One of the lesser known British Airways Executive Club partners is market research group ‘Rewards for Thoughts‘. It is offering a generous 600 Avios points just for signing up and completing one survey.
You can find details on ba.com here.
It seems simple enough. Once you sign up, you will be emailed consumer surveys on an occasional basis.
You will earn 25 Avios for every short survey you complete and 50 Avios for every long survey. The points will post within five days, they promise.
To be honest, I doubt this is worth your time for such a small number of points but you could always do them on the train in the morning or in front of the TV.
However, when you complete your first survey you will receive a bonus of 600 Avios points. This is more like it!
Whether or not you cancel your membership after the points post from your first survey is up to you. It is worth joining and completing one survey.
You can join via this page of the British Airways website.

You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.

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 10,000 Avios.
