Avios has extended the current 30% bonus when you buy points until 1st October. However, a new Groupon Spain deal offers better value if you can take the risk that the admin process will run smoothly.
For the 30% bonus, you need to visit ba.com via this page in order to buy.
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.
Over at Groupon Spain …..
The Avios are not a steal at these prices either, but you will in most cases find them cheaper than the offical BA offer.
Here are the prices:
- 1,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €19 (1.68p)
- 2,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €29 (1.28p)
- 4,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €59 (1.30p)
- 8,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €109 (1.20p)
- 15,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €199 (1.17p)
- 20,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €259 (1.15p)
- 34,000 Iberia Plus Avios for €429 (1.11p)
You will need an Iberia Plus account to redeem your Groupon voucher, and you can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them across to British Airways Executive Club. Please remember that Iberia Plus accounts must be 90 days old before you can use ‘Combine My Avios’, so don’t open a new one specifically to take advantage of this deal.
Some people have had trouble getting their Avios recently due to IT issues with Groupon and Iberia. I can only hope that, in the four months since this offer last ran, they have sorted themselves out.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 2022)
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. 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:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
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 10,000 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.
