Virgin Red Hints, Tips & Bonus Points

Previous Virgin Red Competitions


Virgin Red August Competition – Date Night

Virgin Red July Competition – Happy 2nd Birthday



  1. I saw the comments were empty so I thought I would start it off by saying Happy New Year everyone. I hope we all win something this year.

  2. Didn’t win anything despite unlocking every vault every month. Hopefully something well click this year. Happy New year!!

    1. Still there Neoma, there’s nothing on the app that tells you you’ll get points for sharing, just go into a vault you’ve already opened and the share symbol is at the top right

  3. To whoever was struggling to get verified with Virgin Trains a couple of days ago, try it today. They seem to have sorted the glitch in the system.

    1. I keep trying to get verified with Virgin Trains but it keeps coming up with
      Sorry some error occurred with VCO verification “

    1. Hello Dan,

      Great news on the win! A few people in my comments won last year and it is always excellent to hear when people do.



      The Reverend

  4. I’ve been playing a few months and not won anything yet! This page has been a huge help at getting points though, thanks!

  5. My VR icon has a 1 on it, but I have completed everything and there’s no message in my email. What should I be finding? I wouldn’t want to miss a win. Thanks all! 🙂

    1. @ Carol, you’re not missing anything, it’s a last chance for 10% hols. Not competition related.

  6. The first tea bags were made of paper in medieval China. That little nugget of knowledge cost me 50 points! Bah! Should have checked here first.

    1. Further to this thread, I contacted Virgin Red and they added my 50 points. This is the second time that I’ve dealt with them and they have been excellent on both occasions. Really good customer service.

    1. Hello David,

      It looks like Virgin Red have updated the question – they sometimes do this when people complain about one of the answers. It previously read ‘what were teabags originally made out of?’


      The Reverend

  7. Apologies, but I am tea geek. Thomas Sullivan was a US Tea Trader who sent samples of his tea offerings in silk pouches. Some of the recipients thought that this was for convenient brewing and in 1906 the ‘teabag’ was born.

    Doesn’t help with the points accumulation but both answers are correct and I just could not resist a tea subject

  8. Reading the above I think I need to get into the habit of doing the quiz early on in the day like earlier than the 10am ish I tend to do it then revisit it again later on to see if there’s been any resets. As a verified on only two person I usually miss out on the VIP Vault.

  9. I googled for ages trying to find that soup answer and couldn’t find it, LOL! I’m a bit of an insomniac so was trying to put myself back to sleep at 4 AM 🙂

  10. Two questions: if you win, do you receive notice during the first 2 weeks of the month or do they notify people throughout the month?

    Is it just me, or has bonus points ground to a halt?

    Good Day All!

    1. I don’t know Carol, I’ve never had an email
      Still need 450 points to get to last vault this month so touch and go for me.

  11. I think if you haven’t heard within two weeks – you haven’t won 🙁

    No bonus points this month I think – so I will fall short by 100pts

  12. Hi.
    Congrats to all lucky winners. I have played since virgin red started, i have only missed opening 2 vaults in all the time i ‘ve played. Never won a thing ! Not a bean ! Am I Virgin Red’s unluckiest player ?

  13. Suzanne, I always say, “I couldn’t win if my name was the only one in a draw.” Let’s see which one of us wins first! Lol

  14. Just got a notification for REDMONDAY19 as a code for 50 points. The first couple of tries it said it couldn’t be redeemed, but it did work eventually

    1. Hi Chels,

      So was I! An easy extra 50pts there! I’ve commented on today’s update to let people know.


      The Reverend

  15. Just a quick question…

    I’ve only got 25 points left to go into the last vault after today’s this or that, (which I will get into tomorrow using tomorrow’s this or that!) my question is how long does the quizzes stay active for? If I don’t do the quiz today and try save it for Friday when the February one starts will it last that long? I know that the this and that’s don’t work after the day is up but how long does the quizzes and show and tells stay up for? May sound like a stupid question but just wondering if it’s worth saving it for Friday?

    1. Hi Maria,

      The next quiz will be on Thursday so you might as well do this one, and then ‘carry over’ the next one.



      The Reverend

  16. Thank you the Reverend

    Also not sure if anyone is aware but there’s a £1K virgin holiday voucher giveaway its gone up on the app today and it’s thw first tile on the app

      1. It was really weird, it just popped up saying thank you for being a loyal virgin media customer and gave me 25 points so no code to input sorry

  17. How long do the show and tells stay up for please? Basically with today’s I’d still need 150 points tomorrow for VIP, that’s not going to happen without a code so wondered if I could save that one for Feb?

      1. Hi Kevin,

        I was about to say the same time – The ‘Show & Tell’ are up for a week but the quiz is twice a week.


        The Reverend

  18. With today’s points and the allowed five vault shares I’ve only got 75 points to go so I should reach VIP vault tomorrow, and I still have my Show and Tell to carry over.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I think there are a few people who are saving these for February. Its a short month so I don’t know what Virgin Red will handle the points required for VIP.



      The Reverend

  19. I’ve made it into VIP on the last day, and can carry the quiz to help with the short month in feb. Thanks to all here for all your help.

  20. 2,900 points for January. Thanks for all your hints as usual Reverend! Shame we can’t ‘gift’ points to help people get into final vaults each month. Good luck everyone!

  21. Reverend avid follower for considerable time now.
    All hints followed and posted on social media
    Still short …
