An email arrives from avios.com, encouraging me to take advantage of their special deal for buying Avios.
Until October 26th, I can get up to 6,000 bonus Avios when I make a purchase. Details are here. The biggest package is 24,000 Avios points with a further 6,000 for free – a total of 30,000 Avios for £399. That is 1.33p per Avios.
Meanwhile, I take a quick look at www.flybmi.com, which is still selling BMI Diamond Club miles, transferable 1:1 into Avios. 24,000 BMI miles will cost me £303. With no special offer or promotion, I am still paying only 1.26p per Avios!
Although, of course, with www.flybmi.com being closed down on 27th October, you could argue that this is also a limited time offer after all ….
