Refer a friend FAQs
 

Refer a friend is a brilliant way of rewarding you for introducing your friends and family to Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile. It’s easy, too – just register your email address to get your unique referral link, or use your exclusive referral code that can be quoted in-store or over the phone.

If your friend successfully places an order through your link or code, you’ll both receive a cash reward 28 days after either the install of their services or delivery of a phone or SIM.

Share the good stuff and start referring your friends now!

Referring friends and family to Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile means you can pocket cash rewards.

If your referrals are successful, you can earn £50 each for a referral to Virgin Media, and for Virgin Mobile you’ll get up to £15 each for a SIM only referral or up to £50 each if you refer a mobile phone. You can see how much you’ve earnt by signing in to your referral account with Virgin Media’s referral partner, Aklamio. Just head here and click ‘sign in’.

And what’s more, you can refer as many mates as you like!

You can check out an overview of your referrals, their status, and the rewards you’ve earned by signing in to your referral account with Virgin Media’s referral partner, Aklamio. Just head here and click ‘sign in’. We’ll also email you as soon as your referral account is credited from a successful referral.

 

Your friend will be eligible for the reward at the same time as you are. After your friend has had their services installed for 28 days, or if it’s a mobile order 28 days after the phone or SIM is delivered, you’ll both be eligible for a reward providing they’ve not cancelled their new contract within this time.

Once the cancellation period has expired, we’ll send your rewards to Virgin Media’s referral partner, Aklamio. In some cases, it can take up to five weeks after your mate’s services have been installed or their phone delivered for Aklamio to pop the reward in your referral accounts. Aklamio will contact you when the rewards have been confirmed, and both of you can have it paid into either your bank account or PayPal account at any time from your referral accounts.

Refer a friend works for any Virgin Media service; that’s superfast broadband, digital TV and home phone. It also works for Virgin Mobile pay monthly SIM only contracts and pay monthly mobile phones. There are a few offers that you can’t refer friends to including Pay As You Go mobile, Mates Rates, My Rates, Tribe, Partner Rates and any contract less than 12 months.

If your friend wants to get Virgin Media, just check they’re able to receive our services in their area. If you're not sure, visit our shop and check which services they can get (you’ll need their postcode and address).

 

  • You can only get a reward from referring the services, mobile phones and SIM contracts outlined in the ‘Can I refer any Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile package?’ question above.
  • For the order to be eligible for a reward, it needs to be placed using your unique referral link or code. So if you refer a friend online, they must use your referral link. If they take up your referral in a Virgin Media store, or with our Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile sales team over the phone then they need to quote your referral code at the point of sale.
  • The friend you refer must be new to Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile. You can’t refer an existing customer or anyone who’s had Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile within the last six months.
  • Any new customers who haven’t joined through the referral links or codes won’t be eligible for a cash reward.
  • The right to a reward is subject to the general terms and conditions of Virgin Media’s referral partner, Aklamio.
  • If the friend you refer becomes a new customer, and then cancels their services or mobile contract within 28 days, neither of you will be eligible for a reward.
  • You won’t be rewarded for referring a product to yourself, and for any referrals that extend or change an existing customer’s Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile contract.

As many as you like! The more the merrier. Just remember that you’ll only get a reward for successful referrals, meaning your friend has to have had their services installed for 28 days, or it’s been 28 days after their phone or SIM has been delivered.

Yes, you can! We make sure we reward everyone who successfully refers someone to us.

Virgin Media customers are also eligible for exclusive mobile deals, so there’s never been a better time to join.

Depending on what you recommend, the rewards can vary. Check out the rewards overview section to find out more.

Pending – Once an order has been successfully placed through a referral link or code, a pending reward will be received by both the referrer and their friend.

Confirmed – Once the 28 day cancellation period has expired, your reward will be confirmed ready to be paid out.

Rejected – Your reward will be rejected if the conditions have not been met. If you don’t think your reward should have been rejected, get in touch with Virgin Media’s referral partner Aklamio by calling them on 01576 820030 or sending an email to  virgin-media@aklamio.com

Rewards aren’t paid if:

  1. The friend you referred may have cancelled their Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile services
  2. The friend you referred didn’t join us via your unique referral link or code."
  3. The friend you referred is an existing customer or has had Virgin Media or Virgin Mobile within the last six months
