News in brief:
Last call for the higher bonus on the Virgin credit cards
A very brief reminder that TOMORROW is the last day for the higher 10,000 and 25,000 mile bonuses on the Virgin Atlantic credit cards. Full details of the deal are here.
Last chance for the Avios / LOVEtheatre promotion
If you are spending the Bank Holiday planning out your social life for the next few weeks, remember that Avios has a new deal with LOVEtheatre.com. This allows you to earn 3 Avios points for every £1 you spend via their site.
Established in 1991, LOVEtheatre is a totally reputable ticket agency with access to seats for a wide range of events.
Until tomorrow, 31st May, you can earn 500 bonus Avios points with your first purchase of £50 or more.
There are three hoops to jump through to get this:
You must book via the link on this page at ba.com (or similar pages at avios.com and iberia.com)
You must book by 31st May for an event before 31st December
You must spend £50 or more
Apart from that, anything you buy from the site will count.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
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 10,500 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.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
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.
