British Airways has launched a competition for all British Airways American Express cardholders to promote #BA100.

There are 100 prizes to be won – the full list is here – including two BA economy flights to anywhere you want to go.

Entering is easy:

British Airways american express competition

You need to register for the competition via this link on ba.com

(Last night, registration was not working unless you were already logged in – otherwise you simply got looped back to the BA home page. Oddly no personal information is requested during registration even though the rules imply it is needed.)

After registering, you need to book a British Airways flight via ba.com by 30th September

You only get one entry per person

Before anyone asks, it is not clear if an Avios redemption, booked via ba.com, will count.

The prizes are being provided by British Airways, Marriott, The Wine Flyer, England Rugby, The Langham, ATG, Brewdog, Avis, Union Coffee and Avios Group. Nothing from American Express itself, oddly!

The text says that you need to use a BA Amex to pay for your qualifying BA flight, but this is NOT in the official rules – although for safety I would do it anyway.

The link to register is here.  I would do it now, just in case you do end up booking a flight in the next six weeks.
