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 (January 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses.
There are special sign-up bonuses on both of the BA American Express cards until 28th February 2022. The bonus on the free card is doubled to 10,000 Avios and the bonus on the Premium Plus card is increased from 25,000 Avios to a huge 40,000 Avios.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points, such as:
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 30,000 Avios.
30,000 Avios is a special offer which runs to 4th February 2022.
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 45,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
45,000 Avios is a special offer which runs to 28th February 2022.
