On Business is the small business loyalty scheme run by British Airways. Whilst hugely devalued a couple of years ago, there is no reason NOT to sign-up if you are a VAT-registered company as you still earn Avios and tier points as usual. My full review of British Airways On Business is here.
The following announcement appeared on the On Business website this week:
Programme enhancement: Previously, upgrading a booking using On Business Points could only be done if the booking was made direct with British Airways. As of 3 December 2018, bookings made by your Travel Agent can also be upgraded using your On Business Points. To upgrade a booking call your On Business Service Centre.
This is good news, and brings the upgrade rules for On Business points in line with the rules for Avios upgrades.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (December 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 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.
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.
