is free but it definitely isn’t a prize worth having when bigger prizes are won for far less effort in terms of collecting points.
      Disappointed ☹️

  10. Sorry to hijack the Reverend’s excellent thread again but the issues I reported above have been rectified by Virgin Red in their latest update (4.30.1) this morning. The techies knew there was an issue and have promptly fixed it. Now, will I get into the VIP vault this month?

  11. Hi all, just had a message saying they apologise for the disruption and to use the code SORRY200 for 200 bonus points, it’s worked for me.

  12. I’ve had to delete & reinstall the app twice this week as it was crashing constantly on startup before loading the main screen. Emailed tech support and after a few emails back & forth they’re saying a new update has hit the app stores fixing the issues and to use code ‘sorry200’ for a bonus 200pts for the inconvenience & to cover any missed pts (I only missed a 25pts this & that once so am quids in!

  13. Thanks again for a Brilliant page Reverend always helpful 🙂
    Due to the Sorry code given last week I’ve made it into the final vault already, I’m not complaining but do wonder if its getting easier to get in there now.

  14. I’ve been doing virgin red for over 2 years now and not won a thing!

    But… I entered the competition they had on the virgin red app for verified virgin media customers for 4 tickets to see frozen 2 in a private screening including complementary treats. Not expecting to win but I actually won! Finally I won something I’m so happy and going have very happy children too!

  15. Does anybody carry on after they’ve opened all the vaults? I’ve just unlocked the last vault but feel there should be some incentive to carry on

    1. Hi Adam,

      I tend to keep doing all the things until the last quiz/show and tell. If I can carry them over then I don’t do them.



      The Reverend

    2. I have but nothing happens!

      It’s actually worth not doing the quiz and the show and tell at the end of the month and seeing if they are still active when the new month starts.

  16. Hi, I was wondering if I should keep my last quiz for next month to give me a head start or is there another one comes out on the last day? Thank you for giving us all these wonderful clues etc.

    1. Hi Lindsay,
      there will another quiz out on the 28th (every Monday and Thursday) so this quiz will be gone before the end of November so you might as well just enter it.

  17. I’m in the VIP vault anyway but has anyone else tried to use the extra codes (just because), only to find that they can’t open up the tab? It happened last month and again yesterday. It doesn’t really matter but I like to use what I can.

  18. Morning All,

    Well this is my closest yet to the vault – 3 days to go but still 250 points needed!!!

    Must try harder! C+ haha

    Have a great day everyone.

    1. Hi Paddy,

      I think you’ll struggle unless you haven’t included today’s points.

      75 points tomorrow
      50 points Friday
      25 points saturday

      I recommend you don’t do the quiz tomorrow and you’ll be able to roll it over to next month.



      The Reverend

    1. Hi Laura,

      This week’s show & tell has a xmas theme. Try re-installing the app as that usually fixes any issues.


      The Reverend

  19. Just been emailed that I have won one of the two £250 gift cards from the November Vaults! First time of winning anything from Virgin Red since starting to use the app YEARS ago. Can anyone remember what outlet the gift card was for?

    1. Hi Elise,

      That is the most excellent news! Happy Christmas to you, indeed!


      What are you planning on spending it on?


      The Reverend

  20. I won last months VIP vault my prize was some marshmallows and drinking chocolate
    I know it’s a Free comp but why call it VIP !!!! When it’s clearly not …
