    Nectar points for Virgin trains

    Nectar points for Virgin trains 19th Dec 18 at 12:11 PM
    A while ago I mistakenly redeemed Nectar points for Virgin trains, not noticing that I could then only get East Coast Virgin (now LNER, I know).
    They expire in May but I have no likelihood of ever using them on that route.
    Do you know if they are transferable to someone else to use?
    Seems a shame to let them go to waste.

    If you have added the code to your LNER account (which was Virgin East Coast) already then they are locked to that account, and the only way you could put it to use would be to give someone the e-mail address and password for the account, having first sanitised it of your address and any credit card or other payment details associated with it. You can even change the e-mail address to a ficticious one, so that once the new owner logs on, as long as they know the log-in details, they then put their own details into the account and use it as if its their own.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I dont have an East Coast/LNER account as I live on the west coast line.
    Anyone who can use 35 of Nectar vouchers already converted into Train credit codes
    is welcome to them.

    Is it limited to LNER trains or can you book other rail companies' tickets through the LNER site with this credit?

    I'd have loved a PM with the code, seeing as I answered your query (or even a thanks!).

    I hope whoever got them has a good trip.

    Apologies, I had no clue they would have been of use to you. Thank you for your efforts to offer advice.

    They went to a relative 2 weeks after the original post but if anyone here had sent me a PM to me, they would have been politely offered

    Ok.

    It appeared that you made an offer on this forum to give them away on 4 Jan 2:05pm (post 3), and then one hour later you posted (post 6) that they had gone.

    I hope your relative enjoyed their trip.

    Most people post responses on this forum purely to help others and not in expectation of any codes or vouchers.

    Where in your post on 24th Dec does it say you could use them?
    Actually they were on offer to anyone subject to confirmation of transfer-ability from the 19th Dec. Hence "shame to let them go to waste"
    I'm genuinely sorry you have been so let down by me

    I feel similarly vexed that you did not send me the codes, despite not knowing I wanted them or posting on the thread. I hope your relative has a good trip (not really).

    It doesn't, because I offered advice how they could be used, which clearly your "relative" benefitted from. I'm not going to say "give them to me for free"

    If you had offered them, I'd have paid something for your trouble, or made a donation to a charity of your choice.

    End of thread.
