Last week, British Airways American Express cardholders were sent unique promotional codes offering them £25 off a British Airways short haul flight.
The codes were unique to each individual. They need to be used by Monday evening and my wife and I, for two, will not be using ours.
What I thought we could do is give away our codes if we don’t need them so that other HfP readers can benefit – albeit that most readers in the UK will have a BA Amex and will have received a code anyway. You could possibly use a 2nd one though ….
This is what to do:
To give away a code:
If you have a £25 code that you will not be using, add a comment to the bottom of this article with the code in it. Do not hit ‘reply’ to another comment and stack it under an existing one. Fill in the comment box at the bottom of the page.
To use a code from someone else:
If you want to use a code, make your booking on ba.com and then add a comment IMMEDIATELY BELOW the code you have used to say that it no longer works. This means that nobody else will use it.
Before you try to use a code, remember that your flight must meet the following conditions:
You must book a return flight
You must spend over £100
You must travel between 1st December and 30th April
The code is valid for Euro Traveller or Club Europe – domestic flights are NOT included
The code is valid from Heathrow, Gatwick and London City only
‘Flight and Hotel’ or ‘Flight and Car’ packages are excluded
You must book by midnight on Monday 7th December
The rules say that you must pay with a British Airways American Express card but, in reality, that is not necessary.
Our two codes are listed below to get the ball rolling. If you are reading this via email, you will need to click through to the site to see the codes.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 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.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
