Back in September, I wrote a piece about Bicester Village, who had joined as a British Airways Executive Club partner.
Everything you need to know about Bicester, including my trip report out there (!), can be found in this Bicester Village post.
Until August 15th, you can earn 500% more Avios than usual!
At Bicester, you will earn 25 Avios points for every £4 you spend. At the European outlets owned by the same group, you will earn 25 Avios for every Euro 4 you spend, which is an even better deal.
All you need to do is to present your British Airways Executive Card and your receipts at the Welcome Centre before you leave.
Do try to avoid visiting Bicester at the weekends, though, as I’m not sure the stress would be worth even 500% bonus Avios.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
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.
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 10,500 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.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
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.
