Last month I wrote about Avios Suitcase, the new Avios app which is now available on Facebook.
If you didn’t play the app at the time, it is worth clicking on the link above and doing it. You should earn around 400 Avios by taking part, and it only takes a few minutes. Take a look at the comments below the article as well, as they explain how to get around some of the buggy issues that may crop up.
If you did play last month, a new badge is now available. This will earn you a whopping 20 Avios points.
The new badge is Twitter Follower and will link your Twitter account to follow @aviosuk. You can, of course, unfriend AviosUK immediately afterwards if you want, although to be fair they are very measured in what they send out – you won’t be drowing in tweets.
Whether it is worth the few seconds of your time required to earn just 20 Avios is up to you …..
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.
