Three quick things which don’t justify their own post!
First … the 20,000 Starwood points (= 25,000 Avios) bonus on the Starwood American Express card is still showing on the americanexpress.co.uk website. This implies that the offer has been extended to 14th February for everyone, and not just the select few who were emailed about an extension. The offer has gone from the homepage of the Starwood website, though.
Second … I now have an end date for the current, very generous, BA Amex promotions. This is 3rd March. If you don’t have a BA Amex and are thinking about it, I would act before then.
Thirdly …. if you signed up for the Tesco / Blinkbox promotion, remember that you must register your Clubcard number on your Blinkbox account by 8th February to receive your 1,000 Clubcard points. These are due to be credited by 22nd February.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
