American Express has been running a promotion for the last week which unfortunately has passed us all by until it was nearly too late.  But only nearly …..

You can save £100 on a Club Europe (ie short-haul business class) ticket of £300 or more using code AMEXCFSCE1 at ba.com. 

You enter this code on the first pricing page you come to after selecting your flights where, until ‘Total Price To Pay’ it says ‘Promotion code?’ in small print.

Club Europe British Airways

Remember that you usually need to include a Saturday night away when booking to get the cheapest business class fares with British Airways.

Today, 17th October, is the last day to book.  You can travel at any point before 31st March 2013.

In theory you are meant to pay with an American Express card but I don’t know if the booking process enforces that as I did not follow it through that far.

    Unfortunately this is only valid on BA mainline. The voucher cannot be used on BA Citiflyer…

    Thanks for this – came in very handy for 2 CE tickets to VIE. Better than the 15% off offer that’s also around!
