The current bonus of 40,000 Avios points for signing up for the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card ends on 1st August. This is a fantastic offer, substantially more than the usual bonus of 18,000 Avios. If you have been thinking about getting the card then now is definitely the time.
This is the sign-up link. This link has been advertised on the ba.com home page (as a banner ad) for some weeks and does not seem to be targetted. I see it, for instance, and I wouldn’t if it was targetted as a) I already have the card and b) BA thinks I live in Germany!
You still need to pay the £150 annual fee but for 40,000 Avios it is still a good deal. You need to spend £3,000 on the card within 3 months to trigger the bonus, which some people report is posting as 18,000 Avios as soon as you hit £3,000 with the balance posting later.
Note that Amex states in other ads for the BA Premium Plus American Express card that a £30,000 household income is required.
