Buy Avios bonus

This is a poor deal, given that we regularly see bonuses of 40% or 50% these days.  The only positive aspect is that there is no minimum purchase.  The bonus kicks in with the smallest 1,000 Avios transaction.

If you have been waiting for a bonus to top-up your account for a redemption you are planning soon, this is obviously better than nothing and you should jump in.  I would NOT buy speculatively, however, as I’m fairly sure a better offer will be along within 2-3 months.

This HFP article from our ‘Avios Redemption University’ series shows you which is the cheapest way to buy Avios points from all of the options available.
