A lot of HFP readers emailed me yesterday about an offer that has appeared on their online British Airways American Express statement.
It is a little weird in how it is set up.
When you buy 20,000 Avios for £335 via the standard ‘buy Avios’ page here, you will get a bonus of 10,000 Avios.
This assumes that:
you register for the offer on your BA Amex online statement page, and
you pay with your BA Amex
You MUST buy exactly 20,000 Avios. In total you will receive 30,000 Avios, although the bonus Avios will come via Amex and won’t arrive until your next BA Amex statement is generated.
You are paying 1.1p per Avios via this offer. This is OK but certainly not one to jump on unless you have a specific need for them.
To take advantage of the Amex offer, you need to buy via this link. The offer runs until 15th July.
This HFP article from our ‘Avios Redemption University’ series shows you how to buy Avios points and which route is the best value from all of the options available.
