Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

BA On Business promotional code for 3,120 bonus points (worth 15,000-ish Avios)!

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

On Business is the other British Airways loyalty scheme!  It is aimed at companies, not individuals, and earns your business On Business points for every flight that you book.

It is important to note that the traveller ALSO receives their usual Avios when they fly.  On Business points are an extra bonus.  They can be redeemed for free flights, upgrades or Marriott hotel vouchers.

Redeeming for BA flights is an EXCELLENT deal.  Whilst you need to pay full taxes on European routes, availability – in ALL classes – is excellent.  This is because On Business rewards come from revenue tickets and not from the Avios availability ‘bucket’.  1 OB point gets you roughly the same flying distance as 5 Avios points.

On Business

Rather than repeat what I have written before, I recommend newcomers to On Business read the two part introduction that I wrote in December – Part 1 and Part 2.

There is currently an excellent sign-up bonus on offer.  It offers you 3,120 OB points via a special On Business promotional code.

Technically, this promotion is linked to BA’s new services from Leeds Bradford Airport.  However, you don’t need to be registered in that region to use the code.

To join On Business (you need a Companies House number), go to this link and add promotional code OBLBA1.  You will also still qualify for the usual new member bonus of triple points on the first six segments you credit.  You MUST sign up with an email address that is a company address and not a Yahoo / Gmail etc address, or your account will be blocked.

It is not clear when you receive the 3,120 points – whether they appear immediately or whether you need to credit a flight to the account first.  On their own, 3,120 points are good for a return flight to most of Europe.  In any event, you cannot redeem On Business points until TWO different people have credited flights to the account.

The closing date for signing up under this promotion is December 31st.

    I can confirm the 3120 bonus points appear immediately in your account!


    • Rob says:

      You can’t redeem them, though, until 2 different people have flown and credited a flight to the account

  • danksy says:

    Yes, but I’m planning a longhaul for the new year… presumably as BAEC member I’ll still get tier points? Also in the small print it seems that you can accrue points for flights booked on Iberia!

    • Rob says:

      You get your normal Avios and tier points when you credit a flight to OnBusiness – it works on top of Avios, not instead.

    OK I have the points and wish to redeem for return flight in Europe.

    3 of us traveling, same route same flights. Can we somehow redeem the points on this first booking? Is it possible to book 2 x tickets (different names same flight) crediting On Business account, then login and book the redemption flight for thrid person for free using the points (subject to flight availability I know).

    I have a horrible feeling that we have to save these points for a second trip?

    • Rob says:

      You can’t redeem, in theory, until your account has earned flights from 2 different paid travellers. So, unless you want to send a couple of people (doesn’t have to be the same people who will redeem) on a paid ticket up to Manchester or somewhere this weekend, you are stuffed.

    Thanks – not such a great deal for me!
