Free beer and kebabs from Virgin Mobile

Mobile phones

For anyone with a Virgin Mobile phone and slightly the worse for drink, here’s an offer you can’t refuse – more beer and a kebab, absolutely free!

Yes, the mobile company, recently acquired by NTL, is offering customers at what are described as "youth orientated" events the chance to text the word "beer" or "kebab" to a short code number to receive a text, containing a voucher for two free beers and a kebab.

Unfortunately, you can’t just nip into your local or your favourite kebab shop to get your freebies, you can only redeem them at bars and kebab vans fitted with special terminals. The company reckons the campaign was "a great way to reward customers". But only if you fall into the "youth" demographic obviously.
