To, ahem, commemorate England’s World Cup defeat last night, British Airways has launched a three day promotion.
Until midnight on 14th July, you can save £66 on any long-haul BA flight.
You need to use promo code STILLPROUD on the price quote page at ba.com.
Here is a summary of the small print:
Minimum spend of £300 per person required
Flight must be BA marketed and BA operated (no codeshares etc)
Valid for travel until 30th June 2019
Valid for all booking classes
Only one booking per Executive Club member
Cannot be combined with ‘part pay with Avios’
Full details can be found on this special page of ba.com – do check the full rules before booking.
To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is the British Airways American Express Premium Plus card which earns double Avios (3 per £1) when you book at ba.com or via BA Holidays. You do not get double Avios if you book with the free British Airways American Express card.
Another option is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.
