Here is some great news for anyone thinking of getting the British Airways American Express cards. There is a very attractive sign-up offer again!
The free card is now offering a sign-up bonus of 9,000 Avios, up from 1,000 Avios. Apply here. The key benefits of this card are:
- 1 Avios per £1 spent
- 2-4-1 voucher for Avios redemptions when you spend £20,000 each card year
- Spend £1,000 in 3 months to trigger the bonus
The annual fee card (£150 fee) is now offering a sign-up bonus of 25,000 Avios, up from 6,000 Avios! Apply here. The key benefits of this card are:
- 1.5 Avios per £1 spent
- 2-4-1 voucher for Avios redemptions when you spend £10,000 each card year
- Spend £3,000 in 3 months to trigger the bonus
The 2-4-1 voucher that comes with the BA Amex is the best single deal in the whole UK loyalty card market. It can save you huge numbers of Avios – use it for two First Class tickets to California, for example, and the saving is 150,000 Avios! If you are heading to Asia, the saving will be even more. It is a fantastic deal. (You still need to pay the taxes on the free ticket.)
If you have any questions about the BA Amex credit cards, please post. I have had one since the day they were launched over 10 years ago, so I should be able to help. And if I can’t, someone else can I’m sure.
