Virgin Mobile launches prepay tariff with a bonus

With Daily Bonus, when a Virgin Mobile customer makes five minutes worth of calls a day to any landline or mobile, you get five minutes of calls free. The same applies to texts; if you send five texts a day, you'll get five free.


Daily Bonus, which is available to Virgin Mobile's new and existing customers, also boasts a new flat rate for calls, so customers can contact anyone on anybody at anytime for 15p a minute. Customers also get free voicemail and 24 hour access to Virgin Mobile's customer service team.


Virgin Mobile has also announced a new rewards scheme called Crave, which is available to all customers who register. Crave offers money off handset upgrades, free airtime for connecting a friend and two free music download tracks. Customers will also be eligible for money off vouchers for Tony and Guy,, La Senza, Virgin Holidays and Virgin Experiences.

From February 1 2008, new and existing Virgin Mobile customers will be able to sign up to the Daily Bonus tariff by texting BONUS to 789050, calling IVR on 789 or via the "Your Account" section at


How it works: In any day, after you have made 5 minutes of calls and sent 5 text messages that originate in the UK to either UK landlines (that's numbers beginning 01 or 02) or to Virgin Mobile and other UK mobile telephone numbers (we refer to all of these as Qualifying Numbers) then the next 5 minutes of calls and the next 5 text messages that you send to Qualifying Numbers that same day will be free. Your 5 minutes of free calls and your 5 free text messages per day are called your Free Allowance. You may earn free calls without the need to send 5 texts in a day and may earn free texts without the need to make 5 minutes of calls in a day. Calls to call forwarding services (that's numbers beginning 07744 and 07755) do not count as Qualifying Numbers and are excluded.
