Get 2,500 Avios back when you redeem your points for wine

Every year British Airways runs a Christmas promotion to encourage you to redeem Avios for cases of wine.

The 2018 version has not been widely advertised and appears to end today.  It is also a bit messy so you may need to keep a screenshot.

If you look at the ba.com Executive Club offers page, you see this:

“Now’s your last chance to stock up on any case of wine, champagne or prosecco for the Christmas holidays – order now and we’ll gift you up to 2,500 Avios back.

Why not try our surprise selection – a limited stock of 12 mixed wines carefully selected to offer variety and flavour for only 14,000 Avios.

Terms and conditions:
  1. Maximum award of 5,000 Avios per household.
  2. Award will be credited within 30 days of the end of the booking window.
  3. Offer applies to all 6 and 12 bottle cases of wine, Prosecco or Champagne.
  4. Surprise Selection is a limited stock case (500) and will be removed from sale when the stock has been sold.”

Redeem Avios for wine

The problem is that, when you click through to the wine redemption site (I can’t do a direct link because you need to log in) there is no mention of the offer at all.  You need to trust BA that you will get your 2,500 Avios rebated.

I am also slightly concerned by the phrase “up to 2,500 Avios back”.  Does that mean some orders will get you fewer than 2,500 Avios returned?  Does a 6-bottle case earn a smaller rebate?

With so many question marks over the offer I wouldn’t redeem just because of this carrot.  However, if you were thinking of trading some of your Avios for a case of wine this Christmas, I would do it today – the offer ends today, 12th December – rather tomorrow as you may get a few points back.
