Less than a month after the previous sign-up offer ended, American Express has again increased the sign-up bonuses on the two British Airways American Express credit cards.
This time the offer comes with a catch. It is ONLY available via a special link, available by clicking here.
You cannot get this deal via the British Airways or American Express websites. The link was sent to selected British Airways Executive Club members although there are no restrictions on who can use it.
The Premium Plus version, with the £150 annual fee, now offers 25,000 Avios instead of 18,000 Avios. You must spend £3,000 within three months to receive the bonus.
The basic, free, card now offers 9,000 Avios instead of 3,000 Avios. You must spend £1,000 within three months to receive the bonus.
The representative APR on the Premium Plus card is 56.4% variable including the fee based on a £1200 credit limit. The representative APR on the free card is 15.9% variable.
My full review of the benefits of the Premium Plus card is here. Amex’s own home page is here although the higher bonus does not show there.
My full review of the free card is here. This is actually the most improved deal jumping from 3,000 to 9,000 Avios. Amex’s own home page is here but, again, the higher bonus does not show. My reviews do not reflect the new bonus.
Note that the refer-a-friend deal cannot be combined with this offer.
This offer will be available for two weeks until July 31st. Remember that you MUST use this link to apply.
