Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

British Airways American Express

There are two American Express cards that let you earn Avios directly: the free British Airways American Express card and the paid-for British Airways Premium Plus card.

If you are committed to British Airways, the Premium Plus Amex card is your best choice.  It comes with a 25,000 Avios sign-up bonus and a 2-4-1 companion voucher that could save you up to 200,000 Avios on your next flight redemption.

This article explains how to use the BA 2-4-1 companion voucher you earn on the British Airways American Express cards.

You can read our full review of the British Airways American Express card here and our British Airways Premium Plus American Express card review here.

You can apply for the free card here (5,000 Avios bonus) and the Premium Plus card here (25,000 Avios bonus).
