Back in early January, I highlighted the first in a series of promotions organised by Heathrow Airport under the title ‘Smart Travellers’. They are aimed – a little bizarrely – at getting more young people to use the airport.
British Airways initially offered £25 off a £100 flight. It has now upped the ante and is offering £50 off a European return flight costing £120 or more.
The only conditions are:
you must be under 25 (but the voucher applies to everyone on your booking, irrespective of age)
you must travel before 12th June
you must book a return short-haul flight in economy for £120 or more
The booking deadline you are given seems to be a fixed number of days from the day you request your discount code – the terms and conditions do not mention any cut-off booking deadline.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 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. 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.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
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.
