In any effort to perk up bookings in its current sale, British Airways is offering an extra carrot if you make a booking before next Tuesday 15th.
Book any economy return flight – domestic, short or long haul – before Tuesday and you will receive 1,500 bonus Avios when you fly.
Here is the small print:
You MUST register in advance via this page on ba.com
You must fly between 1st October to 22nd October 2015 or 1st November to 13th December 2015
You must fly on “a published or corporate negotiated net fare return flight travelling in Euro Traveller, Domestic, World Traveller or World Traveller Plus (British Airways), Economy (Iberia and Iberia Express) and Main Cabin or Main Cabin Extra (American Airlines). Flight must depart and return to an airport in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland, on a British Airways, American Airlines, Iberia or Iberia Express operated service.”
You can receive the bonus for a maximum of four flights
If you were planning to make a booking in the sale, this is not a bad deal. If you value an Avios point at 1p you are effectively getting at £15 discount on a cheap European trip.
To get your bonus, you MUST go to this page on ba.com and click ‘Activate Offer’ before you book.
