The Premium Plus version, with the £150 annual fee, is offering 25,000 Avios instead of 18,000 Avios.
The basic, free, card is offering 9,000 Avios instead of 3,000 Avios.
My full review of the benefits of the Premium Plus card is here. Please read it before applying.
My full review of the free card is here. This is actually the most improved deal jumping from 3,000 to 9,000 Avios.
Depending on how quickly you can spend the £1,000 (free card) or £3,000 (Premium Plus) to trigger the bonus, you may be able to get the sign-up bonus into your British Airways account in order to make a redemption before the Avios rates go up on April 28th.
Your Avios are sent across six days before your statement date so you would need to make the qualifying spend within the first six weeks of having the card in order to ensure that the bonus goes across on your 2nd statement in mid April.
The representative APR on the free card is 15.9% variable.
The representative APR on the Premium Plus card, including the annual fee, is 56.4% variable based on a notional £1200 credit limit.
