However, British Airways has been emailing selected British Airways Executive Club members with a better offer.
This deal is effectively available to anyone who applies via the link above whether or not you received the email. It appears to have been very widely circulated given the number of copies forwarded to me.
The sign-up bonus offered in this email is the same one that was generally available from November to May:
9,000 miles when you get the free British Airways Amex card and spend £1000 within 90 days
25,000 miles when you get the £150 British Airways Premium Plus Amex card and spend £3000 within 90 days
There is clearly a risk that you may not receive the higher bonus if you use the link above. In my view this is unlikely, given how widely this mailing has gone out, and in any event you are not receiving anything more generous than what was available publicly for the first 5 months of this year.
The deadline to apply for these offers is July 25th.
