    Hi can’t see this anywhere but does this include British Airways Holidays?

    The way the others describe it, it seems to suggest spend £N to get N Avios (no specific vendor)

    If you have the offer saved, what do the Ts and Cs say?

    It generally does not in the terms but enviably does track.

    Checked through the terms but doesn’t specify about whether it includes holidays or not? Feel like I saw it mentioned on here in an article on the main page but wondering if anyone has direct experience of it.

    Yes, I used the offer to pay a BA Holidays balance and it triggered the offer. Email received a couple of days later when transaction posted from pending and Avios showed in Amex app the next day.

    That is good to hear – nice little offer if you were eligible, congrats! 😀 😀

    THIS OFFER FINISHES TODAY…..

    I tried to make use of it but paid off a BA Holiday (against the rules) in euros (also against the rules) and did not get my bonus 2000 avios. Says it can take up to 90 days so might kick in down the line I guess.

    Is it new bookings only? I got them within a couple of days for paying for a new 241 booking, a bit of compo for BA’s surcharges I suppose (it was an old voucher so had to be ex-UK)!

    I thought I’d triggered it a couple of weeks ago until I read the small print. It has to include an ex UK flight, so CMB – LGW not counted.

    Nowhere does it say BA Holidays are against the rules.

    Flights must originate in a UK airport (so Malaga won’t be valid) and charged in GBP. You might get lucky with a rep not reading the rules correctly when you query it down the line?

    I’ve had Avios for previous offers using BA Holidays in the past.

    We’re looking to make a booking later now there is a sale on and split it between our two cards!

    This offer does post very promptly and triggers Amex emails too.

    I paid a part of my holiday balance (£201) just to test if it will trigger the bonus and it did. Points already on my account.

    I paid for transfers on an already booked holiday (Azores) and a deposit for another holiday – that seems to have triggered (shown in app).
