It’s been a slightly bizarre week here at Head for Points. When we found out last weekend that British Airways was going to be selling off its First Class crockery, we knew it would be of interest to the mainstream media and we sent out a couple of quotes.
Little did we know how it would take off. Last Monday was our biggest day ever for page views by a substantial margin.
We’ve been quoted in many newspaper stories including BBC News (where it was the most read story on Monday), The Telegraph, The Guardian and the Daily Mail. We’ve done a couple of radio interviews too.
I never expected that Rhys would end up, admittedly briefly, on NBC’s ‘Today’ breakfast show in the United States, however!
As its a quiet Sunday, I thought you might like to see the clip. It you are reading this via email, you need to visit the NBC website here.
We also did English-language Chinese TV!
Here is the clip, which you can also find on our (slightly neglected) YouTube channel here.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (November 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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
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.
