A new British Airways promotional code has appeared – this is the first one to launch this year as far as I know.
This new deal is in partnership with deals site LivingSocial, although you do not need to be a member to take part.
The deal is £15 off a £100+ short-haul flight from London Gatwick.
Here are the terms and conditions:
Booking period: 28 February – 7 March 2014
Travel period: 1 March – 12 April 2014
Discount: £15 off per booking, minimum spend of £100
Cabin: Euro Traveller, flights from London Gatwick to Europe
Europe, in this context, appears to mean Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bari, Bordeaux, Catania, Dubrovnik, Edinburgh, Faro, Geneva, Genoa, Glasgow, Ibiza, Innsbruck, Jersey, Lanzarote, Larnaca, Malaga, Malta, Marrakech, Naples, Nice, Paphos, Pisa, Rome, Salzburg, Tenerife, Thessaloniki, Tiran, Turin, Venice and Verona.
UK domestic flights, as you can see, are included. (I did a dummy booking to check.) This is despite the fact the terms and conditions say they are not!
You cannot combine this offer with ‘part pay with Avios’.
If you are booking for more than one person and the spend per passenger is over £100, it would make sense to book each person separately and save £15 on each. (Remember, though, that free seat selection in this scenario would only be for status cardholders as the other passengers would be on separate bookings.)
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2021)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards. Both have increased sign-up bonuses until 2nd November 2021:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points, such as:
The 30,000 points bonus on Amex Gold runs to 10th November 2021. The 60,000 points bonus on The Platinum Card runs to 2nd November 2021.
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:
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies. This card has a limited time offer of 60,000 Avios when you sign up:
