Avios Suitcase is a Facebook game that can be played by anyone with a Facebook and an avios.com (not ba.com) account. You earn points for completing a series of social media tasks.
Two new ‘badges’ are now available for you to pick up.
‘Big Reward Nomination’ earns you 50 Avios for sharing news of the ‘Avios Big Reward’ competition on your Facebook page. Remember to set your sharing privileges to ‘Only Me’ when you do this so that your friends do not see it.
#BigReward Twitter earns you 20 Avios when you send a tweet promoting the Big Reward competition. Handy to have a throwaway spare Twitter account for things like this ….
Avios points from Avios Suitcase no longer post overnight but seem to go across in a sweep at the end of the month.
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.
