    • The £50 donation can only be given to charities. It can’t be given to individual fundraising campaigns and it can’t be taken as cash.
    • As the donation will come from us here at Virgin Money, it won’t be possible to “gift aid” donations. The “gift aid” rules don’t allow this, unfortunately.
    • Your donation can’t be refunded if you change your mind or select the wrong charity.
  4. When can you take up the offer?
    • The offer will be available on an ongoing basis until we withdraw it. We can withdraw the offer without giving you any advance notice, but we’ll try to give some notice if we can.
    • The offer is subject to availability. This means we will definitely withdraw the offer when the Virgin Wines promotional stock has been used up. We might also withdraw the offer if we need to make changes to the M Plus Account.
    • You don’t need to worry if we withdraw the offer when you’re part way through meeting the offer conditions. For example, if you’ve opened your account but haven’t transferred the £1,000 yet. As long as you’d submitted your account application before we withdraw the offer, you can still qualify. You’ll just need to continue to meet the rest of the conditions.

This includes suspending the offer or ending it early. We can make such changes without giving you notice. However, we’ll try our best to avoid making changes. And we’ll try to minimise any disappointment to you when we make changes.
