The Hackett / Avios partnership, which originally launched with an exclusive American Express tie-in, is now open to all. You no longer need to be a British Airways American Express cardholder to benefit.
Until 9th June, Hackett is offering new customers a bonus of 3,500 Avios when they spend £250.
This is on top of the standard Hackett earning rate of 10 Avios per £1 spent.
This offer will double-up with the ‘20% back on every Hackett purchase’ offer which is showing on a lot of American Express accounts at the moment. This offer also ends on 9th June.
How do I earn bonus Avios at Hackett?
This new offer is ONLY available to people who are members of the free Hackett 65B club.
If you are not already a member, you can join via this page of the Hackett website. Membership is free. You need to add your British Airways Executive Club or Iberia Plus number to your Hackett 65B club profile.
To earn your bonus 3,500 Avios:
you need to make a purchase of £250+ in one transaction before 9th June
your purchase can be in-store or online
you must give your 65B club number at the time of purchase
it must be the first ever order linked to your 65B club account
Be very careful with the final point. If you are an existing Hackett 65B club member, and you have made a purchase since joining, you won’t be eligible for the 3,500 Avios bonus – although you will get the standard ’10 Avios per £1′.
You might want to consider opening another 65B account and putting your next £250+ purchase through that …..
Avios will be credited within 35 days of the purchase. The bonus of 3,500 Avios will post separately.
Next steps …..
This offer looks attractive, especially for anyone who also has the American Express ‘20% back on all Hackett purchases’ offer showing on one of their cards. If you’ve got this, a £250 purchase would generate 2500 base Avios, 3500 bonus Avios and £50 cashback!
If you want confirmation of how this offer works, you will need to go to ba.com – it is on the ‘news and offers’ page here. I can’t find the offer on the Hackett site anywhere.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (February 2023)
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:
SPECIAL OFFER: Until 21st February 2023, the sign-up bonus on the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card is increased to 35,000 Avios from 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
