Between 26 November and 14 December you earn double Avios at the following retailers:

  • Apple Store

There is also a 250 Avios bonus for first-time avios.com eshoppers, which is triggered with any purchase over £25.

As always, do compare cashback rates at Quidco and TopCashback as well, as even with double Avios they may not always be the best deal.

    Very pleased to see this offer back again. I found the Charles Tyrwhitt offer particularly generous.

  • Raffles says:

    I’d take the cash! Life is too short to mess about for meagre amounts. Some merchants even sneak off other ‘costs’ before calculating the miles anyway, so even knocking off VAT you are still a bit high sometimes.

  • Roger Stacey says:

    A question: Since I am a BA Silver Tier Executive Club member with an American (Chase Bank) BA Visa card, will any of the offers you post apply to me, or does one need a British credit card for most of them?

      You will need a UK Amex for the Membership Rewards promotions that Amex runs and that I discuss. Most BA-run promos, though, are open to anyone. You just need to filter out the ones which don’t work for you.
