We have been looking at a few niche Avios partners recently.
In one of the odder and lesser known Avios partnerships, London-focussed estate agent Chestertons is offering Avios points to anyone who uses it to rent out or sell a UK residential property.
There are only two bits of small print you need to know:
You earn 1 Avios point per £1 in either avios.com or British Airways Executive Club, based on the ex-VAT amount you pay to them in fees
You CANNOT retrospectively claim Avios points. If you have an existing contract with them, it is too late – it must be agreed as part of your initial fee contract.
The exception is if you are a landlord and they already let your property. In this case, you can arrange for Avios to be awarded from the next renewal date.
Personally, I would suggest that the decision on who should sell or rent out your property is too important to be swayed by a very modest number of Avios points.
However, if you were considering using the firm anyway, you might as well take the Avios if they are on offer.
PS. If you are a landlord, there is a brand new Avios partnership launching soon which will also be of interest to you. I have already seen the details and it could be very lucrative.
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.
