If you are running low on reading material whilst sat at home, British Airways and The Economist have brought back their special offer for taking out a subscription.
As you can see at this link, you can earn up to 18,000 Avios with a new one-year subscription.
Here are the two options on offer if you are a UK resident:
Digital only: £179 with 15,000 Avios (1.19p per Avios)
Print and digital: £215 with 18,000 Avios (1.19p per Avios)
‘Print only’ subscriptions are no longer available.
Subscribing to The Economist could make sense just for the Avios bonus even if you have little intention of reading it in detail, although there are occasional opportunities to buy Avios points for nearer 1p each.
There are even better deals when looking at other countries. A digital only subscription for someone with a Canadian address snags you 15,000 Avios at 0.78p per point (C$199).
Pricing in the Eurozone is poorer than in the UK, working out at 1.58p per Avios on digital-only subscriptions in Belgium, France, Germany etc.
As always, if you are self-employed you may be happy writing off the subscription cost as a business expense. This would sharply reduce your price per Avios even further.
This offer runs until 31st October
