Very quietly, all British Airways American Express 2-4-1 companion vouchers due to expire between 1st October 2020 and 31st March 2021 have been extended by a FURTHER six months.
(Gold Upgrade Vouchers with the same expiry dates have also been extended, but that is not the subject of this article.)
In addition, all new companion vouchers issued between 1st October and 31st March 2021 will come with a six month extension. This means that vouchers on the free British American Express will be issued for 18 months and those on the British Airways Premium Plus for 30 months.
So some companion vouchers have been extended twice?
Yes. Here is a screenshot from my wife’s account to prove it:
Note that the vouchers were issued in July 2018 and April 2019 and so should have expired in July 2020 and April 2021. (This is off a British Airways Premium Plus American Express so the voucher has a 2-year validity.)
The voucher from July 2018, which was due to expire in January 2021 after the first extension, is now due to expire in July 2021.
However, the other voucher – due to expire in October 2021 after the first extension – has NOT been extended further. This is because this new extension only applies to vouchers due to expire by 31st March 2021.
Hopefully you will see the same when you go into your British Airways Executive Club account.
